    Injured player status

    If you were at the home opener, you witnessed the start of the demise of the Rams 2011 season. When SJax went to the sidelines and did not return, the dome had a strange feel to it...and when Bartell went down, a lot of people knew things were only going to get worse.

    Right now, we have a LOT of guys who are injured. Bradford, Bartell, Smith, Amendola - and news is hard to find on many of them.

    If you have ANY VERIFIABLE news about the injured Rams, please post it in here. I don't want to know what your barber's cousin's ex-girlfriend's mother's pastor heard from the waiter at the Spaghetti Factory - I want actual news.

    I figured keeping it all together in one thread would be a good idea.

    After going to a local hospital for an MRI and CAT scan, Smith received relatively good news. The initial diagnosis is a strained neck and a concussion. The Rams will evaluate Smith further on Monday.

    Re: Injured player status

    yeah a good prognosis all in all, but we all know about Smith and his concussions. What'd he lose last year, four or six games for concussion symptoms? I know Clifton Ryan couldnt' get rid of the headaches and he was lost altogether, but Smith's head has shown to be a slow healer (and a slow learner according to some).

    Really glad it wasn't something worse. But it's too bad for the team though. I'm not high on the OL backups.

    Isn't this like Smith's third or fourth concussion? He's supposed to block with him hands, not his head?

    Unfortunately, sometimes our OT's have to play defense. I think he got hurt on Cadillacs fumble.

    Pretty obvious that he's been getting his head kicked in all year.

    Yes FF, sad but true. The fumble was a killer in more ways then 1.
