QB Marc Bulger suffered a “small fracture” on his pinky finger during a center exchange this morning and will miss at least two weeks. The injury is in fact on his throwing hand and it leaves the Rams with QB Kyle Boller as the starter for the next two preseason games.
Thankfully its the preseason, or else you’d probably see a lot more negativity and a few more exclamation points in this post. Bulger should recover nicely and be back in time for the final preseason game, although I’m sure the Rams would be willing to have him miss the entire preseason if it means him being 100% for the opener.
This might not be a completely terrible thing either. Now Bulger can sit back and just soak the offense in and maybe even gain a new perspective on it from simply watching. Or maybe I’m a hopeless optimist. Either way, Bulger to Boller is a huge downgrade so I think I speak for the entire Ram Nation when I say “Oh Trent Green, Where Art Thou?”
