    Jason Smith still feeling effects of concussion

    Jason Smith still feeling effects of concussion

    Rookie right tackle Jason Smith still hasn’t recovered from the concussion that he sustained on Nov. 22.

    Smith failed to pass his baseline test again on Monday. He’ll see independent consultant, which now mandated by the NFL under the league’s concussion policy, on Tuesday.

    “A lot of concern,’’ Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said of Smith’s concussion. “Anybody we have in the program here who had a concussion is always a concern. A hard one to figure out. I do know all of the sudden they can be OK.’’

    Other injury news from Spagnuolo's press briefing on Monday:

    -- QB Marc Bulger will have an MRI on Friday to see how much the fracture in his shinbone has healed. Spagnuolo said Bulger still is on crutches.

    -- WR Donnie Avery had an MRI on Monday after having a subluxation of his shoulder. The results weren’t known.

    Avery was able to return to action against the Bears.

    “He did go back in with a brace and kind of gutted it out,’’ Spagnuolo said. “Hopefully, that’s a sign that he’ll be able to bounce back this week.’’

    -- Quarterback Kyle Boller is bothered by a thigh injury.

    -- FB Mike Karney will have another X-ray on his neck. Spagnuolo said he was hoping that Karney, who has missed two games, would be able to return to action this week.

    -- Rookie DT Dorell Scott had an MRI on his neck.

    -- LB David Vobora might get an X-ray on his hand.

    And in another news the Rams were allowed to sign an entirely new 53 man roster because everyone on the current team is injured.
