The Rams injury list grew by one on Thursday, as cornerback Justin King missed practice after injuring his shoulder earlier in the week. King apparently hurt the shoulder during practice on Wednesday, and he woke up with soreness Thursday. I don’t know the extent of the injury, but he is being called day-to-day so it shouldn’t be extremely serious. Also on the DNP list Thursday were Sam Bradford, AJ Feeley, James Hall, Chris Long and Mark LeVoir. No change on any of those guys, and it still seems highly likely that Bradford misses Sunday. For what it’s worth, Spags said he expects Long to play Sunday, which I think we all expected anyway.
In other bad injury news the team placed Brit Miller on IR, ending his 2011 season. Miller apparently suffered a knee injury during Monday’s game, and he tried to practice but was unable to go earlier this week. Spags said the team will likely use their tight ends in more blocking situations with Miller out, but the team could bring in a fullback at some point before the season is out.
The team did get some good news, as Craig Dahl, Eugene Sims, Stephen Spach and Josh Gordy all returned to practice in limited fashion. Fred Robbins and Quinn Porter were also limited participants.
