Rams Lose Two More For The Season

1 of 2

We got the official injury update from Spags today, and it looks like preliminary reports on Al Harris and Michael Hoomanawanui were unfortunately correct. Harris and Illini Mike are both going to miss the rest of the season with ACL injuries. Mike’s injury looked absolutely awful, so the seriousness is really no surprise. I was a little more shocked that Harris has an ACL, but that doesn’t make it any better. I feel bad for both of these guys. Illini Mike because he just can’t catch a break when it comes to injuries and Harris because he was really having a very nice comeback season. As it has been all year, the guys next in line are going to have to step up. Let’s hope Lance Kendricks gets healthy soon, and the other corners will all move up a notch on the depth chart.

Leading off the rest of the injury list is Brandon Gibson, who is dealing with some soreness in his groin. Jason Smith doesn’t sound like he’s much improved, and he’s not expected to be available this week. Cadillac Williams has a calf strain, and he will be evaluated again later in the week. Danario Alexander’s hamstring is improving, and he’s hoping to be available this week. Rodger Saffold and Justin King both had head injuries, but they are both feeling better and are symptom free. Finally, Darian Stewart suffered a neck injury but is also feeling better. He’s being called limited for Wednesday’s practice, but the team is hopeful he will be available by the weekend.
