  • Gibson out for season.

    From Mike Sando

    Gary Gibson will miss the remainder of the season after suffering what Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo described as a broken foot/ankle.

    This is a tough one for the Rams' defense. Adam Carriker is already on injured reserve.

    The Rams do like to rotate their defensive linemen, though, and that could help them cover for Gibson's absence. Still, this one hurts. Gibson has generally played well.

    Shame. Sounded like he was doing pretty good for the team.
    The Rams... Where dreams go to die.

    Yep, confirmed on Twitter: "DT Gary Gibson suffers broken ankle. Per Spagnuolo he will have surgery and miss the season." Losing someone else at a position we're already rather thin at is hardly good news. Gibson could have had the whole season to audition for next year's team.

      its a blow..hopefully Darell Scott ,LeJuan Ramsey & Victor Adeyanju will step up now...although he hasnt played at exactly a Pro Bowl level..ive been pleasantly surpised with Gibson and think he`s earned atleast a spot on the roster during the next pre-season until the final cuts,as he has atleast been a good contributer to our improved Run D this season. can see a scenario where its between him & AC battling for the same roster spot.

      Darell Scott i believe run a sub 4.90 40 time so maybe he could offer more of a pass rush up the middle with the extra oppurtunities now...

        What's galling about this is that it was a cheap shot. The play had moved downfield and there was no reason for contact by a lineman.

          This really stinks for us...

          We just keep ending up on the wrong side of the coin this year don't we.

            That really sucks he was a good player and did pretty well when he played. I just hope he can make a good recovery and can have a chance to earn a spot on next years team.

              Ugh / grrr! :frown:

              Feel bad for GG; he was really trying hard to make a comeback in an already intermittent career.

              :ram: Once again, time for the rest of the available DTs to bite the bullet and step up!

                Gibson really did a good job holding his own this year and I think that he'll be back strong next year. He had a great tackle early in this game and almost tipped a pass. He has good film from the season so far so I think he'll earn the starting spot again next year.

                  Did anyone else see Gibson constantly man handling lineman and ending up in the backfield. Im pretty sure he got a sack and I saw multiple times were he made the runner change directions in the backfield with his penetration. I dont know much about Gibson, but maybe he and Bannan can get the job done next year, granted we dont upgrade.

                  Gibson Continues To Grow

                  By Jonathan Webb/Special to

                  It’s been a long road in a short period of time for Brandon Gibson to become one of quarterback Sam Bradford’s favorite targets.

                  The second-year wideout edged his way onto the roster this year after a strong preseason performance. Even then, he remained inactive for the first two weeks.

                  How times have changed.

                  Gibson has led the team in receiving since the team’s Oct. 31 win over Carolina, and his performance has not been lost on his coaching staff.

                  “My goodness, what a great improvement he’s made,” said offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. “For a receiver like Brandon Gibson, I think it’s about consistency. He’s been targeted more but he’s been catching more balls. So I think that’s the key. We talk about making the routine plays routinely. He’s embraced that and has found a way to get that done.”

                  Though the routine plays have been typical for Gibson, the spectacular has not been out of the question, either. He has proven to be a versatile threat, making receptions underneath the coverage, while splitting time with rookie Danario Alexander as the Rams’ top downfield threat.

                  Success did not happen overnight for Gibson, who began last season with Philadelphia before being traded to the Rams. His 44 receptions for 492 yards on the year have already surpassed last year’s performance.

                  After coming to St. Louis at midseason last year, Gibson caught 34 balls for 348 yards in nine games, including four starts. As encouraged as he may have been with that showing, he knew he had plenty to improve on before he would be a regular in the NFL.

                  “I just wanted to practice a lot better,” Gibson said. “Last year, I didn’t think I was a very good practice player, but I think I wanted to change my view on things and practice hard every day.”

                  Yet even that proved difficult near the beginning of this year, as his health betrayed him during the offseason.

                  The 23-year-old Gibson missed much of the team’s OTAs while nursing a hamstring injury. Once healthy, Gibson began to make an impact in the Rams’ preseason contests, nudging his way onto the 53-man roster. After an injury to veteran Mark Clayton, Gibson’s numbers began to spike.

                  For Gibson, the increased production is simply a matter of being given the opportunity to succeed.

                  “I think the injuries set me back,” Gibson said. “It wasn’t that I wasn’t playing well. It was that I was injured and didn’t have a chance to get on the field. I’m glad that I got healthy and showed everyone that I’m a good player and I’m able to do some things.”

                  ‘Some things’ include an eight-catch, 72-yard performance at San Francisco and a 67-yard showing against New Orleans last week, his top two performances of the year. Gibson has continued to receive more attention...

                  Rams bring back DT Gibson
                  by Nick
                  Rams have Robbins, Bannan, Muir, Cudjo, Scott. Gibson likely competes with the latter two for a roster spot....
