Rams | Faulk may be facing more surgery; TV in his near future?

Bernie Miklasz, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports a source in the St. Louis Rams front office told him Rams' RB Marshall Faulk (knee) may be facing another round of knee surgery in the near future. Faulk has told Michael Silver of, a close confidant, "I'm playing." If Faulk has the surgery, the Rams would most likely place him on Injured Reserve for the 2006 season, meaning that he'd sit out the year, with full pay. Faulk's agent, Rocky Arceneaux, has lined up a television job for Faulk. Faulk would be reunited with his former head coach, Dick Vermeil, as an analyst for the NFL Network. So if Faulk has the surgery and goes on IR, he'd benefit in three ways: He'll receive his full salary from the Rams; he'd be free to work in television; and he'd have the option for returning to the field in 2007. After taking a year off to let the knees rest and heal, perhaps Faulk will feel like giving football another try.
