Flipping through the Rams injury report

The St. Louis Rams came out of the Jacksonville game this week bruised and battered. For a time yesterday, the injury list looked a little too much like it has in recent seasons, with the few key players the Rams have sidelined. 

WR Donnie Avery would have been the most costly name on the list, but it sounds like his hip injury is not serious. He's officially being called day to day right now. Wait and see what his status is when they start practicing later this week. For now at least, it looks like the Rams will have Avery in uniform. 

CB Ron Bartell is dealing with a head injury and will have the battery of concussion tests this week. The cornerback will be extremely important this week against the Colts. After watching Bartell get burned a couple times last week, I wonder if he's still not dealing with some injury issues. 

What could be the most important injury news of all for this week's game is word that SS James Butler could be back in the lineup. Craig Dahl served admirably, but it was obvious last week how much the Rams missed Butler. They were gashed on the run and Jax receivers picked up too many YAC on short throws to the middle.
