Harris Could Start Sunday At Green Bay
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Down both starting cornerbacks, the St. Louis Rams could lean more on veteran Al Harris this week at Green Bay.

The 36-year-old Harris starred with the Packers from 2003-09. He has been playing in nickel and dime packages but was with the first string Monday as the winless Rams (0-4) returned from their bye.

The Rams will also give cornerback Rod Hood, signed in late September and coming off reconstructive knee surgery in June, his first playing time since 2009.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo has been reluctant to give Harris too much playing time thus far. He noted that the team is running out of options after losing Bradley Fletcher (knee) and Ron Bartell (neck) for the year.
