ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Rams cornerback Ron Bartell and safety O.J. Atogwe did not practice Wednesday while nursing shoulder injuries. A third member of the secondary, Justin King, was limited with a shoulder injury.

Bartell sustained a stinger in the first half Sunday at Arizona and was uncertain Wednesday whether he’d be able to play this weekend at New Orleans. Bartell, the Rams’ top coverage cornerback, said his injury would probably be a factor the rest of the season.

Atogwe said his shoulder was a little sore but he would be ready for the Saints. Coach Steve Spagnuolo said King aggravated an earlier injury.
