The St. Louis Rams are unusually healthy for this time of year, according to their official web site. Only two names were listed with ailments for week 8 of the regular season as the Rams prepare to take on the division-rival Seattle Seahawks. That should be comforting for any team at this point in the season. Unfortunately for St. Louis, however, they are healthy everywhere but the quarterback position as Rams fans had the misfortune of watching franchise quarterback Sam Bradford injured and subsequently placed on season-ending Injured Reserve this past week. It now appears that former first-round draft pick Brady Quinn will likely get the start at quarterback for the St. Louis Rams. Quinn was signed by the team just days ago as the news of Bradford’s injury was confirmed by team doctors. St. Louis also has perennial backup Kellen Clemens and unproven youngster Austin Davis on their roster, none of which inspire a great deal of faith for fans. However, it should be noted that Rams fans once found a franchise quarterback seemingly out of nowhere as Kurt Warner was forced into the starting lineup due to injury. He would go on to lead the franchise to a Super Bowl victory and a place in history as “the Greatest Show on Turf.” While nobody is quite sure of head coach Jeff Fisher’s intentions at quarterback for the remainder of the season, he may get veteran cornerback Cortland Finnegan back from a lingering thigh injury. Finnegan has not played for St. Louis since week 4 against the San Francisco 49ers’. His attitude and veteran leadership will be needed as the Rams prepare for what will no doubt be a rough second-half of the season. Here is the St. Louis Rams official practice participation report according to their official web site: RB Benny Cunningham (ankle) – Did Not Participate in Practice CB Cortland Finnegan (thigh) – Limited Participant in Practice
