A.J. Green Injury: Green Leads List Of Injuries from Bengals Vs. Rams Game

New, comments

The most high profile injury from the St. Louis Rams 20-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals was rookie wide receiver A.J. Green. The Bengals receiver injured his shoulder on an incomplete pass from Andy Dalton. On that same play, Rams corner Rod Hood was flagged for a ridiculous pass interference call.

It's a grade 3 shoulder sprain for Green. He says that he will not miss the Bengals' last two games, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. You can see the play here.

For the Rams, linebacker Josh Hull suffered the most severe injury, an ankle injury. The extent of the injury is unknown at this time, but according to Ron Clements, Hull was in a walking boot after the game. He'll have an MRI tomorrow.

Rams cornerback Josh Gordy has an oblique injury. Darian Stewart hurt his back; Craig Dahl suffered a thigh bruise and Chris Chamberlain got poked in the eye.

Head coach Steve Spagnuolo will not have his usual Monday press conference tomorrow, as the team prepares for a short week. He'll speak to the press on Tuesday instead.

Speaking of A.J. Green, his 115 yards today put him over the 1,000-yard mark for the season. He's the first rookie receiver since Marques Colston in 2006 to top that mark in his debut season. I know the Rams had no chance of drafting him this year, but it was tough to watch him and not wonder how things might have been different if the Rams had made a real effort to upgrade at receiver since drafting Bradford. Having that kind of talent has been a big factor for Andy Dalton in his rookie season.
