St. Louis Rams Rookie Austin Pettis Could Be Activated Vs. Ravens

After an ugly performance from Greg Salas as the return-man and slot receiver over the first two weeks of the season the St. Louis Rams could be ready to see what their third-rounder from the 2011 NFL Draft can do—the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Austin Pettis has seen "extensive time" with the offense over this week's practices, and could play whether Salas is ready or not.

Pettis, who played college ball at Boise State, has been inactive for the first two weeks of the season, but with Danny Amendola out of the picture for another week or two following his horrific elbow injury and preceding his bid for a Wolverine-style recovery and Greg Salas, their fourth-rounder, literally fumbling his shot at the starting slot receiver position, Pettis has his best chance of the season to get established in the Rams' offense here in Week 3. The youngsters were promising enough to beat out Donnie Avery, but at this point in the season one of them will need to act like it.

Danario Alexander has proven that the Rams seem willing to accept any and all help at the position, after all.
