    AP: Pace may miss "significant time" with knee injury

    Rams OT Pace sidelined indefinitely with knee injury
    Associated Press
    Sunday, November 16, 2008

    SAN FRANCISCO -- St. Louis left tackle Orlando Pace left the Rams' game against the San Francisco ***** in the first half Sunday with an injured ligament in his knee, which could sideline the seven-time Pro Bowl lineman for a significant time.

    St. Louis also lost right guard Richie Incognito with a strained rotator cuff just before halftime. Starting cornerback Ron Bartell was ruled out with a torn meniscus in his knee during the Rams' disastrous first half against the *****, who led 35-3 at halftime of their 35-16 victory. All three players will undergo MRI exams soon.

    "I'm not going to come to any conclusions until we get the MRI on them," Rams interim coach Jim Haslett said.

    Pace missed much of the previous two seasons with injuries, including all but one game in 2007 with a shoulder injury. He has missed just one of the Rams' 10 games this season, but he went to the locker room during the second quarter against San Francisco.

    Bartell, a fourth-year pro, started eight of the Rams' first 10 games this season. Incognito missed the Rams' final eight games last year with a dislocated kneecap.

    Pace was replaced by versatile backup Adam Goldberg, while Brett Romberg replaced Incognito.

    Linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa injured his ankle, and fellow linebacker Will Witherspoon hurt his leg. Haslett didn't think either injury was serious.

    This should be sad news but I find myeslf without any emotion. I wish him well and thanks for a wounderful career. But I think his time as a viable LT is over we have to look toward the future now.

    Andre Smith anybody?

    So they know it's an injured ligament? They'll probably do more test on it to make sure, but if that's the case, he could be out for the rest of the year.

    I by no means am any doctor or talent evaluator, but I sadly think it might be the last time we see Pace in horns. It was a great career, and he established himself as one of the best left tackles of all time. Definite first ballot hall of famer, but age catches up with everyone. Thanks Orlando for all the great memories.

    This could be sad for us Rams. Pace has tried his best in horns. I hope nothing but the best and I hope this isn't the last time we see him in horns.

    However, this supports the fact that he is injury prone.
