ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis quarterback Marc Bulger suffered a concussion in Sunday's game against Seattle, and the Rams said he would not return.
Bulger was injured while making a shovel pass midway through the first quarter. He was hit by several players, but threw a pass that was intercepted by defensive end Patrick Kerney.
Bulger, who missed two games earlier this season with broken ribs, walked on his own to the locker room. He was replaced by Gus Frerotte.
The starting QB has taken a beating behind an offensive line decimated by injuries this season. Bulger was hit several times Sunday, including a blindside sack by Kerney that forced a fumble on the Rams' first possession. The Rams recovered and Bulger stayed in for two more possessions.
Bulger was 3-for-5 for 32 yards and the one interception. He has been sacked 30 times this season.
Bulger has completed 61 percent of his passes with six touchdowns and nine interceptions in what has been a disappointing season after he signed a six-year, $65 million contract extension on the first day of training camp. That deal made him the highest-paid player in franchise history. The contract included $27 million in guaranteed money and put him in a group of six quarterbacks making $10 million annually.
St. Louis' problems on the offensive line began in Week 1 when left tackle Orlando Pace was lost for the season with a torn triceps, the first of several linemen to be hurt. The Rams have used 15 line combinations this season.
Center Brett Romberg also left in the first quarter with an ankle injury. His return was questionable. He missed three games earlier this season with injuries to both ankles.
Seattle cornerback Kelly Jennings injured his shin in the first half. His return was questionable.
