Faulk feels better but still questionable

Saturday, October 20, 2001

ST. LOUIS -- Marshall Faulk didn't practice for the third straight day on Friday and he remains questionable with a bruised right knee for this week's game against the New York Jets.

Faulk, the NFL's MVP last year, was limited to work on a treadmill on Friday. Coach Mike Martz plans on going with backup Trung Canidate, the team's first-round draft pick last year, on Sunday.

But he left the door open just a bit, saying Faulk felt better than "even he had anticipated," and that the final determination would be made today.

"He'll let me know in the morning," Martz said. "He feels real good right now. His comment to me today was 'You know, I've played with this before, these types of injuries."'

Quarterback Kurt Warner said he'd be surprised if Faulk played on Sunday.

"I don't think he's going to be play," Warner said. "I don't expect him to be on the field.
