    Rams injury report a little longer on Wednesday

    October, 15, 2014
    By Nick Wagoner | ESPN.com

    EARTH CITY, Mo. -- Less than 48 hours after Monday night's loss to the San Francisco *****, the St. Louis Rams' injury report was a little longer Wednesday night as they began preparations for the Seattle Seahawks.

    In addition to names that have remained on the list in recent weeks such as cornerback Trumaine Johnson (knee) and cornerback Brandon McGee (foot), the Rams also added receiver Austin Pettis (ankle), center Tim Barnes (shoulder) and defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks (hand) to a list that includes nine players.

    Running back Zac Stacy (ankle) played against the Niners after appearing on last week's injury report but made a return appearance on the list Wednesday with an ankle ailment.

    Here's the full breakdown from Wednesday's practice:

    Did not participate: WR Austin Pettis (ankle), DL Ethan Westbrooks (hand), DT Alex Carrington (knee), C Tim Barnes (shoulder), RB Zac Stacy (ankle)

    Limited participation: CB Trumaine Johnson (knee), CB Brandon McGee (foot), RB Chase Reynolds (thigh)

    Full participation: OL Barrett Jones (back)

    Maybe we'll get to see Jones on the field sometime soon. I'd really like to see what he can do.

      I think the Rams have missed Trumaine Johnson, but I'm hoping they don't rush him back. He is part of the long-term plan, in my opinion. Let him get right before he is exposed to more hits.

        Would love to see Barrett Jones play a few games this season. It would be a great addition to have your Center, RG ( Saffold isn't going anymore with that contract), RT ( Barksdale still playing above average) and LG or LT down for next season.

        This way we can cut bait with Wells and Long to save some scratch to resign players/free agency.

            Tru's experience would definitely help the secondary, but to me that biggest problem with the pass coverage is the lack of pressure on the QB. Gaines is a rookie but has played better than a sixth round pick

              Bad time for Rams to lose DE Hayes (Includes full Rams' injury report)
              by MauiRam
              By Nick Wagoner

              EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams officially ruled out defensive end William Hayes for Thursday night's game against San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon.

              Hayes suffered a knee injury last week against Dallas and left the locker room on crutches with his knee wrapped. Although Hayes isn't technically a starter, he's one of the Rams' most valuable and versatile defenders.

              Not having Hayes available is never a good thing for the Rams but it could be particularly damaging this week.

              Hayes is the team's best run defender among the defensive ends and played a pair of strong games against San Francisco last season. His knack for setting the edge against the run as well as breaking through and stuffing it himself will be sorely missed against a team the Rams are expecting to return to its running roots this week.

              In the two meetings between the teams last season, Hayes had five tackles 1.5 sacks, a tackle for loss and a quarterback pressure.

              Taking Hayes out of the mix puts the onus on Chris Long, Robert Quinn and Eugene Sims to handle the bulk of the work at end. It also probably means rookie end Gerald Rivers will be active for the first time in his young career. Sims has proved a solid run stopper in the past and the Rams will need him to be on top of his game to help replace Hayes' production.

              Elsewhere on the injury report, the Rams also ruled out right tackle Rodger Saffold, who has a knee injury of his own. Like Hayes, Saffold also didn't participate in practice this week.

              Here's the full rundown on the injury report:

              Out: Hayes, Saffold
              Probable: WR Chris Givens (knee), LB James Laurinaitis (foot), TE Mike McNeill (chest), LG Chris Williams (foot), S T.J. McDonald (knee), RB Daryl Richardson (foot), LT Jake Long (foot).

              EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams' Friday injury report includes three running backs listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans, leaving the position somewhat in flux as the game approaches.

              Starter Zac Stacy took a little bit of a step back in Friday's practice as he went from full participation Thursday to limited participation Friday. He didn't practice at all Wednesday. Stacy moved around well Thursday but didn't do as much Friday though it's possible the Rams are managing the injury to ensure he'll be ready to go against the Titans.

              More tenuous, it appears is backup Daryl Richardson's status. Richardson didn't practice at all Friday or Wednesday and did only limited work Thursday as he continues to deal with a nagging foot/toe injury.

              Interestingly, it's undrafted rookie back Benny Cunningham who practiced in full all week but is still listed as questionable despite that participation. He's returning from an ankle injury that has kept him out the past couple of games.

              Also listed as questionable is defensive end Robert Quinn, who missed the past two days because of an illness. Quinn attended the practice Friday but did not participate.

              Here's the full breakdown:

              Out: G Harvey Dahl (knee)

              Questionable: Stacy, Richardson, Cunningham, Robert Quinn and Brady Quinn (hip)

              Probable: OT Jake Long (knee), C Scott Wells (thigh), WR Austin Pettis (thigh), QB Kellen Clemens (shoulder), S Darian Stewart (foot), CB Brandon McGee (illness)

              Of note for the Titans, linebacker Moise Fokou (knee) is out and safety Michael Griffin (quadriceps) and tackle David Stewart (shoulder) are questionable.

