Even in their bye week, the reeling Rams keep getting bombarded with really bad news.  For starters, an already grave situation at cornerback got worse when starter Bradley Fletcher suffered a torn ACL affer colliding in a Wednesday practice with WR Mike Sims-Walker, who, it's also worth noting, has been a major bust coming off an absolutely awful performance against the Redskins. One day later it was revealed that WR Danny Amendola, who dislocated his elbow in Week One and was considered Sam Bradford's most reliable target, would be going on injured reserve. With the Rams also having lost starting CB Ron Bartell with a season-ending neck injury, the combination of newcomer Rod Hood, 36-year-old Al Harris, beleaguered Justin King, ex-Packer Josh Gordy and Marquis Johnson (coming off the physically-unable-to-perform list soon) figures to be facing a major challenge moving forward.
