    Kennedy's foot has already healed--HES BACK!!!

    By Bill Coats

    Defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy returned from a surgeon's examination in North Carolina on Wednesday with good news: The broken bone in his right foot that was operated on in early August has healed, and he should be back earlier than the initial mid-November forecast.

    "He's been completely cleared to resume football activities," Rams coach Mike Martz said. "He's going to start running next week. He's two weeks away, probably, from having some contact, where he'll really to press and drive off that thing.

    "But it's healed very quickly, and he's much further along than you'd anticipate."

    Kennedy, the team's first-round draft choice last year, said: "Everything's good. Now it's just about get used to running and putting weight on it and fighting through the soreness."

    Martz praised Kennedy's conditioning during his layoff, in addition to his offseason work in the weight room.

    "He's really improved his strength remarkably," Martz said. "When he got injured, he was just beginning to learn how to play inside and do the things that we want him to do. So who knows what he'll do? It's up to him."

    I think both Kennedy and Fisher will prove to be valuable reinforcements to the defense.

    If both Kennedy and Fischer come back playing strong; it will be like making a midseason acquisition that gears you up for a playoff run.

    I will certainly feel better having Kennedy and Fisher back on the field.

    With their first pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select Orien Harris, Defensive Tackle, University of Miami.

    What's with you guys wanting JK back as if he is some proven player? He has been a dud since day one, and up to this point must be considered a wasted #1 pick. I say ho hum. I'd love to see him turn into a monster DT, but I ain't got me hopes up. His record, what little there is of it, is dismal. Look, if you guys are lookin to JK to save our DLine, then you should expect to hear a little man shout, "de plane, de plane..."

    It sounded like he was making real progress this offseason, and I'm anxious to see how that transfers to the field. Plus, I'd prefer having him spell Lewis or Pickett instead of Brian Howard at this point.

    That's a good point Nick, fair enough.
