    Dockery, Ryan ruled out; Johnson up from practice squad

    BY JIM THOMAS | Posted: Saturday, September 18, 2010 2:30 pm


    The St. Louis Rams have ruled out cornerback Kevin Dockery (hamstring) and defensive tackle Clifton Ryan (migraine headaches) for Sunday's game against Oakland. Neither player was on the team flight for the Bay Area on Saturday. Dockery did not practice at all during the week after suffering his injury in the third quarter of the season open against Arizona. Ryan was hospitalized overnight Wednesday because of migraine headaches. He returned to Rams Park on Friday but didn't practice.
    Although Ryan hasn't had any setbacks, the team decided to keep him home as a precautionary measure.
    The Rams also released No. 3 quarterback Thaddeus Lewis, promoting cornerback Marquis Johnson from the practice squad to the active roster. With Dockery out and with Justin King's status uncertain because of a hamstring injury, the Rams needed another body at cornerback against the Raiders.

    Lewis released?

    Surprising, but I guess we'll probably see him on the PS.

    I'm a big DeSpags supporter but I can't get behind letting Lewis dangle out there in the market place even for a short time.Didn't the Rams try this two QB thing under Limpehan a few seasons ago? Null is still out there, as far as I know- he had a tryout for The Pats on Thursday but I don't think they signed him, but Lewis showed enough in preseason to tempt another team esp if another QB goes down elsewhere this Sunday. I just can't believe he was the most expendable guy on the roster.

    I don't think any team looks at him as anything more than a 3rd stringer, and I am not very aware of many teams trying to upgrade their 3rd string quarterback position. I doubt any team sees him as a developmental future starter worthy of eating up a space on the active roster over their current 3rd stringer right now. Undrafted rookie from Duke, teams won't be busting down the door to get him.

    As I said, injuries have a way of changing things quickly. What if Vick gets knocked out in Philly, for example? A mobile QB who has spent an off season in a similar system might start looking like a good back-up to Kolb who has a concussion.

    Or maybe another team decides to take a flier on the guy, and develop him.

    I hope we get him back.

    Wish we could be able to put Feeley on the Practice Squad instead.

    Wish we "could be able to put" Peoria on the PUP (Pessimistically Unable to Post) list. Now THAT would be funny.

    I really hope that no other QB than Bradford will have to start a game for the Rams for the next 10 years.
    Si vous croyez en vous, que vous avez de la fierté, et que vous ne lâchez jamais, vous serez un gagnant.
    Le prix de la victoire est chère, mais la récompense en vaut la peine.

    The Rams cut a guy who was going to be inactive on game day to make room for a guy who will be active on game day. That's the kind of decision you have to make when injuries have made you dreadfully thin at one position. Wouldn't be surprised to see Lewis resigned in a couple of days, but if by some chance someone else grabs him, it's not going to be the end of the world.

    Who's the #2 QB for the Rams today? Is AJ ready to go if necessary?

    Feeley returned to practice almost two weeks ago, so I'd assume he is...
