The LA Rams saw two rookies suffer injuries this week that will require surgery, but so far it sounds as though neither will miss a lot of practice time. Fourth round defensive tackle Bobby Brown III has a thumb injury that necessitates surgery this week and per Jourdan Rodrigue, Rams head coach Sean McVay expects him to return to the field shortly thereafter.

Additionally, fourth round cornerback Robert Rochell has a wrist injury and will also have surgery this week. There was no timetable given for his return, but Rodrigue stated that she “didn’t get the impression that it will be a super long absence” for the rookie out of Central Arkansas.

While injuries are not ideal, these two rookies appear to have ones that won’t necessitate a long setback. Both could be competing for roles on the defense this season, though it is also fairly common for McVay to bring certain players along slowly.
