|Rams LB Diggs Out for Year with Pectoral Injury
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams outside linebacker Na'il Diggs is out for the rest of the season because of a torn pectoral muscle.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo said Monday that Diggs would undergo surgery, probably this week, and that the recovery time is five months. The 32-year-old Diggs had provided a veteran presence in the defense.
Another linebacker, Chris Chamberlain, played most of Sunday's 19-6 win over Arizona with an injured right wrist. Spagnuolo said Chamberlain was wearing a cast but thought he'd be able to play next week at New Orleans.
