Rookie Null might be Rams’ starting QB vs. Titans

The Rams might need to use Plan C at quarterback.

The team confirmed on its Twitter page that rookie QB Keith Null could start Sunday against the Titans because of injuries to Marc Bulger and Kyle Boller.

Bulger hasn’t played since a Week 11 loss to the Cardinals, and the Rams said Saturday that the nine-year veteran had an MRI the previous day. Bulger’s broken leg is starting to heal, according to the team, but he will be out at least two more weeks.

Boller, who has started in Bulger’s absence, was limited by a sore thigh Thursday and Friday, and if the ex-Raven can’t play Sunday, the Rams would turn to Null, their sixth-round draft pick. Null played at West Texas A&M under former Chargers and Cowboys QB Ryan Leaf but hasn’t seen action in an NFL regular-season game.

Mike Reilly, an undrafted rookie out of Central Washington, is the only other quarterback on the Rams’ roster.

The Titans also might not have their starting QB for the game, although Vince Young said Friday that he plans to play despite a right knee injury.
