    Nutten probably out for playoff game

    Rams offensive guard Tom Nutten, who sprained his left knee in Sunday's
    season finale, likely will not play in Saturday's playoff game against Seattle.

    Nutten, who has started six of the past seven games at left guard, was
    injured in the second half of Sunday's 32-29 overtime victory over the New York
    Jets.

    "I think Tom probably will not be available this week," coach Mike Martz
    said Wednesday.

    Rookie Larry Turner, who started at Arizona on Dec. 19, is the likely
    replacement at that position. Turner was a seventh-round pick this year and is
    one of four players to start at left guard this season.

    "He's had some experience and started for us and we're pleased with his
    progress," Martz said.

    Martz considered moving right tackle Blaine Saipaia to guard and reinserting
    Grant Williams, who lost his starting tackle job after 12 games due to injuries
    and ineffectiveness, at tackle. But he said it was less disruptive to use
    Turner at guard.

    Nutten, 33, came out of retirement in mid-August to rejoin the team and was
    inactive for six of the first eight games. He started for the Rams' Super Bowl
    teams in 1999 and 2001.

    There's a report on ESPN.com that Nutten might play. Apparently, he looked better than expected at practice.
