ST. LOUIS -- As a general rule, NFL players do not lose their job just because they get hurt. Seems fair enough. To get demoted because of a hamstring pull would be like penalizing a 9-to-5 worker for catching the flu.
But general rules can be broken, too.
Look at the Rams. Safety Rodney McLeod has all but taken over the starting job that belonged to Darian Stewart entering the...
ST. LOUIS -- Unlike many NFL coaches, Rams coach Jeff Fisher is not one who typically rests his first-teamers in the preseason finale. Sam Bradford, for example, played long enough to throw for three touchdowns in the final exhibition a year ago.
Fisher, however, might be changing his way of thinking for the Rams' preseason finale Thursday night against the Super Bowl champion...
According to Michael David Smith of Profootballtalk.com, St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher said that what Rams fans saw in the preseason with Tavon Austin is just the tip of the iceberg.

Noticed something some what strange during the St. Louis Rams opening preseason game. Second year Chris Givens standing on the sidelines with his pads off and helmet put away because his night was over. He ran with the first team offense and now he was done for the evening. Running off the field to catch a breather and kneeling down was another second year receiver...
The St.Louis Rams are counting on their new dynamic playmaker Tavon Austin to add some spark to their offense.
Their immediate plan according to coach Jeff Fisher is that they won’t unveil their deployment for Austin until the regular season.
Fisher was on the Jim Rome Show and made it clear that Austin will be a force when it counts for real.

I know my grandmother is looking down on me now, said Gerald Rivers. Rivers went undrafted out of Ole Miss after sitting out his senior year in part because of the passing of his grandmother. She's proud of me now, Rivers said and adding, it sparked a fire in me. Not playing his senior season hampered his draft value, and now Rivers is fighting to maintai...

Jo-Lonn Dunbar finished with a career high 115 combined tackles, 4.5 sacks and two interceptions in his first season, in St. Louis. Undrafted out of Boston College, Dunbar was a quick learner during training camp earning his spot on the New Orleans Saints roster. Part of the Saints fir...
The St. Louis Rams head into their final preseason game against Baltimore at 0-3.
Losses aside, the goal for the Rams and the Super Bowl champion Ravens (2-1) is to emerge healthy from Thursday night's game. Both teams probably have just a handful of roster spots up for grabs.
The Rams have at least one starting spot to decide with Chris Williams apparently holding an edge...
ST. LOUIS (AP) A 21-second YouTube video helped Canadian long snapper Jorgen Hus get a taste of training camp with the St. Louis Rams. That he's back on the street after the first round of cuts did not come as a surprise to anyone.
Long before the dreaded summons earlier this week, he had been appreciative of the opportunity and realistic. Hopeful also that the video accumulated...
If you let Jeff Fisher tell it, the St. Louis Rams have big plans for rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin.
What Fisher won’t do, is tell you what exactly the Rams have in store for Austin. While talking to Jim Rome, Fisher stated that the “Rams haven’t shown what they really plan to do.”
We have a pretty good idea [how we'll use him] but we haven’t shown it,” Fisher...
DENVER -- If the Miami Dolphins had gotten into a bidding war to bring back Jake Long, could they have won it?
While it is generally believed the Dolphins weren't willing to pay the left tackle as a free agent an amount similar to the four-year, 36 million deal he got last March from St. Louis, Long said the Dolphins had little chance of signing him after his first...
