Rams center Scott Wells (broken foot, injured reserve designated for return) has shed his walking boot and is aiming to return to the lineup in Week 10 against the 49ers.
Wells was handed a three-year, $24 million contract as a free agent in the offseason, but he has battled injuries ever since inking the deal. He missed much of training camp after knee surgery and then broke his foot in Week 1 against Detroit. St. Louis placed him on injured reserve designated for return, and Robert Turner was plugged in at center. Turner would likely shift to left guard to replace journeyman Quinn Ojinnaka upon Wells' return.
