Rapp suffers second knee injury of the season

Second-year safety Taylor Rapp has flashed as someone at the peak of fitness at times, but he’s also flashed fragility as well. The young man has suffered a second knee injury of the season already. The first occurred early in training and allowed rookies Jordan Fuller and Terrell Burgess to get valuable snaps early.

Rapp eventually did return to suit up, but not before losing the starting safety job to Fuller.  And he has not been able to lay claim to the starting role ever since. Still, he did manage to return to a better fit in the new defensive scheme after a shaky start. In fact, he was getting significant snaps on defense.

MCL sprain

Rapp injured his knee in the first half of the Seattle game. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game, eventually being placed on Injured Reserve. The injury report for Taylor Rapp indicated that he had suffered a grade 2 MCL sprain.

Taylor Rapp suffers his second injury to his knee this season, and once more is expected to be out on or about a month’s time.  That should bring him back in time to close out the season with the team.
