    Coakley's injuries threaten his career

    Coakley to have surgery

    ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Rams interim coach Joe Vitt said Monday that linebacker Dexter Coakley's left leg could threaten his career.

    Vitt said he talked to Coakley at length Sunday night after the player dislocated his ankle and broke his leg in the Rams' 24-9 loss to Washington. The coach said a metal plate will be placed in Coakley's leg for stability.

    "The only thing I told him is that I'd do everything I could humanly possible to make sure that wasn't his last snap yesterday," Vitt said. "I'll do everything I can to try to help him do whatever he wants with his career.

    "Hopefully, we'll be together somewhere. Special guy, special guy."

    The 33-year-old Coakley is in the first season of a five-year, $14.5 million US, free-agent contract with the Rams.

    Man, that's not the way you want to go out. But at least it sounds like Coakley has a future in coaching if he wants to stay in the game.
