– It’s become commonplace this week to write about players returning to practice from injury almost as much as it has been to write about losing them in previous weeks. On Thursday, the Rams got another banged up player back in action, albeit unexpectedly.
– One day after the return of WR Donnie Avery, Mike Sims-Walker got back to work in nearly an unlimited capacity. He did some individual work on Wednesday night but he was back to business and in full team drills on Thursday.
– Initially thought to be out this week, Sims-Walker has gotten progressively better and now looks like he’ll play on Saturday night.
– Avery made it through a second consecutive day of work with no issues and he too looks poised to play on Saturday night.
– All things considered, it makes sense for the wideouts to get back on the field as soon as possible. There is a lot of competition at that position and missing time certainly isn’t a good way to land a spot on the depth chart.
– LG Jacob Bell was held out of practice again Thursday because of his knee injury. But the team is hopeful he’ll be able to go against the Titans.
– RB Steven Jackson got back to work on a limited basis Thursday and he is almost certain to play.
– On that topic, coach Steve Spagnuolo said that he’d like to play his starters for most, if not all, of the first half against Tennessee.
– The game will be televised locally on KTVI-FOX 2 here in St. Louis with a 7 p.m. kickoff at the Edward Jones Dome.
