NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Los Angeles Rams CB Marcus Peters suffered a calf strain and could be out for the next 2-4 weeks:
#Rams CB Marcus Peters is believed to have suffered a calf strain that could put him out for 2-4 weeks, I’m told. His MRI to confirm is this morning, but the initial tests show no structural damage.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 24, 2018
Could be worse. The good news came last night when we learned tests on Peters’ Achilles game back negative. Rams fans were given a glimpse of what could have been when the Atlanta Falcons learned that S Ricardo Allen injured his Achilles and will miss the remainder of the season.
Now we’ll just have to track the progress.
Peters joins a CB Aqib Talib, LT Andrew Whitworth, ILB Mark Barron and K Greg Zuerlein as injured Rams on the mend. We’ll get press remarks from Head Coach Sean McVay updated on most of them later today with injury reports today, tomorrow and Wednesday heading into Thursday’s Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings.
At least for today, however, we should probably be grateful that Peters will be back at some point this season.
