The Rams were dealt a setback Tuesday upon learning that starting guard Tom Newberry will remain sidelined for a few more weeks with a knee injury. Coach Chuck Knox said he also will keep starting tackle Jackie Slater sidelined for Sunday's game at New Orleans. Slater has been bothered by a torn chest muscle. "It's not good news," Knox said of Newberry's latest exams. "And we have a lot of other people with bumps and bruises, which means we won't be able to go in full pads (today)."

Kevin Greene, unsatisfied with his role with the Rams, has found happiness and a three-year, $5.25-million contract in Pittsburgh. "He's a proven pass rusher," Pittsburgh Coach Bill Cowher said. "Statistically, when he's had his big numbers it was in a defense similar to what we can provide him. "He also wanted to be here, and I think that played a big role into getting this done."

The linebacker situation got worse in Buffalo and better in Phoenix on Monday. The Bills, who are missing starter Shane Conlan because of a holdout, lost regular Darryl Talley indefinitely because of arthroscopic knee surgery. Meanwhile, Phoenix reached contract terms with starter Anthony Bell, a four-year starter who had a career-high 115 tackles last season. Bell held out for 29 days. Talley damaged cartilage in his right knee during Buffalo's 24-13 loss to Detroit on Friday.

Ram running back Jerome Bettis ran at full speed in practice Monday and reported himself to be 100% and ready to play, if needed, against Green Bay Sunday. "The ankle is fine," Bettis said. "No pain. No problems. I pushed myself hard just to make sure I was ready. I ran, I cut and I drove off my ankle and everything was fine. At least now I've put myself in position to be available." Bettis ran eight times for 29 yards in exhibition play before the injury.

Linebacker Shane Conlan underwent a Magnetic Resonance Imaging test on his injured hip Tuesday, and Coach Chuck Knox said that the results were negative. "He ought to be ready in a couple of days," Knox said. Wide receiver Todd Kinchen, who practiced for the first time Monday after undergoing knee surgery, extended himself further Tuesday without apparent problem. Wide receiver Phillip Bobo, however, was unable to work out after his knee reacted unfavorably to Monday's practice.

Backup quarterback Chris Chandler sat out practice again because of a sore back and said his chances for playing Saturday against the Washington Redskins don't look good. Tommy Maddox, who hasn't played in four games, worked as Chris Miller's backup for the second consecutive day and will serve in that capacity Saturday if Chandler isn't ready. Chandler started against Chicago before leaving in the second half because of the back injury.
