Kellen Clemens QB SD 2 Months
Clemens completed 1 of 3 passes for 10 yards after replacing Philip Rivers (hand) with two minutes left in the third quarter of Sunday's 37-0 loss at Miami.
Rivers' injury isn't considered serious, as the team simply decided it wasn't worth putting their starting quarterback into a game they were trailing by 37. The Chargers are off in Week 10, allowing Rivers extra time to heal, but if the injury turns out to be more serious than initially believed, Clemens could get the Week 11 start against the Raiders,

Clemens completed 14 of 21 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns in Friday night's exhibition loss at Seattle.
The Bolts did not play many of their regulars for long in this game, but the solid performance by Clemens is notable because it appears that he will serve as a solid backup option to Philip Rivers this year and might actually be an upgrade over former No. 2, Charlie Whitehurst.

Chargers agreed to terms with QB Kellen Clemens, formerly of the Rams.

Kellen Clemens completed 21-of-30 passes for 157 yards, one touchdown, and two picks in St. Louis' Week 17 loss to Seattle.
Clemens wound up starting nine games following Sam Bradford's ACL tear, compiling an 8:7 TD-to-INT ratio as a caretaker quarterback who severely limited what the Rams could do offensively. They changed their entire offense with Clemens under center, morphing from a spread to run-heavy team in an effort to "hide" Clemens. Clemens is now an impending free agent. St. Louis should look to upgrade in the offseason, though OC Brian Schottenheimer's familiarity with Clemens could buy him another year in the Gateway City.

Kellen Clemens completed 16-of-27 passes for 181 yards and two interceptions in the Rams' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.
Clemens was downright awful, which tends to happen more often than not with him. He was indecisive with the football and made some really bad throws. Clemens' first interception was a pick-six that he threw right to Karlos Dansby. The second was a heave down the middle of the field. Clemens was sacked four times and hit numerous other times. Backup QB Austin Davis was warming up at one point after Clemens was decked from behind on a sack. Clemens won't be a fantasy option next week against the Saints at home.

Kellen Clemens completed 9-of-16 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in St. Louis' Week 10 win over the Colts.
Clemens had Tavon Austin to thank for his big day, as the rookie wideout turned his only two catches into 138 yards and two touchdowns. Otherwise, Clemens was called on to simply not lose the game. He spent the majority of the afternoon sticking the ball into Zac Stacy's chest, though he botched one handoff, getting credited with a lost fumble. It's quite possible the yardage will go down as a season high for the Rams' interim game manager. Clemens will be a low-end QB2 coming off the Rams' Week 11 bye.

Kellen Clemens completed 20-of-35 passes for 210 yards, a touchdown, and 16 yards rushing in the Rams' Week 9 loss to Tennessee.
Clemens has a cleaner-looking throwing motion than Tim Tebow, but the results are ordinarily the same. Clemens is a scattershot passer who makes mistakes with bodies around him. He's a major downgrade from Sam Bradford. The Rams play the Colts next. Look for Clemens to make a third straight start.

Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Kellen Clemens will start Sunday against the Titans.
Clemens was brutal in the Rams' Monday-night loss to the Seahawks, completing just 15-of-31 passes for 158 yards and two interceptions. He was unarguably the worst player on the field and likely cost the Rams a chance to pull off the upset victory. The Rams still believe Clemens gives the team its best chance to win. They need to lean on the running game more moving forward. Austin Davis and Brady Quinn are the Nos. 2 and 3 quarterbacks. Davis has been in the system for a year-and-a-half. Clemens isn't an option in two-quarterback leagues.

Kellen Clemens completed 15-of-31 passes for 158 yards and two interceptions in Monday night's Week 8 loss to the Seahawks.
Making his first start of the season in place of Sam Bradford (torn ACL), Clemens was pitiful. His first interception wasn't entirely his fault. Jared Cook ran a clumsy route and looked disinterested the entire play, but it was still a poorly thrown ball. The second pick was an overthrow of Austin Pettis on a basic curl route. OC Brian Schottenheimer then put the ball in Clemens' hands on the final play of the game. On fourth-and-goal from the one-yard line with four seconds to play, Clemens threw a terrible fade to Brian Quick that fell hopelessly to the ground. Clemens also sees ghosts in the pocket. He's going to hurt the Rams more than he's going to help them down the stretch. It wouldn't be a surprise if Austin Davis eventually replaces Clemens under center. Clemens will get another start against the Titans next week. He's not an option in two-quarterback leagues.

QB Kellen Clemens will start for the Rams in Week 8.
Sam Bradford (ACL) is done for the year and the Rams aren't signing Tim Tebow. That leaves Clemens, a 30-year-old former second-round pick of the Jets in 2006. He's started 12 games in his career, going 191-of-367 (52.0 percent) for 2,200 yards with seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Clemens is highly unlikely to be able to sustain offense for the Rams, especially against the Seahawks' fearsome defense in Week 8. Even owners in two-quarterback leagues need to aim higher.
