The St. Louis Rams have released fullback and special teams captain Brit Miller to make room for center Scott Wells. Wells has been on injured reserve after breaking a bone in his left foot in the opener but was activated Tuesday. Coach Jeff Fisher said Monday he was hopeful Wells would start Sunday at Arizona. The 26-year-old Miller had been with St. Louis since early in the 2010 season and started one game this year. He appeared in nine games and was not active for the first time last week in a loss to the Jets. Fisher said Monday that because of the Jets defense he thought going with three tight ends was advisable and Cory Harkey was elevated from the practice squad to make his debut for St. Louis at that position.

Danny Amendola back in walking boot

Danny Amendola was pretty much a decoy last week, limited by a heel injury. The St. Louis Rams leading wide receiver was back in a walking boot Wednesday and watching at practice. Amendola, who has 51 catches and an 11.3-yard average, was optimistic about playing Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. He was on the field for just seven snaps in last week's victory at Arizona...

Fisher, Rams dealing with 5-game winless stretch

The St. Louis Rams are struggling through a five-game winless stretch.

Also, how easily chances at a victory can slip away. Fisher was critical of some officiating calls in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the New York Jets, notably...
