Rams C Scott Wells has restructured his contract.
Entering the third year of a four-year deal, Wells' 2014 base salary has been reduced from $5.5 million to $1 million. He'll get some of that money back in the form of a $1.65 million roster bonus and $850,000 in per-game roster bonuses. The restructure is a firm sign the Rams have penciled Wells in as their starting center for one more year, ahead of sophomore Barrett Jones. Jun 9 - 12:39 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports "indications are that" the Rams will retain C Scott Wells for the 2014 season.

Wells counts $6.5 million against the cap, and the Rams could save $4.5 million by releasing him. But with none of the Rams' five offensive line positions settled, it would be wise to keep the 33-year-old around as a stabilizing presence. Wells fractured his fibula in December but will be fine for camp.

Rams C Scott Wells is in danger of being a salary cap casualty.

St. Louis' four-year, $24 million deal with Wells in 2012 has proven a predictable bust, as Wells has been oft-injured and struggled when healthy, particularly as a run blocker. Wells turned 33 three days ago and is owed a $5.5 million base salary for 2014. His 2013 season ended on injured reserve with a fractured fibula. The Rams do not have a viable in-house replacement.

Rams placed C Scott Wells on injured reserve with a fractured fibula, ending his season.

Wells broke his leg in Week 13. He was given a 3-4 week timetable for recovery. The Rams are shutting him down after being officially eliminated from the playoffs last week. Tim Barnes will handle center duties. OG Brandon Washington was promoted from the practice squad to take Wells' roster spot.

Rams C Scott Wells fractured his fibula in the first half of Sunday's game against the 49ers and will likely miss the rest of the season.

Wells was initially ruled out with an ankle injury. Tim Barnes replaced him to start the second half and will handle the duties for the season's remainder. Wells, 33 next month, started the first 12 games this season, but he'll end up missing 13-of-32 games since signing a four-year, $24 million contract two offseasons ago. He and his $5.5 million salary are candidates to be released in March.

The Rams' offensive line served up 26 sacks over the first ten games last year, but just nine in the six contests after C Scott Wells' return to the lineup.

Wells battled numerous injuries in '12 and had his knee scoped in January. He's fully participating in camp. "I feel great now and I’m really excited about this season," he said. From left to right, St. Louis' starting line looks like this: LT Jake Long, LG Chris Williams, C Wells, RG Harvey Dahl, RT Rodger Saffold.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said at the Combine that C Scott Wells is doing "fine" in his recovery from right knee surgery.

Wells had surgery on the same knee in June of 2012 and January of 2013, which is concerning for a 32-year-old football player. Fisher expects Wells to be ready for training camp in late July. St. Louis badly needs a healthy Wells.

Rams C Scott Wells underwent another right knee scope earlier this month, his second since last June.

The latest scope repaired torn cartilage. Wells suffered the setback just as he was returning from foot surgery in November, so he's undergone three separate surgeries in a seven-month span. Now 32, Wells struggled mightily as a run blocker in just seven starts in 2012. The Rams hope he'll be back by OTAs.

Rams activated C Scott Wells (foot) from injured reserve designated for return.

Wells broke his foot in Week 1 against the Lions and has been out ever since. After signing a four-year, $24 million deal in the offseason, Wells has been off the field far more than he's been on it. The pedestrian veteran Robert Turner has been starting in his place since Week 2 and has struggled with his run blocking. Wells, 32 in January, should be a major upgrade.
Mon, Nov 19, 2012 06:55:00 PM

Rams C Scott Wells (broken foot, I.R./designated for return) was not activated for Week 10 against the 49ers.

Wells was originally expected to return this week, but multiple team sources tell Pro Football Weekly that he won't be cleared until Week 12. The Rams will continue to start career-backup Robert Turner in his absence. Wells, currently on injured reserve, has resumed practicing on a limited basis.

Rams C Scott Wells (broken foot, I.R./designated for return) has resumed practicing.

Wells is eligible to return on Sunday, and has said he plans on starting against the 49ers. That could depend on how he looks in practice, but the early signs are positive. The Rams have two weeks to officially activate him. Wells' return would be a massive boost for one of the league's least talented offensive lines, both in the run and passing game.
Wed, Nov 7, 2012 04:00:00 PM

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.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher revealed Monday that C Scott Wells will go on injured reserve with a fractured foot.

It's a nightmare situation after St. Louis also lost LT Rodger Saffold (neck) indefinitely in the opener. Signed to a $24 million deal in the offseason, Wells was expected to spark the Rams' interior line as a plus run blocker and pass protector. The Rams will now turn to career backup Rob Turner at center. Steven Jackson managed just 53 yards on 21 carries in Week 1, and he may continue to struggle to find running lanes the rest of the way. The Rams are hopeful Wells will return after midseason on their injury-exempt list, but he's definitely going to miss the next 5-6 games.

Rams C Scott Wells did not return to the game after injuring his foot in the first half of Sunday's loss to the Lions.

The Rams lost both Wells and LT Roger Saffold (neck), forcing Rokevious Watkins and Wayne Hunter into action. It's one of the reasons Steven Jackson managed just 53 yards on 21 carries. The severity of Wells' injury is unknown right now.
Mon, Sep 10, 2012 10:23:00 AM

Rams C Scott Wells was forced from Sunday's game with a foot injury, and is questionable to return.

Journeyman Robert Turner is in at center. The Rams' lone meaningful addition to a line that was the league's worst in 2011, Wells missed the majority of camp as he recovered from knee surgery. His status is a major concern.
