So much for Austin Davis remaining the Rams’ starter.
After previously indicating that Davis would keep the starting job in St. Louis, Rams coach Jeff Fisher has reconsidered. According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Shaun Hill will start Sunday’s game against the Broncos.
Hill opened the season as the starter after Sam Bradford suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason. But after Hill suffered a Week One injury, Fisher gave the job to Davis and said Davis would keep the job even after Hill was completely healed.
Now Fisher has changed his mind. Davis has shown flashes of talent, but he has also made some big mistakes, including three fourth-quarter turnovers in Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals. Fisher wants a veteran he can trust not to make game-changing mistakes, and Fisher thinks Hill is the guy. At least for now.
