St. Louis Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold was able to fully participate in practice for the first time this week and his status for Sunday's game against the Redskins is much improved. Saffold looked to be severely injured when he fell head-first in their week 1 loss to the Lions and was carted off of the field, but is now able to practice without limitations just a few days later.
Fantasy Analysis: This is great news for Saffold and those personally concerned for him, but also good news for anyone that owns Sam Bradford, Steven Jackson, or any other Rams fantasy players. The Rams have had terrible protection issues since the retirement of Orlando Pace and Bradford is one of the most frequently-sacked quarterbacks in the game, but having Saffold there instead of his backup is a major boon to him and Jackson for protection.
