In an apparent changing of the guard, Darryl Ashmore practiced at right tackle with the first-string offense Monday in place of 19-year veteran Jackie Slater. "If the season started today, the starter would be Ashmore," said Jim Erkenbeck, offensive line coach. "But it could be Jackie tomorrow. There's really only one job locked up on the offensive line right now, and that's (center) Bern Brostek."

Jim Erkenbeck would yell, and people would wonder why he was whispering. "It was a chore to speak," he said. "I had to bring it up from the stomach." The chemotherapy medication hangs in a bag at Erkenbeck's side, and with the assistance of a tube that runs up his left arm, it is being delivered into his system intravenously to treat a "pre-cancer throat condition."

The Rams signed tackle Irv Eatman, who played last season for the New York Jets, to a three-year contract while maintaining first right of refusal once he becomes a free agent. The team made a quick dash for Eatman, 32, who played previously for UCLA, the USFL's Philadelphia Stars and the Kansas City Chiefs, after losing starting left tackle Gerald Perry to the Raiders earlier in the week. Although successful in their pursuit, oddly enough, they said they did not want to discuss it publicly.

Quarterback Chris Miller was released from a New Orleans hospital after at CAT scan revealed no serious damage from a concussion he suffered in the first quarter of the Rams' 37-34 loss to the Saints on Sunday. Coach Chuck Knox said Miller will undergo an MRI today as a precautionary measure in case the CAT scan missed anything. The team has a bye this week, and Miller and the rest of the Rams are off until Thursday.

Starting free safety Anthony Newman dislocated the little finger on his right hand while diving for a ball in practice. Strong safety Marquez Pope probably will be moved to Newman's position if Newman, listed as questionable, is unable to play Sunday against the New York Giants. Rookie Toby Wright would assume Pope's duties. Rookie Keith Lyle also figures to play in obvious passing situations.

Rookie Wayne Gandy didn't play a down at offensive tackle a week ago, but offensive line coach Jim Erkenbeck maintains Gandy is making progress. "The reason I didn't play him last week was because we were in the game and I did not want to disturb the meld of the group," Erkenbeck said. "I had it planned for him to go in the middle of the third quarter, but we were still in the game. Then near the end I didn't want to put him in to embarrass him."

Running backs Marcus Dupree and Buford McGee and center Doug Smith will head the Rams' list of unprotected players submitted by today's noon Plan B deadline, according to a team source. New Ram Coach Chuck Knox said the team was "leaning toward" protecting 37-year-old tackle Jackie Slater and still listening to trade offers. "Everybody's talking to everybody, everybody's trying to make a deal, see whether or not their 37th guy might be more valuable to you than their 37th guy," Knox said Friday.
