Rams, Lions player share hospital room

Tuesday, October 3, 2006

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams fullback Paul Smith took himself and the Lions' Frank Davis out of Sunday's game busting the wedge on a kickoff, then the two shared a hospital room while being evaluated overnight.

Davis was carted off the field after the play to open the second half, and Smith eventually walked off while spitting blood. Coach Scott Linehan said Smith had a concussion and was being evaluated by specialists for possible small fractures around his eyes.

"It wasn't bad enough they ended up knocking each other out, they had to spend the night together," Linehan said.

Neither player appeared to be seriously injured.
