Rams Injury updates

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

 

Despite yesterday’s scare, St. Louis Rams defensive end Leonard Little reports no pain in his right knee. In fact coach Steve Spagnuolo said Little has been lobbying him to play in Thursday’s preseason game in Cincinnati. But parroting the head coach’s official description of his status, Little said he is “day-to-day.” In Tuesday’s practice, Little did individual work but was held out of “team” drills. An MRI exam showed Little merely had a sprained knee according to Spagnuolo.

 

Meanwhile, wide receiver Donnie Avery took part in 11-on-11 drills in practice Tuesday, albeit as a member of the Rams’ scout team. Avery looked fast as ever, caught two touchdown passes in a red zone session, and told reporters it’s a certainty that he will play in the regular-season opener Sept. 13 in Seattle. Avery suffered a fractured foot in the Aug. 7 scrimmage at Lindenwood University.

 

Defensive tackle Adam Carriker is close to returning from an ankle injury that also took place in the Lindenwood scrimmage. Carriker took a turn in 11-on-11 work Tuesday, albeit with the third-string defense. Carriker said it’s only a matter of strengthening the ankle before he’s ready to play.

 

Little, Carriker and Avery are not expected to play against the Bengals.

 

Looks good for Avery. But remember, despite his healing foot, he remains a Ram. :wacko:

I really like Avery. The guy is going to be a star in the league.

 

I like him too, but there are still too many holes in that offense (especially on the line) for him to be much of a factor this year. FWIW, the talk around here is that Laurent Robinson has pretty much been the guy to improve his stock in Avery's absense, or at least to be the guy that starts on the other side of him. In both preseason games, he's been one of the very few bright spots.

I took a shot on Robinson with my 14th round pick in a 16 round draft. Figured it couldn't hurt to snag him as a 4th or 5th WR.

Wait a minute. I thought Avery's injury was a 4-6 week deal?

 

 

If memory serves, week one (which he says is his target) would be almost exactly 4 weeks.
