Rams lose two more offensive linemen to season-ending surgery
The St. Louis Rams could be holding open auditions for offensive linemen this week after losing two more players to injury in Sunday's 37-13 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Offensive guard Jamon Brown fractured his lower leg late in the contest and fellow rookie Darrell Williams was also lost for the season after suffering a dislocated wrist. Both players were hurt on the same play, although Williams managed to finish out the game.
Williams was filling in for right tackle Rob Havenstein, who suffered a calf injury in the contest. Coach Jeff Fisher said Havenstein's injury isn't as bad as the team feared, but it's unclear if he will be available for Sunday's matchup versus the Baltimore Ravens.
St. Louis will promote offensive tackle Isaiah Battle from the practice squad to fill one roster slot and will likely have to bring in a free agent. The Rams already lost starting guard Rodger Saffold to season-ending shoulder surgery earlier in the season.
"We’re discussing stuff with our pro scouting department to see what our options are to get some depth in here and potentially some practice squad help," Fisher said.
