Injured foes share space

ST. LOUIS - Rams fullback Paul Smith took himself and Frank Davis of the Lions out of Sunday's game busting the wedge on a kickoff, then the two shared a hospital room while being evaluated overnight.
Davis, a rookie guard, was carted off after the play to open the second half. Smith, who played for the Lions last season, eventually walked off while spitting blood.
Rams coach Scott Linehan said Smith had a concussion and was being evaluated by specialists for possible small fractures around his eyes.
"It wasn't bad enough they ended up knocking each other out, they had to spend the night together," Linehan said.
Davis, diagnosed with a neck injury, was released but Smith remained hospitalized Monday night, a day after the Rams beat Detroit 41-34.
PANTHERS: Linebacker Dan Morgan is not considering retirement despite a history of concussions, the latest of which has cost him three games this season. Morgan has not played since having what's believed to be his fifth concussion early in Carolina's opening loss to Atlanta Sept. 10.
REDSKINS: The team is miffed and puzzled over a 15-yard penalty issued for a big bear hug. Washington was flagged for excessive celebration after Santana Moss' first-quarter touchdown in Sunday's 36-30 victory over Jacksonville. After Moss scored, receiver Brandon Lloyd gave him a big hug from behind, lifting his teammate off the ground. The NFL has cracked down on celebrations this year, eliminating anything choreographed involving two or more players. "That goes on all the time," coach Joe Gibbs said.
SEAHAWKS: The team's charter plane made an emergency landing Monday morning to get medical care for Ray Rhodes, a special defensive assistant and former NFL head coach. Coach Mike Holmgren said the stop in Rapid City, S.D., was because Rhodes "felt faint." Rhodes was taken to a hospital in an ambulance. Rhodes had a stroke in September 2005 and missed that season's opener at Jacksonville. He then had what the team called a second "strokelike episode" Nov. 4 and was hospitalized overnight. He was Seattle's defensive coordinator at the time, but John Marshall took over Rhodes' game-day duties in the wake of last fall's incidents.
