Rams rookie offensive tackle has knee sprain

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Jason Smith, the second overall pick in this year's draft, has a sprained knee and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's home game against Green Bay.

An MRI exam revealed the extent of the injury, which coach Steve Spagnuolo said Monday would not require surgery. The Rams lost 9-7 at Washington on Sunday.

Adam Goldberg finished the game at Smith's position and would likely replace him as the starter.

Center Jason Brown also has a knee sprain but Spagnuolo said Brown was day to day. Offensive lineman John Greco (wrist) was set to return this week after missing the first two games.
