Los Angeles Rams WR Tavon Austin was taken off of the field during day two of training camp after an apparent knee injury:

No word from the team as to the degree of injury. Certainly, Wolfe, as a member of NFL Media organized by the league, helps suggest a level of hopefulness here.
Austin is headed into his fourth NFL season after the Rams traded up to select him with the eighth overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Austin hit career highs in 2015 in targets (87), receptions (52), receiving yards (473), receiving TDs (5), rushing attempts (52), rushing yards (434) and rushing TDs (4).
These reports come as part of the Rams’ first training camp after relocating to Los Angeles after more than two decades in St. Louis.
We’ll continue to monitor wire reports regarding Austin’s knee and all other news coming out of the 2016 Los Angeles Rams’ Training Camp.
