Rams safety Russ Yeast has been taken to a Seattle hospital after suffering a pulmonary contusion during today’s game against the Seahawks.

Yeast is in stable condition, Rams head coach Sean McVay said after the game.

The Rams initially announced during the game that Yeast had suffered a chest injury and would be questionable to return. The team later announced that he had been ruled out.

A pulmonary contusion is an injury to the lung that typically comes from blunt force trauma to the chest.

The 23-year-old Yeast is a rookie whom the Rams selected with a seventh-round draft pick. He played in 15 games as a rookie this season.

  1. American football has been played since the 1800’s but only now after players were forced to get an injection that is known to increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, myocarditis, pericarditis, and numerous other things are we seeing these type of injuries. Must be a complete coincidence and Not related in any way whatsoever.

  2. Maybe the Squealers can make fun of him too. Anybody else catch the players doing CPR on each other to “celebrate” a sack? Classless.
