More bad news for the winless Rams, as CB Bradley Fletcher will miss the remainder of the 2011 season.

Fletcher collided with WR Mike Sims-Walker at Wednesday's practice and tore his ACL, PFW correspondent and St. Louis Post-Dispatch writer Jim Thomas reported.

The Rams lost CB Ron Bartell for the season to a neck injury in Week One, meaning St. Louis is down to its reserve corners, Justin King and veteran Al Harris, who will take Fletcher's place. Second-year CB Jerome Murphy is also on injured reserve.

The Rams have a bye this week.
