St. Louis Rams defensive tackle Michael Brockers was wearing a walking boot after suffering an ankle injury in Thursday night's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. His status for Week 1 is up in the air, but the team should know more after an MRI scheduled for Friday.
The hope here is that Brockers does not have a high ankle sprain, an injury Rams fans are intimately familiar with after Sam Bradford dealt with one last season. Early reports said that it was not a high ankle sprain.

@anthonystalter Thanks, but to clarify, not 100% on the sprain. Was told it wasn't believed to be, but will find out for sure tomorrow.
The Rams open the season in Detroit in just over a week. GM Les Snead said that finding defensive tackle help was a priority, and that will be especially true given the need to generate pressure against a high flying Lions offense.
