Down both starting cornerbacks, the St. Louis Rams could lean more on veteran Al Harris this week at Green Bay.
The 36-year-old Harris starred with the Packers from 2003-09. He has been playing in nickel and dime packages but was with the first string Monday as the winless Rams (0-4) returned from their bye.
The Rams will also give cornerback Rod Hood, signed in late September and coming off reconstructive knee surgery in June, his first playing time since 2009.

As a St. Louis Rams fan I was used to mediocrity in the eighties and nineties, I was used to ending up behind the Niners in the division. I will forever dismiss Jim Rome because of his “Chris Everett” thing – let’s see that puss take a snap!? I suppose Everett’s reaction put that slang-juggling hack Rome on the radar – but no respect due. Rome should send Easter cards...
The banged-up Rams might have to turn to 36-year-old Al Harris, a two-time Pro Bowler with Green Bay. Is Harris washed up? ''I really don't know where that came from. But that's definitely not the case. I'm ready to contribute where they need me.''
