The St. Louis Rams were without seven players in practice on Wednesday, including four who sat out with illnesses.
Running back Steven Jackson, defensive end Robert Quinn and cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Bradley Fletcher did not participate due to illness for the Rams, who apparently have some kind of bug going around their locker room. Jackson rarely participates on Wednesdays anyway, and will likely be back on the field with the rest of the sick players soon.
Cornerback Cortland Finnegan (thigh), linebacker James Laurinaitis (back) and center Scott Wells (knee) were also sidelined on Wednesday. Each of those three players was active in the Rams' Week 15 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, and none are expected to miss the team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
Missing from the injury report but out for the season is offensive lineman Harvey Dahl, who suffered a torn left biceps and has been placed on injured reserve.
