Danario Alexander was among the Rams held out of Sunday's preseason opener against the Colts.

The St. Louis Rams only dressed eight wide receivers for Sunday's preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts, as neither Danario Alexander nor Brandon Gibson dressed for the 38-3 loss.

Alexander, who stands at 6'5", could be one of quarterback Sam Bradford's best targets this year -- assuming he makes the team and is healthy. Alexander has been bothered by a hamstring injury throughout training camp so far, making it difficult for the coaching staff to evaluate his skills.

Gibson, who has been playing with the first-team in practices in training camp, was held out of Sunday's contest because of leg soreness.

With Alexander and Gibson out, Rams receivers caught 23 passes for only 159 yards in Sunday's preseason opener.

Per the St. Louis Post Dispatch, the following Rams also missed Sunday's contest:

Center Scott Wells (knee), defensive tackle Trevor Laws (knee), safety Darian Stewart (hamstring), and cornerback Bradley Fletcher, who missed a couple of practices near the end of the week with what's believed to be leg soreness.
