Cornerback Ronald Bartell of the St. Louis Rams is day to day with a shoulder injury.

St. Louis Rams LB Na'il Diggs tore his pectoral muscle in the Rams' 19-6 win over Arizona yesterday, and will miss the rest of the season as he goes through a 5 month long recovery process. 

David Vobora, the incumbent SLB from last season, or Larry Grant will replace Diggs in the lineup. 

Ron Bartell is day to day, which is good news. Hopefully, he'll recover in time to play against New Orleans. Jerome Murphy, Craig Dahl, Kenneth Darby and Jason Smith are also day to day. Smith has a sprained ankle, but is expected to practice this week. LB Chris Chamberlain has an injured, not broken, wrist forcing him to wear a cast, but he's expected to play. 

Losing Diggs makes the Rams a little weaker at OLB, already a tender underbelly of their defense. Hopefully, Vobora regains the level of play he showed last year replacing Diggs in the starting lineup.
