ST. LOUIS, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- St. Louis Rams quarterback Marc Bulger suffered a fracture of the little finger of his passing hand Monday, and will miss the next two weeks, the team said.

Rams Coach Steve Spagnuolo called it a "small fracture" that was shown to be non-displaced. Spagnuolo said Bulger won't wear a cast and instead will have the finger taped.

Spagnuolo said Bulger "won't do very much for two weeks, just to be on the safe side."

Kyle Boller will be the Rams' starting quarterback in Bulger's absence.

The Rams have a pre-season home game Friday against the Atlanta Falcons.
