Tight ends suffer MCL injuries

A pair of Rams tight ends suffered injuries to the medial collateral ligaments but at this point have different prognoses.

Rams' tight ends suffer MCL injuries.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo said that Billy Bajema's MCL injury could take two to four weeks to heal but that trainer Reggie Scott listed  Daniel Fells as day to day with his MCL strain.

Defensive tackle Darell Scott underwent an MRI and was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain, an injury that commonly takes a month to heal.

"We'll see how long that takes. We'll probably not have him this week," Spagnuolo said.
Safety Craig Dahl will undergo post-concussion tests Tuesday. Spagnuolo said he was resting Monday. Dahl suffered the concussion on a hit to Raiders' running back Darren McFadden.
Defensive tackle Clifton Ryan also will undergo further testing. He was hospitalized overnight Wednesday for what seem to be migraines and did not play in the Rams' 16-14 loss Sunday in Oakland.

"We want to make sure everything is eliminated," Spagnuolo said.

Spagnuolo said running back Steven Jackson's knee and Rodger Saffold's back were sore but that both appeared OK.

Other players appear to be on the mend. Cornerback Justin King (hamstring) is expected back at practice Wedensday. Both LB Chris Chamberlain and TE Michael Hoomanuwanui are out of the cast/boot  each was wearing as a result of foot and ankle injuries, respectively.
