ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams' first-round draft pick, defensive tackle Michael Brockers, could make his debut this week coming off a high right ankle sprain.

Brockers was limited in practice Wednesday, but both the player and coach Jeff Fisher are optimistic about playing Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. Brockers would be ahead of schedule after getting hurt in the preseason finale with an injury that typically sidelines players for a month.

The 322-pound Brockers thought there was a "pretty good chance" he'd play after his ankle held up during individual drills.

The 21-year-old Brockers was the 14th overall pick after two seasons at LSU and is the youngest player on the roster.
