    Pace is questionable

    ST. LOUIS -- Orlando Pace made a rapid return from a concussion to the St. Louis Rams' lineup last week.

    But the seven-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle was extremely limited in practice due to post-concussion syndrome on Wednesday and will again be listed as questionable for this week. Coach Scott Linehan said it'll be a day-to-day proposition this week and probably for many weeks to come.

    "This post-concussion syndrome is something that goes on and on and on for weeks," Linehan said. "We'll just keep an eye on it."

    Linehan said Pace wasn't specific about the symptoms.

    "He said his head's not quite right and he just doesn't feel quite right," Linehan said. "So we've got to be a little cautious with him as we have been."

    The Rams would go with the same alignment they used after Pace was injured in Week 2 if his symptoms do not subside. Left guard Todd Steussie moved to Pace's left tackle spot and Adam Goldberg moved to left guard.

    Richie Incognito moved to center from guard in Week 2 after center Andy McCollum was lost for the season with a knee injury.

    Pace was hurt on an extra-point attempt in the second quarter at San Francisco when the ***** overloaded his side and bowled him over. He landed hard on his head.

    Linehan said he didn't believe it would have been beneficial to hold Pace out last week.

    "He improved so much that he was cleared to go," Linehan said. "I'm not sure sitting him would have made him feel any better."

    But he said the team would now consider resting Pace if symptoms keep recurring.

    Call the life insurance agent for marc bulger if the Big Man cant play. We need the Big Man on the field. I have confidence he will answer the bell on game day. He can rest during the bye week.

    ramming speed to all

    Under normal circumstances I would agree. But you don't mess with a mans head. If the guy still has cob webs after a week and half, let him sit. Long term is more important health wise.

    We're 2-1 and it's a non-division game. The Lions haven't exactly been lights out this season. Sit him and try to get him ready for the Seahawks if he's still having symptoms.

    Yep, sit him. Concussions aren't something you mess with. I was surprised he played last week.
