Fisher had said previously that Keenum would return as their starting quarterback once he was cleared of his concussion and ready to play. He wound up being the team’s backup quarterback for today’s game against the Cardinals.
Nick Foles has really struggled to say the least, so this really shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Foles, 26, came over in a trade from the Eagles that sent Sam Bradford to Philadelphia. He had one year remaining on his rookie contract when the Rams signed him to a two-year, $24 million extension back in August.
Entering today’s game, Foles had completed just 57.9 percent of his passes for 1,906 yards, seven touchdowns and nine interceptions.
This season, Keenum has appeared in two games this season and thrown for 136 yards while completing 46.2 percent of his passes to go along with one touchdown and no picks.
