Terrell to Have Surgery
Last week, Terrell revealed he had fired his agent and hired a new one in an effort to convince the Rams he needed surgery. Said Linehan, "It is somewhat an experimental procedure, but hopefully it will be something that alleviates the problem. So, if he goes ahead and does that he'd obviously be done for the year, but we're going to look into that here in the next couple of days."
Pressed further, Linehan said, "The biggest issue is Claude has to decide who is going to do the surgery. There are a number of very good surgeons who can do this. We haven't gotten to that point yet, but I think that's certainly our best option at this point. It certainly doesn't feel like he can play with the wrist as it is now and this is a recommendation from three different specialists that this be something we try. That's pretty much what I think we decided that we're going to do. It's just a matter of deciding who it's going to be. Claude's got to decide that. It would be an IR (injured reserve) situation for sure."
In other injury issues:
*Wide receiver Torry Holt will have an MRI Monday on his bruised sternum. Linehan said it was precautionary and added, "(It's) just for piece of mind more than anything. It's fairly sore, but there's no reason other than to make sure there's nothing else in there with him."
*After saying all last week that wide receiver Isaac Bruce had "camp legs," Linehan finally admitted Saturday night that Bruce had injured his hamstring in practice last Wednesday. "His hamstring is probably about 80 percent," Linehan said. "He practiced about three-quarters speed most of the week. He says it doesn't feel very good. We actually went out and worked him out (during pregame), and he just felt like it was too tight. I didn't want to risk any further injury." Sunday, Linehan said Bruce is "day-to-day."
*Defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy underwent an MRI Sunday on his ankle, but results weren't immediately known. Kennedy injured his ankle in the first half against Kansas City, but came back and played. Said Linehan, "He looked OK today (Sunday) and moved around better than we thought. He actually went back in, as you probably saw, and played a little bit. He's pretty doubtful to be available for this week's game, but I don't think it looks too bad. I think we might have dodged a bullet there."
*Fullback Madison Hedgecock, sidelined by a high ankle sprain, did not play against Kansas City. "He's improving; straight line running only," Linehan said. "I'm not sure he's ready to do much radical cutting on that. Those high ankle sprains they get into that joint and the cutting is the issue, so we'll see what he can do this week."
