Rams C Scott Wells suffered a fractured foot and will be placed on the "designated for return" injured reserve, head coach Jeff Fisher said Monday.
Wells started in Sunday’s loss to the Lions in his first game with St. Louis. Robert Turner replaced Wells at center. The new I.R. “designated to return” rule for players with major injuries allows Wells to return to a game after eight weeks.
After spending eight seasons with the Packers, Wells signed a four-year, $24 million contract with the Rams in March.
The Rams also lost starting OLT Rodger Saffold to a neck injury in Sunday’s game.
