Over two seasons Quick has 29 catches for 458 yards (15.8 avg.) and four touchdowns.

Neither Quick nor Pettis has managed to do much recently. The Rams finish the season in Week 17 against the Seahawks.
Quick came down with a short, 3-yard pass from Kellen Clemens with 23 seconds remaining in the game. He was targeted four times and finished the game with three grabs for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 23-13 defeat.
Quick has five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown over his last two games. He'll look to stay productive in Week 14 at Arizona.
