Idle spectator Quick may get chance to boost Rams’ idling offense
The St. Louis Rams can't score and can't move the ball. Might it be time to dust off Brian Quick for Sunday's matchup against the unbeaten Arizona Cardinals?
“There’s a chance that he’ll be up this week,” coach Jeff Fisher told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch of Quick, who has been inactive for the first three games despite not appearing on the injury list.
Quick was showing signs of developing into a solid starter a year ago before suffering a shoulder injury in Week 7 that required season-ending surgery. He has maintained he is healthy and trying to be patient while making up for the time missed while rehabbing.
A second-round draft pick out of Appalachian State in 2012, Quick opened last season with seven receptions in each of the first two games and had 25 before he went down with the shoulder injury.
Given that the Rams are averaging an NFL-low 274.3 yards per game and face the league's Nos. 1-2 scoring teams in the next two weeks, Fisher may need to get him back in the lineup. “We’ll see how the week goes,” Fisher said Monday.
Jeff Fisher said there's a chance Brian Quick active this week: "We'll see how the week goes."
