Keenum yet to pass concussion protocol
ST. LOUIS (AP) Unless Case Keenum passes the NFL concussion protocol Saturday, St. Louis will turn to benched starter Nick Foles at quarterback.
Keenum split practice time Friday with Foles, who was relieved of his duties two weeks ago by coach Jeff Fisher. Keenum had returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday after missing Tuesday’s workout because of a concussion.
The Rams (4-6) did not make Keenum available to reporters after the practice because he’s still in the concussion protocol.
Keenum made his first start of the season last week and was injured when his helmet banged into the turf after being sacked with about a minute to play in a 16-13 loss at Baltimore. He threw for 136 yards, going 12 of 26, and lost two fumbles.
Fisher benched Foles two weeks ago after a 37-13 blowout loss to the visiting Bears.
