That leaves the Rams very thin at tight end. Rookie Lance Kendricks was a scratch for the game, dealing with a foot injury. Billy Bajema and Stephen Spach as their only tight ends. The Rams trail by two points in the fourth quarter.
Also not returning to the game is starting left tackle Rodger Saffold. He has a head injury. Mark LeVoir replaced him at the left tackle spot. Jason Smith is still out with a concussion; Adam Goldberg is starting for him this week. With Jason Brown benched and Tony Wragge in at center, the Rams have three backups starting up front for them today.
