St. Louis Rams rookie wide receiver Greg Salas had really started to turn his season around after a rough start. Salas was carted off the field in fourth quarter of the Rams loss to the Arizona Cardinals today. According to the team, he broke a bone in his leg - reported to be his fibula by Ron Clements of CBSSports.com - and will miss the season.
Salas is the second slot receiver to land on IR for St. Louis. Danny Amendola was lost for the season with a dislocated elbow in week 1, an injury further aggravated after he rushed back to practice.
It's a bad deal for Salas who really started to emerge in recent weeks for the Rams. Since the bye, Salas had 23 receptions for 216 yards in four games. If you recall, Salas made some ugly drops early in the season, getting benched for two games in weeks 3 and 4.
Mark Clayton should rejoin the Rams next week from the PUP list.
Austin Pettis could be next in line to assume the slot role for the Rams.
The status of tight end Lance Kendricks is unknown after he suffered a sprained left foot. He will have an MRI on what's becoming Monday, Bloody Monday for the Rams.
