Turf Show Times: "For Some Players Injuries Seem to Come Naturally"

On Turf Show Times, a summary of Setterstrom’s sad story:

It’s a damn shame. Setterstrom is a good player, who probably could be a starter. The seventh round pick from 2006 earned his first starting gig his rookie season, playing admirably filling in for other injured starters in the last season the Rams offense was able to accumulate yards and points. In 2007, he landed the starting left guard job during camp, only to have a knee injury end his season after three games. He got work last year in nine games, starting three late in the year.

Removing the tragedy of Setterstrom’s story, it’s not the worst loss the Rams could suffer. They have some depth at guard with John Greco (who has to prove himself this year) and Adam Goldberg (better at OG than OT, but might be needed at OT), and with Hank Fraley on board now they have a backup center with lots of starting experience. It’s fair to wonder about Setterstrom’s effectiveness after an injury history like that.

Rams' Offensive Line Takes Hit: Setterstrom Could Miss Season

Rams Offensive Lineman Mark Setterstrom, who appeared in nine games last year and made three starts, could miss the entire 2010 season after a triceps injury that might require surgery. Setterstrom is no stranger to missed time; after opening 2007 as a starter he missed most of that season and all of 2008 with successive knee injuries. 

Bill Coats of the Post-Dispatch reports that his 2010 season hinges on whether or not he opts for surgery to repair what has become a chronic problem: 

Coach Steve Spagnuolo said Setterstrom, who had the same injury near the end of last season, so far had not made a decision about whether to have surgery or let the muscle try to heal on its own. If Setterstrom does opt for surgery, he probably would miss the 2010 season.

Since being chosen in the seventh round of the 2006 draft Setterstrom has made twelve starts for the Rams.
