Bulger expected to start for Rams
By Mike Sando

A few Rams-related notes coming out of Week 5:
- The team expects Marc Bulger to start at quarterback against the Jaguars in Week 6 after Kyle Boller struggled and suffered a concussion against the Vikings. The Jaguars' pass defense struggled against the Cardinals and Seahawks. Is there an outside chance the Rams get a victory this week?
- Veteran receiver Tim Carter is returning to the Rams after the team placed defensive tackle Gary Gibson on injured reserve. Carter provides needed depth and experience at the position. His speed impressed the Rams during minicamps, but Carter did not show enough during the exhibition season to earn a spot.
- Defensive end Chris Long will undergo a chest scan to identify the source of discomfort there. The Rams have been carrying extra players on the defensive line, where coach Steve Spagnuolo likes to rotate players.
