Rams Injury Recap: Not Much Good News

2 of 2

As far as the Bradford thing goes, these ankle injuries are hard to predict. I thought he might go last week, so I won’t be making any predictions on his status this week. The Smith injury is bad, but it could have been much worse. I really thought it might be career-threatening, so if he “only” has a concussion, I think we take that as a win. King’s injury is bad because of our lack of depth, and although I have been hard on him this season (justifiably so) we can’t afford for him to be out for long. My guess is Scott will miss significant time as will Smith. I’m not sure about Poppinga, although I wouldn’t be shocked if he missed at least a week. None of the others are serious from what I’ve heard, but there is plenty on that list to be concerned about.
