Rams | Faulk still struggling with his knee

Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams RB Marshall Faulk (knee) still is having significant knee problems as he tries to determine whether to attempt a 13th NFL season, his agent, Rocky Arceneaux, said Wednesday, July 19. "It's when he does a lot of those football things, like cutting, it just blows up," Arceneaux said. "And I'm talking about just light pounding. His doctor gave him some tests to do, and he wants to see how he responds with the swelling." Faulk had surgery on both knees earlier. One knee has responded well, but the other has been balky. More surgery might be necessary, said Arceneaux, who described Faulk's chances of playing in 2006 as "a coin toss." The Rams "are being very, very accommodating, very patient," Arceneaux said. "They know (Faulk is) fighting, and we certainly expect some determination will be made before training camp starts (next week). It's just a decision he can't rush." Zygmunt assured that the Rams wouldn't pressure Faulk for an answer.
