St. Louis Rams host SS Michael Lewis and 3 others

With injuries nagging almost all of their top defensive backs, the St. Louis Rams hosted four free agents today at Rams Park. The name that will stand out the most is former 49ers S Michael Lewis. Also visiting today were S Gerald Alexander, CBs Ralph Brown and Geoffry Pope. 

Backup SS James Butler looks likely to miss the Rams week 8 game against the Carolina Panthers. Lewis is a good run stopper, in-the-box safety that could backup Craig Dahl. Lewis struggles in coverage, but when you're looking at guys off the street in week 8 it's impossible to get the total package. 

The Rams current fourth safety, Darian Stewart was inactive against Tampa Bay nursing a hamstring injury. 

Starting corners Ron Bartell and Bradley Fletcher both suffered injuries this week. Bartell has a sore shoulder and Fletcher is dealing with a hamstring. Fletcher is believed to be fine for this week, and the Rams are keeping an eye on Bartell. The good news to come from the PD article is that James Butler looks like the only Rams DB likely to miss this week. 

Yesterday, the Rams signed CB Quincy Butler. 

Walking wounded will have a chance to heal with a bye week following this week's game against Carolina.
