Michael Brockers injury: Ankle appears to be fine

Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Rookie DT Michael Brockers saw his first action of the year on Sunday, and his ankle appears to be fine after he suffered a slight aggravation

St. Louis Rams rookie Michael Brockers saw his first action of the year against the Seattle Seahawks after suffering a high ankle sprain in the preseason. Brockers appeared to reinjure his ankle in the first quarter, but returned to action quickly and it's thought he suffered nothing more than a tweak.

The Rams took Brockers with the 14th pick in the first round this past year to help shore up their interior defensive line. However, the LSU product has struggled to get onto the field until this past weekend. He was questionable for the game after seeing only limited time in practice, but ended up starting and seeing significant action against the Seahawks.

The Rams will need Brockers to stay healthy, as their defensive line depth has been tested by injuries. Defensive end Eugene Sims suffered a concussion on Sunday, and rookie defensive tackle Matt Conrath is also sidelined with injury.
