    Rams lose DE Ah You for season with knee injury

    Season-ending practice injuries are rare once the regular season starts, but thatís what happened to defensive end C.J. Ah You.
    Ah You suffered damage to the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, according to St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo, and will miss the rest of the season.
    After missing the Detroit game, Ah You was just getting back to health from a high ankle sprain. He suffered the knee injury in practice Wednesday when the team worked indoors at Rams Park because of rain.
    Ah You, who was buried on the depth chart at the start of training camp, won a roster spot and was part of the Ramsí four-defensive end pass-rush package. He had 18 tackles, one sack, and two pass breakups this season.
    Ah You becomes the ninth Rams player to go on the injured reserve list this season. Victor Adeyanju will pick up most of Ah Youís playing time Sunday against Arizona. Spagnuolo indicated the team may wait until next week to fill Ah Youís spot on the active roster.

    Re: Rams lose DE Ah You for season with knee injury

    Man, I am so dang tired of all these injuries. Year after year it's the same lousy thing. What I can't understand is how we went through an extremely physical camp with live hitting and had virtually no serious injuries, then once the season starts we've got guys dropping like flies.

    We simply must, somehow, get a handle on these seemingly endless injuries before we can have any real hope of moving forward and improving as a football team.

    And yes, I know that "every team has injuries" but few have them to the extent and severity of the Rams.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Either this team needs to fire the training staff or hire a shaman to take care of the "bad luck". Random practice injuries seem to strike more often in St. Louis than in any other locale.

    Very disappointing, especially since Au You has been playing so well after coming out of nowhere. At least we have Adeyanju waiting for the opportunity to prove himself. I think he'll rise to the occasion.

    I'm pretty sure there are 9 on the IR, does anyone know how many were injured in St. Louis and how many were injured on the road. If 7 or 8 were injured on the turf then the Rams should definitely look into it.

    I agree. I was really surprised that he's been inactive for so long. I wish we knew the reasons, but now here's his shot to prove himself to the team. Good luck Vic.

    Artificial turf should be illegal. There is no excuse for not playing on grass, especially when you pay these guys the type of money that they do.

    Always bad news to see someone go down like that, even more so when it's only practice.

    But I believe Adeyanju will play at least as well if not better in his place - I'm surprised he has not been used more.

    At the practice facilities or in game situations?

    Because I think you have it the wrong way.

    At the practice facilities or in game situations? Both.

    I think the story says he was practicing indoors because of the rain right?

    "He suffered the knee injury in practice Wednesday when the team worked indoors at Rams Park because of rain."

    My assumption is that "inside" means artificial grass and not real, but I could be wrong. According to my wife I usually am!
