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.
