    Rams DB's Bartell, Atogwe Held Out Of Practice

    Rams DBs Bartell, Atogwe held out of practice
    6 hours, 13 minutes ago


    ST. LOUIS (AP)St. Louis Rams cornerback Ron Bartell and safety O.J. Atogwe did not practice Wednesday while nursing shoulder injuries. Two other members of the secondary, cornerback Justin King and safety Craig Dahl, were limited with shoulder and knee woes.

    Bartell sustained a stinger in the first half Sunday at Arizona and was uncertain Wednesday whether hed be able to play this weekend at New Orleans. Bartell, the Rams top coverage cornerback, said his injury would probably be a factor the rest of the season but said he felt better.

    Its one of those things, if you take a hit the wrong way or tackle somebody the wrong way its something that just may happen, Bartell said. Its not something Im going to concern myself with. If Im able to get my strength back Ill be out there on Sunday.

    Atogwe said his shoulder was a little sore but he would be ready for the Saints. Coach Steve Spagnuolo said King aggravated an earlier injury.

    Atogwe is second on the team with 69 tackles with two interceptions and has been a big factor on the blitz with two sacks and five quarterback hits.

    Another cornerback, rookie Jerome Murphy, was limited with a hamstring injury. Murphy did not play last week.

    This really concerns me with the increasing chances of Drew Brees being able to pick off our secondary one by one...... Lets hope these guys will make it well to Friday's practice or hope our second stringers will at least step up.

    Sometimes I look at Rams injury reports and think we should be allowed to have a 73 man roster.

    We are pretty banged up at the secondary. Atogwe stated that he will be fine which is definently good. I really hope I see Bartell back there. Also, Quincy Butler had a solid game last week so Murphy should get time to rest.

    Well, looks like Brees will have an even easier game against the secondary...

    All of the DBs will have to bring their best game if we want a good shot at the Saints. Even if the D-line is getting to Brees, he is still good enough where he can get rid of that ball quickly and make those hard passes.

    So pretty much key here is the defensive line has to bring the pain.

    Let's not forget that before we even begin to worry about the passing attack, we have to stop their running game. Chris Ivory's been running hard these past few weeks...

    Obviously we are only concerned about the injuries to our players. My point is the rest of the NFL teams have their fair share of injuries as well. We just don't concern ourselves with them.

    GO RAMS!!!

    Spot on. I think some teams may be overlooking that, especially with Pierre Thomas being injured. We're going to have to stay focused on all aspects of their offense to be successful.
