ST. LOUIS (AP) -- After missing most of last season with a broken leg, Randy McMichael is eager to show the St. Louis Rams he can once again be an elite tight end.
The Rams will hold their first preseason scrimmage Friday night at Lindenwood University in nearby St. Charles, and McMichael says he's looking forward to his first game-type action in 10 months.
McMichael suffered a broken tibia and torn ligament in his right leg in a 31-14 loss to Buffalo on Sept. 28, and missed the rest of the season.
The Rams are expecting big things from McMichael and hope he returns to the production he had while playing for the Dolphins. He caught 195 passes from 2004 through 2006, but had just 39 for St. Louis in 2007 and 11 before getting hurt last season.
