– The Rams just wrapped up Friday’s practice and now will have a few hours of downtime before heading to Arizona this evening. As with all West Coast trips this year, the Rams will leave a day early to acclimate and get a long flight out of the way.
– On Friday, Rams coach Jeff Fisher tweaked things a bit, opting to take his team inside for practice and the reason had nothing to do with the chilly temperatures that would make his shorts wearing until Dec. 1 promise more difficult.
“Friday is a precision day,” Fisher said. “It’s plus-territory, it’s money zone, red zone and they were forecasting some gusts up to 20-30 miles an hour so we just wanted to make sure that we were sharp with the passing (game).”
– The forecast for Sunday in Arizona is sunny and about 80 degrees. The Rams won’t be informed until 90 minutes before the game as to whether the University of Phoenix Stadium’s roof will be open for the game.
– As for which players will be available on Sunday, C Scott Wells seems to be on a positive trajectory toward making his second start of the season against the Cardinals as he attempts to return from a foot injury.
“He got through pretty well,” Fisher said. “He alternated a little bit with Rob but for the most part, he took most of the reps. It looks like he’s got a chance to play a little bit.”
– On the other hand, WR Danny Amendola (foot) and LB Mario Haggan (elbow) again did not participate.
– Here’s the official injury report for Sunday:
Out: Haggan (elbow)
Doubtful: Amendola (foot)
Questionable: S Rodney McLeod (calf), TE Lance Kendricks (knee)
Probable: RB Steven Jackson (foot)
– That’ll do it for today. Talk to you all in Phoenix. Thanks for reading.
