    Updated: Danario Alexander tweaks knee, leaves practice

    BY JIM THOMAS St. Louis Sports, News, Jobs, Classifieds, Entertainment & Weather

    Rams WR Danario Alexander tweaked his left knee late in practice Friday and gingerly walked off the field without bending the leg. It is the same knee Alexander has had surgery on four times. His status for Sunday's game with Carolina is uncertain, but it didn't look promising.

    "He had that one look on his face I haven't seen in a while, probably since the Senior Bowl," wide receiver Mardy Gilyard said. "So I know something had gone bad with him."

    Alexander suffered a knee injury during Senior Bowl week practice in January, leading to cartilage damage and the fourth surgery. Gilyard also participated in the Senior Bowl.

    "I just pray it ain’t as bad as it seems," Gilyard said. "Cause he just didn’t look like himself. The smile wiped off his face."

    Alexander was listed as questionable for Sunday's home game with Carolina when the Rams' official injury report came out later in the day.

    In other injury news:

    -- Tackle Jason Smith did not practice Friday and has been officially listed with concussion-like symptoms. It is unlikely Smith will play Sunday, which would mark the first time this season the Rams would not have their entire starting offensive line together. Smith was listed as questionable, but journeyman Renardo Foster said after practice Friday that he would start at right tackle against the Panthers. Foster hasn't started an NFL regular-season game since 2007.

    -- Wearing a protective brace, running back Steven Jackson was limited in practice on Friday due to the broken finger on his left hand and his status is unknown for Sunday. Jackson has said he intends to play but coach Steve Spagnuolo has been more cautious when discussing Jackson's availability. Jackson was listed as questionable.

    Yikes! We've taken some hits on the offensive side of the ball this week. I'm not there yet, but in the back of my mind I'm seeing a familiar trend sneaking up to rear it's ugly head........

    I'm thinkin' this curse is the result of Shawgmunt breaking a promise and letting Ike go after he restructured his contract in good faith, with the intention that he would finish his career with and retire a Ram. You would think the football gods would let it go after getting rid of Shawgmunt and Linehan. Hopefully, with Ike's number retirement ceremony, it'll be vanquished.
