Slumping Rams return to normal schedule

Publish date:

ST. LOUIS (AP) After giving players Thursday off all season, the skidding St. Louis Rams are returning to a conventional schedule with a day off on Tuesday.

Earlier in the season, coach Jeff Fisher cited a team study as a reason for giving players a day off later in the week. But the Rams (4-7) have lost four in a row after entering November with a winning record for the first time since 2006.

There's no listed quarterback availability this week, perhaps reflecting uncertainty whether Case Keenum can return from a concussion after missing Sunday's loss at Cincinnati. Nick Foles got the starting job back and threw three interceptions, one of them returned for a touchdown.

The Cardinals visit St. Louis on Sunday.
