Found September 25, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The St. Louis Rams appear relatively healthy heading into their week 4 divisional matchup with the San Francisco 49ers’, according to their official team web site. Fortunately for fans, that is a luxury their opponent does not have. While a few of their skill position players were limited or non-participants in practice Monday, they were all back to work on Tuesday in some form. Among the players on the Rams practice list Monday were wide receiver Chris Givens and running back Daryl Richardson, who each practiced without limitation on Tuesday. It’s likely that head coach Jeff Fisher was just giving some rest to a few of his starters before their Thursday night game.It wasn’t all good news in St. Louis however. Tackle Rodger Saffold remained sidelined Tuesday with a knee injury. Fellow tackle Joe Barksdale also missed practice Tuesday though it was not injury related. On the defensive side of the ball, it appears the Rams only question mark for week 4 is defensive end William Hayes, who is sidelined with a knee injury. Here is Tuesday’s practice participation report for the St. Louis Rams according to their official team web site:T Joe Barksdale (non-injury related) – Did Not Participate in PracticeWR Chris Givens (knee) – Full Practice ParticipantDE William Hayes (knee) – Did Not Participate in PracticeLB James Laurenaitis (foot) – Full Practice ParticipantT Jake Long (foot) – Full Practice ParticipantFS T.J.

McNeal: The Rams have plenty to figure out before they truly can move forward

ST. LOUIS -- The Rams have not proven to be that adept at playing football this month but they appear to be very proficient at forgetting about it. At least when it comes to Sunday's 31-7 humiliating loss to the Cowboys. While Rams fans still are recovering from their team's total breakdown that wasn't supposed to happen with Jeff Fisher as coach, Rams players have moved...

Sam Bradford extension talks would be welcomed by the Rams

Sam Bradford is a decent NFL starter but hasn’t lived up the contract of a former first overall pick (pre-rookie cap), so it’s no surprise that Bradford would rather wait a year or two before discussing a new deal, however the Rams front office appears confident enough in Bradford that they apparently won’t be looking to go another direction and wouldn’t be opposed to talks...

Slow starts from Rams, 49ers put a damper on potential grudge match

ST. LOUIS -- If you're trying to work yourself into a frenzy for this, do yourself a favor and stop. Whatever seed of a rivalry the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers planted last year has been neglected in 2013. It needs water fast before it dries up and dies. "It's a division opponent," Rams coach Jeff Fisher says. "It's a big challenge for us on...

Rams on pace to field worst-ever pass defense

We are the 71%. We are the team that turns every opposing quarterback into a Hall of Fame thrower. We are the team that you can bank on for somebody's career day each and every week, whether it's Carson Palmer, Julio Jones, or DeMarco Murray.  We. Are. Soft.  This is not the identity that St Louisans expected to take on when Jeff Fisher was hired. This is not the...

Week 3 was a step way down because they never got going, and now must rebound in a hurry.

Preview: Rams have issues, 49ers have more, and both need a win

The problems the St. Louis Rams are having on the field might pale in comparison to the overall issues surrounding the San Francisco 49ers. Mired in their first losing stretch under coach Jim Harbaugh and minus at least one key player, the visiting 49ers look to avoid a third consecutive defeat Thursday night against a Rams team that gave them plenty of trouble in 2012. In two...
