EARTH CITY, Mo. -- Earlier this week, St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher said he hoped receiver Tavon Austin would practice at some point this week as he continues to battle an ankle injury.

Austin will have one more chance to do that Friday after he sitting out practice for the second consecutive day Thursday. Austin suffered the ankle injury near the end of the team's game against Arizona in Week 14. He did not practice last week and missed his first game against New Orleans. But Austin is out of his walking boot and appears to be moving around better.

The chances for Austin to get back on the field this week against Tampa Bay will likely hinge on his ability to return to practice Friday.

Elsewhere on the injury report, the Rams made some additions to the two they had listed Wednesday. Here's the full breakdown:

Did not practice: Austin (ankle), running back Daryl Richardson (thigh), offensive tackle Mike Person (illness), linebacker Will Witherspoon (illness)

Limited practice: Cornerback Janoris Jenkins (back)
