Los Angeles Rams ILB Alec Ogletree: Elbow injury not serious

The QB of the Rams defense expects to play next weekend

Los Angeles Rams ILB Alec Ogletree had himself a day - albeit a shortened one. Shortly after scoring a touchdown on an interception, he could be found with his left arm in a sling with what has been tentatively diagnosed as a hyper-extended elbow.

I’m not sure what the typical recovery period for a hyper-extended elbow is, but I’d be pretty confident in saying that it’s longer than 6 days. But then again, we all saw what J.T. Barrett could do a week after knee surgery. Modern medicine is amazing.....

I’m sure the doctors will have their own opinion after the inevitable x-rays and MRIs tomorrow morning. Here’s hoping for positive results with the Philadelphia Eagles on the horizon next week.

Bryce Hager stepped in and played adequately in Ogletree’s absence today, and will get the call as primary signal caller next week in the event that ‘Tree isn’t able to suit up.
