Rams WR Danario Alexander should see more snaps after his outstanding performance against the Giants on Monday night, assuming his knee holds up.

He said Thursday that he feels fine. He has to manage his knee, but he is hoping for more playing time in Sunday's home game against Baltimore (1-1).

"Yeah, I would love to be out there for more plays," said Alexander. "I'll just keep pushing forward. I don't have any pain. I manage it and the coaches are always watching. I want to stay fresh for the game."

Alexander has earned more playing time, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said.

"Danario had a great game and he's had a good week in practice," McDaniels said. "He's earned the right to be out there more certainly. We're excited about what he can do."

Coach Steve Spagnuolo acknowledged Alexander brings a different dimension to the offense.

"He's a big-play guy, a big, tall receiver," Spagnuolo said. "I think Sam likes throwing to him. He's done some productive things. We'll get him in there more and more. We all know what he's battling.

"I watch him all day. It's amazing what he does from a physical standpoint with the injury he has. He'll never tell you he has anything wrong but he does have to manage it."

Fantasy Impact: 

The fact that Alexander was inactive for W1 underscores his injury history. He's a big play guy, so don't be surprised if he has a goose egg now and then if he and Sam Bradford fail to hook up on a deep pass.
