The St. Louis Rams were able to hand the Arizona Cardinals their first loss of the season last night, but they ended the contest without their top receiver, Danny Amendola. The wide out left the contest in the second quarter with a shoulder injury, which could end up being a broken collarbone, reports Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com:
"Ya, it's big, I'm not gonna lie,” Rams quarterback Sam Bradford told Flanagan after the game. "Obviously, he's a big part of the offense. A lot of what we do runs through him. He went down last year and it really hurt us. I feel confident about our guys we got this year and I think it just opens up a spot for someone to step up and make some plays."
Amendola will undergo a CT scan this morning to determine the extent of the injury. If the results do show a broken collarbone, he will be out for the foreseeable future.
If Amendola is sidelined Rosenthal notes that the Rams will ask the remainder of their receiving corps, Brandon Gibson, Austin Pettis, Chris Givens and Brian Quick, to step up.
