The Rams said that linebacker Henry Rolling will not play against the Steelers on Sunday.
Rolling--signed during the off-season to replace Kevin Greene, who moved on to Pittsburgh--fractured his thumb in Sunday’s 36-6 loss to Green Bay and will be out at least three weeks. Chris Martin, obtained in an off-season trade with the Chiefs, will start in place of Rolling.
Linebacker Shane Conlan is questionable for Sunday’s game because of a groin injury. If Conlan cannot play, Tom Homco will start. Wide receiver Todd Kinchen (knee) and linebacker Leon White (hamstring) are also listed as questionable.
Tight end Pat Carter will miss the game because of a foot injury. Tight ends Troy Drayton and Travis McNeal are available, but Jim Price, who practiced for the first time Wednesday after signing a contract Tuesday, is not eligible to play until Sept. 26th against Houston.
Wide receiver Henry Ellard (ankle) is probable along with tackle Jackie Slater (toe), wide receiver Sean LaChapelle (shoulder) and cornerback Darryl Henley (shoulder).
The Rams announced that they are 18,164 tickets short of selling out Anaheim Stadium and lifting the local television blackout for Sunday’s game. The team has until 1 p.m. today to reach a sellout (67,000).
