The St. Louis Rams are planning to activate center Scott Wells from injured reserve this week.

Wells suffered a fractured left foot in the Rams season opener against the Detroit Lions. He was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return making him ineligible for the next eight weeks of the season.

According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, head coach Jeff Fisher wouldn’t commit to Wells playing this week against the Arizona Cardinals.

“We’ll see how the week goes and hope to get him back in the lineup,” Fisher said.

Wells returned to practice for the first time on Nov. 8 and, according to Thomas, received a large workload with the scout team in practice last week. The Rams will need to release someone to make room for Wells on the 53-man roster.

Wells made the Pro Bowl as a member of the Green Bay Packers in 2011. Wells spent the first eight years of his career with the Packers before signing with the Rams this off-season.
