ST. LOUIS (AP) _ St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner will be sidelined 8-to-10 weeks with a broken pinkie on his throwing hand.

He will have surgery Tuesday.

The quarterback was injured in the first quarter of Sunday’s 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, which dropped St. Louis to 0-4. The Rams estimated Sunday he would be sidelined at least a month.

Two years ago, Warner had surgery on the same broken finger on his right hand and missed five games.

It will take longer to heal this time because it’s a compound fracture. Coach Mike Martz described the injury as a ``T-shaped break at the base of the finger.″

Martz said the Rams were close to signing a quarterback.
