  • Will Jason Smith be okay?

    I heard on the radio awhile ago that Jason Smith suffered a SERIOUS concussion injury and that it may affect his ability to play football for the rest of his career. Does anyone have any updates on him? How is he doing?

      The knee injury that sent center Jason Brown to the sideline late in the first half was diagnosed as a moderate sprain. "We'll see if we can't get him to Wednesday's practice, but we'll tread lightly on that one," Spagnuolo said.

      Dec 10 Smith (concussion) has still not passed the baseline neurological exam despite having taken it three times since his concussion three weeks ago, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

      Recommendation: Smith, the club's starting right tackle and No. 2 player taken in last year's draft, decided to see an independent neuro consultant on Tuesday and also got an MRI. Though no additional cause for concern was seen one has to wonder if Smith's year might come to an premature end because the club certainly doesn't want to take any chances with its future left tackle.

      Your announcement is unfounded. The above is what I was able to find.

        It was on ESPN radio 101.1 with DeMarco Farr and Randy Karrakar about a week ago.

            Jason Smith passes concussion tests

            St. Louis Rams tackle Jason Smith, who missed the Carolina game Oct. 31 after suffering a concussion in practice, has been cleared for full participation after passing neurological exams. He is expected to start at right tackle Sunday in San Francisco.

            "I'm feeling great," Smith said. "I'm happy to be cleared and be out there with the team. ... Concussions are a real serious matter."

            Also returning to practice Wednesday were cornerback Ron Bartell (shoulder/thigh), guard Adam Goldberg (illness), linebacker James Laurinaitis (knee) and linebacker David Vobora (hamstring).

            Those sidelined were wide receiver Danario Alexander (knee), safety James Butler (ankle), punter Donnie Jones (calf), fullback Brit Miller (calf) and tight end Fendi Onobun (back).

            Surprise! Rookie Tackle Jason Smith Returns To Practice

            Surprise! Rookie tackle Jason Smith returns to practice
            By Bill Coats
            St. Louis Post-Dispatch

            The St. Louis Rams had a surprise addition to their practice contingent Wednesday. Rookie tackle Jason Smith, out since suffering a concussion Nov. 22 vs. Arizona, was suited up and participated in some light drills. It had generally been assumed that Smith, the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, wouldn’t return to the field this season.

            But he passed his follow-up neuro exam and was cleared by the team’s doctors to begin rehab work.

            “It was a great relief to, No. 1, pass the test and then to be able to be around the team, be at practice and . . . be able to do something,” Smith said. “We took the test a couple of days ago, and I was able to pass it. We started taking it one day at a time from there, doing light workouts and seeing how the head reacts.”

            Neither Smith nor coach Steve Spagnuolo has ruled out the possibility of Smith playing Sunday when the ***** are in town. “We’re just taking it day to day, just light activity and progressing as the week goes,” Smith said. “We’ll see what happens this weekend.”

            All for now… more later.

            Smith's Injury not so bad?
            by Varg6
            From ESPN...

            Yesterday, the belief was that the St. Louis Rams could be without their top draft pick for up to a month, as Jason Smith had to leave the game on Sunday with what appeared to be torn cartilage in his knee, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

            "They're calling it a meniscus [cartilage] right now," coach Steve Spagnuolo told the paper after the game. "I'm not sure the extent of it."

            Both Smith and center Jason Brown had MRIs performed on Monday, and both are now listed as having knee sprains, which is much better than the torn meniscus situation.

            Even so, league sources have told the Post-Dispatch that Smith is likely to miss a game or two, which means Adam Goldberg is the likely starter this weekend for the Rams.
