|Rams Rookie Tackle Injures Back
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams rookie offensive tackle Rodger Saffold left practice early after injuring his back.
General manager Billy Devaney said Monday the team did not believe the injury was serious.
Saffold was the first pick of the second round and has been starting at left tackle. Saffold had been impressive enough that the team moved Jason Smith, the second overall pick last season, to the right side.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo said a player fell into Saffold's back.
