Brian Quick Injury Updates

Rams WR Brian Quick will play against the Cardinals this weekend.  “Had a great week (of practice); hope it carries over to the game,'' HC Jeff Fisher said Friday.  Quick was a healthy scratch for St. Louis' first 3 games after missing most of the offseason after last year's serious shoulder injury.  But he's the most talented WR on the roster and could quickly emerge as the #1 option in the passing game.  Quick is worth monitoring closely -- and adding now in deeper leagues.

Rams HC Jeff Fisher said WR Brian Quick's Week 1 deactivation was "numbers related" and not "physically related."  So Quick is behind Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey and Chris Givens on the depth chart.  We'd say it's tough to believe, but this is the Rams we're talking about.  Quick spent most of the offseason rehabbing last year's nasty shoulder injury but was the team's best WR in camp by most accounts.  We'd still bet on him working his way up the totem pole this year, so he's worth stashing in deep leagues.

Rams WR Brian Quick is a surprise inactive for today's game against the Seahawks.  It's unclear if he suffered a setback with last year's shoulder injury or just isn't ready for a role.  We'd continue to stash Quick in fantasy leagues as St. Louis' potential #1 WR later this season.  Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey will serve as the Rams' top 3 WRs today, but none are strong fantasy plays in a tough matchup.

Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) is on track to be ready for Week 1, according to insider Nick Wagoner.  Quick separated his shoulder and tore his rotator cuff last October and has spent the offseason rehabbing.  He was able to do some individual drills this spring, per Wagoner, and should be ready for full-squad work at some point during training camp.  Before going down last year, Quick was emerging as St. Louis #1 WR.  He tallied 25 catches for 375 yards and 3 scores in 7 games.  He could emerge as a weekly fantasy starter in 2015 if he puts that shoulder injury behind him.

Rams HC Jeff Fisher admitted that WR Brian Quick (shoulder) might not be ready for the start of training camp.  "There will be some question marks there," Fisher said. "He may be [ready]. I can't say. The next three or four months are going to be important.  It was a very, very difficult early rehab process. It was an extensive, extensive injury. He's starting to see the light now. He's doing good. He's worked hard.”  Quick suffered a torn rotator cuff and separated shoulder last October.  He was seemingly in the midst of a breakout season before going down, but missing this entire offseason could stunt his progress.  Quick looks like a WR4 or 5 -- albeit with upside -- in 2015 fantasy drafts.

The Rams have confirmed that WR Brian Quick will miss the rest of the season because of the rotator cuff tear he suffered Sunday. The injury creates opportunity for WRs Kenny Britt and Stedman Bailey on the outside and leaves some targets on the field for everyone. St. Louis remains 1 of the ugliest fantasy situations in the NFL, however. We wouldn't recommend chasing any Ram too hard in your fantasy football league.
