Hill completed 8 of 13 passes for 81 yards with an interception in the season opener before injuring his thigh and getting replaced by Davis. Fisher said he decided to "go with experience" with Hill, a 10-year vet, and told the team at a meeting Wednesday morning, the report said.
Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson intercepted Davis and scored from 30 yards out, then corner Antonio Cromartie picked up Davis' fumble and returned it 14 yards for a touchdown.
Davis has accounted for 12 touchdowns and 12 turnovers this season. Shaun Hill will continue to be his backup.
Davis completed 17 of 30 passes for 216 yards and a score during the contest. He was constantly under pressure, tossing two interceptions, losing a fumble and getting sacked six times. Davis really melted down in the fourth quarter. He threw both picks while attempting to lead a comeback. The second pick was returned for a touchdown by Patrick Peterson.
Davis will take on the Broncos Week 11.
Davis couldn't get anything going through the air, with his only completed pass of more than 20 yards going to Kenny Britt on a 21-yard touchdown where the quarterback completed a short pass and watched Britt run into the end zone from more than 15 yards out.
Davis hasn't topped 160 passing yards in any of his last three games, yet the Rams have managed to go 2-1 during that stretch. He'll face another tough test in Week 10 when the Rams head to Arizona to face the division-leading Cardinals.
Granted, he hasn't had the most favorable matchups to work with the last few weeks. The decline actually began against the 49ers in Week 6, but then, they're the eighth-best team against the pass. The Seahawks, regardless of where they rank, are still the Seahawks, and the Chiefs, Davis' Week 8 opponent, are actually No. 1 against the pass.
But clearly, you're scraping the bottom of the barrel if you turn to Davis in Fantasy. He is, in fact, a backup quarterback for a team whose starter left something to be desired himself. And hey, he's facing the 49ers again in Week 9 -- this time on the road -- so we should have a pretty good idea how that'll go.
