St. Louis Rams cornerback Ron Bartell, who provided quite a scare when he crumpled to the ground in obvious pain last week, is close to being ready for full action.

Bartell, who sprained his right ankle, got back on the field earlier in the week and on Wednesday, took part in limited team work.

“He really wanted to give it a test,” coach Steve Spagnuolo said. “He just did the red-zone stuff, so he didn’t have to do any long running. But it was good to see him out there.”

Also returning was running back Keith Toston, who had been sidelined for several days after taking a blow to the head.
