Gaines improved, Rams sticking with Wells in finale

ST. LOUIS (AP) It'll be later in the week before the St. Louis Rams learn whether rookie cornerback E.J. Gaines can recover from a concussion in time for the season finale.

Fisher also said Monday he's sticking with center Scott Wells, who botched two critical shotgun snaps in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Giants. Wells has worn a brace on his right elbow half the season.

Fisher said Gaines was improved, but the rookie will follow the concussion evaluation protocol.

Gaines had his helmet knocked off in a collision with teammate T.J. McDonald. Gaines had been diving to defend a pass as McDonald also converged on Odell Beckham Jr.

Fisher said the Rams (6-9) had no other serious injury concerns heading into this week's game at Seattle.
