Rams offensive line injuries start early

Somewhere there's a voodoo doll version of the St. Louis Rams offensive line that someone forgot to take the knife out of. There isn't a more cursed unit in all of professional sports. OT Jason Smith has a broken toe; Mark Setterstrom has an arm injury; Jacob Bell had his knee scoped; and this year's second round pick, Rodger Saffold, has a knee strain. Sam Bradford could have a  mighty different road to stardom with Adam Goldberg, John Greco, Phil Trautwein and Hank Fraley in front of him. 

The good news is that at least it's just OTAs, where the players don't have pads. They'll get the chance to regroup next month when the pads come out for camp. Let's hope the injury bug finds another place to go by then.

ESPN's John Clayton says Jason Smith is one of last year's rookies that needs to take a big leap forward this year. 

Could the Rams start Bradford behind a line missing this many starters? We're not the only ones asking that question.
