The Rams put cornerback Cortland Finnegan on injured reserve Saturday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Finnegan sat out practice this week with an eye injury. According to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com, the nature of Finnegan’s injury is unclear.

The 4-6 Rams host Chicago on Sunday.

Finnegan, 29, played seven games for St. Louis in 2013, intercepting one pass and making 27 tackles. He signed with the Rams as a free agent in March 2012.

To fill Finnegan’s roster spot, the Rams promoted safety T.J. McDonald from the injured reserve/designated for return list, Thomas said.

McDonald started the first four games of 2013 for St. Louis, recording 18 tackles. He suffered a broken leg in the Rams’ Week Four loss to San Francisco.

  1. How many NFL players get contracts doubling or tripling their salary making them wealthier than they ever dreamed guaranteed and they become less motivated as in their minds they gave reached their full potential …setting them up for life $$$$, not helping their team win a championship which the GM and coach who signed them thought they would…at least help towards that goal…see this time and time again examples: Albert Haynesworth and Aaron Curry…now maybe Finnegan…

  2. Finnegan had a damn fine season last year with the Rams. I believe he was never charged with giving up a TD all season in 2012. This season has been a different story, though not for lack of effort. Maybe it’s the new D.C. Walton, but the defense as a whole struggled mightily out of the gate. They’ve found their stride the last couple weeks though.

    Does Finnegan make the roster next year? His cap number and the ascension of Tru Johnson make it hard, but he’s still youngish and maybe playing exclusively out of the slot next year helps?

  3. the thing is finnegan may not be working out this year but his attitude and style of play has rubbed of on jenkins and trumaine so he had value and if mcgee learns you have to look back for the ball and not just grab the wr he should improve and we will be better for it next year
