ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger failed medical tests and has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
The news came Thursday, four days after Bulger sustained a concussion against the Seattle Seahawks. Bulger left in the first quarter and was held out of practice Wednesday.
Bulger said Monday he felt much better and expected to play against the Falcons, but backup Gus Frerotte said Wednesday that Bulger looked groggy.
The Rams (2-9) took steps in case Bulger was not cleared, and elevated Brock Berlin from the practice squad as the potential backup behind Frerotte. St. Louis has gone with two quarterbacks on the active roster all season.
