A week ago, Rams receiver Danario Alexander was coming off an NFL debut that included four catches, 72 yards and a touchdown. He was the hot fantasy football pickup of the week and looked to add a new dimension to the Rams offense.
Now he’s just the latest injured player in a banged-up Rams receiver group.
Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Alexader tore his meniscus during practice Friday and will need surgery. Alexander has a long, nasty history of knee injuries. This will be the fifth procedure on his left knee, which may be why he was limited to only 12 snaps against the Bucs last week.
He’s estimated to be out 2-4 weeks, although we wonder if the Rams will focus more on trying to get the kid fully healthy for 2010.
