The St. Louis Rams have returned to the practice field, a day after an undisclosed number of swine flu cases on the team forced them to cancel a workout.
Running back Steven Jackson and quarterback Kyle Boller were among four players who missed Friday's outdoor workout due to flulike symptoms Boller also missed practice Wednesday so the Rams are almost certain to go with rookie Keith Null for a second straight week against the Houston Texans.
Wide receiver Brandon Gibson and defensive tackle Darell Scott also missed Friday's practice, while center Jason Brown confirmed he'd been diagnosed with swine flu.
