Rams Have A Roster Move Or Two To Make After OL Injuries

The St. Louis Rams will have to make a roster move or two to address injuries to the offensive line.

Injuries forced the St. Louis Rams to shuffle the offensive line in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Detroit Lions. Scott Wells and Rodger Saffold both left the game, and both players will be on the shelf for a period the next few weeks. It begs the question of whether or not the Rams be making any moves to bolster the unit's depth?

"I won't go into details to what direction we're going to move as far as the roster's concerned," Fisher said at his Monday afternoon press conference.

The Rams have one open roster spot after putting Wells on the "designated for return" injured reserve list. That means he could be back in six weeks, roughly the same time estimated for his recovery. The Rams have another center on the practice squad, Tim Barnes, who becomes the backup to Robert Turner. Brandon Washington, a guard, is also on the practice squad.

Tackle is the biggest area of concern, thanks to the inspired preseason showing at center from Turner. Ty Nsekhe, an undrafted rookie, is the only other healthy tackle on the roster and now the primary backup to Wayne Hunter and Barry Richardson.

It stands to reason that the Rams would have to make a roster move to get some help at the position while Saffold recovers.
