Well, we spoke too soon about the St. Louis Rams' lack of injuries this season.
Rookie CB Jerome Murphy "tweaked" his hamstring at practice today. His status is up in the air for this week's game, but, according to the PD, he'll be replaced by Quincy Butler or Kevin Dockery if he can't play at Arizona. It's probably about a push. CB Justin King was limited, but sounds like he'll be a go this week.
FB Mike Karney did not practice today because of a groin injury. He was on the inactive list last week, and the Rams didn't run many (any?) two-back sets. The Rams haven't been using the lead blocker much lately...and they're not running the ball as well as they have in the recent past.
Some interesting tidbits from Pro Football Focus' re-refocused column about the Rams week 12 win over the Broncos.
- Bradford threw two of his touchdown passes against the blitz.
- They noted that most secondaries this season have struggled against Denver. Bradley Fletcher & Oshiomogho Atogwe had a solid day, but Ron Bartell struggled against Brandon Lloyd, as have most corners assigned to cover him this year.
- Rodger Saffold had a perfect game in pass protection. Be sure to give the whole article a read.
