– The Rams had a light, fun workout Wednesday morning with the focus on improving some areas they believed needed fixing followed by some “competitive” drills intended to loosen things up and let the team have fun.
– On the injury front, the lengthy list from Monday remained the same as coach Steve Spagnuolo and Co. decided to hold out all of the injured players to, at most, a limited capacity.
– A few quick updates on the injury front…
– T Jason Smith passed the “exertion” test on Tuesday and is a step closer to returning from his concussion. He will be evaluated again on Monday but signs are pointing to him being able to make a return in time to play against San Francisco.
– TEs Michael Hoomanawanui and Daniel Fells had CT scans on their backs that revealed no major damage. Both players are expected to be OK coming out of the bye and ready for next week.
– S James Butler had an MRI on his ankle and it showed that while Butler does have a sprain it is not a high ankle sprain so his return should come sooner than later. It remains to be seen how soon, though.
– RB Steven Jackson says he will have to keep the pins in his broken finger for the next few weeks but hopes to have them taken out after the Nov. 21 game against Atlanta.
– After practice, the Rams scattered to get out of town. QB Sam Bradford is headed home to Oklahoma City for the weekend but will be watching film from home on his newly loaded laptop.
– Jackson is headed back to Las Vegas to be with his family.
– One player who says he is sticking around is MLB James Laurinaitis. Laurinaitis has a pair of dogs at home and says it’s hard to make travel arrangements with them in tow. So, Laurinaitis has a big weekend planned of watching football and, of course, watching game tape of San Francisco as well as the rest of the divisional opponents.
– The coaches will be in tomorrow and then also get the rest of the weekend off.
