    Rams Practice Notes Sept 7

    Rams Practice Notes Sept 7
    by Brian Stull

    Marc Bulger again took only snaps out of the shotgun, a precaution as Steve Spagnuolo shared the plan is to wait until Wednesday before Bulger moves under center.

    There could be a couple of more targets to throw to by then, as Spags acknowledged the Rams are thin at WR, and could add another to the practice squad.

    Sean Walker is currently the only WR on the practice squad.

    While Adam Carriker is understandably upset with being out for the season with shoulder surgery, John Greco is breathing a sigh of relief that the pin inserted into his left wrist should only keep him out of action for two-three weeks.

    Richie Incognito was full go in practice and said the time off for a mild knee sprain was actually a blessing in disguise to rest up before the start of the season.

    Samkon Gado and Leonard Little also had full practices. Spagnulo stated they were being over-cautious with Craig Dahl (day-to-day) in keeping him out, and while Larry Grant is still day-to-day, he was out and will not play in Seattle.

    No decision has been made on the starting RT, although Jason Smith did get some work there today.

    Geez. I'm anxious to know if J Smith will start there!

    Carriker needs to do something. Take steroids or something. haha

    Beer, we drafted a raw, but major upside tackle. If he doesn't start that doesn't mean that he's a bust, it means that he's raw, and not quite ready to start. Big deal. I'm sure by the end of the season, he'll be the starting right tackle, which I see as possibly his best position, given that he's a better run blocker than a pass protector from what I have seen and heard. Jason Smith will impress you by the end of the year, I guarantee it.

    So Wednesday we'll hopefully hear that Bulger is having NO problems with taking snaps from under center.

    It's good to see Gado in full practice mode. He's a gamer, no doubt about that.

    the bulger situation is still looking to be a problem when they said he was only going ot be out 2 weeks . . . it made me wonder how long this injury really going to affect his play and he still has not taken a snap from under center worries me
    Torry Holt Dont play that

    Re: Rams Practice Notes Sept 7

    Rotoworld reported about Bulger not having taken snaps under center, and said that a shotgun only offense is better than starting Kyle Boller at QB.

    il have to agree.

    If Bulger can only take snaps out of the shotgun its not a massive deal. I just hope he doesnt reinjure his finger if he tries to take a snap from under center

    If Bulger only takes snaps from shotgun, put Jason Smith as the starting right tackle for crying out loud.

    Not that I think that Bulger will have any need to run a shotgun only offense, but I wonder how well Jackson can catch the shotgun snap and how well Jason Brown can direct the ball off to the side a little for him to get the direct snap in a "WildJax" trick snap?

    I need to give it some time.

    It was a freak thing to happen...I'm not too worried with Bulger going back under center.

    Jason Brown and MB must be practicing and working overtime. I too say that they'll be fine.

    It must be interesting to see how much attention is always given to a pro sports player (Bulger) that is ailing and/or not 100% functional. Doctors, trainers. Coaches. All looking forward to improving the health of the player, giving them the best there is in medical technology and know-how. These are multi-million dollar men we're talking about...

    May our boys be ready indeed. GO RAMS!
