Former Southern Miss star Austin Davis, has been named the starting quarterback of the St. Louis Rams as they prepare to travel to face the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday.

Davis had been in competition with Shaun Hill for the starting gig until Hill went down with an injury in the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.
 
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher previously said Hill would return to the starting line-up once healthy.

Both quarterbacks were replacing former first-round pick Sam Bradford, who went down with a season-ending injury early in the preseason.

Davis has 754 passing yards this season with three touchdowns and three interceptions with a QB rating of 93.1.
