Rams' Sims, Reynolds likely out with knee injuries

ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher said defensive end Eugene Sims and special teams ace Chase Reynolds have knee injuries that could sideline them for a few weeks.

Fisher said Monday the news was better than expected on both players, who were injured in the opening 34-31 overtime win against the Seattle Seahawks. The team had feared season-ending knee injuries.

Fisher said running back Tre Mason, who was among the game-day inactives with a hamstring injury, was a close call. Fisher said on his radio show Monday night that Mason had a ''very good chance'' of playing this week at Washington.

The coach added that cornerback Trumaine Johnson (concussion) was feeling better.
