According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Caplan, the St. Louis Rams may be bracing themselves for some bad news as it pertains to their most tenured offensive lineman, Rodger Saffold.
#Rams RG Rodger Saffold (right shoulder) is not expected to return to playing field soon, if at all this season, source said.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) October 14, 2015
In last week’s game against the Packers, on the Nick Foles interception that was returned for a touchdown, Saffold re-injured the shoulder that he’d previously hurt in the preseason. This injury is to the opposite shoulder of the one that Saffold had surgically repaired during the offseason.
After practice yesterday, head coach Jeff Fisher was pretty concise about whether or not there was any update on Saffold’s status. "Nothing, no" he said.
Saffold is already listed as questionable for the Rams’ Week 7 matchup against the Browns. We’ll continue to monitor his injury status.
Get well, Big Saff.

Update [7:44pm ET]:
On if there was any update on Saffold’s injury in today’s post-practice press conference, Jeff Fisher said:
"No, we still have nothing new to report. We’re still doing some tests. It’s that second opinion type thing you go through."
