cgator Posted September 23, 2003 Share Posted September 23, 2003 link Martz: Faulk will have knee surgery St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - More bad news for the St. Louis Rams. Head coach Mike Martz told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Monday that injured running back Marshall Faulk will have surgery to repair torn cartilage in his knee. Already sidelined four-to-six weeks with a fractured left hand, Faulk will not miss any additional time. Faulk took a helmet to the hand during a running play early in the third quarter of Sunday's 24-23 loss to Seattle. Doctors discovered two broken bones, but indicated Faulk will likely not need surgery on the hand. The 30-year-old Faulk had just 31 yards on 15 carries and caught one pass for six yards before leaving the contest. For the season, he has rushed for 116 yards and a touchdown on 42 attempts, while catching 12 passes for 66 yards. Faulk missed two full games and parts of six others last season because of injuries. He hasn't played a full campaign since 1999, his first year with the Rams. Lamar Gordon finished Sunday's contest at tailback and will likely start this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. 09/23 12:22:27 ET Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
