    With Boller Gimpy, "Excited" Null Gets More Work

    With Boller gimpy, “excited” Null gets more work
    By Bill Coats
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch


    Heading into his third Sunday as the St. Louis Rams’ backup quarterback, rookie Keith Null acknowledged his excitement. “It is exciting as the No. 2, being prepared, getting some reps in practice and have a little confidence as you go in,” said Null, who has been No. 3 behind Marc Bulger and Kyle Boller most of the season.

    Bulger (leg) will miss his third game in a row when the Rams take on the Titans in Nashville (kickoff is at 3:05 p.m.). Boller is expected to start again, although the sore thigh that he’s been nursing this week has added a bit of suspense to the situation.

    After a full practice Wednesday, Boller was sore Thursday. So his reps Thursday and today were decreased, and Null’s were increased. Coach Steve Spagnuolo said after practice today that Boller should be ready to go.

    “It’s a little bit better today, but not as good as we really want it to be,” Spagnuolo said. “We’ve got 48 hours, so we’ll see. I don’t want to look in a crystal ball. You’ve got to play with two legs, can’t play with one.”

    Of course, Null doesn’t want to play at Boller’s expense. But he said he’d love to see some action, perhaps late in a game. “I think any time you can get in as a backup and get some experience, it’s definitely beneficial,” he said. “I would take that opportunity, for sure.”

    Notes & quotes:

    *RB Steven Jackson (back) participated in several plays during the early “install” period at practice but didn’t do anything else on the field.

    *T Jason Smith (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

    *These players were limited today: Boller, WR Brandon Gibson (ankle), LB James Laurinaitis (shoulder), DT Darell Scott (neck), WR Donnie Avery (shoulder) and FB Mike Karney (neck).

    *Asked how the Rams hoped to contain Titans RB Chris Johnson, the NFL’s leading rusher, Spagnuolo quipped, “Oh, man . . . get 12 guys on the field?”

    Jeez, what is with Jason Smith. I hope he is doing OK.

    Regardless if Null starts, I'd like to see him play at some point just to see what he's got.


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    No. Bad spags. I told you not to do that again.

    Well....putting 13 on the field helped block a field goal.
