Rookie Null gets the start for Rams

In training camp, the Rams never could have anticipated taking a long look at sixth-round draft choice Keith Null during the regular season.

They are getting that chance in Week 14.

Null is starting for the Rams while Kyle Boller and Marc Bulger recover from injuries.

A strong performance would not mean a whole lot because the Rams likely will not go into next season with Null as a candidate to start. But if he can show them something, the team can feel better about its depth at the position. Null has completed 7 of 8 passes so far.
