    Test Shows Avery's Hip Injury Apparently Isn't Serious

    Tests show Avery’s hip injury apparently isn’t serious
    By Bill Coats
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch


    The best news the St. Louis Rams received Monday was that the hip injury sustained by wide receiver Donnie Avery on Sunday in Jacksonville doesn’t appear to be serious. X-rays Sunday were negative, as was an MRI exam Monday. Coach Steve Spagnuolo said Avery would be day-to-day.

    “I’m sure he’s sore,” Spagnuolo said. “I know one thing: He was already talking about getting back out there (Sunday) in the locker room. He was talking about, ‘I’ll be out there practicing, Coach, I’ll be out there.’ That’s him. He wants to come back. That’s a good problem to have.”

    Notes & quotes:

    *Injury report: DE C.J. Ah You (sprained ankle), CB Ron Bartell (mild concussion), LB Larry Grant (bruised ribs), DE James Hall (groin), G Richie Incognito (sprained ankle), LB Will Witherspoon (hip/back). None of the injuries is considered serious.

    *Spagnuolo reported that S James Butler, out since suffering knee injury Sept. 27 vs. Green Bay, had an encouraging workout Monday. “Hopefully we can get him out there and get him back in the fold this week. That would be good,” Spagnuolo said.

    *The Jaguars ran 84 plays in the 23-20 OT win, vs. just 53 for the Rams, and had a time-of-possession edge of 13 1/2 minutes.

    *Spagnuolo gave the players Monday off. “I told them to watch the tape on their own, and then I told them to get away from it,” Spagnuolo said. “We’ll come back on Wednesday and face a challenge of play the Colts. It’ll all be about Indianapolis and we’ll be moving on.”

    *After Avery was hurt, Tim Carter went down. That left the Rams with just two WRs. Carter was back in after missing just one play, though. Had he stayed on the sideline, TE Daniel Fells would’ve filled in at WR.

    *In addition to chasing around former teammate Torry Holt, who caught five passes for 101 yards, and taking a blow to the head, Bartell also was charged with calling the coin toss before OT. “I went over to Ron and said, ‘Look, call it right,’” Spagnuolo quipped. He didn’t, and the Rams never saw the ball again.

    All for now . . .

    I dont like this, i know that the guys are tired. I know they played hard and are disappointed. But sapgs should have had the team watch tape together and walked through mistakes like every monday.

    Thank God. As teams continue cramming into the box to stop Jackson from scoring, Avery is probably our only legitimate TD threat.

    He probably first strained the hip doing his stupid touchdown dance last week....

    But seriously, this guy has got to stay healthy. He's the closest thing we have to a feature receiver and he's sorely needed. He's got to shake the reputation that he's made out of glass.

    Good to hear Avery isn't too bad. He's probably our best shot at winning right now....
