Rams head coach Jeff Fisher announced after Wednesday’s practice that the team has shifted to Shaun Hill as its starting quarterback.
“It’s never an easy decision when you make a change in the middle part of the season,” Fisher said. “But we looked at things Monday night and had lengthy discussions with the offensive staff, and just felt that the best thing to do at this point going forward was to lean on the experienced quarterback.”
Hill suffered a quad injury in the Rams’ Week 1 loss to the Vikings, and Austin Davis took over at the position. Fisher named Davis the full-time starter following the bye week. The head coach said he told the team today that he appreciated Davis’ hard work, poise, dedication, and tireless effort in preparation. Fisher also noted that when Davis was named the starter, Hill had, for all intents and purposes, lost his job due to injury.
Fisher said Hill's transition should be easy going back to the starter. Hill has some favorable matchups the next three weeks which could put him into the QB2 conversation: Chargers, Raiders and Redskins.
