Stacy sits out Wednesday's practice
By Nick Wagoner
EARTH CITY, Mo. -- In what has become something of a weekly tradition, St. Louis Rams rookie running back Zac Stacy did not practice Wednesday as he continues to manage an ankle injury suffered late in the team's game against Seattle on Oct. 28.
On the official injury report, Stacy is listed as sitting out with a foot injury but Rams coach Jeff Fisher said he had hurt the ankle in the closing minutes of that game against the Seahawks. Stacy did not practice last Wednesday, either, before he was upgraded to full participation Thursday and back down to limited on Friday.
But Stacy started and clearly had no lingering issues against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday as he played through whatever ailed him and posted 127 yards and two touchdowns. It would surprise nobody if he follows a similar routine this week leading up to this week's game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Guard Harvey Dahl (knee), quarterback Brady Quinn (hip) and tight end Lance Kendricks (hand) joined Stacy in sitting out Wednesday's practice. Those were the only four players on the team's injury report.
Of note for Indianapolis, linebacker Robert Mathis (shoulder) and running back Trent Richardson (ankle) did not practice.
