Chandler out Rams to use Miller

October 04, 1994|By Los Angeles Times

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Quarterback Chris Miller said yesterday that his injured right shoulder still isn't 100 percent, but that apparently won't stop Los Angeles Rams coach Chuck Knox from starting him over a sound Tommy Maddox on Sunday at Green Bay.

Knox normally doesn't announce personnel decisions on Mondays, but with starter Chris Chandler out for the rest of the week with a sprained left ankle, he said he plans to turn the offense over to Miller.

"We expect Chris Miller to be 100 percent this week and certainly he knows our system and has been through training camp," Knox said.

Miller has sat out the past two games with sore ribs, a pinched nerve in his shoulder, and, as he revealed for the first time, a slightly separated right shoulder.

Maddox, 23, acquired in August from the Denver Broncos for a fourth-round draft choice, was shaky in his Rams debut Sunday, an 8-5 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
