Isaiah Pead injury: Rams believe running back tore his ACL

New, comments

The Rams believe their backup running back suffered a torn ACL on Saturday against the Packers.

The St. Louis Rams didn't suffer any injuries to their starters during their 21-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers, but one player will more than likely miss the rest of the season. Third year running back Isaiah Pead returned a kickoff return 33 yards before injuring himself. He had to be helped off the field by trainers. Head coach Jeff Fisher made it semi official after the game that third-year running back Isaiah Pead tore his ACL.

It was going to be a long road for Isaiah Pead to have meaningful snaps before the injury. When the Rams drafted Auburn running back Tre Mason in the third round this year, it was obvious that Isaiah Pead would more than likely either be cut from the Rams roster, or he would only make the team as a special teams player. With this injury, there's no chance that the Rams former second-round pick will remain on the active roster. Even if the Rams decide to give Pead a chance to make the team next year, both of his feet are basically out of the door.

Here's the play that more than likely ended Pead's career with the Rams.
