Rams could lose G Jacob Bell for the season

The St. Louis Rams injury report can't get any worse can it? Oh yes it can, and it has after the brutal beat down administered by the Tennessee Titans and Jeff Fisher's mullet this weekend. The offensive line, already missing starters, took the biggest hit, with LG Jacob Bell suffering a torn hamstring muscle, an injury that could keep him out for the rest of the season.

Yikes. Bell has really stepped up his play this season, and he'll be missed sorely. This might be an easier blow to suffer if Jason Smith were healthy and starting at RT, because that would allow Goldberg, whose a better guard than tackle, to play guard as opposed to being forced to play tackle for Smith. Bell's injury could also have ramifications on the RIchie Incognito situation, which Spagnuolo did not address today citing his desire to talk to the hot headed guard first.

Jason Smith has not taken the neoro test again, so no change in his status yet. The Rams official Twitter feed says the team has all options on the table, including ending the rookie's season to let him recover...not the preferred option, but probably the best.

Linebackers David Vobora and Paris Lenon each had an MRI, but no results yet.

Why does this team consistently deal with so many injuries? This isn't just turf-related stuff either. I continue to be of the mind that because we're so talent deprived, the big names step up, carry more load and suffer the consequences because of the increased exposure. Or maybe we just have really cut rate trainers.
