Kellen Clemens remains Rams starting quarterback for Week 9

Michael Thomas

The Rams are sticking with Clemens for now.

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher confirmed that quarterback Kellen Clemens will remain the starter for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Clemens was pressed in action when Sam Bradford was lost for the season with a torn ACL. He got the start in Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks and struggled, completing 15 of 31 passes for 158 yards and two interceptions in a 14-9 loss. Some fans were so disappointed with his performance that they want Austin Davis to start, but Fisher still believes Clemens gives them the best chance to win.

Fisher hinted before the season that Davis would be the No. 2 quarterback behind Bradford, but that changed when the Rams signed Clemens. They also have Brady Quinn on the roster, who was signed as a third-stringer after Bradford went down. With the Rams fading in the NFC West race, Fisher may have to change his tune if Clemens continues to play as poorly as he did on Monday night.
