Jacob Bell, Michael Hoomanawanui Miss Practice Today

Michael Hoomanawanui of the St. Louis Rams missed practice today.

The St. Louis Rams bye week ranked among the most costly weeks of the season. Bradley Fletcher suffered a season-ending ACL tear, and the team learned that Danny Amendola needs surgery to repair a torn triceps. On top of that, there are a few minor injury situations worth monitoring. 

Left guard Jacob Bell left early in the Rams week 4 loss to Washington with a hamstring injury. He sat out practice today. Last week, it was reported that Bell could miss "several weeks," but subsequent reports seemed to confirm that the injury was not as serious as first thought. Spagnuolo expressed confidence that Bell would play this week against Green Bay, but it's a situation to keep your eye on ahead of that game. If he can't go, Tony Wragge would replace him. 

Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui, supposed to be a key part of the two-tight end system under Josh McDaniels, suffered a concussion last week after dropping a pass. He did not practice today either. As with Bell, Spagnuolo felt like the second-year tight end would play this week. Remember, the Rams offense was supposedly predicated on the two tight ends and Steven Jackson, a trio that hasn't seen much time together this season because of injuries. 

Defensive tackle Darell Scott might miss more time after undergoing surgery on his wrist.
