Safety questionable for Monday night game

ST. LOUIS -- It might be another week before Jason Sehorn makes his debut with the St. Louis Rams.

Sehorn signed a one-year free agent deal in May after being released by the Giants in a salary cap move, but broke his left foot in the opening week of training camp. The Rams had him penciled in as the starting free safety Monday night game against the Atlanta Falcons following the team's bye week, but he was listed as questionable on Wednesday.

Coach Mike Martz said it might be too much to expect the oft-injured Sehorn, who resumed practicing two weeks ago, to play right away. He was expected to miss 10 weeks when he was hurt on July 27, and if he played against the Falcons it would be right on schedule.

"This is going to be some time to come back off the injury he had," Martz said. "It's not one of those things where you just say 'OK, it feels pretty good, I'm going to start this week,' and we go.

"He's got to get back into the flow of things and reads and coverages and run support and all those things and it just doesn't happen overnight."

Martz said he would make a decision on Sehorn at the end of the week. But for now Aeneas Williams, who had anticipated moving back to cornerback, will stay at free safety in practice.
