Rams | Outside chance Danny Amendola plays in Week 8

Thu, 25 Oct 2012 11:38:04 -0700

There is an outside chance St. Louis Rams WR Danny Amendola (clavicle) could play in the team's Week 8 game against the New England Patriots in London. "It kind of depends on how I feel tomorrow. There's an outside chance I could play," Amendola said. Head coach Jeff Fisher also did not rule out playing Amendola, saying they will have to see how the rest of the week goes.

Fantasy Tip: While Amendola is still likely a long shot to play this week, it is obviously great news that he is this close to returning and will likely be ready to go after the Rams’ bye week. When Amendola does return, Chris Givens likely will return to more of a reserve role.

Then it went to various other guys pulling at me and grabbing me." Hall added, "Later on, coach Smith, Mike came over and grabbed me, talking (stuff) to me. Saying he'll kick my (butt) and all this other (stuff)." Hall does not believe that Smith was coming over to break up the fight, and feels something needs to be done about Smith's actions.

Wed, 03 May 2006 10:36:40 -0700

TitansOnline.com reports Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher feels seventh-round draft pick RB Quinton Ganther brings a unique skill set to the Titans.

A shorter guy, still thick, still strong, understands the passing game, but very nifty, very quick, very sudden, very elusive – one of those kind of guys. So, it will give us a little bit change of pace for maybe what people in the league for years and years called a third-down back, this guy will be more along those lines."
