Greg Salas Injury: St. Louis Rams' Rookie Carted Off Grabbing Leg

The St. Louis Rams may have just lost their second slot receiver—Greg Salas left their Week 9 nailbiter against the Arizona Cardinals with an apparent leg injury after catching his seventh ball of the day from Sam Bradford. Salas, a fifth-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft from Hawaii, had just emerged as an adequate replacement for Danny Amendola after an extremely slow start to the season. After holding his leg on the field Salas was carted off with an air-cast on, looking especially glum—this could be a serious injury for a Rams offense that couldn’t really take another.

With Salas gone, fourth-rounder Austin Pettis, heretofore confined to special teams, will likely take his place, while a bigger share of the offense will go to Brandon Gibson and Brandon Lloyd.

The Rams had already lost second-round pick Lance Kendricks in the first half, to another leg injury. If both injuries are serious it looks like we’ll see just how deep this maligned Rams receiver corps can be.
