Rams lose starting cornerback Fletcher for season

The Rams’ third-round rookie Bradley Fletcher was getting valuable experience during the last three games as the team’s starting cornerback.

He learned Monday that he won’t get any more experience in 2009 because of ligament damage suffered against the Colts Sunday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  Fletcher wasn’t the only starter the Rams will be missing in Week Nine.

Long snapper Chris Massey will also miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury, while starting right guard Richie Incognito is expected this week’s game with a foot sprain.

The Rams head to Detroit Sunday for the Stupor Bowl, hoping to end a 17-game losing streak.  St. Louis has been outscored 211-60 this season.
