St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger has fractured the pinkie finger of his throwing hand and could be out for at least two weeks. Bulger, jammed the finger taking a snap during Monday’s practice and an X-ray revealed a small fracture.
On the injury head coach Steve Spagnuolo said, "It’s not displaced which is a good thing, so it’s the best of all worlds. You can’t cast it. You don’t do anything to it. They’ll just tape it and we’ll keep him immobilized with the finger for a couple of weeks, and we’ll see where we are after that, but he won’t do very much for two weeks, just to be on the safe side."
For the time being, that gives the job of number one quarterback to former Ravens’ starter Kyle Boller. I think this was a good pick up for the Rams. Now, we’ll see how he does. Boller says this is why he was brought in.
"It will be an opportunity for me to get out there with the ones. That’s what they brought me in here for, in case something like this happens. Hopefully we can go out there and not miss a beat. Go out there with the guys and execute."
The Rams host Atlanta this Friday at 7pm.
