Found October 13, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
According to ProFootballWeekly.com, there’s at least one source within the St. Louis Rams’ organization that believes wide receiver Danny Amendola could be back sooner than expected from his separated AC joint.
“Our Rams sources are putting their money on WR Danny Amendola returning to action much sooner than later after suffering a shoulder joint injury that normally takes anywhere from 4-8 weeks to sufficiently heal. ‘A month to recover might be optimistic, but Danny’s a quick healer, and I know he’s going to want to come back,’ one source said. ‘This particular injury doesn’t have a great track record as far as quick recovery goes. It took (Cowboys QB) Tony Romo 11 weeks to recover from the same injury, but don’t forget, he does have to throw the ball. The (Rams’) bye week (in Week Nine) will help,’” wrote PFW.
The Rams certainly need Amendola back as soon as possible, he’s quarterback Sam Bradford’s most reliable target.

Fisher's Rams will keep going north on South Beach

We all make choices in life. They range from serious to frivolous: Which car to drive, where to attend college, whom to approach at a nightclub, whom to date, whom to call at 3 a.m. if we need to post bond. We face decisions each day. Go back to January, and Jeff Fisher had a choice between South Florida sun and a Midwest franchise that had set. The St. Louis Rams were as stable...

Week 5 Preview – St. Louis Rams vs. Miami Dolphins

Turns out, Miami is the number one defense against the run in the...
