Bradley Fletcher Injury: Rams CB Suffers Potential Serious Knee Injury

It would be hard to imagine things getting worse for the St. Louis Rams this season. The season may have really taken a turn for the worse today. Starting cornerback Bradley Fletcher injured his knee in practice, and it could be serious.

Fletcher got tangled up with wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker in a 1-on-1 drill. He suffered a knee injury, and the Rams didn't even try to put a positive spin on it in this tweet:

Some potentially bad news on injury front: CB Bradley Fletcher suffered a knee injury in 1 on 1 drills. Will have MRI to check it out.

The Rams pass defense is already suffering without Ron Bartell, who was lost for the season with a fractured vertebrae in his neck in week one. Filling in for Bartell, Justin King got famously burned by the Ravens in week three, before faring a little better against the Redskins last week. 

The Rams added veteran free agent CB Rod Hood to replace Bartell. Now, Hood and King may be the Rams starting cornerbacker, period. 

If Fletcher is out for any significant period of time, the Rams will most certainly have to make another move to add a corner. Second-year player Marquis Johnson is eligible to come off the PUP list after week six, which would be of some help. 

Keep an eye on this situation. At least the Rams don't play the Packers next...oh wait.
