Rodger Saffold Injury: St. Louis Rams OT Won't Return After Another Injury Vs. Redskins

Just minutes after Rodger Saffold made his miraculous return to the St. Louis Rams' offensive line after a Week 1 neck injury, another Rodger Saffold injury will leave the Rams shorthanded at OT for the rest of Week 2. Saffold suffered a leg injury recovering a Sam Bradford fumble just before the Rams put their first points of the day on the board. And now he won't return, which leaves his herculean effort getting back after that neck problem looking a little less crucial than it did a week ago.

In his place the Rams bring in Wayne Hunter, the offensive linemen they received after trading former No. 2 overall pick Jason Smith to the New York Jets. It's not what they were hoping for after Saffold practiced full-time on Thursday, but Sam Bradford and Steven Jackson will have to give up any hope of time and room to work for the last three quarters of this game.
