    Chamberlain out for 6-8 weeks and other injury updates

    ST. LOUIS -- Rams linebacker Chris Chamberlain will be sidelined six to eight weeks with turf toe on his left foot, an injury that left him wearing a cast.



    Chamberlain, one of the team's top special-teams players, was hurt during the first half of Sunday's season-opening 17-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said Monday that Chamberlain, who already has seen a foot specialist, might be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

    "They call it turf toe -- it's a little bit more than that," Spagnuolo said. "We've got a decision to make there."

    Cornerback Kevin Dockery has a "significant" left-hamstring strain and might not play next week at Oakland, Spagnuolo said. Rookie tight end Michael Hoomanawanui has a high left ankle sprain that could sideline him a while.

    Wide receiver Laurent Robinson was in a walking cast on his right leg after aggravating an ankle injury, although Spagnuolo said the MRI looked "pretty normal." Robinson caught a touchdown pass on the final play of the first half to tie the score, 10-10.

    Running back Steven Jackson underwent an MRI exam on an inflamed right knee, but Spagnuolo believed the veteran would be fine.

    Robinson just cannot stay healthy. It's really a shame.

    eh, Doesn't sound serious he should be ready by next week. Really just sounds precautionary to me.

    OK, guys, I'm going to remind you to suck it up and get on the field.

    Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but I don't like the sound of inflamed right knee. At least it's not inflamed back.

    Crap. That's what I was afraid of, the way he limped off.

    That is very troubling, hope it is not something that will become a problem. Not much behind him.

    He's with the Dolphins, and I doubt he wants to come back here after that release.
