Injuries. For the most part, the St. Louis Rams have been pretty lucky when it comes to the medical tent at the team facility. A handful of players sat out from Tuesday's practice. The list was particularly heavy on receivers and defensive backs, with Trumaine Johnson joining the soft tissue surprises on the sideline. Let's take a quick look at the injury report as it stands.

Dararnio Alexander (hamstring), Bradley Fletcher (ribs), Brandon Gibson (hamstring), and Darian Stewart (hamstring) all sat out yesterday. Head coach Jeff Fisher said he expect the later three to return this week and be on the field for Saturday night's game against the Chiefs.

Johnson joined that group with an undisclosed injury, though reports from the sideline say that it did not appear to be serious. Fisher's staff has been incredibly cautious on the hamstrings and other so-called soft tissue injuries, giving his players a chance to get over them before the problem cascades into something more substantial.

As far as Danario Alexander goes, the clock is ticking. When he has been on the field, he looks spectacular, but not being able to practice is going to hold him back and keep him from reaching his potential. I feel like I should have that remark on boilerplate just to cut and paste.

Scott Wells and Trevor Laws are still out with no clear timetable on a return. We talked about the disconcerting situation with Wells on Monday.

Rodger Saffold was back to work on Tuesday, though he was gradually worked into the mix with the first team. He did play last week against the Colts, playing a strong game in pass protection.
