Keenum yet to be cleared; Foles gets first-team reps for Rams

BY foxsports • December 2, 2015

St. Louis Rams quarterback Case Keenum has yet to pass the NFL's concussion protocol, putting his status in question for Sunday's matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.

With Keenum reduced to a limited participant, Rams coach Jeff Fisher told reporters that quarterback Nick Foles received the first-team repetitions at Wednesday's practice.

Earlier in the week, Fisher said Keenum would be back under center as soon as he received medical clearance. Keenum suffered the concussion late in the fourth quarter of a 16-13 loss at Baltimore on Nov. 22.

Keenum, who was making his first start since December 2014, remained in the game after slamming his helmet on the turf and was visibly dazed. That prompted the league to review the protocol procedures and forced Keenum to sit out this past weekend's game at Cincinnati.

Foles, who started the first nine games, returned to the lineup and was intercepted three times by the Bengals in the 31-7 setback. St. Louis has the league's worst passing attack with an average of 180.9 yards per game.
