Found November 28, 2012 on Fox Sports Midwest:
ST. LOUIS (AP) Danny Amendola was pretty much a decoy last week, limited by a heel injury. The St. Louis Rams leading wide receiver was back in a walking boot Wednesday and watching at practice. Amendola, who has 51 catches and an 11.3-yard average, was optimistic about playing Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. He was on the field for just seven snaps in last week's victory at Arizona with one reception for 38 yards. Amendola says he was injured when a defensive player fell on his right leg near the goal line two weeks ago against the Jets. He aggravated the injury making a cut near the end of the first half of that game and was a surprise starter against the Cardinals after being listed as doubtful. Center Scott Wells also did not practice Wednesday, likely helping him ease back into the routine. Wells made his first start last week since breaking his left foot in the opener.

Rodger Saffold: quietly elite in pass protection

I'll be honest, I didn't expect to be writing this article. Not after Rodger Saffold's rookie promise evaporated in an all-around-awful 2011 season. Not after Saffold worked his way back to the starting lineup, only to be laid out flat on a stretcher in the first quarter of his first home game back. Nope, I was, rather petulantly and rather foolishly, willing to write...

Sam Bradford and his supporting cast: Some perspective, please!
