With week 12 coming and going, the Los Angeles Rams seemed to escape the game without any major injuries, and that includes veteran OLB Connor Barwin:

Barwin was injured during the game, and was seen wearing a sling post-game. Things could have been much worse obviously, so luckily for the Rams and Barwin, he escapes with probably the best case scenario.
Expect to see more of rookies Samson Ebukam and Ejuan Price, and second-year player Matt Longacre. Ebukam was the main beneficiary of the Barwin injury, and capitalized his time with his second career sack. The injury forced Robert Quinn to play 81% of snaps, whereas Longacre logged 49% of snaps, and 40% for Ebukam.

Look for OLB Ejuan Price to be active during Barwin’s absence.
