    CB Murphy Tweaks Hamstring

    CB Murphy tweaks hamstring

    BY JIM THOMAS
    Thursday, December 2, 2010

    Even without Kurt Warner at quarterback, Arizona still uses a lot of three_ and four-wide receiver sets. So the St. Louis Rams will need just about every cornerback available for Sunday's game in Glendale, Ariz.

    But rookie Jerome Murphy, who has been the Rams' third or fourth corner most of the season, was limited in practice Thursday after tweaking his hamstring.

    "That happened in special teams practice," coach Steve Spagnuolo said.

    If Murphy can't go against the Big Red, he would be replaced by either Quincy Butler or Kevin Dockery. Butler has participated in only a handful of plays since signing with the team Oct. 25 and has been inactive the past three games. Dockery has been inactive the past two games following his rocky start Nov. 14 in San Francisco.

    Fullback Mike Karney, who was on the pregame inactive list in Denver, did not practice Thursday because of what Spagnuolo said was "a groin issue."

    The rest of the team's official injury report was unchanged from Wednesday: defensive tackle Darell Scott (foot) was limited and punter Donnie Jones (calf) and cornerback Justin King (shoulder) were full participation Thursday.

    I'm all for giving Butler a go. We've seen what Dockrey has done previously and it hasn't been pretty. He didn't make the active roster last week.

    Completely agree, IMHO. DOckery has been given the opportunity to show he still had it from the Giants, but he clearly doesnt. Butler probably has more upside of the two. He is probably the better bet right now
