PRO FOOTBALL REPORT : WEEKDAY UPDATE : RAMS : Linebacker Stams Out for Rest of Season

X-rays on inside linebacker Frank Stams’ injured right knee revealed some ligament damage, and he will miss the rest of the season. But Stams, who hurt the knee in the first half of Monday night’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers, appears to have escaped serious injury, Coach John Robinson said Tuesday. Robinson said Bruce Klostermann will play at Stams’ spot.

Tight end Damone Johnson, who reinjured his hamstring, and guard Tom Newberry, who sprained his left ankle. Robinson said both look doubtful for Sunday’s game at Atlanta.

Robinson said that he plans to play both Gaston Green and Cleveland Gary at tailback in the remaining two games of 1990, but that he wasn’t sure who would be the starter. Robinson also said that No. 1 pick Bern Brostek, who played left guard after Newberry went down, did an adequate job.
