Breathe, Los Angeles Rams fans. Tavon Austin was carted off from training camp today not due to a knee injury, but due to “cramping”:
Jeff Fisher says Tavon Austin will be fine - that he was just cramping. "No worries there."— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) August 1, 2016
Concerns sprung up quickly after reports began filtering in that Austin had been carted off due to a knee injury.
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.
