Injuries Piling Up For Struggling Rams
At the beginning of his post game presser, St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo named 15 players that are on the injury report after Sunday’s last second win over Cleveland, including two players who are now done for the season. Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui and cornerback Al Harris were both placed on injured reserve after suffering ACL tears in their knees. Spagnuolo is understandably frustrated by the latest season ending injuries, especially Harris’, “I'm crushed by that one. I tell you what, he has been a terrific, terrific addition in a lot of ways. He came off an injury from a year ago and he battled every week to get his body healthy and right. And what he has meant in the (meeting) room, certainly in the defensive back room ... He brings out a whole different level of energy out on the practice field.” The Rams have been crippled by injuries, but speculation has begun as to whether another bad losing season would be reason enough to cost Spagnuolo his job after 8 combined wins in his first two years.
