    Re: Minicamp Injury Update on Jason Smith's toe, add Setterstrom to the walking wound

    Regarding Smith, I'm going to file this in the "could have been much worse" file. A stress fracture to the toe should require a bit of time to heal, but otherwise should not result in any lingering issues. I was more concerned that we would receive a report of a "soft tissue" injury like the dreaded "turf toe" that hindered Leonard Little for an extended period of time.

    Truth be told, unless an injury is of the type that could impact a player's ability to play in the regular season (torn ACL, ruptured achilles, etc.), I'd just as soon not even hear about it now.

    According to coach Steve Spagnuolo, it looked worse than it probably was. Spagnuolo said that Smith tweaked a toe and that the injury appeared to be minor. When he walked off the field after practice, Smith, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2009 draft, was limping only slightly.
    So much for Spags report on this. Hope it heals, by game 1 we really need this guy.

    In the future then, I'll try to include the phrase "Av, don't look!" in the title of reports that don't meet the description of those you mentioned.

    Shame on the Rams for hiring a coach who lacks X-ray vision.

    Smith really needed as much time as possible to make a smooth transition back to the left side, in my opinion. I guess it wouldn't be a Rams offseason though, without some high profile player battling through a lingering injury.

    Grrrrrr!

    Okay, sure, it seems "every year" is the same story at this point: injuries to nag about too early. And even though we all know this occurs with most teams during MC, it's still a pesky piece of news.

    I trust Smith will be just fine (wishful thinking). Setterstrom, he'd better be.

    Re: Minicamp Injury Update on Jason Smith's toe, add Setterstrom to the walking wound

    Just as Av said, this is something that could have been much worse. Not having him in the rest of minicamp and OTA's hurts, but as not nearly as much as it could.

    I assume he'll be back for training camp and that's where we really need him.
    I believe!
