Not a lot to report today (read: still no news on Steven Jackson), except for some injuries from the St. Lou Dispatch here. Dear God, the injuries...
Second-round draft pick Donnie Avery, the first wide receiver taken in the 2008 draft, did not participate in Tuesday afternoon's practice because of what Rams head coach Scott Linehan described as a small crack in the pelvic bone.
Avery suffered the injury Monday in practice, coming down on the hip after a catch. He was given a complete round of tests Monday, and the injury is not thought to be serious.
Team sources said he would miss anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, depending on how the injury responds to rest and treatment.
Not too bad, but I wish he could have gotten all of mini camp in him before getting to the preseason. Shame. Also this:
Starting right guard Mark Setterstrom was taken off the field as a precaution with numbness in his right foot and leg. So was linebacker Vince Hall, the rookie free agent from Virginia Tech. He had a hamstring injury that was not thought to be serious. Tight end Anthony Becht wasn't practicing because of a hamstring injury.
In Setterstrom's absence, rookie John Greco was working with the first unit at right guard. Richie Incognito was working at center instead of Brett Romberg. Rombert, the No. 1 center in camp, had a minor hand injury and could not snap the ball.
Outside of following "Romberg" with "Rombert", you have to wonder what's going on if your #1 center has a hand injury that prevents him from playing C. One word: ugh...
