Bruce held out with heart abnormality

ST. LOUIS (June 3, 2005) -- St. Louis Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce was held out of minicamp due to an abnormality in a heart test given to all players.

"His physical showed just a slight abnormality," coach Mike Martz said. "He had a little glitch."

After the first of two workouts, Bruce said he believed the test was a mistake. He hoped to undergo a second test later in the day, although Martz said a specialist who normally administers such tests was out of town until June 7, which would sideline Bruce for the remainder of the three-day camp.

"Something funny showed up on the EKG, that's all," Bruce said. "I was a little shocked. I'm thinking something's wrong witih the machine, not anything wrong with me."

The 32-year-old, 12-year veteran was second on the team last season with 89 catches for 1,292 yards and six touchdowns.
