Jim Thomas reports for the Post-Dispatch St. Louis Rams CB Aeneas Williams (neck) was forced out of today's game and S Kim Herring (hip pointer) had to play when he left.

LG Tom Nutten (ankle) had to leave for a short period in the first half. He was replaced briefly by Frank Garcia, before returning late in the first half.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports St. Louis Rams OG Tom Nutten (ankle) hasn't practiced all week but head coach Mike Martz said he was "much improved" on Friday.

Wed, 14 Nov 2001 21:54:46 -0800

On Monday he practiced by partaking in some individual and scout team work. Starting DE Grant Wistrom (knee) is expected to return to action Sunday. Starting LB Mark Fields is also coming along after suffering a rib cage injury against the Eagles. He practiced Monday, and even though he was limited a bit, he'll be good to go by Sunday.

The Post-Dispatch reports St. Louis Rams DE Grant Wistrom (knee) and MLB London Fletcher (hamstring) were both limited in practice on Wednesday. Neither may play in Sunday's game as the team takes a cautious approach with both. Backup C Frank Garcia (toe) is doubtful to play.
Mon, 03 Sep 2001 22:18:45 -0700
The Post Dispatch reports St. Louis Rams Coach Mike Martz has not ruled out DE Grant Wistrom (knee) or MLB London Fletcher (hamstring) playing on Sunday, but he does not sound very optimistic. "It's getting to be a really big concern with both of those guys," Martz said Monday. Wistrom did limited work in team periods on Monday, when the Rams returned to practice after two days off. Fletcher sat out Monday's practice. Tyoka Jackson and Sean Moran worked in Wistrom's right end spot with the first-team defense. If Fletcher can't go, Don Davis will move to the middle and rookie Tommy Polley would take over at strongside linebacker. C Frank Garcia (toe) and TE Brandon Manumaleuna (ankle) also sat out Monday's practice.
Sun, 02 Sep 2001 03:28:42 -0700
The Post-Dispatch reports St. Louis Rams starting LB London Fletcher (hamstring), C Frank Garcia (toe), starting DE Grant Wistrom (knee), and rookie TE Brandon Manumaleuna (ankle) are questionable for the team's game on opening day against the Eagles. Two players who played Friday despite tight hamstrings, CB Jacoby Shepherd and WR Yo Murphy, are fine. G Cameron Spikes, who slightly injured his sternum Friday night, should also be fine.
Sat, 01 Sep 2001 08:01:36 -0700
The Post-Dispatch reports although several members of the St. Louis Rams, QB Kurt Warner, S Kim Herring, S Adam Archuleta, CB Aeneas Williams, LB Mark Fields, LB London Fletcher, C Frank Garcia, WR Francis St. Paul, WR Darrius Blevins and DE Grant Wistrom, sat out last night's pre-season game, the only injured suffered during the game was to CB Dre' Bly.

Mike Newell becomes the team's backup center. Martz announced Wednesday that safeties Kim Herring (hamstring) and Adam Archuleta (hamstring); LBs Mark Fields (thigh) and London Fletcher (hamstring); and CB Aeneas Williams (back) will join QB Kurt Warner (precautionary) in sitting out the Kansas City pre-season game this week.

