Cards and Rams update 8/23...

-Relief pitcher Jason Motte will take on a rehabilitation assignment this week, his assignment will likely be with the AAA Memphis club, or the AA Springfield club. Motte was placed on the DL Aug. 3rd, with a right shoulder sprain. He is expected to return to the team this weekend, for the series against the Washington Nationals.

-Outfielder Colby Rasmus will not play tonight against Pittsburgh. Rasmus has a strained calf muscle. It is unknown, for now, when he will return. But it is not likely that he will be out for a great length of time.

-SS Brendan Ryan will sit out tonight (8/23) against Pittsburgh. He will be available on the bench if needed.

-Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo confirmed that QB AJ Feeley will be held out of the team's 3rd preseason game at New England. QB Sam Bradford will be the starter.

-WR Danario Alexander had his first practice today. Today's practice was the second-to-last training camp practice; Alexander reportedly took 1/3 of his snaps with the 1st teams offense, and took the rest of his snaps with the 2nd string offense. But, it is still not clear if Alexander will play Thursday against the Patriots, but he is in practice now, and fighting for a roster spot. Also, Alexander's new jersey number is #84.
