St. Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz, who has missed the last 6 games due to a bacterial infection of the heart, mentioned over the Thanksgiving weekend that he felt good enough to come bakc yet this season. Team officials and doctors think otherwise.

Martz stepped down Oct. 24 on doctors' orders while suffering from endocarditis, a bacterial infection of the lining of the heart. Interim coach Joe Vitt has coached the team the last six games, going 3-3 heading into Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, and Shaw expects Vitt to finish out the year.

"I would be totally shocked if Mike got cleared," Shaw told the Associated Press Wednesday. "At the time he left it was pretty clear to him that he couldn't come back. But he's a coach and you get anxious."
