Rams place Atogwe on injured reserve

On Monday we noted that St. Louis Rams safety Oshiomogho Atogwe could be done for the season as a result of a shoulder injury.

Today it became official: The Rams have placed Atogwe on injured reserve.

Atogwe was one of the few Rams having a good season, with 84 tackles, two interceptions, three passes defensed, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. When he misses Sunday’s game, it will break a streak of 60 straight starts. Atogwe, who also devotes a great deal of his time to volunteer work, played this season on the one-year contract he signed after being designated the team’s franchise player.

The Rams also waived linebacker Dominic Douglas, signed quarterback Mike Reilly from the Packers’ practice squad and signed free agent safety Clinton Hart.
