The Rams have placed OLT Rodger Saffold on injured reserve after the second-year lineman tore his pectoral muscle on Friday while lifting weights. Rookie OT Kevin Hughes was signed off the practice squad to take Saffold's roster spot.

Saffold started the first 25 games of his NFL career and was one of the few St. Louis players who had been injury-free early in the season. The team has been without ORT Jason Smith the past few weeks because of neck injuries.

Mark LeVoir is expected to start in Saffold's place on Sunday when the Rams take on the Seahawks.
