    Donnie Avery misses Wednesday practice

    Donnie Avery misses Wednesday practice
    21 Oct 2009 8:50 PM

    Some news on the St. Louis Rams injury front worthy of note...i.e. noteworthy.

    WR Donnie Avery was on the sidelines for practice today. His hip was "too tight" during warmups. He expects to be on the practice field tomorrow. Stay tuned. If he practices tomorrow, there's a good chance he'll play this week. That's the good news.

    Now the bad news. The Rams top defensive lineman, James Hall, is still sitting with a groin injury he suffered last week against the Jags, and is likely to miss the Colts game this week. As you might guess, that hurts the Rams hope of getting pressure on Peyton Manning, meaning they'll be working in coverage a lot. Coverage...against Manning. Yikes.

    Speaking of coverage, the Rams do have some good news on that front. CB Ron Bartell is cleared after suffering a minor concussion. Joining him on the practice field today was SS James Butler, which comes at the right time on the heels of Will Witherspoon being traded.

    Too tight? No breaks or tears? Avery needs to be on the field Sunday, period.

    No better time for Chris Long to step it up when his team needs him to.

    I hate to say this but does it really matter?
