The St. Louis Rams and coach Jim Haslett announced today that Orlando Pace returned to practice and will start Sunday against the New England Patriots. Pace had a slight tear in his quad which was more serious than the strain that Steven Jackson has. This is huge news because Orlando Pace will be blocking the very athletic Richard Seymour and Adalius Thomas who have combined for 6 sacks this season. I think it is a big advantage that the Rams played the Dallas Cowboys last week. The Cowboys also play 3-4 on defense. The Rams should be use to the blocking schemes needed to be successful. Adam Goldberg had a great game last week in place of Pace.
Quotes from Stlouisrams.com:
Haslett declared Pace fit and ready to make the start this weekend against New England.
“Everything is good,” Pace said. “I went through the whole practice and felt pretty good.”
