Two years ago as a rookie, Claude Terrell broke into the Rams' lineup with 10
starts at left guard. On Sunday against Dallas, he returns there as the Rams
continue their 2007 rendition of What's My Line?

With Mark Setterstrom out for the season with a knee injury, Terrell could
finish out the season at left guard after starting the past two contests at
right guard. With Terrell moving to the left side, Milford Brown is scheduled
to start at right guard against the Cowboys.

As a result, the Rams will have their fourth starting combination on the
offensive line in four games this season. All told, it will be the 22nd
starting combination up front for Marc Bulger as an NFL quarterback.

"It's just the nature of the game," Terrell said. "It's more opportunities now
for guys to step up and perform. It's unfortunate that we had some injuries.
But we've got guys that have played before in this league, and have starts
under their belt."

Slowed by a thigh bruise against San Francisco, Terrell says he is now healthy.

There was some early optimism that right guard Richie Incognito might return to
the starting lineup Sunday. But those hopes fade by the end of the week, with
Incognito officially listed as doubtful for Dallas.

"I don't want to say what my limitations are, but there are still a couple,"
Incognito said. "I'm just trying to overcome that and get back to full range of
motion and move around real well."

Incognito said he continues to experience pain in one part of the ankle. That's
one reason why he underwent an MRI exam Thursday. Team medical officials
thought it might be a bone bruise, but the MRI ruled that out.

"Everything came back positive," Incognito said. "No inflammation in the joint.
It's scarring up well. And it's feeling pretty good."

Just not good enough to play this week.

After being claimed off waivers Sept. 2 from New Orleans, running back Antonio
Pittman all but faded out of sight. Pittman, the former Ohio State star, was
inactive for the first three games of the regular season, and was limited to
scout team work on the practice field.

But because of Steven Jackson's groin injury, it looks like Pittman will dress
for his first NFL game Sunday. Pittman says he has a good grasp of the Rams'
offense, and even got a few carries with the regular offense in practice last
week.

"It's just a learning process," Pittman said. "I understood when they picked me
up how it was going to be. So I'm just going out there working hard and
continuing to improve my game every day in practice."

Does he know the plays?

"I have no problem running them all if you put me in there," he said.

Rams tight ends coach Judd Garrett will coach against older brothers John and
Jason on Sunday at Texas Stadium. Jason Garrett is the Cowboys' offensive
coordinator; John Garrett coaches Cowboys tight ends.

Sunday marks the first time the three Garrett brothers have been together at a
football game in more than 13 years. It will be a bittersweet family reunion
because Judd Garrett's wife Kathy died on Aug. 19.

Pittman's ready
