Jordan Fuller Placed On IR
The Los Angeles Rams lose their rookie starting safety Jordan Fuller to the injured reserve list. Fuller re-injured the same shoulder he injured against the Buffalo Bills two weeks ago. Fuller missed the next game against the New York Giants before returning to the field Sunday against the Washington Football Team.
Late in the fourth quarter, Fuller closed in fast on a short pass to J.D. McKissick and leveled him as the ball was arriving. Fuller appeared to get up slowly and linger over to favor his shoulder as he went to the sideline. The Rams medical staff initially felt Fuller had a stinger but ended up being more severe than expected.
Fuller will have to remain on IR for a minimum of three weeks and will be eligible to return in Week Nine, one week after their bye against the red hot Seattle Seahawks, who currently holds first place in the division. The bye week allows Fuller to have one extra week to recover and be fully ready against the Seahawks.
In a corresponding move, the Rams promote rookie safety Juju Hughes to the active roster two weeks after being promoted to Fuller's first injury.
