Oft-Injured WR Alexander Hangs On with Rams
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Danario Alexander had enough positives in St. Louis Rams training camp to outweigh questions about his durability.
After surviving cutdown day, the second-year receiver can worry less about his oft-injured left knee and turn his attention to Sunday's opener against Philadelphia.
The Rams cut receivers Mardy Gilyard and Donnie Avery, opting for Alexander -- a 6-foot-5, 215-pounder who gives the team a true deep threat.
Gilyard, a fourth-round pick last year, was released Saturday before signing with the New York Jets. Avery was a second-round pick in 2008 and the first wide receiver chosen that season. He missed all of last season with a knee injury.
