    Unhappy Turley reinjures his back

    Tackle undergoing tests on back
    R.B. FALLSTROM
    Associated Press


    MACOMB, Ill. - St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Kyle Turley reinjured his surgically repaired back in practice Saturday and the team scheduled tests to determine the extent of the problem.

    The team characterized the injury as a strain and tests were done at training camp rather than having Turley return to St. Louis. Turley, who left the field on a cart during the morning practice, has been trying to build his strength and regain pounds lost since the surgery and he had been seeing limited action in workouts.

    On Tuesday, the day Rams players reported to training camp, Martz downplayed doubts about Turley's readiness.

    "He looks like he's in terrific shape," Martz said then. "There's no reason why he won't be 100 percent in camp."

    Last year was Turley's first with the Rams and he started all 16 games.

    A few other players also are dealing with back issues. Defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy, the team's first-round pick last year, rode a stationary bicycle during both practices and safety Rich Coady and offensive guard Ryan Schau were out.

    Other minor injuries were sustained by linebacker Tommy Polley (sprained toe) and tight end Cam Cleeland (hamstring).

    Aside from Turley, Martz didn't appear overly concerned about any of the other players.

    "Unless it's a real serious injury, I just don't pay a heck of a lot of attention to it," Martz said. "Whoever shows up, we're going to practice and there's nothing you can do about the rest of the guys.

    "When you get them back, you get them back."

    Well all we can do is hope it is just a strain and nothing more serious. The last two seasons the injury bug has hit hard. Hopefully our luck will change this season.

    Yes, hope for the best. Get well soon. :upset: I mean it!

    KT is a definite tough guy, but an injury like that ... at this point, when we're just getting started for a season that hasn't even started and is so full of unknown factors ... no, we can't afford to be without this tackle!

    According to NFL.com, Turley himself said it was a potential career-ending injury....

    I agree. Let's hear some good news.....

    Even if Turley can't go, I don't think our season's anywhere close to over. Grant Williams could be a starter on a lot of teams in this league. He's no Turley, but he's no John St. Clair either.
