The St. Louis Rams limp into the bye week. Unfortunately, most of the news is injury related. Players are done practicing until next week, but the coaches are busy scouring tape, diagnosing problems and examining players...self-scouting. Let's hope it pays off. 

The links...

Rams will add two players to the 53-man roster - Bradley Fletcher and Danny Amendola will be added to the injured reserve list. The Rams will add two players to replace them. One will most certainly be a cornerback, but the other might not be a wide receiver. Remember, there just isn't much out there this time of year, and with Marquis Johnson and Mark Clayton coming off the PUP list in the near future, the Rams will have to remove two players from the 53-man roster to up two spots for those guys.

St. Louis Rams COO Kevin Demoff Takes TST's Questions - St. Louis Rams COO Kevin Demoff is taking questions directly from Rams fans. Last call for questions for Demoff.

On Danny Amendola missing the season - Sando recounts Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels talking about Amendola as the center of the passing game, noting his toughness. There's a catch-22 with players like that: they put themselves at more risk for injury. Austin Pettis will be the Rams main slot guy now.

Jerel Worthy rising up Mel Kiper's 2012 NFL Draft big board - After finally looking impressive against Ohio State last week, Michigan State defensive tackle Jerel Worthy has been getting praise from NFL Draft analysts. The Rams could certainly use some help at DT next year.

2012 NFL Draft cornerback rankings - Mocking The Draft - This list might come in handy given the Rams' needs at the cornerback position. Right now, Alabama's Dre Kirkpatrick leads the cornerback class.
