Chris Long Injury: St. Louis Rams Star Turns Ankle On Robert Quinn Sack

The St. Louis Rams could be without breakout star Chris Long for part of their contest against the Seattle Seahawks; he twisted it in an impressive play on defense that saw both Long and fellow defensive end, rookie Robert Quinn, chase the Seahawks’ Tarvaris Jackson down for another sack. Quinn, who earned the sack, landed on Long’s ankle, and the older DE got up limping on the play.

Early reports from the sideline suggest that Long’s ankle is only twisted; it was retaped, and he’s expected to return before the end of the game to continue haunting Jackson and the Seahawks’ porous offensive line. Long is on his way to a breakout season; in just nine games he’s half-a-sack from matching the career high of 8.5 he set in 2010, finally showing off the promise that saw him selected second overall in the 2008 NFL Draft. The last thing the Rams need is another injury—luckily for their defense, it looks like this one isn’t serious enough to make Long the latest addition to the injured reserve.
