Rams receiver Keenan Burton out for season

By now, it’s surprising when the Rams don’t suffer a serious injury at wide receiver on any given Sunday.

Keenan Burton was the latest victim of the injury bug in St. Louis and will miss the rest of the season because of a patella tendon injury that will require surgery.

A fourth-round pick in 2008, Burton started six games for the Rams this year after replacing Laurent Robinson.  He finishes with 25 catches or 253 yards.

Look for former Eagle Brandon Gibson to get Burton’s starting job

Acquired in the deal that sent Will Witherspoon to Philadelphia, Gibson led the Rams with seven catches and 93 yards Sunday.  It was an impressive display for a rookie and indicates that the Witherspoon deal could ultimately help both teams.

  1. Man I miss ‘Spoon when he played with the Panthers. But I’m glad he’s tearing it up in Philly, and good luck to the new kid (Gibson) in St. Louis. They need something to be excited about down there. I was pulling for them to beat New Orleans yesterday. What a shame, someone’s going to show up New Orleans as slack as they’ve been playing lately.

  2. Gibson will be a good pro. eagles fans knew we gave up a good one but we had to in order to counter act injuries.

  3. Gibson was the best WR the Birds had in the preseason… they wanted to keep him but Browns cap hit was too much…. a young QB next and the Rams have a great core of skilled players
