Hate to see young promising players have this happen to them.  Rams are my second team, a distant second though.  Easily the one of the top favorites to reach the SB out of NFC entering season too.  Bummer the young buck is gonna miss out on potentially challenging for a SB run this year, he’s gotta be devastated.  
 

 

Tell them to send us Cooper Kupp then:wub:

I have an idea!  We should trade Singletary to the Rams!!

As long as it's for Kupp, sure!

I’m really sorry to hear that on Akers.  Mods there are two threads so I’m assuming you guys will merge.

 

I don’t care the person, but hate hearing any injury.  I thought he would really help the Rams this year.

Done

There are some decent vet options I guess - Lev Bell would be ok in that offense. Gurley reunion?

 

Bell won't look ok in any offense. He was done before he signed with the Jets.

That’s devastating. Sucks enough getting hurt, then to lose all that money on top of it, ouch. 
Pushing free agency an extra year is a game changer for a running back too. 
Sad

If you're doing your prescribed workout and get injured there should be some salary protection. It's not like Bungie jumping or something. 

 

Henderson was really good last year though, and much better in the pass game. They just need to add a  physical back and they'll be fine.

Not that big of a deal honestly...RBs are a dime a dozen. They can replace with a UDFA and likely get similar production

Well, in that case, they should just sign T.J. Yeldon off the street. Would be just the same as Akers, right?

How long before a poster suggests we trade Singletary to them.

I'd do it for Aaron Donald. I know it's lopsided towards them but we could use a plug in the middle, so we will be forced to over pay in this trade.

Hate to see it happen to anyone, especially if the team calls it “non football injury” and won’t pay him

so if Derrick Henry or Dalvin Cook get hurt, both teams will be fine by just playing any RB?

That's gotta sting. No money AND no accrual. 

that's not right
