I haven’t had a chance to watch the preseason game from Saturday yet, but I plan on getting the DVR running later tonight so I can discuss what was by most accounts an underwhelming performance. Until then, I thought I would give the injury update from the game.

Jerome Murphy and Brandon McRae will both be out this week after suffering lateral ankle sprains. Craig Dahl (mild ankle sprain), Dominic Douglas (sublexed shoulder), and Kevin Dockery (R hip pointer) are day to day, but they should be able to get back on the field some time this week. Josh Brown, James Butler, John Greco, Justin King, and Eugene Sims will be out again this week. Not good for Sims and King, who are fighting for spots right now. CJ Ah You, Ron Bartell, Jacob Bell, Brandon Gibson, Mardy Gilyard, and Bradley Fletcher will all be back in a limited capacity this week, and Steven Jackson could get some work as well.

In an update on the Brian Westbrook situation, we will have to see what happens. It sounds like the reports of Westbrook coming to St. Louis might have been a bit off, but they are certainly still in the running.

  • Betty White

    Betty White Here. Westbrook signed with the 49ers, which is probably the best team for him. He signed for only 250 k less, he’ll be will be playing for a (potential) playoff team, and gore has had some issue with injuries in the past. Good signing for both parties in my mind. As far as the Rams, I think the coach is getting real fed up with injuries to the O Line. I heard a interview today where he told the reporters to stop asking questions about the OLINE. Hopefully Safford’s back injury is not that bad and can be back soon enough. We REALLY need to have a solid line to protect Bradford.

  • Reality

    It’s to the Rams benefit that they have injuries. Then they have an excuse to suck instead of being the talentless pack of softies that they truly are.
