Case Keenum (concussion) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Keenum's ability to take part in some individual drills indicates that he's progressing through the concussion protocol. An independent neurologist will ultimately be called upon to clear the quarterback for a return to the field, but the uncertain nature of concussions clouds whether he'll be able to do so this Sunday at Cincinnati. If he's deemed unready to suit up, Nick Foles will serve as the St. Louis Rams ' starting quarterback.
Case Keenum (concussion) didn't take part in the St. Louis Rams ' light practice session Tuesday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
This comes as no surprise, as Keenum is in the early stages of his recovery from a concussion sustained during Sunday's loss at Baltimore. While head coach Jeff Fisher relayed that Keenum is "doing better" and is hopeful that he'll return to the practice field Wednesday, the quarterback's progress through the protocol for head injuries will ultimately determine when/if that comes to pass this week. Fisher has already said that Keenum will start once he's healthy enough to play, but Nick Foles will get the nod if Keenum is unable to suit up Sunday in Cincinnati.
Keenum's head was slammed to the turf on a late takedown Sunday at Baltimore, but no evaluation was undertaken, and his fumble two plays later led to the Ravens' game-winning field goal. In the aftermath of the game, he was examined for a head injury, which was confirmed as a concussion Monday. If he emerges from the protocol unscathed, head coach Jeff Fisher said that Keenum will be under center this Sunday at Cincinnati. However, the murky nature of such ailments could thrust Nick Foles into a starting role.
Not a good day for Zuerlein, who was coming off a solid last two weeks of contests. He's having a tough year overall, as he is only 15 of 23 on field goals and has now missed an extra point as well.
Johnson is putting together a fairly solid year, with four picks and 11 pass deflections to go with 43 tackles. He doesn't do enough to merit much IDP attention but has been an asset for the
