The Rams' offensive line has picked right up where it left off early in the offseason as a particularly hot topic. A few months back, the big news was an alarmingly early rash of injuries to projected starting OTs Jason Smith (fractured toe) and rookie Rodger Saffold (knee) and starting OLG Jason Bell (knee), among others. With the injury situation now a lot less alarming — although Smith is still being closely monitored — the big news on the first day of training camp was the strong possibility that Smith, who was drafted high in the first round last year to presumably be the long-term starting left tackle, might start off the season at right tackle, with Saffold on the left side. "I don't see why not," Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo said of such a scenario. "You know, Jason started off that way (at right tackle) last year." Word is Saffold might have already proven he's a better pass blocker than Smith, who has been hindered by his inability to stay healthy.
