Ed "Pi Double I" Henderson
The Los Angeles Rams have placed Micah Kiser, their starting and team-leading inside linebacker, on the injured reserve list. Kiser, who injured his knee late in the game on Monday night as the Rams upset the highly favored Tampa Buccaneers 27-24.
Troy Reeder, the second-year linebacker, replaced Kiser for the remainder of the game and made one start this season. In Reeder's first 2020 start, not only did he record his first NFL sack, and added two additional sacks against The Washington Team. On normality, those stats would earn him a Defensive Player of the Week but only overshadowed by Aaron Donald's performance.
The Rams will host the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at So-Fi Stadium in an NFC rivalry game and seek to avenge their week six loss. It is unsure whether Reeder will get the start or the Rams will go with Justin Hollis or Kenny Young.
Kiser has suffered his third injury, with the Rams requiring him to miss games. Last season, Kiser missed the entire 2019 season with a torn pectoral, a groin injury week four against the New York Giants, and now his knee. At this time, it is uncertain whether Kiser's injury will require surgery and to miss the remainder of the season.
