Danario Alexander Out 2-4 Weeks After Tearing Meniscus In Practice

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danario Alexander suffered a torn meniscus in Friday’s practice and will now miss at least two weeks after having surgery according to the Rams’ official Twitter account.

According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, it’s the same knee Alexander has had surgery on four times previously. Alexander suffered the latest injury running a pass pattern late in practice. He got up gingerly and teammates knew immediately that Alexander wasn’t right.

This is quite the blow to the Rams receiving corp, considering they’ve already lost a bevy of receivers this season and called Alexander up off the practice squad.

I would love to tell you who the hot pickup for the Rams offense will be now that Alexander is out, but the best bet is probably just to stay away from Rams receivers if you’re playing fantasy football. I mean, even if they do star one week, it’s a coin flip that they’ll be healthy for the next game.
