Rams’ head coach Jeff Fisher remains committed to veteran quarterback Shaun Hill, despite his injury struggles. Fisher announced that when he is healthy enough to return to the field, he will return as the starter, according to the team’s official Twitter page.
Hill missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with a thigh injury, and Austin Davis started today in the 19-17 win over the Buccaneers.
Davis also played a large number of snaps in relief last week in a 34-0 loss to the Vikings, after Hill originally suffered the injury.
Davis made a number of plays as the teams swapped field goals down the stretch of today’s game. He put the team in position for what turned out to be a game winning field goal. If Hill misses more time, and Davis can continue to make plays, he could force Fisher to make a tough decision when Hill is healthy enough to return.
