    Rams lose TE Harkey with leg injury

    By Jim Thomas


    The Rams’ No. 3 tight end, Cory Harkey, has a slight fracture in his lower leg and could miss about a month of action. Harkey suffered the injury when a Denver defensive back went low on Harkey and struck him in the leg during Saturday’s preseason game.

    Although the injury is a blow to the Rams’ depth at that position, Lance Kendricks is about ready to return. Plus, there was some concern that Harkey’s injury could have been much worse. As it is, he may miss only two or three regular-season games.

    Harkey, who made the team as an undrafted free agent a year, ago, has gotten a ton of reps during training camp and the preseason while Kendricks continued to work his way back from offseason knee surgery. Harkey is known as a blocking specialist, but has improved as a pass catcher since last season.

    ROSTER CUTS

    Here are confirmed roster cuts by the Rams so far:

    QB Tim Jenkins

    WR Andrew Helmick

    DT Al Lapuaho

    LB Joseph LeBeau

    CB Robert Steeples

    K/P Brett Baer

    LS Jorgen Hus

    After reading the thread title I thought he was out for the season, so only missing two or three games is a relief. Harkey has really impressed me this preseason so thankfully the injury wasn't too serious. Having said that if this is the worst injury the Rams carry into the season I'll be very thankful.

    Rams announce 11 moves. New cuts are WR Raymond Radway, TE Colby Prince, WR Demetrius Fields. As expected OL Graham Pocic waived/injured.

    So they cut Radway and Hemlick.... I take it we are only going with 5WR and doubling down on TEs as Cook will be used as a WR as well.

    Sorry about the injury to Harkey, probably out for September.

    Now I'm wondering what the Rams TE group will be until then besides...

    * Jared Cook
    * Lance Kendricks

    Yeah, looks like a battle between McNeil and Luetzenrecherchercherchercherkan.

    I say McNeil wins and .... um ... let's call him Leutz for short, is offered a practice squad spot (if he's not snatched up). Just my guess-

    Close competition between Lutz and Mac. But then, we also have Potter the veteran.
