ST. LOUIS (AP) — It’ll be later in the week before the St. Louis Rams learn whether rookie cornerback E.J. Gaines can recover from a concussion in time for the season finale.

Coach Jeff Fisher also said Monday he’s sticking with center Scott Wells, who botched two critical shotgun snaps in Sunday’s 37-27 loss to the Giants. Wells has worn a brace on his right elbow half the season.

Fisher said Gaines was improved, but the rookie will follow the concussion evaluation protocol.

Gaines had his helmet knocked off in a collision with teammate T.J. McDonald. Gaines had been diving to defend a pass as McDonald also converged on Odell Beckham Jr.

Fisher said the Rams (6-9) had no other serious injury concerns heading into this week’s game at Seattle.
