“Case was limited today,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. “He’s doing well. He’s still in the protocol, so we couldn’t completely release him to full practice. But, he got under center. He split the reps with Nick (Foles) and he felt pretty good.”
The Rams starting quarterback, Keenum still hasn’t been cleared after suffering a concussion late in Sunday’s 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, but he’s getting closer.
St. Louis doesn’t practice on Thursday — the Rams are using Thursdays on their off days this season — so the team will know more on Friday. If he’s released then, he’ll be ready to start this Sunday’s road game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
“He’s still in the protocol,” Fisher said. “We’ll know better on Friday. Hopefully, he’ll be released and he’ll be able to play.”
Making his first start for the Rams, Keenum completed 12-of-26 passes for 136 yards with one touchdown and a QB rating of 75.2. He also fumbled three times, and the final one turned into a game-winning field goal as time expired for the Ravens.
Fisher made the switch at quarterback after nine games, benching Foles in favor of Keenum. The Rams acquired both quarterbacks this past offseason in trades with the Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans.
