Rams OLT Saffold has MCL sprain

Rams OLT Rodger Saffold was carted off the field on a stretcher in the Week One game against the Lions.

Saffold’s head collided awkwardly with the back of Lions DT Sammie Hill. The team is calling Saffold’s injury a neck injury. The Fox broadcast reported that Saffold had feeling in his extremities.

Former Jet Wayne Hunter took over at left tackle. The Rams also lost C Scott Wells earlier in the game to a foot injury.

Saffold started every game as a rookie in 2010 and all nine in which he played last season before suffering a season-ending pectoral injury.
