WR Keenan Burton is out for the season with an injured knee, making the Rams even thinner at the receiver position. Burton joins Brooks Foster and Laurent Robinson on the injured receiver list, opening the door for rookie Brandon Gibson.
To replace Burton, the Rams have signed Jordan Kent to a contract. Kent is a 6’4 receiver originally drafted in 2007 by the Seahawks. Kent could bring solid size to a generally small receiving corp, but I wouldn’t imagine that he would make an immediate impact.
In other news, there still isn’t much word on whether G Richie Incognito will be back this week, but he has been making good strides. DL Chris Long does not have a serious injury according to x-rays (which revealed nothing more than a bone bruise), but the Rams will continue to monitor him as the week goes along.
