According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Rams will not be penalized for mishandling Case Keenum's concussion last week against the Ravens.

Keenum was somehow cleared to continue after taking a crushing blow from Timmy Jernigan late in the fourth quarter. He fumbled on the next play. The league responded by getting all 32 teams on the phone for a mandatory conference call on Tuesday night to go over player safety. It's unclear why the Rams are getting a free pass here, but it's safe to say there will be consequences the next time a team fails to diagnose an obvious concussion like the one Keenum suffered last week.

Case Keenum (concussion, questionable) practiced on a limited basis Friday, but has yet to pass through the NFL's protocol.

The Rams are preparing to start Nick Foles at Cincinnati. For Keenum, the only question left is whether he'll be cleared to serve as Foles' backup.
Nov 27 - 3:12 PM

Case Keenum (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice.

The Rams aren't very good, but they are at least revealing with injury situations. We should have a better feel for Keenum's availability on Friday.
Nov 26 - 2:30 PM

Case Keenum (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Keenum is still the concussion protocol, but the limited practice puts him on track to play. The Rams plan to start Keenum if he gets cleared for Sunday.
Nov 25 - 6:34 PM

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Case Keenum (concussion) will start if he's healthy Sunday against the Bengals.

Coach Jeff Fisher is hoping Keenum will be able to practice in some capacity on Wednesday. Keenum was awful in last week's loss to the Ravens but the Rams still think he's a better option than Nick Foles. St. Louis has averaged a league-worst 174 passing yards per game this season.
Nov 24 - 6:58 PM

Case Keenum (concussion) didn't practice on Tuesday but coach Jeff Fisher said it's "possible" he could do "some things" on Wednesday.

The Rams held a light session on Tuesday. Keenum was concussed Sunday but hasn't been ruled out for Week 12. He had a dismal game against the Ravens and isn't guaranteed to start even if he's healthy.
Nov 24 - 6:35 PM

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Case Keenum (concussion) is feeling better and could play this week.

The NFL is currently investigating why Keenum was not removed from the game after clearly suffering a concussion last week, but it is a good sign for his health that Fisher is so optimistic. Even if Keenum is able to play, it is fair to question if the Rams want him to start after he threw for 136 yards on 26 attempts against Baltimore.

Case Keenum was diagnosed with a concussion following the Rams' Week 11 loss to the Ravens.

Keenum very clearly smacked the back of his head on the M&T Bank Stadium turf in the fourth quarter and immediately grabbed at the back of his head in some pain. The ATC spotter at the game and coach Jeff Fisher completely ignored it and left Keenum in the game. The Rams will likely get a letter from the league this week. Keenum was god-awful in the loss, going 12-of-26 for 136 yards. Nick Foles likely has better than 50-50 odds of starting Week 12 at the Bengals.
Nov 22 - 5:32 PM

Case Keenum completed 12-of-26 passes for 136 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions in the Rams' 16-13, Week 11 loss to the Ravens.

The Ravens tried to give this one to the Rams, but they weren't having it, instead opting to blow a 13-3, fourth-quarter lead. Keenum got the start in place of a benched Nick Foles and might have actually played worse than Foles has at any point this season. He horribly under-threw a deep shot by about 10 yards and fumbled three times, losing two. Keenum's touchdown went to a wide-open Lance Kendricks, who snuck inside the pylon for a 30-yard score. Keenum was bad enough that Foles might be back under center Week 12 in Cincinnati. Bengals D/ST will be a popular streamer.

Coach Jeff Fisher announced Monday that the Rams have benched Nick Foles for Case Keenum.

In March, the Rams acquired Foles, a 2015 fourth-round pick, and a 2016 second-round pick from the Eagles for Sam Bradford and a 2015 fifth-round pick. In August, they proceeded to sign Foles to a two-year extension with $13.8 million guaranteed. Benching Foles after nine starts is an obvious admission of defeat, but the benching was very much earned. Painfully inaccurate in the short and intermediate sections of the field, Foles managed a 56.6 completion rate and 6.6 yards per attempt average with a 7:6 TD-to-INT ratio and two lost fumbles. Foles' 27-touchdown 2013 season under Chip Kelly is shaping up as an obvious fluke. Two different coaching staffs have now determined that he isn't the answer. Keenum is an athletic, aggressive passer with scattershot ball placement but a willingness to pull the trigger on tight-window throws. The Rams acquired him from the Texans for a seventh-round pick this past spring.

Case Keenum will be the Rams' No. 2 quarterback.

Keenum has beaten out Austin Davis for the right to back up Nick Foles. With the Rams using (wasting?) a third-round pick on Sean Mannion, Davis will probably be waived. Keenum has some raw playmaking ability, but is prone to streaks of wildness/total ineffectiveness. He's a second-tier backup.
Sep 1 - 3:42 PM

Rams acquired QB Case Keenum from the Texans in exchange for a seventh-round pick in 2016.

The Texans did well to get anything at all for Keenum, who was bound to be cut after the re-signing of Ryan Mallett and an expected deal with Brian Hoyer. Keenum will compete for backup duties in St. Louis, battling Austin Davis for the No. 2 role behind new starter Nick Foles.
Mar 10 - 5:45 PM

Case Keenum completed 25-of-35 passes for 250 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Texans' 23-17, Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Released at final cuts by the Texans coming out of the preseason, Keenum spent the majority of the season on the Rams’ practice squad before getting snapped up ahead of Week 16 and starting the final two games of the season, leading the Texans to two wins and keeping their playoff dreams alive. Keenum is a fearless gunslinger but has severe accuracy issues. He’s not an NFL starter, but should be given every opportunity to win a backup job somewhere in 2015.

Case Keenum completed 20-of-42 passes for 185 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception in the Texans' 25-13, Week 16 win over the Ravens.

The Texans tried to keep their starting quarterback a secret, failing to announce one before kickoff, but the wide belief was it would be Keenum. After going 0-8 with the Texans in 2013, Keenum was signed off the Rams' practice squad on Monday and gets his first NFL win Sunday. He started off hot, picking on Ravens RCB Rashaan Melvin, but eventually cooled off considerably after the opening drive. Keenum still played better than expected considering the circumstances. The 8-7 Texans close out the year against the Jaguars in Week 17.
