Coming off the first tie in the NFL since the 2008 season, the St. Louis Rams will head to the Big Apple to face the struggling New York Jets this Sunday, and they'll do it relatively healthy. No starters were listed on the teams injury report but a couple of backups are still out of practice or limited in their participation.
Wide receiver Austin Pettis didn't practice Thursday after being limited in practice on Wednesday. He's dealing with a toe injury. Linebacker Mario Haggan was back at Thursday's practice, albeit in a limited fashion, as he deals with a thigh injury. Defensive end Eugene Sims and safety Darian Stewart were both limited in practice for the second straight day with knee injuries.
A win for the Rams over the struggling 3-6 Jets would go a long way to helping their playoff chances. The tie with the San Francisco 49ers complicates standings for playoffs, as St. Louis is sitting two and half games behind the Seattle Seahawks for the final NFC playoff spot.
