Coach Jeff Fisher reiterated after Sunday's win that Shaun Hill (thigh) remains St. Louis' starting quarterback when healthy.

Austin Davis went 22-of-29 passing for 235 yards without a turnover against Tampa Bay, leading the Rams to their first win. Fisher still seems to think journeyman Hill is the Rams' best option. Whatever the case, the effectiveness of St. Louis' offense will begin and end with its running game. When Hill returns, he'll be utilized as a low-volume, Kellen Clemensian game manager.

Shaun Hill (thigh) is active for Week 2 against the Bucs, but Austin Davis is still expected to start.

Hill is only available in an emergency. Case Keenum is also active for the Rams. Inactive for the Rams are CB Trumaine Johnson, CB Lamarcus Joyner, RB Tre Mason, RB Trey Watts, OL Barrett Jones, DT Matt Conrath, and TE Alex Bayer.
Sep 14 - 2:43 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams will test Shaun Hill (thigh) in pre-game warmups, but they're preparing as if Austin Davis will start against the Bucs.

Hill, 34, didn't practice at all this week. Considering his age and lack of playing time the past few years, it's not surprising that he's not recovering quickly. Davis at least knows the offense and has some mobility. The Rams are going to pound the rock on the ground, and get Davis on the move versus Tampa.
Sep 14 - 8:19 AM

Rams QB Shaun Hill (questionable, thigh) traveled with the team to Tampa Bay.

This news means Hill still has a chance to play, but he is shaping up as a true game-time decision. Austin Davis would get the start if Hill is unable to play.
Sep 13 - 12:08 PM

Shaun Hill (questionable, thigh) will be a game-time decision in Week 2 against the Bucs after practicing on a limited basis Friday.

Coach Jeff Fisher was vague on Hill's availability following Friday's practice, also expressing confidence in backup Austin Davis. The Rams' entire offense is a fantasy situation to avoid entering a tough matchup at Tampa Bay.
Sep 12 - 2:22 PM

Shaun Hill (thigh) remained out of Rams practice Thursday.

It means Austin Davis should get the call against the Bucs, though OC Brian Schottenheimer hinted Hill may not have to practice to play. Either way, it's a sorry situation. We wouldn't even rule out Case Keenum getting snaps. The Bucs defense can be fired up with impunity for Week 2.
Sep 11 - 7:22 PM

Shaun Hill (thigh) is not practicing Wednesday.

Hill injured his quad shortly before halftime last week against the Vikings and missed the entire second half. Expect the Rams to bring him along slowly, as Hill is 34 years old and coming off a poor Week 1. Austin Davis isn't any better, but at least he's healthy. The Bucs will tee off on whoever is under center.
Sep 10 - 4:05 PM

Coach Jeff Fisher said Shaun Hill is "our starter," and will start if healthy for Week 2 versus Tampa Bay.

Fisher added that talk of Hill not being injured and benched instead "absurd." We believe it was a little bit of both. Hill may have injured his thigh, but he was playing horribly, giving Fisher a reason to sit him for the second half. Either way, the Rams are in dire straits at quarterback. Even though the Bucs were beaten by Derek Anderson, fire their defense up as a streaming play for Week 2.
Sep 8 - 6:29 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Rams QB Shaun Hill's (strained quad) status is "in doubt" for Week 2.

Hill's injury was either legitimate, or the Rams are milking it for all it's worth. Of course, it wouldn't be surprising for a 34 year old who previously hadn't started since 2010 to be experiencing muscle issues. We'll learn more about Hill's status when the Rams return to practice on Wednesday, but for now, it sounds like Austin Davis (or Case Keenum) will be under center against the Bucs. Whoever gets the call will be a bottom-three fantasy option for Week 2.
Sep 8 - 2:10 PM

Shaun Hill exited Sunday's Week 1 opener against the Vikings with a thigh injury, and has been replaced by Austin Davis.

The Rams are calling it an "injury" for Hill, though he was well enough to take the final kneel-down of the first half and came out of the tunnel to stand on the sideline with his helmet on. Frankly, he was terrible in the first 30 minutes, completing just 8-of-13 passes for 81 yards and one interception. The pick was a weak toss into double-coverage just before the half at his own 35-yard line that led to three points for the Vikings. The Rams trailed 13-0 heading to the locker room, before coach Jeff Fisher laid into his players on the sideline.
Sep 7 - 2:44 PM

Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Sunday the Rams will move forward with Shaun Hill as their starting quarterback.

It's hard to tell what Hill has left because he's 34 and hasn't made a regular season start since 2010, but his career stats are actually better than Sam Bradford's across the board. "Shaun is our guy," said Fisher. "We have around our QB position as much talent as we’ve had since we’ve been here." Expect St. Louis to implement a team formula similar to last year's with Kellen Clemens at the helm. Zac Stacy averaged 22.2 carries a game over the final nine weeks.
Aug 24 - 6:42 PM

With Sam Bradford (knee) lost for the season, Shaun Hill is the Rams' new starting quarterback.

Hill, 34, has made 26 career starts, though zero since 2010. He owns a lifetime 61.9 completion percentage, 6.7 YPA and 41:23 TD:INT ratio. His teams have gone 13-13 in his starts, earning him a reputation as one of the league's best backups. Be that as it may, Hill's age and lack of recent starts are reason to believe there will be a considerable amount of rust to knock off. The Rams should run the ball more than they did in 2013, when they were 17th in attempts. Hill is a bottom-barrel QB2 who can't yet be considered a viable streamer. He's backed up by third-year UDFA Austin Davis.
Aug 24 - 3:53 PM

Coming on in relief of Sam Bradford (knee), Rams backup QB Shaun Hill completed 2-of-6 passes for 45 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

Hill played just 1.5 series, which could be a sign the Rams are afraid they'll need him for Week 1. Hill drove the Rams 78 yards for a field on his lone full drive. Hill has always been considered one of the league's better backups, but will be a bottom-barrel QB2 if forced into the lineup.
Aug 23 - 11:25 PM

Rams agreed to terms with QB Shaun Hill, formerly of the Lions, on a one-year contract.

Hill, 34, visited the Rams in free agency's opening week and was always expected to sign with St. Louis. He makes his offseason home just a couple hours from St. Louis. Hill has attempted just 16 passes the past three seasons but boasts a 13-13 career record and an 85.9 passer rating. He'll run the first-team offense for however long Sam Bradford (ACL) is sidelined this spring.
