The news on Chris Long’s knee is better than it looked when Long went down on Sunday.
Long is likely to miss a week or two with a hyperextended knee, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Long does not have ACL or MCL damage.
With the Rams heading into their bye week, it’s possible that Long won’t miss a single game. The Rams’ next game is October 25 against the Browns.
Long, who missed 10 games last year with an ankle injury, has started all five games this year and has two sacks.
