Danario Alexander Status: Rams WR Returns This Week

Danario Alexander return to action this week for the St. Louis Rams.

Wide receiver Danario Alexander will return to action for the St. Louis Rams this week. Alexander has not played since week 7, when he caught two passes for nine yards in a loss to the Cowboys. A hamstring injury has kept him out of action since then. He returned to practice today as a full participant.

Bradford told the press at Rams Park today that he looked forward to getting DX back on the field with him, according to Ron Clements. "He's another weapon, another speedster who can help stretch the field," the Rams quarterback said.

Without a doubt the Rams could use Alexander in their vertical passing game. Alexander was starting ahead of Brandon Gibson before his injury, and has not played at all since the Rams acquired Brandon Lloyd. Hopefully with DX in the mix, Lloyd can work some of the intermediate routes. Maybe the Rams will even start throwing to the middle of the field again.

Other injuries of note included defensive tackle Justin Bannan, linebacker Josh Hull and safety Darian Stewart. None of those players practiced, and their status for week 13 is unclear. Stewart has not yet been cleared to resume contact after suffering a concussion last week. If Bannan is out, it could be another brutal day for the run defense.
