St. Louis Rams TE Michael Hoomanawanui likely out this week

Jawhol! Goose-stepping TD celebrations now linked to calf injuries.

The St. Louis Rams will be without one player this week against the Philadelphia Eagles. Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui missed a short morning practice today, still dealing with a calf injury. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo even summoned a new double secret injury classification to describe Hoomanawanui's status. 

"Very questionable"

Not quite doubtful, but oh so much more than just plain questionable, the elusive very questionable status designation virtually guarantees that the second-year tight end will not be available against the Eagles this week. And that's really too bad. 

Besides giving the Rams an extra cache of vowels, the University of Illinois tight end provides just the kind of matchups that would greatly benefit the Rams against an Eagles defense that is inexperienced at linebacker. Illinois Mike is deceptively fast and one burly dude at 6'4" 263 lbs. Fortunately, the Rams still have rookie TE Lance Kendricks, but the pairing of the two would be a potent matchup nightmare against the Eagles.
