Jeff Fisher: Rams running back Isaiah Pead tears ACL

The injury suffered by Rams running back Isaiah Pead Saturday afternoon was a serious one.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher told reporters that Pead was believed to have suffered a torn ACL during a non-contact spill while returning a kickoff.

The 2012 second-rounder had been supplanted by Zac Stacy already, and with Tre Mason coming aboard this year, there was no guarantee he’d have had a chance to make an impact unless it was on special teams.

Now he won’t be able to do that.
