Rams training camp: Rams get good news on Bartell

The St. Louis Rams got a scare at last night's practice when their top cornerback, Ron Bartell, was taken off the field with a leg injury. Fortunately for the Rams, an examination today revealed that Bartell suffered a low ankle sprain, which might keep him out for only a week or two. 

Here's more information on the low ankle sprain than you'll ever need. 

If this news holds, Bartell will likely miss the Rams preseason opener on Aug. 14. Bartell played with a hip injury for most of last season, compromising his effectiveness. Though it stinks that he'll miss important practice time, he shouldn't be too far behind if he only misses a couple weeks. 

The silver lining here is that it should give even more snaps for youngsters like Bradley Fletcher, Jerome Murphy, etc.

UPDATE: Bartell might only miss a "couple days" according to GM Billy Devaney who just relayed that info to Bernie Miklasz on the radio. Here's Bernie's tweet:

Rams GM Billy Devaney just told me that CB Ron Bartell is fine. Just a mild ankle sprain. Will miss a couple of days; that's all.
