St. Louis Marshall Faulk, out for the season and facing reconstructive knee surgery that almost certainly will end his career, has joined the NFL Network as an analyst.
The St. Louis Rams' star running back, 33, is ninth on the career rushing list with 12,279 yards, 34 yards behind Jim Brown. But he had a career-low 292 yards rushing last year and made only one start, in the season finale when Steven Jackson was out with a hip pointer.
Faulk was the 2000 NFL Most Valuable Player. He won the Super Bowl after the 1999 season with the Rams. Faulk played for Indianapolis from 1994-98.
