Now into the second half of the preseason, the St. Louis Rams will take on the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night. Both teams are looking to shore things up to open the regular season in September, though the aims are widely different.
The Colts have made progress every year with QB Andrew Luck, from losing in the Wild Card Round to losing in the Divisional Round to making the AFC Championship last year. Obviously, they'd like that trend to continue and send Luck and Co. to the Super Bowl.
The Rams, on the other hand, are trying to put things in order the right way for the first time in a long, long time. Signs that it's coming together haven't been evident. For a young team, those signs couldn't come sooner.

We're still in the hazy cloud of preseason injury reports, but it will likely include OL Steven Baker, LB Daren Bates, DT Michael Brockers, RB Todd Gurley (knee), CB Brandon McGee (foot), G Rodger Saffold (shoulder), TE Brad Smelley (hand), LB Korey Toomer (ankle) and DT Doug Worthington. A couple of those guys could see action, though I don't know that you'd want to press season-ready vets like Brockers or Saffold. G Cody Wichmann sounds like a go having come off of a calf injury suffered early in camp.
