Rams | Faulk appears to be set for more surgery

Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams RB Marshall Faulk (knee) reportedly will undergo knee surgery next week, which most likely means he will miss the 2006 season. Faulk has had surgery on both knees this year, and one hasn't responded. He is able to run straight ahead but suffers swelling after he tries to make cuts. Jay Zygmunt, the Rams' president of football operations, said he talked with Faulk's agent Thursday, July 20, after Faulk had extensive medical examinations this week on the West Coast. Agent Rocky Arceneaux indicated Faulk had decided to have another operation, probably some time next week. "That was my understanding, that in all likelihood he was going to go ahead and schedule the surgery," Zygmunt said. "We don't know yet what the extent of it will be." First-year Rams head coach Scott Linehan had refused to discuss what step the team would take next if Faulk were unable to play.
