NFL Injury Report: Rams' Rodger Saffold Only Has Neck Sprain

Though no neck injury is a good one, St. Louis Rams offensive lineman Rodger Saffold is likely breathing a sigh of relief. Saffold suffered a neck sprain in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions -- but the injury seemingly could have been so much worse.

Saffold was carted off the field wearing a neck brace, after banging his head into another lineman. Saffold went down immediately, and stayed down for a few minutes, before being strapped and carted off the field.

Luckily for Saffold and the Rams, the injury was only a sprain, and Saffold should be OK going forward.

Elsewhere on St.Louis injury front, Scott Wells left the game on Sunday with a foot injury. The Rams can ill afford more injuries to the offensive line, so hopefully Wells will be able to participate in practices this week.
