Jason Smith Falls Down Rams' Depth Chart

Aug 15, 2012 4:38 PM EST

The Rams used the second overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft on Jason Smith, but he may not be their right offensive tackle this season.

Barry Richardson, who was signed to a one-year deal in May to serve as a backup, started the team's preseason game against the Colts on Sunday.

According to Jeff Fisher, the starting job is up for grabs.

"Any time you create a competitive situation, you want to be able to evaluate it fairly," Fisher said. "Hopefully, we'll be able to make a decision before too long."
