The injury bug has struck again, and this time it took away a promising young rookie. St. Louis Rams wide receiver Greg Salas will miss the remainder of the 2011 season after breaking his fibula Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. It’s an abrupt end to a season that saw Salas take some giant steps forward as a member of this receiving corps. After a bit of a slow start, Salas really started to come into his own over the last few weeks. He displayed nice hands at times, and he showed the ability to be tough with the ball in his hands. I saw enough from him this year to fell good about his future with this team.
As far as the rest of the injury report goes, it’s a little longer this week. First, let’s talk Sam Bradford. According to Spags, Bradford was a little sore after the game, but everything looks pretty good on that front. Danario Alexander is questionable for practice Wednesday, but it sounds like he is improving. Josh Hull is dealing with a hamstring, and Lance Kendricks is being called day-to-day with a foot sprain. The news on Kendricks is better than expected after he left the game on Sunday. Jerious Norwood has a hamstring issue, and Gary Gibson has a back thing. Darell Scott is hoping to get back this week, but Jason Smith is still doubtful. Darian Stewart has a minor ankle issue, and Brandon Gibson has a minor thigh contusion.
