Center back on field after first absence

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- No matter how sorry the St. Louis Rams' season, Jason Brown wants the team to know they can always count on him.

Not just on game day, either.

Brown expects to make his 56th consecutive start on Sunday at Chicago. He'd never missed a practice in his career until Wednesday, when he was held out as a precaution after spraining his right knee in last week's loss to the Seahawks, and was back on the field on Thursday.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo has been impressed with Brown's durability, and his unwavering dedication during a 1-10 season.
