Well as we know, Drew Bennett had a touchdown catch in last week’s game against the Cardinals and will be starting for a second straight week when the Rams face off against the Ravens in Baltimore this Sunday. Bennett will be filling in once again for the injured Isaac Bruce, who is getting a little shaky right now as the Rams number two pass catcher. However, Bennett could easily be taking over that spot, and sooner than we may think. There are also a bunch of newer, younger wide recievers who are giving us Rams fans a little glimpse into the future.
“I’m definitely looking forward to it, making sure I’m on top of my assignments and just trying to make plays when given the opportunity,” said Marques Hagans, a former fifth round pick who made his NFL debut at wideout in week 5.
For right now, the main guys are Bennett, Hagans, and of course Torry Holt who has been looming in the shadows so to speak after a off game on Sunday (5 catches, 89 yards. Some off day). Still, he can create alot of problems for teams. Just because this team is ravaged by injuries- and believe me they have been- doesn’t mean we can’t patch up those spots. There is a ton of depth at WR that is being displayed now because of the injury to Bruce.
However, Holt missed practice yesterday and Dane Looker had a blood transfusion after bruising his thigh in week 4 against the Cowboys. He could barely walk yesterday, and according to the Post-Dispatch could be sidelined for several weeks. Hagans ultimately finds himself as one of the Rams main elements on offense. And hey, why shouldn’t he sieze the opportunity?
Right now, I’m concerned with how were gonna get passed the Ravens this Sunday. The Niners put up a good fight, even with Trent Dilfer starting. However, they have Patrick Willis who has simply been beastly. If we can get Tye Hill back for this game, I don’t see it being a long shot, neccessarily.
