    Adeyanju done for the year

    St. Louis Rams DL Victor Adeyanju (forearm) will not play in Week 13, and he is out for the rest of the year.

    I am disappointed that we won't see him the rest of the season, but at least we know we got a future star, at least has the talent...


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    I like the intensity that Victor brings to the field. I think I will make a custom figure of him.

    I don't know if he will be a star for us in the future, but he was playing as well as could be expected for a rookie thrown into the fray rather suddenly. It is a shame he will miss the last 5 games and therefore the experience to be gleaned from them. At least the injury is not so severe as to prevent him from being ready for next year's training camp. He at the least appears to have his head screwed on right as opposed to the guy he replaced ...

    Agreed, wouldn't put him in the future star category yet. I'd like to see some more pass rush ability out of him before crowning him the heir to RDE just yet - nine starts and only one sack. We definitely need better production from that side of the line, but Victor has shown flashes that he could develop into a quality guy. It's a shame he won't get the additional five games experience to develop some more.

    Re: Adeyanju done for the year

    This sucks. Too many times, we've seen a young kid in his rookie season come along, play well for a rookie, begin showing signs of advancement...

    Then injury.

    This kid was coming along quite well. I liked his attitude, and his approach to the game. I don't know if he will be a future star, but from what I have seen of his play so far, I think we need to keep him around, and see.

    I hope he's able to work hard on rehab, and is able to return in even better shape next summer.

    Which is why I was begging for Mark Anderson who has always been good at reading plays and getting to the QB. Adeyanju showed some flashes that I didnt expect to see from him this year. The Rams definately have a future with him at RE, but this is a position the Rams should definately draft for depth
    The Roman and The Prince. Playmakers until the end.

    Mark Anderson has like 9 sacks this year.That is awsome for a rookie.I really liked Adeyanju.I hope Brandon and Eric Moore step up.From what I've read Eric is an excellent pass rusher.I have faith in him.

    Anderson's production is, to a large extent, based on who he's playing with. That said, nine sacks is impressive.

    Adeyanju is a guy who you like to have in the rotation. He still has a great deal of upside. Probably not a Pro Bowl type, but a guy who can be a piece of the puzzle.
