Found September 26, 2012 on Fox Sports Midwest:
ST. LOUIS Michael Brockers wouldnt say what he did with the big, bulky boot he was forced to wear on his right foot the past few weeks. But rest assured, he gladly disposed of it. Oh yeah, its gone, Brockers said. Thats a taboo. You dont want to keep that around. Get that thing away. The defensive lineman was back on the field Wednesday, practicing for the first time since suffering a high right ankle sprain during the second quarter of the Rams fourth and final preseason game. And if all goes well, the No. 14 overall pick could make his regular season NFL debut this Sunday. I think theres a pretty good chance I play Sunday, Brockers said. I did pretty well today, a little limited but I felt good on the ankle. It held up in individual drills. I felt pretty good. I am real anxious to get this thing started and help the defense out. I feel that this high ankle sprain has some more weeks to go but I feel like Im able to hold off offensive players and be able to make some plays....

Wiber: Is Daryl Richardson a better option at RB than Steven Jackson?

I think an apology is in order before I kick this article off. I am sorry Steven Jackson. You have spent your entire career playing for a woeful franchise. You have put up Hall of Fame numbers. You have been a first class citizen in the St. Louis community. You have been an outstanding teammate.  You could have went to another franchise and maybe go for a ring, but you chose...

ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson did not practice for the second straight day Thursday while nursing a nagging groin injury. While Jackson watches, rookie Daryl Richardson has been making his mark with Seattle up next on Sunday.

Rams rookie Zuerlein perfect so far on field goals

ST. LOUIS (AP) Looking for a sure thing on offense three games into the Jeff Fisher era with the St. Louis Rams? It might be Greg Zuerlein. The rookie kicker is 8 for 8 on field goals this season, including a 56-yarder last week - 1 yard shy of the franchise record. Sam Bradford passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns two weeks ago, but didn't get the Rams into the end zone...

St. Louis Rams: Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#22)

Last week: 22 (-11) Record: 1-2 Their defense is the real deal and they’ll play spoiler to a few teams. They’ve had a tough schedule, as well. However, the NFC is loaded and Sam Bradford is not a good enough quarterback to succeed behind this patchwork offensive line, which will remain patchwork for the foreseeable future. Steven Jackson is also at that age where running backs...

Rams State of the Offense Address

Scary as it may seem, this Rams offense has made progress. Okay, feel free to read on once you’re done face palming at the concept of this offense being an improvement. Writers Disclaimer: Be prepared for the tone of this article to swing from positive to negative, hopeful to panic and back again. The first two weeks of the NFL season were relatively encouraging...

“They abandoned the run” – maybe not

  Here we go again. Pundits everywhere are distressed that the Rams abandoned the run in the loss to the Bears. My first article after the Rams loss noted the Rams called for runs on only 26% of the plays in the Bears game. I called it an astonishingly low ratio. At the same time, I noted that I wanted to review the film before any conclusions could be drawn. http://www.ramsherd...

Rams notebook - weak links better identified

Although controversial calls — or, in some instances, the lack thereof — have certainly marred the first three weeks of the NFL season, an objective look at each team's performance will show that this is probably the most competitive season the league has had in a while. No one could have predicted the following tidbit before the season: only three teams (Arizona Cardinals...

Week 3 Review– St. Louis Rams vs. Chicago Bears

  In this review, I am humbled. The Rams did everything I asked and lost. In fact, part of the reason why they lost is they could not get away from the game plan I asked for. The bears were prepared for the steady Eddy approach set forth below, and they wanted the ball in the middle of the field. The bears flooded the middle of the field with linebackers and defensive backs...
