Rams | Linehan wants Faulk to decide future soon

Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports whether St. Louis Rams RB Marshall Faulk (knees) figures into the Rams' plans for the 2006 season needs to be determined soon, head coach Scott Linehan said Friday, June 9. For now, though, the decision rests solely with Faulk, the new head coach added. "Only he knows how he feels, his own body," Linehan said. "Guys that have played at such a high level for so many years and have taken so many hits, sometimes it starts to wear you down a little bit. And he's trying to figure out how he can manage it." Asked if he'd prefer that Faulk at least attend meetings and observe from the sideline, Linehan said: "On one hand, yes. But on the other hand, he's dealing with something bigger than meetings and that. I think he's coming to terms with whether he can do it." Linehan also emphasized that his relationship with Faulk is solid.
