        Probably not for Andy King or Chris Dishman.

          I figure (if he has enough in the tank) Nutten will take Turley's spot. If reports are right and Turley goes on IR, then King will move to tackle and Nutten will get the vacated guard spot.
          The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                Why the hell couldn't he have done this at start of camp? He's one of the ones I've missed. I do wonder if he's in good enough shape to join us, but hell, can't hurt to try (ok, it can, but he's the one taking the risk [ok, we're at risk too]). If this really does happen, it'll be interesting.

                  Good experience. Good skills. Good man. I think we have a fine addition to our OL depth. // Welcome back, Tom! Now let's get it on!

                    Rams: Nutten keeping options open

                    Rams: Nutten keeping options open


                    Rams guard Tom Nutten declined to say on Wednesday whether his season-ending neck injury will also end his career. "Right now it's still so new that I'm dealing with it day by day," Nutten told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The 35 year-old lineman is nursing a bulging disc in his fifth vertebrae.

                    Nutten is doubtful to play, Larry Turner to get the start at gaurd

                    I want tom nutten back
                    by Guest
                    I want tom nutten back on the squad competing for the job at guard. I have a recurring picture in my head of nutten limping around on one leg giving us everything he had and then some at the end of last season and into the playoffs. His guts and determination is what being a ram is all about.

                    I am having a very tough time finding his rookie card, does anyone have an extra 1997 JOGO ##139 to sell or trade? I dont believe that he appears on any card as a ram, only that one card from his days in the cfl.

                    By Jim Thomas

                    Of the Post-Dispatch
                    08/21/2004


                    *
                    Had 31 other NFL teams called Tom Nutten about coming out of retirement, the answer would have been short and not so sweet.

                    "Obviously, I'd say 'hell, no,'" Nutten said Friday at Rams Park
                    But it wasn't any old team calling Nutten on Wednesday. It was the Rams, for whom he had played five seasons - including four as a starting left guard - and started two Super Bowls.

                    So how could he say "hell, no" to them?

                    "These are the guys I've bled with, I've sweated with," Nutten said.

                    He was sweating with them again Friday afternoon after his first practice with the club.

                    "I still have a hard time believing that I'm here," Nutten, 33, said. "I have a long way to go. But I made the commitment. I do believe that it's do-able. I'm here to help out in any way or shape I can."

                    Nutten signed with the New York Jets in March 2003 as an unrestricted free agent. But he didn't make it through training camp last summer. Slowed by an elbow injury, Nutten told Jets coach Herman Edwards on Aug. 15 last year that he was retiring. In the process, Nutten returned his Jets signing bonus of $600,000, which is more than the $535,000 base salary he will earn this season after signing a one-year deal with the Rams.

                    Over the past year, Nutten got in some family time with his wife and son in the Tampa, Fla., area - their permanent residence. But he kept his hand in football, too. This spring, Nutten returned to Germany, where he grew up, to work as an assistant coach for the Cologne Centurions of NFL Europe. He covered Super Bowl XXXVIII last season for German television. He was scheduled to leave today for Germany, where he was to run a youth football camp.

                    But then the Rams called.

                    "And then it happened quite quickly," Nutten said. "With my history, they had to do a couple of medical checkups, which apparently I passed, thank God."

                    Besides the elbow problems, Nutten had battled a nagging ankle problem for much of his career. But he feels fresh after the year off. He weighed in at about 280 pounds, 20 pounds lighter than his normal playing weight.

                    "Just to physically keep up, I definitely need about five or 10 pounds," Nutten said. "And obviously strength will come with that."

                    Eventually, Nutten will figure into the left guard mix with Chris Dishman, Andy King and perhaps Scott Tercero. But it's going to take awhile.

                    "Tommy's a ways away, obviously, from being ready to play," coach Mike Martz said Friday. "We'll see. When it is, it is."

                    nutten and his latest injury
                    by general counsel
                    Nutten was apparantly in street clothes yesterday, listed as questionable with some kind of neck injury. Given both the magnitude of this game and that fact that he is potentially the second toughest ram in the history of the franchise (with a slight nod to jack youngblood), i anticipate that if he is not hospitalized in intensive care when the game starts he will be ready to play if "Two Tons of Terror" Terrell needs a break or gets reinjured. There is no limit to what nutten has and will put on the line for the Horns and he has my ultimate respect. Certainly not as talented as tom mack, dennis harrah or even timmerman, he will go down as one of my all time favorite rams guards.

                    Ramming speed and good health to nutten and all,
