The St. Louis Rams will be without their newly acquired center Scott Wells, possibly for the rest of the season. Head coach Jeff Fisher revealed that Wells suffered a fractured foot in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Detroit Lions. The Rams will put Wells on injured reserve, though he has a chance to return.

The new injured reserve rules allow teams to designate a player to return during the season. Wells' injury could make him a candidate for that exclusion, Fisher said. Wells could return in six weeks with the new injured reserve rule.

Prior to coming to the Rams, Wells had not missed a game in two seasons with the Packers. He missed a total of six games in the three seasons prior to that. The Rams signed him to a four-year, $24 million deal in the spring.

Robert Turner, who filled in for Wells through training camp, will replace him in the starting lineup. The silver lining here is that Turner has played well with the Rams.
