St. Louis Rams Expected To Start Brandon Lloyd This Week

Clearly, Brandon Lloyd's familiarity with Josh McDaniels' offensive system was a major motivating factor in the decision to swing a trade for him. The St. Louis Rams expect Lloyd to play this weekend when the Rams travel to Dallas for a game against the Cowboys. Whether or not Lloyd will have success for the second time playing for McDaniels remains to be seen. 

This week's practice reports will be hotly anticipated to see how well Lloyd does. He was on pace for another 1,000-yard season before the wheels came off in Denver. If he can catch on quickly, the Rams offense might be able to muster something better than their current average of less than ten points per game. 

It's also worth remembering that Mark Clayton is eligible to come off the PUP list this week, Wednesday when the Rams resume practice. He could be activated for the Rams game against Dallas, but that might depend on how well he does in practice this week. 

Nothing official has been announced as far as a corresponding roster move. It certainly sounds like Mike Sims-Walker is done in St. Louis, and activating Clayton will require another roster move. In all likelihood, the recently added Nick Miller will be dropped. Mostly a return man, Miller was inactive against Green Bay this week. Austin Pettis and Quinn Porter handled return duties.
