ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Rams' struggling offensive line suffered two major losses in Sunday's 24-17 defeat at Green Bay -- right tackle Jackie Slater and center Bern Brostek.Slater is expected to sit out three weeks because of a slight tear in his triceps muscle, and Brostek will be sidelined two to four weeks because of a small broken bone in his right leg and a sprained right ankle.The loss of Slater means rookie Wayne Gandy, a first-round draft pick who has struggled so far, is expected to take over as the starting right tackle.
