ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jason Smith's third concussion in three NFL seasons means it's time for Adam Goldberg to step up. The veteran will be at right tackle for the Rams on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo says Smith had his neck and spine checked by a specialist earlier this week and no structural damage was found.

The third-year tackle was accidentally kicked in the head during the first quarter of Sunday's 34-7 loss at Dallas.

The 31-year old Goldberg is in his eighth season in the NFL. However, only three times has he started the majority of a season.
