The St. Louis Rams are as healthy as they've been all year, and here's proof: Danario Alexander is ready to play in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos! Okay, so that's not according to the NFL Injury Report so much as it is just Danario Alexander talking about himself. But it's an improvement! And it's more than the Broncos' Demaryius Thomas can say about himself.â†µ
In the real injury report, he's been kind of limited this week, for the second week in a row. I'd expect to see him, just because this is the second consecutive week he's been participating in practice, and it's clear at this point that he's not going to get any healthier. Tune in to next week's injury report to see the results of his start this Sunday.
The Broncos, meanwhile, will be without Demaryius Thomas, who was on crutches in practice this week after suffering an ankle injury last week. Thomas, the Broncos' first-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, had 22 receptions for 283 yards and two touchdowns in his nine games to date. His best game was his debut, against the Seattle Seahawks—on September 19 he caught eight passes for 97 yards and one of those touchdowns. Of late he'd also been serving as their kick returner.â†µ
