Los Angeles Rams C Brian Allen out for the season; RT Rob Havenstein, WR Brandin Cooks to miss Week 11

The hits keep coming...

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Pittsburgh Steelers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams have been extremely fortunate over recent seasons regarding injuries. They’ve been able to avoid long-term injuries to key players, and it has ultimately played a huge role in their ability to succeed well into the postseason.

The same cannot be said for the 2019 season in which they’ve lost several players for multiple games or to injured reserve. Following Sunday’s Week 10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rams’ Head Coach Sean McVay provided updates with more bad news.

  • Center Brian Allen is out for the season (MCL)
  • Right tackle Rob Havenstein (meniscus) is out for (at least) Week 11
  • Defensive back Darious Williams (ankle) will also miss next Sunday
  • Wide receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion) will be out for the second straight game

This news couldn’t come at a worse time for a Rams’ offense that’s already struggling mightily. If the Rams opt to keep their line as they did in yesterday’s game, here is how it could (subject to change) look like in Week 11:

  • Left tackle: Andrew Whitworth
  • Left guard: Austin Corbett
  • Center: Austin Blythe
  • Right guard: Coleman Shelton
  • Right tackle: David Edwards

Again, the Rams’ offensive line has been a mess thus far this season. Losing two starters for multiple weeks is only going to magnify the problem.

The Rams get the Chicago Bears and EDGE Khalil Mack and in six days. A year ago, their defense kept the Rams to just six points with 180 passing yards for QB Jared Goff and 28 rushing yards for RB Todd Gurley.

Get ready, Rams fans...
