Defensive tackles are going to be in short supply for the St. Louis Rams this week. Three of the team's interior defensive linemen all sat out practice for the second day in a row on Thursday. At least two of those players, Michael Brockers and Darell Scott, will definitely miss the team's Week 1 game against the Detroit Lions.

Brockers is still dealing with a knee injury suffered in the team's final preseason game against the Ravens. Scott is also dealing with a knee injury. Matt Conrath's status is less clear for this week. He has a bum knee from the Ravens game as well.

Conrath, an undrafted rookie free agent, was seeing time with the starters during the preseason, working third downs and obvious passing situations where they could use his 6-foot-7 frame and reach to bat down passes and throw up another hurdle for quarterbacks.

There was some good news on Brockers. Jeff Fisher told Jim Thomas of the Post-Dispatch that Brockers was doing better following the injury, but was was still wearing a walking boot. He is expected to be out 2-4 weeks.

Detroit's secondary was without a pair of starters again on Thursday. Safety Louis Delmas and cornerback Chris Houston missed practice.
