Bulger hurting more than anticipated
By Mike Sando
ST. LOUIS -- Rams quarterback Marc Bulger might not play against the Seahawks in Week 12 after suffering multiple injuries against the Cardinals.
Bulger suffered a strain to what coach Steve Spagnuolo called his "groin-hamstring" area. Bulger also sustained a blow to the head. He will undergo tests for potential concussion Tuesday. Bulger also awoke Monday with swelling in his knee. He will under go an MRI exam on the knee this afternoon.
Also on the injury front, fullback Mike Karney is undergoing an MRI for a potential neck injury. Defensive end Leonard Little is undergoing an X-ray on his lower back. Right tackle Jason Smith is undergoing tests after suffering a potential concussion. Running back Steven Jackson has soreness in his lower back (a "muscle strain" was what Spagnuolo called it).
Bulger's injuries were most serious. Spagnuolo did not sound concerned about Jackson's ability to play in Week 12.
