Most 'injured' Rams return to practice
By Nick Wagoner
EARTH CITY, Mo. -- On Monday's injury report, the St. Louis Rams listed nine players, but most weren't necessarily dealing with injuries so much as soreness from playing a game a little more than 24 hours earlier.
Tuesday's injury report brought some reality back to the list, as the bulk of the players on it were upgraded in some form.
In fact, the Rams had just two players who did not practice or were limited in some capacity Tuesday afternoon. Tackle Rodger Saffold and defensive end William Hayes, both of whom are dealing with knee ailments, did not practice. Offensive tackle Joe Barksdale also did not practice as he tended to a personal matter.
The other seven players who were listed Monday were full participants in Tuesday's workout. Receiver Chris Givens, who did not participate Monday because of knee soreness, moved up to full participation.
Here's the full breakdown of Tuesday's injury report:
Did not participate: Barksdale, Hayes, Saffold.
Full participation: Givens, linebacker James Laurinaitis (foot), tight end Mike McNeill (chest), left guard Chris Williams (foot), safety T.J. McDonald (knee), running back Daryl Richardson (foot), left tackle Jake Long (foot).
