St. Louis Rams Injury News: Scott Wells 'Still A Little Bit Away'

Still no sign of Scott Wells in a St. Louis Rams uniform.

The St. Louis Rams may have been spanked by the Indianapolis Colts in Sunday's preseason game, but they did come away with one major win: no players were injured in the game. Compared with the news around the league over the weekend, that represents a big win in and of itself. Nevertheless, the team has a few players still dealing with injuries, including center Scott Wells.

Brandon Gibson missed the game with a hamstring issue. Bradley Fletcher missed it because of a rib injury. Darian Stewart was also among the soft tissue crew sitting this one out. All three players, said Jeff Fisher, are considered day-to-day and could be back for the next game.

As for Scott Wells, don't expect to see him in a Rams uniform anytime soon. Fisher described him as "still a little bit away." He did not have a timetable for Wells' return.

The Rams signed Wells to a four-year, $24 million deal this spring, bringing him in to anchor the center of their offensive line. Other than a few days at OTAs, Wells has yet to practice with the team. The Rams said in June that he was expected to be back in time for training camp. It smells like there's more going on here.

Robert Turner had a solid game on Sunday, and he certainly looks to be an upgrade over Jason Brown. Still, the Rams paid Wells well to get one of the league's best centers to shore up one of the worst offensive lines.
