St. Louis Rams Could Lose Jacob Bell For Several Weeks

More bad news on the injury front for the St. Louis Rams following yesterday's loss to the Washington Redskins. Starting guard Jacob Bell, tight end Michael Hoomanawanui and defensive tackle Gary Gibson all left the game with injuries yesterday. There return in week six could be in doubt too.

The most serious injury among those players is the hamstring injury suffered by Jacob Bell. According to reports, the hamstring injury is a major one that could keep Bell out of action for several weeks. Tony Wagge replaced Bell yesterday, and would most likely start for the Rams in Bell's place. Losing Bell is a blow for the Rams offensive line. Pass protection has been non-existent through four games, and Bell is the probably the best pass blocker of the bunch.

Oft-injured tight end Michael Hoomanawanui may have a concussion. He left the game early with a head injury after dropping a key pass. He will undergo concussion tests this week. Hoomanawanui has now missed more games to injury than he has played in two seasons. 

Gary Gibson returned to action, despite a hip injury. 

Keep an eye on Sam Bradford. He gutted it out despite no help from his line and receivers. He ended the game bleeding, the result of a scabbed over turf burn being opened up again. Sacked seven times yesterday, he's on pace to be taken down 72 times this season. It's almost impossible for a quarterback to take that many sacks, not to mention all the hits, and come away no worse for wear.
