    Atogwe possibly done for season

    This is per rotoworld:


    Rams FS O.J. Atogwe may miss the rest of 2009 after suffering a serious shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to Chicago.
    Atogwe, the Rams' franchise player, has two options. He could finish out the year in a shoulder harness -- essentially playing with one arm -- or shut it down and get surgery out of the way early. The Rams would probably prefer Atogwe sit out the final four games considering their 1-11 record, rather than risk an aggravation. He'll seek more opinions before making a decision.
    Source: St. Louis Rams on Twitter


    ------------

    You'd have to think the most logical decision would be to shut him down for the year. There's no sense in risking further injury to him, especially if we plan on signing him to an extension this off season.

    I agree, shut him down and get the surgery now, why take a chance on one of your best players.

    Just heard on the radio he has a torn labrum? Sounds like he's done for the year.

    Great game Atogwe. Loved the strip in the beginning of the game. It made me think something good was going to happen.

    Might as well sit him or send him off to surgery. No point in making it worse now.

    Get the surgery and get it right, now. He'll be ready for OTA's if he does it now.

    I had that surgery and he would be ready in 2 1/2 to 3 months.

    6 turnover on the season, I think. Not a bad year considering the team he is on.

    Probably about as thin as our WR corps. I am pretty sure Martz did some voodoo curse after he left. We just can't stay healthy.

    Just sit him for the year and sign him to a long term deal. The guy has shown he can play.

    We try that attempt, he will book it.

    He doesn't deserve a pay cut because of a freak injury.
