    Rams' Dahl looks like a go for Sunday

    Font Size: Default font size Larger font size Share Frequently when players suffer concussions, they blank out and forget parts of the game. That didn't happen to St. Louis Rams safety Craig Dahl two Sundays ago in Oakland. He remembers everything, including the fact that he couldn't see straight after a fourth-quarter collision with Raiders running back Darren McFadden.

    "I got up and my eyes were just real fuzzy," Dahl said. "I couldn't focus. You know, you try to blink, you try to concentrate real hard and maybe you snap out of it. Sometimes (your vision) just gets out of alignment once in a while. But it wasn't happening.

    "I distinctly remember hearing O.J. (Atogwe's) voice, and he goes: ‘You all right?' I said, ‘No.' He goes, ‘Get back down.' That's when I took the knee the second time. You knew it wasn't good."

    Dahl was done for the day in Oakland and missed last Sunday's game against Washington. But after being cleared by a neurologist on Tuesday, Dahl has been full-go in practice this week and is expected to start Sunday against Seattle.

    "He's a veteran guy that's been in our system for more than just a few games," defensive coordinator Ken Flajole said. "So we'll get his leadership, his know-how, his game experience back there. That'll make a big difference for us."

    Had Dahl not been cleared the Rams would be facing a real dilemma for the Seattle game. Because the only other healthy Rams safety is James Butler. Atogwe (thigh) and Darian Stewart (hamstring) continue to be sidelined with injuries.

    Even with the missed time, Dahl still ranks fourth on the team in tackles (15), with a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, a quarterback hit, and a quarterback pressure.
