Bulger expects quick return after concussion

The St. Louis Rams’ injury report included several positives on Wednesday. QB Marc Bulger said he isn’t feeling any effects of the concussion he suffered against the Bears in Week 12, and gave himself a “99 percent” chance of playing Sunday against the visiting Dolphins.

Bulger, who was listed as limited in practice, was able to pass a test gauging his recovery on Wednesday.

“It was pretty foggy for about 30 minutes,” Bulger said about sitting out after the direct hit from Bears rusher Adewale Ogunleye. “I was clearing up in the second half, but I think at that point the doctors wanted to do the safe thing and I agreed with them.”

Sunday could also mark the return of RB Steven Jackson, who took a limited number of reps on Wednesday but will get more work on Thursday as he recovers from a thigh injury that has kept him out for most of the last five games.

“We scripted the reps out that we needed to see and we will give him a little more tomorrow based on how he feels,” said coach Jim Haslett. “Hopefully, there is not a setback and Friday we will do short yardage and goal line and he should be OK. We will see how he is tomorrow.”

OT Orlando Pace (knee) took part in a limited portion of practice Wednesday, while CB Tye Hill (foot) and LB Chris Draft (foot) were held out.
