Rams' Smith healthy, but Goldberg to start

BY foxsports • October 16, 2009

Jason Smith is healthy again, but the No. 2 overall pick in the April draft won't start Sunday when the winless St. Louis Rams play at Jacksonville. Coach Steve Spagnuolo says Friday that Adam Goldberg will start at right tackle, though Smith will see some playing time against the Jaguars (2-3). The Rams (0-5) will try to snap a 15-game losing streak, the longest in the NFL. Smith sprained his left knee in the second quarter of a 9-7 loss at Washington on Sept. 20 and missed the next two games. He suited up for last week's 38-10 loss to Minnesota but was on the field for just two plays. Goldberg is a seven-year veteran known for his versatility - he started six games at four positions last season.
