    Hall IRed; Hagens return man

    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    12/06/2007

    It looks like continuing problems with a high ankle sprain will sideline Rams wide receiver-kick returner Dante Hall for the rest of the season.

    Hall was not at practice Wednesday, and team sources say the ankle injury will make Hall the 11th Rams player to go on the injured reserve list this season.
    With the team on the practice field Thursday, coach Scott Linehan was not immediately available for comment. Hall, 29, was a two-time Pro Bowler with Kansas City and was acquired by the Rams in a pre-draft trade with the Chiefs to bolster the Ramsí long-suffering return game.

    Hall delivered as advertised when healthy. This season, he ranks third in the NFL in punt returns with a 15.1 average, including an 85-yard return for a touchdown against Dallas. He ranks 11th in the league in kickoff returns with a 25.1-yard average, including an 84-yard return in the season opener against Carolina.

    Hall also has seen duty as the teamís No. 4 receiver, with five catches for 27 yards. But he has missed five of the past seven games with the ankle injury. He originally suffered the injury on a 36-yard punt return at the end of the third quarter Oct. 7 against Arizona.

    After sitting out the next four games, plus the bye week, Hall returned against San Francisco and Seattle in November. But he aggravated the ankle injury against Seattle Nov. 25, and hasnít played since.

    AdvertisementHazelwood East High product Brandon Williams is next in line as a return man, but he suffered an ankle injury replacing Hall last week against Atlanta, and did not practice Wednesday. If Williams canít go, options included Jonathan Wade and Marques Hagans on kickoffs, and Hagans and Dane Looker on returns.

    hall has done a very admirable job all season when he has been healthy... i hope he is with us again next year because when he has been healthy he has shown nothing but brillant returns.... our return game has been solid all year... too bad we cannot put any good use to it...

    Rams | Hagans to be returner Week 14
    Thu, 6 Dec 2007 14:13:44 -0800

    St. Louis Rams WR Marques Hagans will return punts and kickoffs during the team's Week 14 game. He will also be the No. 5 wide receiver.

    Eleven Rams on injured reserve? I knew our injury troubles were bad, but 11 guys off the 54 man roster? Talk about snake-bitten.

    Stinks for Hall, but now Hagans gets some more shots to impress us. Every chance he's gotten so far he's taken advantage of it.

    That's around 20% of our roster on IR. Can it get much worse?

    Yes, hopefully he will be able to fulfill his 'muti-role' type of player reputation by returning kicks and perhaps progressive flashes as WR. This is Hagans time to shine in addition to being a ST player -- if our QB can string a couple of good plays for him.
