Head coach Dan Quinn said after Sunday's loss to the Vikings that Freeman (concussion) should return to all drills this week, barring a setback, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Quinn's comments may imply that Freeman has emerged from the concussion protocol, but that development hasn't been confirmed. In any case, a full return to practice Wednesday would pave the way for active status next Sunday at Tampa Bay.
Bailey has been suspended four games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
With Bailey -- who has recorded 12 catches for 182 yards and a touchdown in eight game to date -- set to miss time, it's now understandable that the Rams are expected to work out wideouts Hakeem Nicks, Wes Welker and Vincent Brown, per ESPN's Adam Caplan.
Keenum (concussion) is inactive Sunday against the Bengals, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.
Keenum was limited in practice all week while going through concussion protocol, and all indications leading up to the Sunday matchup had suggested Nick Foles would re-take the reins at quarterback. Keenum didn't necessarily "wow" anyone last week after completing 46 percent of his passes for 136 yards and a score, but had been expected to be the starting quarterback if healthy. Foles will now get another chance after nine underwhelming performances, but whoever claims the full-time job moving forward will likely be limited by the St. Louis run-first offense.
Quinn (hip) in inactive Sunday against the Bengals, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.
Quinn has sat out two of the past three games, and was on the field for just 14 snaps Week 10 against the Bears. After missing practice all week, it's not overly surprising to see him sit, as the Rams may want to save him to help compete for a Wild Card spot during the season's final stretch. His absence is certain to adversely affect the St. Louis pass rush.
Zuerlein (groin) is inactive Sunday against the Bengals, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.
Zuerlein was a late addition to the injury report after suffering a groin injury during Friday's practice, and that ailment turned out to be enough to hold him out of action. According to the Rams' official site, the recently-signed Zach Hocker will get the starting nod at kicker Sunday afternoon.
