Bartell unlikely to play versus the Saints

Ron Bartell, the St. Louis Rams' top cornerback, is listed as doubtful this week.

Secondary challenges are primary concerns for the St. Louis Rams this week. Huh, huh, get it?

Starting CB Ron Bartell missed practice again today, as he has all week, with a shoulder stinger. More ominous than that is the report that Bartell still has no strength in his left arm and shoulder, limb strength being sort of a prerequisite for football players. Given that, it seems inevitable that the Rams will be without their to cornerback against a Saints offense that averages the third highest total of passing yards per game. 

And just how does this injury impact his game? Check out this stat from Pro Football Focus about Bartell's week 13 performance:

Injured Ron Bartell was responsible for half of all of the Rams' six missed tackles.

CB Justin King is also doubtful, having missed practice along with Bartell and Kenneth Darby
