Rams will need rookies Cobie Durant and Derion Kendrick to step up vs Cardinals
The Los Angeles Rams entered Week 2 of the regular season with Tremayne Anchrum as the starting right guard due to Brian Allen’s injury at the center position. Unfortunately, Anchrum did not get much of an opportunity to showcase his ability as he was injured early in the first quarter. As it turned out, the Clemson Tiger suffered a fractured fibula and will be placed on Injured Reserve.
The Rams fortune with injuries did not improve throughout the course of the game as a number of players were injured and now enter Week 3 with questionable and even doubtful designations.
Below are the newest injuries that Los Angeles is dealing with entering their Week 3 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals:
- Troy Hill, CB (Groin)
Troy Hill injured his groin late in the first half and did not return. I am still awaiting for further details on the occurrence of the injury, but I believe it happened after an explosive play for Atlanta, in which Hill missed a tackle and fell to the ground. He was replaced immediately by Cobie Durant.
Week 3 Status: Out / IR* (as of Tuesday afternoon)
- Cobie Durant, CB (Grade 1 Hamstring Strain)
Despite a hamstring strain, Cobie Durant played a whale of a game. He collected a sack and returned an interception 51 yards into the redzone. I expect Durant to be limited during the week, but to ultimately play in Week 3 against an Arizona team using empty sets.