According to their official website, the St. Louis Rams have signed free agent C Frank Garcia (Carolina) to a two-year deal. Financial terms have not been released.
Sat, 31 Mar 2001 00:23:47 -0800
Steve Reed reports for the Gaston Gazette the Carolina Panthers will now focus on the NFL Draft after a good opening to the free agent period. Panthers free agent OL Frank Garcia, Matt Campbell and Clarence Jones are not expected to be back in Carolina and Jones may even retire. The team has not pursued RB/KR Michael Bates as much as many expected. He's visited New England and drawn some interest from Cleveland. WR Patrick Jeffers (ACL) should be ready to go by training camp, although he'll take it slow. As previously reported, TE Wesley Walls (ACL) may not be ready quite as soon. The team may look at Rashard Anderson at both free safety and cornerback during mini-camp and then pick a position for him. If Deon Grant (hip) can't make it back, Anderson may stay at safety.
Tue, 20 Mar 2001 01:16:34 -0800
In a move that was totally expected given the recent signings of C Jeff Mitchell and G Kevin Donnalley, the Gaston Gazette reports Carolina Panthers coach George Seifert said the Panthers have informed free agent C Frank Garcia that he will not be back next season.
Sun, 11 Mar 2001 00:21:21 -0800
The Gaston Gazette reports free agent C Jeff Mitchell is expected to decide soon on where he will sign, after completing a visit with Carolina on Saturday. If Mitchell signs, starting C Frank Garcia's career in Carolina is expected to be over. The Panthers are still looking for a replacement for LB Lee Woodall, but it is not clear if they will bring in free agent LB Levon Kirkland for a visit. Earlier they had pursued free agent LB Dexter Coakley, but he re-signed with Dallas. As previously reported, the Panthers have also expressed interest in free agent G Frank Middleton.
Fri, 09 Mar 2001 22:24:40 -0800
As an update to a previous story, Len Pasquarelli reports for SportsLine.com Ravens free agent C Jeff Mitchell held off on re-signing with the Ravens so he could visit the Carolina Panthers this weekend. If the Panthers don't sign Mitchell, they might be one of the teams interested in free agent C Dermontti Dawson. Several teams are keeping an eye on Dawson and this hamstring situation. The Panthers are expected to lose C Frank Garcia in free agency.
Wed, 28 Feb 2001 01:15:34 -0800
As an update to previously reported stories, the Gaston Gazette reports three starting members of the Carolina Panters offensive line are expected to hit the open free agent market on Friday. The Panthers will not attempt to re-sign OC Frank Garcia, OLG Matt Campbell or OLT Clarence Jones before Friday. Those decisions are reportedly based more on the team's cap situation rather than the player's performance. Backup OL Bryan Stoltenberg is close to agreeing to a pay cut that could save the team more than $750,000 under the salary cap. It all adds up to the Panthers pursuing offensive linemen in free agency or the NFL Draft. The team could still re-sign Garcia, Campbell or Jones at a later date.
Mon, 26 Feb 2001 01:19:15 -0800
Pat Yasinskas reports in the Sporting News free agency could play havoc with the Panthers offensive line. Starters Matt Campbell, Frank Garcia and Clarence Jones are all free agents, but Campbell and Garcia could re-sign with the team after testing the market. The team currently plans to switch ORT Chris Terry to the left side. The team will then look for an inexpensive free agent to compete with Jeno James as the starting right tackle. ORG Jamar Nesbit could also move to center. RB is another position that could be addressed. Although coach George Seifert said Tim Biakabutuka's roster spot is safe, the team would like another back to compete with him in training camp. The team could potentially pursue Seattle RB Ricky Watters if he is released or via trade. FS Eugene Robinson isn't likely to be re-signed. The team may not be able to afford re-signing WR Isaac Byrd.
Sat, 24 Feb 2001 18:36:57 -0800
Len Pasquarelli reports for SportsLine.com the Atlanta Falcons are expected to pursue an offensive center during the off-season. In fact they auditioned former New York Giants OC Brian Williams, who has played just one season in the past three because of eye problems. One free agent who should see a lot of interest on the open market is Panthers OC Frank Garcia. Don't look for Garcia in Atlanta though because they prefer to either find some veteran who will sign a cheaper contract or use one of their youngsters at the position.
Fri, 15 Dec 2000 15:54:17 -0800
The Charlotte Observer reports Carolina Panthers officials have opened negotiations with S Mike Minter's agent, Craig Domann, about a new deal for the upcoming free agent. However, no deal is likely to be done anytime soon as the Panthers are already $10 million over the salary cap next year. On the offensive line, Frank Garcia, Matt Campbell and Clarence Jones are all able to leave via free agency, too. The team has hinted towards a potential overhaul on the offensive line, which has been horrible this year.
