Fisher jokes he'll enter stadium via opposite tunnel

ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher says it's not his call whether the team continues to use pyrotechnic displays during player introductions.

But Fisher added jokingly that from now on he's going to enter the field at the Edward Jones Dome from the opposite tunnel.

The start of Sunday's game against the Steelers was delayed about 30 minutes by a small fire from sparks emitted during the display and a protracted cleanup effort.

No plays came close to the affected area around the 3 and 4-yard line near the north end zone.
