    Gordon out 4 weeks

    Martz updates players' conditions

    Associated Press


    MACOMB, Ill. - The Rams prepared Monday for their first exhibition game Thursday night against the Chicago Bears at the Edward Jones Dome.

    Rams coach Mike Martz provided an update on injured players, and how they're doing before the preseason begins.

    Martz said he still is not sure what the prognosis will be for veteran tackle Kyle Turley, who left camp last week seeking medical advice for a back strain.

    Turley left the field on a cart during a July 31 practice. He has been trying to build his strength since back surgery in March, after which he lost about 30 pounds and experienced atrophy in his right leg.

    "He's very frustrated," said Martz. "We've just got to get a conclusion medically in terms of a course of action that he needs to take. We're not there yet."

    Martz said third-year running back Lamar Gordon will probably have ankle surgery Tuesday, possibly due to a bone chip, and could be out four weeks.

    "Lamar has been complaining about his ankle, but nothing has showed up on the MRI or the X-rays," he said. "They would like to go in there and explore and see if they can't take care of that. He's been really consistent with this pain and in the same spot."

    Martz said offensive tackle Jeremy Phillips returned to St. Louis to get a scan done on his injured shoulder.

    The Rams will hold single afternoon practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. They will go through a brief workout early Thursday morning in Macomb before heading to St. Louis for the exhibition opener.

    I think this just validates those people who felt that with Jackson there was enough depth at RB and that Gordon should have been traded before his injury-prone tendencies resurfaced ...

    At this point I am wondering if Gordon will even make the cut.

    Gordon is nothing but a China doll. We should've got rid of him.

    I'm giving Gordon one last shot. If he doesn't produce this year, then cut him. More than likely, though, Jackson will replace him on the depth chart.

    Trade him to Miami and get Zgonina back. He's got a couple of years left in him.
