Found November 19, 2011 on Fox Sports:
St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold could be done for the season after injuring his chest during a bench press routine, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Saffold is likely to need surgery after an MRI confirmed he tore a pectoral muscle while working out Friday. Mark LeVoir will replace Saffold for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo remained philosophical. "Moving parts, even within the game, it happens," he said. "Coaches step up, get the next guy in there ready to go and away we go." LeVoir had stepped in for Saffold during last Sunday's 13-12 win against the Browns.
