Briggs, Paea out; McClellin could return

LAKE FOREST — Lance Briggs, Stephen Paea and Jeremiah Ratliff are all expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Rams.

Shea McClellin, though, is expected to return to practice Wednesday and could be back in action against the Rams after missing the last two games.

Marc Trestman said Monday that Briggs’ timeline of six weeks missed with a shoulder injury is still accurate and that he’s ‘a couple weeks” away from returning.

Paea re-injured the toe that kept him out of games against the Saints and Giants earlier in the season in Sunday's win over the Ravens. He is out week-to-week. Look for Landon Cohen to start for Paea in St. Louis, with Corey Wootton at the three-technique.

Ratliff is still considered week-to-week.
