St. Louis Rams running back Zac Stacy was unable to practice as he continues to work through the NFL’s concussion protocol. Head coach Jeff Fisher said he is doing well and reports suggest he was able to do a little running on the side during the team’s walk through, which is positive news. Stacy’s status for this week as the Rams prepare to take on the San Francisco 49ers this week.
Stacy has been a nice boost to the Rams offense in his rookie season as a fifth round pick out of Vanderbilt. He has been able to run for 624 yards and 4 touchdowns on 141 carries. Stacy has also had 16 catches for 107 yards and another touchdown.
His production started when Sam Bradford was healthy, but the positive signs with Stacy have been due to the fact that he has continued producing even with Kellen Clemens under center.
The Rams are 5-6 and look to be the outside looking in, but they have been able to find some productive players in what has been considered by those outside the locker room a lost season. The Rams have been playing the role of spoiler and have won back to back games against the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears, so they have the potential to give the 49ers problems this week and continue building momentum potentially allowing them to have a big season next year.
