Rams' Faulk expected to play another year

ST. LOUIS (April ) -- Rams new coach Scott Linehan expects Marshall Faulk to play this season.

Faulk is missing the St. Louis Rams' minicamp this weekend while recovering from offseason surgery on both knees. Linehan said that Faulk probably won't be ready until June.

But he said Faulk, who considered retiring after rushing for a career-low 292 yards last year, told him he'd definitely return as the backup running back behind Steven Jackson.

"He said he was more hungry now than he has been in a couple of years," Linehan said. "He was adamant about his commitment to next year."

Faulk made his only start last year in the final game. He has 12,279 career yards rushing, 34 behind Jim Brown for eighth place in NFL history.
