Michael Brockers Injury: Rams DT Carted Off Field

Rams rookie DT Michael Brockers went down with an apparent leg injury late in the first quarter of St. Louis's preseason game against Baltimore Thursday.

Brockers appeared to get hit low by Ravens OT Ramon Haregrove as Brockers pursued the ball carrier away from him. Multiple Rams' trainers and head coach Jeff Fisher tended to Brockers on the field.

He eventually was helped up and rode off the field on a cart. There haven't been any updates to the extent of his injury at this point.

St. Louis leads Baltmore 21-0 midway through the second quarter on the speed of three touchdown passes by QB Sam Bradford. He connected with Austin Pettis and Danny Amendola with scores in the first quarter, and Michael Hoomanawanui in the second quarter.

Brockers, the 14th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, was the Rams' target after trading down from the 6th overall pick with Dallas. The Cowboys selected Brockers' teammate at LSU, CB Morris Claiborne.
