The LA Rams placed linebacker Justin Hollins on injured reserve on Wednesday, following the decision to have surgery to repair his torn pectoral muscle. Per Stu Jackson of TheRams.com, Hollins is going to be out “for a little bit” according to head coach Sean McVay. The Rams know that for sure he will be required to miss at least three weeks while in IR, but the realistic timetable is much longer than that.
McVay did not rule out Hollins returning this season, however.
McVay said “we’ll see” when asked if second-year outside linebacker Terrell Lewis was on track to start against the Cardinals this week. Lewis had two total tackles and one QB hit in the Rams’ 34-24 win over the Bucs on Sunday while playing 34 snaps – ”by far his biggest workload” to date, according to McVay.
McVay is hopeful that outside linebacker Ogbonnia Okoronkwo will be able to return this week after missing the first three games with a shoulder injury. On offense, McVay is optimistic that Darrell Henderson will be able to return to face the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday after the running back was held out in Week 3 with a rib cartilage injury.
