St. Louis Rams QB Case Keenum still hasn't passed concussion protocol

St. Louis Rams quarterback Case Keenum still hasn't passed the concussion protocol, meaning former starter Nick Foles took most of the reps at Wednesday's practice.

ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Rams returned to the practice field on Wednesday but would-be starting quarterback Case Keenum still hasn’t been cleared from the concussion he suffered a week and a half ago. 

With Keenum limited, Nick Foles once again got most of the work.

“Well, just to address the quarterback situation here, Case is still in the protocol,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. “He had good work Monday, yesterday. He was limited today. He feels good, but he’s still yet to be cleared. As you observed, Nick got most of the reps today and we’ll just kind of see how things go tomorrow.”

The Rams (4-7) host the Arizona Cardinals (9-2) this Sunday and Fisher has said that Keenum will regain the starting spot whenever he clears the protocol. 

Keenum could make his second start for the Rams against a Cardinals team that Foles led them to a 24-22 win against in Arizona back in Week 4. He tossed three touchdown passes in that game and rookie running back Todd Gurley rushed for 146 yards.

“It’s later in the year,” Foles said of the upcoming rematch. “We’ve got to just keep going. We’re confident. We believe in ourselves. We just have to keep working. Arizona has played really well this year. They’re a talented team, so they’re going to be ready to go. They’re going to look at that film and try to do things better. It’s going to be a hard-fought game.”
