The Rams suffered a few injuries on Sunday, most notably to veteran tackle Andrew Whitworth.

The Los Angeles Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks 23-16 on Sunday, and while it was a highly impressive and important win, it wasn’t without a few downsides. Namely in the injury department, as is usually the case on game days.

Most notable was veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworth, who had to be carted off the field after suffering a knee injury. Whitworth was replaced by Joe Noteboom, and the team quickly declared him out for the remainder of the game.

The fear with a knee injury is always an ACL, and Whitworth is set to have an MRI on Monday. He posted on social media after the game ended, and while his tone was optimistic, it seemed to imply that the injury was serious.

Also suffering a knee injury was Taylor Rapp, who was ruled out of the game as well. There’s currently no update on his status.

The Rams also had an injury to a position that doesn’t usually suffer them: kicker. Kai Forbath suffered an ankle injury, and was questionable to return.

Hopefully the ankle doesn’t swell up on him, and he’s good to go for next week’s Monday Night Football showdown with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Elsewhere on the Rams, tight end Gerald Everett and offensive lineman David Edwards also suffered slight injuries. Both players came off the field for one snap, but were then able to return.

We’ll all be keeping our fingers crossed for all of the injured Rams, especially Whitworth. We’ll likely hove more info on the injuries soon.
