Atogwe done for the season?

Bad news for the St. Louis Rams. The team lost FS Oshiomogho Atogwe to a shoulder injury late in the first half of Sunday's loss to the Bears. Reports out of Rams Parks today look bleak for the team and the playmaking defensive back who has been one of the few highlights on that side of the ball for the Rams in recent seasons. Atogwe has what is being described as a serious shoulder injury, and may be done for the season.

According to the Rams official Twitter account, Atogwe and the Rams will get further medial opinions before reaching a decision on whether or not to shut him down for the season.

Ouch. Atogwe is playing under a franchise tag this season, and threatened to hold out last year to underscore his desire for a long term deal. If the league and the players don't reach a new labor agreement before the offseason (unlikely) he'll be a restricted free agent, meaning the Rams can hang onto him for a much smaller one year deal. Of course, going that route would more than likely produce some bad blood between the team and its star defensive back. Now, we'll wait and see how his injury affects that situation.

This season keeps getting worse.
