– The Rams just completed their second full day of preparations for this weekend’s game against Kansas City and are a step closer to this weekend’s big Show Me State showdown at the Edward Jones Dome.
– For those that won’t be in attendance on Sunday, no worries. The Rams and Chiefs will be televised locally after the game met the league’s sellout standards, the team announced Thursday. The game will be broadcast live at noon on KMOV-Channel 4 in the St. Louis area from the Edward Jones Dome.
– A very limited number of tickets remain available by calling 314-RAMS-TIX or purchasing right here at stlouisrams.com.
– Joining perpetual captains Oshiomogho Atogwe and Steven Jackson this week are FB Brit Miller and S James Butler.
– On the injury front, there were a handful of changes to Thursday’s report.
– Only TE Michael Hoomanawanui remains as a non-participant in practice as he continues to recover from a high ankle sprain.
– Listed as limited participants were CB Ron Bartell (shoulder) and RB Kenneth Darby (ribs). Both were status quo from Wednesday but they were joined in that designation by LB David Nixon. He has a broken hand but was able to get back into it Thursday and is expected to be available Sunday. Of that trio, Darby appears to be the least likely to be ready to go against the Chiefs.
– P Donnie Jones returned to practice from his illness and was listed as full participation.
– Joining Jones at that status is G Jacob Bell, who had been battling a bruised knee. He is expected to be ready to go against the Chiefs.
– No further updates on Kansas City QB Matt Cassel. His status is still day to day and he was again limited in practice Thursday. It’s a strange situation in that depending on who you ask, you get a different answer on whether he’ll play or not.
– The Rams will hit red zone work on Friday and a walk through on Saturday leading into Sunday’s game.
