St. Louis Rams cornerback Ron Bartell returned to practice today, although he was limited in team drills. Bartell has been nursing a bruised thigh and sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday.
Also, linebacker Chris Chamberlain, who has been out since suffering a turf toe injury in the season opener, got through the week of practice without incident. In fact, he said his toe felt better each day and that he expects to play Sunday at Tampa Bay.
The news on wide receiver Mardy Gilyard isn't good, though. He didn't practice Friday, meaning that his sore hamstring apparently flared up after he did limited work earlier in the week. His chances of suiting up Sunday aren't good, which should mean more action for Laurent Robinson.
