Mark Clayton Injury: Rams Receiver Done For The Season

Wide receiver Mark Clayton is the latest Rams player to hit the injured reserve list.

The St. Louis Rams conducted a bit of business on Thanksgiving Day today. Wide receiver Mark Clayton was placed on the injured reserve list, a list stuffed with starters with six games left to play. Clayton's knee just didn't prove to be healthy after a nasty torn patellar tendon suffered against Detroit in week 5 last season. 

Clayton saw limited action over the last two games since being activated from the PUP list. The Rams placed Clayton on the PUP list to start the season, as he still recovered from his knee injury and resulting surgery. Obviously, he was never really healthy enough for football. At this point, you wonder if Clayton can play next year. 

Taking Clayton's place is Nick Miller, who the Rams released when they activated Clayton. Miller is an experienced return man, which could be helpful for a team that struggles with field position every week. The return game has suffered since the loss of Danny Amendola

Clayon's return was minimized once the Rams traded for Brandon Lloyd. Still, it's a bummer to lose yet another player.
