Rams tackle Smith gets limited reps in practice

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Jason Smith, recovering from a broken toe on his right foot, took limited repetitions for the first time in training camp.

Smith, the second pick in the 2009 draft, said Wednesday he wasn't sure when he'd be ready for full duty.

Rams cornerback Ron Bartell missed practice because of a sprained ankle sustained on Tuesday. Head coach Steve Spagnuolo had feared the injury would be serious, but X-rays were negative and Bartell was listed as day-to-day.

The Rams practiced for more than two hours in 100-degree heat. Spagnuolo cut the workout short by about 20 minutes and gave players two lengthy breaks.
