The St. Louis Rams are enduring a but-whipping at the hands of the AFC West-rival San Francisco 49ers, but they may have suffered a bigger loss than that, as starting rookie safety T.J. McDonald was carted off the field with 10 minutes left in the third quarter after suffering an injury to his right leg.

As it turns out, he will likely be out for the remainder of the season after fracturing his leg:


McDonald, a rookie third-round draft pick out of USC, appeared to run into defensive end Gerald Rivers at the end of a 3-yard run by the 49ers’ Frank Gore in the third quarter.

Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan sustained a thigh injury in the second quarter and his return was doubtful. Finnegan was hurt covering Anquan Boldin on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Colin Kaepernick 6:20 before halftime.

    Everyone quite reading when you called the St. Louis Rams and The San Francisco 49ers AFC West-rivals. That is why you have no comments. Terrible man. Just terrible.

      ” Quit “, no E please. But you
      are correct, as of Thurdays
      its now just a division game.
      And Charles Barkley actually
      says ” turreble, just turreble “!
      I’m talking about the Rams
      OC & DC.. Fire both please.

        Pretty bad mistake man. How do you expect to be taken seriously as a sports writer when you seem not to know the divisions? If I had written an article about how to type well and proceeded to make a typing error, then I would see your comparison.
        No argument on the OC and DC. Fire both. Bradford was also unbearably bad last night. St. Louis fans that were just waiting for him to get weapons on offense are done waiting and have given up on him. They will be calling for his head in a few weeks.

          Sorry I lashed out @ you. I apologize. My
          Rams world is
          crashing down on me &
          Its affecting me. This Humble Pie tastes awfull.
          I’m walking away from the edge now. I
          wonder if there is something
          good on the
          Tube . . .later.
