Morris, Jordan listed as doubtful vs. Rams; Pats down to third-down back Faulk

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Three of the New England Patriots' top four running backs probably will miss Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams.

Sammy Morris and LaMont Jordan were listed Friday as doubtful for the game, and Laurence Maroney is out for the season with a shoulder injury. That leaves Kevin Faulk, primarily a third-down back, rookie free agent BenJarvus Green-Ellis and fullback Heath Evans.

Morris rushed for a career-high 138 yards and one touchdown in the first half of Monday night's 41-7 win over the Denver Broncos, but missed the second half with a knee injury. Jordan missed the last two games with a calf injury.
