The Rams will have to do without quarterback Marc Bulger for at least two games and possibly the rest of the season according to team doctors. Bulger re-injured his throwing shoulder after a hit in the second quarter of Sunday’s 38-28 loss to the Cardinals. He stayed in the game until he sustained another vicious hit in the third quarter. Bulger also suffered a concussion. In October, Bulger had to miss two games and rested during a bye week after a similar shoulder injury.
Bulger has more swelling on the shoulder and the earliest he could return would be on December 11, when the Rams face the Vikings in Minnesota, though doctors say that’s wildly optimistic. He could very well be lost for the season.
In eight games this season, Bulger has completed 66.9 percent of his passes for 2,297 yards, 14 touchdowns and nine interceptions. His quarterback rating of 94.4 is the best in the NFC and fifth-best in the NFL.
