The news was relatively good for Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold, though he is expected to miss some time.
Coach Jeff Fisher said Saffold suffered a “significant” strained neck, but not a more serious injury, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Saffold stayed overnight in a Detroit hospital Sunday, but returned home Monday. He’s still expected to miss at least this week’s game with the Redskins, and perhaps longer.
The also know center Scott Wells will miss at least the next six weeks, as they placed him on the new injured reserve “designated for return” list.
Wells suffered a broken metatarsal in his left foot and will need surgery to repair it.
They’ll need the roster spot for depth, because they finished the game with no backup blockers, after plugging reserves into new spots to cover.
