Some more good news for the St. Louis Rams on the injury front. Wide receiver Mark Clayton is feeling better this week, after injuring his Achilles tendon last week. That injury kept the Rams from activating him from the PUP list ahead of last week's game. Despite him feeling better, the Rams will not be activating Clayton for this week's game either, according to Jim Thomas.
It's getting down to the wire for the Rams to make a decision on Clayton. They have until Wednesday, November 9, to add him to the active roster. According to PUP list rules, players are eligible to resume practice with the team after week 6. The team then has a three-week window to add them to the active roster or stick them back on the PUP list for the rest of the season.
Clayton did not pass muster medically with the Rams when the lockout ended in late July. His knee injury, a torn patellar tendon, had not quite fully healed. They did eventually re-sign him and put him on the PUP list.
