Rams Lose CB Fletcher For Season
10:50pm UPDATE: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting Fletcher suffered a torn ACL and will need season-ending surgery to repair it. Coach Steve Spagnuolo is saying the injury to Mike Sims-Walker isn’t considered serious.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Rams cornerback Bradley Fletcher and receiver Mike Sims-Walker were both hurt Wednesday in the final practice before the bye week.
Fletcher was covering Sims-Walker on a pass play and landed awkwardly on his right knee. Sims-Walker hurt his shoulder on the play.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo says the extent of the injuries wasn’t known. Fletcher says he will get an MRI but the injury isn’t a bad one.
Defensive coordinator Ken Flajole pulled a groin demonstrating a play as a linebacker. He said: “I was trying to be a young guy and help on the pass drill and I realized I’m an old guy.”
The Rams (0-4) won’t play again until an Oct. 16 game at Green Bay.
