ST. LOUIS (AP) -St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Orlando Pace left Sunday's game late in the first half with an apparent shoulder injury.
It was unclear how Pace, a seven-time Pro Bowler, was hurt with 1:45 to go and the Rams and Carolina Panthers tied at 7. He had been pass-blocking against the Panthers' Julius Peppers and held his shoulder at the end of the play, then went down to a knee.
Pace walked into the locker room for X-rays on his shoulder before the end of the half.
Pace was the No. 1 overall pick of the 1997 draft and is a veteran presence on a youthful offensive line. Last year he missed half of the season with a torn triceps muscle, ending his run of seven straight Pro Bowl appearances.
Adam Goldberg, who made two starts last year, replaced Pace at left tackle.
