Coach Jeff Fisher: “We’re closing the gap.”
Rams #1 draft pick this season could miss final game of year, due to injury.
Rams also say DT Matt Conrath won’t play against Tampa Bay
St. Louis hopes to keep on winning against NFC South opponents as they have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coming to town this weekend, and they have a short injury report that looks short, but not good on paper.
The St. Louis Rams are no longer “The Greatest Show on Turf”. In fact, the team’s victory over the visiting New Orleans Saints was the polar opposite of the formula used in the early 2000’s, where a high-powered offense ruled the day. The current Rams are quickly creating an identity as a defensive juggernaut, something that has to please head coach Jeff Fisher.
No surprise, as injured Rams wide receiver did not practice all week.
Dahl practiced on Wednesday, but had to sit out on Thursday, while neither Austin nor Jenkins has practiced any this week.
Rams rookie wide receiver is questionable for Saints game with an ankle injury.
Rams’ first-round draft pick made an electrifying 56-yard run that set up St. Louis’ lone touchdown on Sunday, but suffered an ankle injury on the play and missed the rest of the game.
Turnovers, penalties, and ineffective play prove too much to overcome as Rams fall to Arizona team that now has eight wins and is battling for an NFC playoff spot.
