The St. Louis Rams will not have Danny Amendola on the field this week against the 49ers. Sam Bradford's favorite target is still dealing with a foot injury suffered in a loss to the Jets. He missed practice this week, and the news isn't a huge shocker despite the team putting off a decision until game day. The question is how will Amendola's absence impact the Rams against a tough 49ers defense?
Chris Givens has stepped up to help fill the void, and he had his biggest game of the season last week against the Cardinals. Bradford will him as well as contributions from players like Lance Kendricks and Austin Pettis to give the offense some variety. Of course, running the ball will be key, and Steven Jackson played a big role the last time these two teams met.
