Fakir Brown Injured At Rams Training Camp

Fakir BrownThe St. Louis Rams have reported that Fakir Brown suffered a rotator cuff injury at training camp. With Brown getting suspended early in 2007 we certainly do not need this snow ball once again to start rolling down hill. Ron Bartell & Jonathon Wade need to be more consistent for the Rams not to rely heavy on Brown. Bartell and Wade have not been solid enough to prove they can be starters in the NFL. This may also provide a opportunity for Justin King to step up and try to win a nickel back role or even more. I believe it will be important for the Rams to have a 100% healthy Fakir Brown to start the 2008 NFL season.

The first semi-serious injury of this training camp has hit. Cornerback Fakhir Brown has a partial tear of his rotator cuff in his left shoulder and is expected to be out for two to three weeks. Brown did some running on the side but is likely to miss the first preseason game. Ron Bartell stepped into his spot in the starting lineup on Saturday afternoon

Cornerback Fakhir Brown was in full sight on the sideline, his left shoulder in a brace. Brown was hurt midway through Friday's opening practice, and an MRI exam Saturday disclosed a slight tear of his rotator cuff, coach Scott Linehan reported.

Brown, who won't need surgery, is likely to be sidelined two to three weeks. That means he'll sit out the Rams' first preseason game, Aug. 9 at Tennessee.
