St. Louis Rams’ offensive tackle Rodger Saffold has returned to practice on a limited basis after suffering a dislocated left shoulder in the Rams’ preseason opener, according to ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner Saffold was seen participating in individual drills Tuesday, and became even more involved in practice Wednesday when the young tackle was seen during a few of the Rams’ team drills as well. It is still unknown whether Saffold will be cleared to play in their next preseason game in Denver, though the coaches will likely play it safe. Saffold has become a key contributor on the Rams offensive line since his arrival. Though he was apparently involved in some offseason drama regarding the organizations offseason acquisition of left tackle Jake Long, he has since remained quiet on the subject. Now, Saffold is at least giving the appearance of being content with his transition to the right side, even if it is just for the time being. The Rams’ offensive line continuity will be imperative to their success this season as they watched their all-time career rushing leader Steven Jackson depart via free agency. As a result, they will likely install a running-back-by-committee approach with second-year backs Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead sharing the workload. St. Louis also brought in a plethora of receiving options for their franchise quarterback, Sam Bradford. With all of the change on offense, allowing Bradford time in the pocket will be key for the Rams to compete in the rugged NFC West. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
