Austin misses Rams practice, but out of boot

AP - Sports

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin did not practice Wednesday, but is no longer in a walking boot.

Coach Jeff Fisher says Austin is improving but remains day to day. Earlier in the week, Fisher thought there was a chance Austin could practice later in the week.

Austin injured his left ankle getting tackled at the end of a 56-yard run in a loss at Arizona in Week 13 and did not practice or play last week.

Running back Daryl Richardson (thigh) also did not practice and is the only other player listed on the injury report.
