Rams T Andrew Whitworth tears MCL;

Recommended Posts

...and that's likely the career over. A sad way to end it, but you have to figure he has a decent HoF chance.

That’s awful, he was having a great year. Probably the last time we see him on the field.

I actually think he could be back for the playoffs if they make it depending on the tear, MCL's aren't as severe as the other tears (ACL, Achilles)

He's been excellent this season so this is going to hurt us. Noteboom really has to show his potential now.

 he signed a 3 year deal in 2020, so he still has 2 years left . MCL should be easy to repair and recover from. He has been one of the top LT's for years , but is the replacement LT near as good? The Rams/Goff  could have a major issue here when facing top tier pass rushers .

IR is only 3 weeks - he's likely out 4 weeks with a grade 2 MCL, he'll be back for the playoffs.

A massive blow for the Rams O, though - they were about to steamroll SEA's D until Whitworth left.   This is a major problem for the next 4 weeks.

 

 

EDIT:  Wait, he's got a PCL injury too?   Wow, that's a huge difference.   The playoffs isn't such a clear ETA.

Rams beat reporters are saying 6ish weeks is the goal (three-week IR plus the 21-day window).

How good is Joe Noteboom?  Over the next 6 weeks the Rams play:

@Bucs
49ers
@Cardinals
Patriots
Jets
@Seahawks
Cardinals

That's a pretty tough road,

Good enough to land Rachel McAdams.
