Rams center enjoys getting opportunity to play
ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams benched center Jason Brown last weekend and backup Tony Wragge will start again Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Brown did not even get on the field on the special teams in the 13-12 victory over Cleveland.
Wragge signed with St. Louis before the opener after being released by the San Francisco 49ers and has been a reserve in six games.
The offensive line helped Steven Jackson rush for 128 yards.
The Rams (2-7) also are last in the NFL in scoring at 12.6 points per game.
In nine games, the Rams have produced just 11 touchdowns.
Offensive tackle Jason Smith remained sidelined with his third concussion in three NFL seasons.
On the play where he got hurt, Smith had run over to the sideline to try tackling Dallas safety Abram Elam after he caused a fumble and was returning it.
Smith went for the tackle and Elam's leg whacked Smith across his helmet while Elam was running.

He had zero touchdowns, but at least he moved the chains and was able to make Big 10 All-Freshman...
Although they’re having a lousy season and have a lousy opponent coming to town, the St. Louis Rams have managed to sell enough tickets to lift the local TV blackout on Sunday against the Seahawks.

St. Louis Rams tackle Rodger Saffold suffered a "significant" chest injury Friday morning while lifting weights.
Will Brandon Lloyd make 300 receiving yards? Will the Rams eat Marshawn Lynch's dust like the Cowboys and the Ravens did? Will the Seahawks' defensive holes give the Rams a way in?
There are obvious matchups to watch in this game: how well our tackles protect against Chris Long, James Hall, and Robert Quinn (3 pretty good pass rushers); how well Lynch plays against the worst rush defense in the NFL; if our DE’s can finally get some sacks. Those have been covered. These are the 3 things I’ll be watching tomorrow.Seahawks Pass Game vs. The End ZoneSimply...
