Center Scott Wells completed another day of practice with the St. Louis Rams on Tuesday. This was only the second day that Wells has been able to practice since the start of training camp. He appears to be recovered from the knee scope he had in the spring, and he could even join the team on the field this week against the Dallas Cowboys.
"We're going to see how he responds off of today and tomorrow and then make a decision," Jeff Fisher said of Wells. "It's looking like he'll be able to play."
That is certainly good news for the Rams who signed Wells to free agent deal worth $24 million in the spring to bolster their offensive line and give quarterback Sam Bradford an experienced blocker capable of reading defenses and captaining the offensive line.
The question now is one of chemistry, with both Bradford and the other four linemen. Wells is a savvy vet, so adjustment to the game itself is not going to be a big deal. Linemen do need to form a mind meld with the line-mates, so that will be something to keep an eye on against the Cowboys this week.
In other injury news, the Rams limited Brandon Gibson a little on Tuesday after having him back in the mix on Monday. Fisher downplayed the significane of Gibson's injury.
"Yes, we just backed him down," Fisher said of Gibson. "He was fine; he just got a little sore. No issues there. He moved around pretty good today up until the 1-on-1 and we just backed him down."
