DE Chris Long Returning Soon
Injury news somewhat encouraging for Rams. DE Chris Long does not have ACL or MCL damage. It's a hyperextension, may miss wk or 2.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) October 12, 2015
Well that's good news with Eugene Sims recently returned from his Week 1 knee injury himself.
G Rodger Saffold Undergoing Tests
Obviously having bye week helps. As for Saffold he injures right shoulder _ the one he injured in preseason, not one that underwent surgery— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) October 12, 2015
But Saffold undergoing more tests to make sure he doesn't need surgery on this one. He's questionable for Cleve (Oct. 25), Fisher says— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) October 12, 2015
We'll have to see how it pans out, but Saffold obviously doesn't have a great track record on injury rehabilitation...
RB Trey Watts Released...For Now
As expected, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Rams plan to bring RB Trey Watts back to practice squad after releasing him today.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) October 12, 2015
With Just Todd Gurley healthy, there's a glut at the RB position on the depth chart now. Bear in mind that while the Rams have Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham behind JTG, Gurley had 30 of the Rams' 35 designed runs on Sunday...
On Todd Gurley's workload, Fisher said he didn't plan for 30 carries for Gurley and acknowledged that's not sustainable moving forward.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) October 12, 2015
Rams plan to practice Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday this week. Fisher said some players will get rest this week, some will get "pushed."— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) October 12, 2015
Gurley among the players Fisher said will get some rest.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) October 12, 2015
More to come from Fisher's press conference.
