The Only Way The Rams Could Get Worse? Swine Flu.


Just when it seems like they've hit bottom...

...USA Today reports that the Rams had to cancel practice today because of a swine flu outbreak.

The St. Louis Rams canceled practice on Thursday after the team confirmed cases of swine flu/H1N1 within the team.

There's no word yet on how many of which players are infected. The Rams are scheduled to host Houston on Sunday.

The NFL has provisions in place that would allow teams to activate up to eight players off their practice squad if swine flu cases hamper the team from fielding a roster on game day.
And you thought losing was the only infectious disease in the team's locker room.

In other Rams news, Richie Incognito has a new home...
He was claimed off waivers by the Buffalo Bills. They have an injury-depleted offensive line and Incognito may step in and play immediately.

The smart money was on the Seahawks acquiring him. After all their coach just said they "need more dirtbags" on the offensive line.
