Updating Rams' injuries following Falcons game

Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo updated injuries Saturday, less than 24 hours after the team's exhibition game against the Falcons:

  • Receiver Donnie Avery remains sidelined by his foot injury, as expected.

  • Guard Jacob Bell (concussion) will do some running early in the week. Bell's symptoms have not cleared. The team will test him against neurological baselines once remaining symptoms clear.

  • Quarterback Marc Bulger remains sidelined by his broken pinky finger, as expected.

  • Receiver Tim Carter (groin) will do some running this coming week. His status for the next game is questionable.

  • Rookie receiver Brooks Foster underwent knee surgery Friday and will miss 6-8 weeks.

  • Tackle Phil Trautwein is day-to-day after suffering a back injury against the Falcons.

  • Tackle Alex Barron is day-to-day while dealing with knee swelling.

  • Defensive tackle Adam Carriker (ankle) probably will miss the next game.

  • Running back Kenneth Darby should not miss much time, if any, after injuring his knee against the Falcons.

  • Defensive end James Hall did not suffer significant damage to his sternum, an X-ray showed, but he'll be in pain.

Brock Berlin and Darell Scott played through knee injuries and seemed to come out OK, Spagnuolo said.
