Rams Place OT Rodger Saffold on Injured Reserve
ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold has been placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. Rookie Kevin Hughes was promoted from the practice squad.
Both starting tackles will be out Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks with Jason Smith sidelined a fourth game by a concussion.
Saffold was a second round draft pick last year and was immediately plugged into the lineup at left tackle.
