Justin undergoes surgery on injured knee

9/8/2001

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams reserve quarterback Paul Justin
underwent surgery to repair a torn knee ligament suffered Aug. 6
against Miami.

Justin, on injured reserve since Aug. 9, will require at least
six months to recover from Friday's surgery on the torn anterior
cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Justin, 33, was active for five games last year while Kurt
Warner was sidelined with a broken finger. He also was the backup
quarterback during the Rams' 1999 Super Bowl championship season.

This preseason, Justin was 1-for-2 for 23 yards and was the
Rams' third-string quarterback when injured.
