Rams’ Warner Suffers Concussion
NEW ORLEANS (AP) _ St. Louis quarterback Kurt Warner left the Rams-New Orleans Saints game early in the third quarter with a mild concussion.
Warner was injured when hit helmet to helmet on the Rams’ first series of the quarter. He was sacked on the next play, and St. Louis settled for a 39-yard field goal that increased their lead to 13-7 over New Orleans.
When the Rams’ offense took the field again with 10:41 left in the quarter, Trent Green went in at quarterback and Warner went to the locker room to be examined.
Warner returned to the field minutes later, but rode an exercise bike on the sidelines while Green remained at quarterback.
Warner had completed 12 of 17 passes for 133 yards and a touchdown. He was intercepted once and sacked twice.