              Rams Injury Report Grows -- Again

              Rams injury report grows -- again

              BY KATHLEEN NELSON
              Monday, November 21, 2011

              The Rams' injury report Monday sounded like a broken record, getting more scratches with each playing.

              Cornerback Marquis Johnson was hospitalized because of an abdominal contusion. He will be kept for observation overnight.

              Offensive tackle Mark LeVoir suffered a Grade 1 pectoral muscle strain and is expected to be out two to four weeks.

              Linebacker Josh Hull re-aggravated a hamstring injury in the first quarter and probably will miss Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

              Offensive tackle Jason Smith (neck, concussion) was on the exercise bike Monday but experienced some symptoms when he reached 50 percent exertion level. He is unlikely to play Sunday and could be placed on injured reserve.

              Wide receivers Austin Pettis and Mark Clayton (knees) were listed as day-to-day, as were defensive end Chris Long (ankle) and cornerback Justin King, who received a shot Sunday because of ankle pain but had an MRI on his knee because of excessive swelling Monday.

              Defensive tackle Justin Bannan (shoulder) and linebacker James Laurinaitis (foot) underwent MRIs.

              Tight end Lance Kendricks (concussion) could practice Wednesday or Thursday.

              WR Danario Alexander (hamstring) ran Monday but reported tightness in his hamstring. Coach Steve Spagnuolo said "we'll be careful this week."

              Rams report: Right tackle Saffold ruled out of third consecutive game ..
              by MauiRam
              By Joe Lyons



              The Rams injury report is out and, as expected, right tackle Rodger Saffold has been ruled out of his third straight game with a knee injury.

              The Rams (1-3) will take on the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4) on Sunday at noon at the Edward Jones Dome.

              Others not practicing on Friday were defensive end William Hayes (knee), cornerback Cortland Finnegan (hamstring), cornerback Trumaine Johnson (illness) and defensive tackle Matt Conrath (concussion).

              Hayes and Finnegan are doubtful for the Jacksonville game, with Johnson and Conrath listed as questionable. Linebacker Will Witherspoon (hamstring) and cornerback Brandon McGee (thigh) were full-go in practice Friday and are probable for Sunday.

              The Jaguars, who had 14 on their Thursday report, ruled out six players on Friday _ tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf), wide receivers Mike Brown (back) and Stephen Burton (concussion), cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle), defensive tackle Jeremy Mincey (concussion) and safety Dwight Lowery (concussion).

              In addition, wideout Cecil Shorts, their top receiver this season with 26 catches and 337 yards, is questionable after sitting out Friday's practice with a groin injury.

              Rams Report: DE Chris Long Added To Injury List With A Hip Injury
              by r8rh8rmike
              Rams report: DE Chris Long added to injury list with a hip injury

              1 hour ago By Joe Lyons [email protected]

              After fully participating in Wednesday's practice, defensive end Chris Long appeared on the Rams' Thursday injury report with a hip injury. Long's participation in Thursday's practice was limited.

              Rams safety Darian Stewart (thigh) and cornerback Quinton Pointer (thigh) did not practice on Thursday. Pointer did some limited work on Tuesday.

              After sitting out Wednesday's practice, running back Daryl Richardson (foot) did limited work on Thursday.

              For the second consecutive day, tight end Cory Harkey (knee) worked out in full.

              For Atlanta, wide receiver Roddy White (ankle), defensive tackled Jonathan Babineaux (knee) and Sam Baker (tackle) did not practice and ex-Mizzou linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (knee) and cornerback Asante Samuel were limited for the second consecutive day.

              Wide receiver Julio Jones (knee) saw limited action Thursday after not practicing on Wednesday.

              Safety Thomas DeCoud (knee), defensive tackle Peria Jerry (knee) and defensive end Cliff Matthews (neck) were upgraded from limited to full participation on Thursday.

              RAM-BLINGS

              Linebacker Jonathan Stewart, a rookie free agent from Texas A&M, was added to the Rams' practice squad and returned to practice Thursday.

              Stewart, a 6-foot-3, 254-pounder, opened the season on the 53-man roster, but was released Tuesday to make room as running back Isaiah Pead returned from the suspended list. Stewart cleared waivers on Wednesday.

              Stewart, who was inactive for the Rams' season-opening victory over the Arizona Cardinals, was in on nine tackles during the preseason.

              Sunday's game in Atlanta will include the first three picks of the 2008 NFL Draft. Tackle Jake Long was selected with the No. 1 overall choice by the Miami Dolphins, the Rams chose defensive end Chris Long at No. 2 and the Falcons followed up with quarterback Matt Ryan with the third choice.

              Ryan and Falcons head coach Mike Smith are unbeaten in two games against the Rams. The host Falcons defeated St. Louis 31-27 on Dec. 28, 2008 and 34-17 in St. Louis on Nov. 21, 2010.

              The Rams, however, hold a 47-26-2 edge in the series overall.

              Jeff Fisher is 4-0 in his career against the Falcons.

              Wide receiver Tavon Austin, picked eighth overall last April, led all rookies in Week 1 with six receptions.
