Wide receiver undergoes appendectomy

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams wide receiver Mike Furrey will miss at least one game after undergoing an appendectomy Tuesday night.

Furrey, who made the team as an undrafted free agent, has two catches for 14 yards in four games as the fourth receiver. Rookie Shaun McDonald, a fourth-round pick this year who's been hampered by a thumb injury, will move up to that slot.

Coach Mike Martz said another rookie, Kevin Curtis, could make his NFL debut Sunday against the Packers; he was listed as questionable. Curtis won the third wide receiver job before breaking his leg in the preseason.

Strong safety Adam Archuleta also was questionable with a sprained left ankle. Rich Coady is the backup at that position.

"I would suspect we would not have Adam," Martz said. "It's one of those things where you just kind of have to wait until the swelling goes down and it kind of clears up a little bit."
