St. Louis Rams Injury Update

The St. Louis Rams went into their week 3 game against the Green Bay Packers relatively healthy, and with an 0-2 record. The Rams come out of that contest 0-3 and with a battered lineup. Laurent Robinson has fractured fibula which will require surgery. For Laurent his season is most likely over. James Butler has a 3rd degree MCL injury of the knee and will miss at least two weeks but mostly likely longer. Marc Bulger had the best news today as his rotator cuff is only bruised. If Marc can practice this week, there is a small shot he may be ready to play Sunday at San Francisco. Donnie Avery's ribs were not broken when he landed on the ball, he is sore but should be able to play Sunday. Now we will have to figure out what non-medical problem he is having with his hands. Several other starters are also nicked up. James Laurinaitis has a shoulder issue, both Ron Bartell and Gary Gibson have leg issues, David Vobara had a possible concussion and Jason Smith still has problems with his knee. Welcome to week 4 of the NFL where you can have 9 of your 22 starters banged up or out of action already. For an 0-3 Rams team with a ton of issues the bad news keeps piling up.
