Mark Clayton suffered torn patellar tendon

We told you on Sunday evening about Rams receiver Mark Clayton’s disappointing season-ending injury.

Now we can tell you exactly what he got injured.  ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Clayton suffered a torn patella tendon in his knee.

It’s a particularly cruel injury for Clayton, who was about to enter free agency for the first time at 28 years old. 

It’s another reminder how fast things can change in the NFL.  Yesterday morning, Clayton was one of the top ten receivers in the NFC and the Rams felt great about their chances in a soft NFC West with an up and coming defense.  Reality hit hard with this injury and a 44-6 beatdown in Detroit.

  1. Enough about the Rams here ok…what about Detroit scoring 44 on anybody?!!!!
    Now there is a story.

  2. So what is SD asking for in a trade for Vincent Jackson?
    St Louis, could address a few of their most critical needs, add a proven, young, talented receiver, and generate excitement on the team and in the fanbase by proving that they are willing to go out and get some people. It’s a move that sends a message to the current players and will put some butts in the stadium seating.
    Of course, if A.J. even mutters the words “first-rounder” that all goes out the window…
