Scott Wells Injury: Rams Center Placed On Injured Reserve

The Saint Louis Rams are placing starting center Scott Wells in the injured reserve with a broken foot, according to the Rams Radio Network. It is suspected that Wells will be placed on the injured reserve in hopes he can return, something made possible by a new temporary injured reserve rule.

Previously, a player placed on the injured reserve was simply done for the season. Under the new rule, the Rams would be able to reactivate one player from the IR later in the season, which means Wells can still play if he becomes healthy.

Wells was considered the Rams' big offseason acquisition, as he signed a four-year, $24 million deal. He was injured throughout the Rams' offseason program and training camp, despite being expected to anchor the center of the offensive line.

In Sunday's loss to the Lions, guard Robert Turner moved over to center to play for Wells, and rookie Rokevious Watkins replaced Turner at guard. Time will tell if this is the plan the Rams will use going forward.
