Rams OT Roger Saffold Out At Least A Month With MCL Strain
Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold will be out at least a month because of a right knee injury.
Coach Jeff Fisher said Monday that Saffold has a third-degree MCL sprain and other damage to the knee, but said it was not season-ending.
''He's going to miss a number of weeks. How many weeks, I can't speculate now,'' Fisher said. ''He's got a pretty good attitude about it. He's happy with the news that we got as a result of the MRI.''
Saffold was hurt advancing a fumble in the first quarter Sunday in the Rams' 31-28 victory over the Redskins. He was a surprise starter after being hospitalized with a neck strain in Detroit after the opener and listed as questionable prior to the game.
Wayne Hunter, acquired late in the preseason from the Jets in exchange for tackle Jason Smith, is the likely starter this week at Chicago.
