ST. LOUIS -- This time last year, diminutive Tavon Austin could brag about never missing a practice, let alone a game. After a rookie season that featured a handful of brilliant highs mixed with stretches of low productivity and three weeks of downtime at the end with a high ankle sprain, the St. Louis Rams wide receiver came clean.

Tony Dungy 'wouldn't want to deal with' drafting Michael Sam
