St. Louis Rams running back Marshall Faulk will have major reconstructive knee surgery and miss the 2006 season, a blow that could spell the end of his career.

Though coach Scott Linehan said at a news conference Friday that the 33-year-old Faulk wasn't ready to call it quits, retirement might be on the horizon.

"We were hoping for the best, but we've been planning for both scenarios," said Linehan, in his first year with the Rams. "I think reality is setting in for sure that potentially his career is winding down."

Faulk had been contemplating retirement during the offseason, before news of his latest surgery. He didn't attend the news conference, and his agent, Rocky Arceneaux, didn't return a phone call seeking comment.

Should have retired 2 seasons ago. He's like Jerry Rice, he can't let go of the game he loves.
