Dr. George Paletta, part of the team that put the pins in Kurt Warner’s broken finger, says the operation was a success. Paletta says doctors put two pins in Warner’s finger, and the pins will stay there for three weeks. During that time, Warner’s hand will remain in a splint. Once the pins are removed, Warner can begin rehab to regain full motion. That adds up to four to six weeks of missed playing time. The Rams say they don’t plan to sign a veteran quarterback to backup Trent Green while Warner is out. Joe Germaine will serve as backup, and the team will sign Marc Bulger, a rookie from West Virginia, to the practice squad. The Rams play in San Francisco this week. (Photo: Bill Greenblatt/UPI)
