    Bruce probably won't be available for Colts

    Holt also is questionable for contest

    ST. LOUIS - Wide receiver Isaac Bruce is in danger of missing his third straight game because of a turf toe as he was listed as doubtful on Wednesday on the St. Louis Rams' injury report for their game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Torry Holt, the other half of the Rams' dynamic receiving duo, was listed as questionable on Monday night against the Colts because of a knee injury.

    Holt kept playing in the Rams' 37-31 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday after hurting his knee on a 3-yard reception with 5:45 left in the second quarter.

    Bruce missed the Rams' loss against the New York Giants and the Seahawks after injuring his toe during the team's win over the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 25.

    The Rams have only three other wide receivers -- Kevin Curtis, Shaun McDonald and Dane Looker -- on their 53-man roster.

    Cornerback DeJuan Groce, the Rams' best coverman, also was listed as questionable after injuring his hamstring muscle in his left leg early in the second quarter against the Seahawks. He sat out the rest of the game.

    Not having Groce would be a major blow to a beleagured defense facing the challenge of stopping one of the NFL's most explosive passing attacks.

    Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has completed 96 of 145 passes (66.2 percent) for 1,123 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions.

    The Colts' receiving trio of Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne and Brandon Stokely have combined for 63 catches for 748 yards and four touchdowns this season.

    The Rams got some good news on the injury front as defensive end Leonard Little (lower back) and tight end Brandon Manumaleuna (knee) are both listed as probable.

    The Rams didn't practice Tuesday and Wednesday as has been the routine before Monday night games in recent years.

    The Rams will be on the practice field today, but coach Mike Martz, who has taken an indefinite leave of absence because of health problems, won't be there.

    Martz, who is currently hosptialized, could miss six weeks or more because of a bacterial infection of a heart value.

    Joe Vitt, assisant head coach and linebackers coach, has been named as interim head coach.

    If Bruce and Holt are both inactive for the game, who becomes the #4 receiver for the game, one of the Tight Ends?

    Maybe Furrey, and stick in OJ to replace him at safety.

    In a way, I'm glad Bruce won't play so he can continue getting that toe back in shape, ready for 100% action, perhaps right after the Bye week.

    But hopefully Torry Holt will be upgraded to 'probable' by Monday night! :football:

    Holt is KEY player. Period.
