This Sunday's game between the St. Louis Rams and Minnesota Vikings is critical for both teams, with each desperately needing a victory to stay in the hunt for a Wild Card playoff spot in the NFC. The Rams would love to have their best wide receiver back for the most critical game of the season, and Danny Amendola could be on the field Sunday. He was limited in practice for the second straight day as he deals with a foot issue that has kept him on the sidelines for the last two weeks.
Running back Steven Jackson was limited in practice after sitting out Wednesday with a foot injury, and tight end Mike McNeill was in the same practice situation while dealing with a thigh injury. Center Scott Wells was able to fully participate after sitting out Wednesday with a knee injury.
The news isn't as good on the defensive side of the ball, where linebacker James Laurinaitis (back) and cornerback Cortland Finnegan (ankle) both missed practice for the second day in a row. Safety Craig Dahl was at full speed after missing Wednesday's practice with a head injury.
