Null could fill void for Rams Sunday

The uncertain status of Kyle Boller isn’t keeping many Rams fans or fantasy owners awake at night. 

Heck, the loyal Rams fans still left might be rooting against their team for the rest of the season so the Rams can take Ndamukong Suh first overall in April.

But Boller is still a starting quarterback in the NFL, and it’s our duty to report when he’s uncertain to play.   After going through a full practice Wednesday, Boller was limited the last two days with a leg injury.

“We’ve got 48 hours, so we’ll see,” Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said. “I don’t want to look in a crystal
ball. You’ve got to play with two legs, can’t play with one.”

Boller is listed as probable, but rookie backup Keith Null has received increased work with the first team so he can be ready to play if called upon.  Null is closer to playing as a rookie than he probably imagined he could be when drafted in the sixth round out of West Texas A&M.

Steven Jackson (back) is listed as questionable after not practicing all week, but is expected to start at running back.

    Heh, I see what you did there. Your too clever, Mr. Florio.

    Null went to West Texas A&M.

    I had a logic professor named Null. I just always figured he was in the witness protection program or something, and they let him pick his own name.

    Gregg, isn’t it nice when these fun headline opportunities present themselves? Almost makes you glad Boller injured his leg :-)

    Noone has yet made a joke about Ryan Leaf being his QB coach while at WTA&M, come on guys. Highly disappointed. I have a friend who is a Rams fan, and he has been hoping for Null for a while now. Bulger and Boller, it is known what they can be. Null has good size, and a good arm. Interesting to see how he does.

    Gregg,
    That was so Florio-like, I had to read the byline.
    Well played.

    I have a hypothesis about Null. But I’d rather not state it, lest you think it insignificant.

    can’t wait til the draft so the rams can continue to pass on drafting a QB. Suh is a great player and most likely would be a great draft pick, but how many years have they skipped out on picking a franchise QB now?
