Rams Monday Madness

Rams team news and notes.

--Rookie RB Arlen Harris was replaced as the punt returner by DeJuan Groce after muffing a punt for the second time in two weeks. This one was recovered in the end zone for a Seattle touchdown. The previous week, the 49ers recovered at the Rams' 11-yard line and subsequently scored a touchdown.
   --FB Dan Curley injured a calf muscle in pregame warmups and did not play. Curley first suffered the calf injury before training camp, then injured it again in pregame warmups before the Aug. 8 preseason game against Oakland. Curley had an MRI Monday to assess the severity of the injury.
   --CB Travis Fisher missed some key time in the fourth quarter because of a shoulder injury that was diagnosed as a bruised AC joint. He is expected to play Sunday against Arizona.
   --LB Courtland Bullard suffered a significant tear to his hamstring and will be out for a while, according to coach Mike Martz.
   --LB Jamie Duncan, the club's special teams captain, suffered a mild high ankle sprain, but is expected to play this week.
   --With LB Scott Shanle out of the game with a hamstring injury, the Rams were down to four healthy linebackers.
   --LS Chris Massey will likely play fullback this week after filling in there against Seattle. The Rams are reluctant to use Massey at fullback because is such a consistent long snapper.
