Ron Bartell Injures Ankle In Practice

Bill Coats reported tonight that Ron Bartell was taken off the field on a cart after injuring his right ankle. Bartell is to be taken to the hospital for x-rays. This is very bad news for a Rams secondary that is already considered thin and not of top caliber. Recently Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports ranked the Rams secondary 26th out of 32 teams, while Bleacher Report has them ranked 32nd.

Ron Bartell along with James Butler & Oshiomogho Atogwe are all 6 year veterans in the Rams secondary. Currently the Rams have 9 cornerbacks on their roster four of which are rookies. Hopefully the injury to Bartell will not be serious. With Bartell down watch for Jerome Murphy to make a move to be the starting left cornerback for the Rams.

St. Louis Rams fans have to be very concerned about the St. Louis Rams secondary heading into the 2010 NFL season. Bartell played a lot of the 2009 season injured in addition Bradley Fletcher, Quincy Butler and Justin King all had injury issues in 2009. This secondary is just not talented enough to lose their depth. Rams fans need to hope the injury to Bartell is not serious.
