Victor Adeyanju Breaks Finger

Victor Adeyanju broke his middle finger in practice at Rams training camp on Sunday. The break must be pretty bad because Victor has been sent back to St. Louis on Monday to possibly have surgery to place metal pins into the finger to stabilize it. Some reports say Victor will miss at least four weeks and possibly all of the preseason games. Scott Linehan said once Victor is cleared to play he could get some work in with a club on his hand. I don't know about you but I think an NFL DE needs 100% of his hands to be effective, this could be a huge blow to Adeyanju. I heard Jim Haslett on a local radio station the other day state that Victor is the Rams best defensive lineman against the run. In addition I am tired of watching Pisa Tinoisamoa try to play with one arm in the NFL, it just does not work. The Rams seem to always have problems with depth, hopefully Victor will not be gone too long. C.J. Ah You is listed as the next in line to be the backup left defensive end. C.J. has zero tackles in the NFL. Lets wish Victor a speedy recovery!

In other St. Louis Rams injury news Chris Draft is suffering from back spasms and Oshiomogho Atogwe is hamstring issues.
