St. Louis Rams QB Marc Bulger out with a broken leg

He also has concussion related symptoms. From AP-

St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger will be sidelined 3-6 weeks with a fractured left leg sustained in Sunday’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The team said it would not place Bulger on injured reserve.

Bulger underwent two MRI exams Monday, one on his groin and hamstring and a second for what the team believed was a swollen knee. He also was to be tested for concussion-related symptoms Tuesday after a physically demanding loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo said the first MRI revealed a strain.

“Marc Bulger’s pretty banged up,” the coach said. “Marc’s got a few things going on.”

Bulger has completed 56.7 percent of his passes for five touchdowns and six interceptions for the Rams (1-9). Backup Kyle Boller will make his third start of the year Sunday against the Seahawks.

I would be surprised if Bulger is back this season. Broken legs need time to heal, and a possible concussion compounds matters.
