ST. Jimmy Smith Woens Jersey . LOUIS —St. Louis
Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold will be out at least a month because of a
right knee injury. Coach Jeff Fisher said Monday that Saffold has a third-degree
MCL sprain and other damage to the knee, but said it was not season-ending. “Hes
going to miss a number of weeks. How many weeks, I cant speculate now,” Fisher
said. “Hes got a pretty good attitude about it. Hes happy with the news that we
got as a result of the MRI.” Saffold was hurt advancing a fumble in the first
quarter Sunday in the Rams 31-28 victory over the Redskins. He was a surprise
starter after being hospitalized with a neck strain in Detroit after the opener
and listed as questionable prior to the game. Wayne Hunter, acquired late in the
preseason from the Jets in exchange for tackle Jason Smith, is the likely
starter this week at Chicago. Fisher did his best to dispel rumours that running
back Steven Jackson had been benched for spiking the ball in protest after he
was ruled short of the goal line on a third-down carry from the 1, but was held
out with a minor groin injury but could have returned in case rookie
Daryl Richardson faltered. “His groin was tight, we didnt want to risk further
injury,” Fisher said. “He could have come back in the game, and he was OK with
it. He understands this is a long season “When youre competing in a ballgame
like that, you dont want to set yourself back. Hes clearly not ruled out for
this game.” Fisher repeated his assertion from Sunday that Jackson had been
spiking the ball because the player thought hed scored. Jacksons touchdown move
is rolling the dice. “Im 100 per cent sure the reason he spiked the ball was
because youre allowed to spike the ball after you score a touchdown,” Fisher
said. “Listen, it didnt have anything to do with anything else but that.” Anquan Boldin Womens Jersey .  Montreal is
