The St. Louis Rams (2-13) appear ready to give QB Kellen Clemens his third consecutive NFL start on Sunday. The top two quarterbacks on the roster -- Sam Bradford and A.J. Feeley -- both missed practice again on Thursday and appear increasingly likely to miss their third straight game:

The Rams recently signed journeyman QB Kellen Clemens in order to have at least two healthy QBs on the roster, and in Clemens' first start -- a 13-20 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals -- he performed expertly, passing for 229 yards and 1 touchdown while completing nearly 70% of his passes.
In the following week, against the vaunted Pittsburgh Steelers defense, Clemens completed only 37.5% of his passes for 91 yards and a 49.1 QB Rating.
The Rams may also be without backup running back and kick returner Jerious Norwood. In his eight games in 2011, Norwood has averaged 25.3 yards per kick return.
