ST. LOUIS, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- The NFL's St. Louis Rams canceled practice Thursday after an undisclosed number of swine flu cases were confirmed among several players.
"You know we sent them home," Spagnuolo told reporters. "We had a few more of those this morning. They went over to the doctor and we got some of those guys out of here. After that, I was advised by the doctors that it might be best to get everybody away from each other. It's really more of a precaution more than anything else. They all visited with the trainers. We're checking everybody."
He added that flu shots were made available to all players, but was not sure how many of them took advantage.
