Alec Ogletree (leg) has been placed on IR/designated to return, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.
Ogletree suffered a fractured fibula in Week 4 and isn't expected to be ready before December. He seems no better than 50-50 to make it back this season, but the St. Louis Rams don't have any other candidates for the lone spot on IR/designated to return.
St. Louis Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree underwent surgery Tuesday on a fractured fibula and will be miss at least eight weeks, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
What was initially termed an ankle injury has been confirmed as a broken leg, threatening the remainder of Ogletree's season. He was easily on pace to achieve a third 100-tackle campaign in a row to kick off his career. However, his absence will make way for Akeem Ayers to serve as the Rams' weak-side linebacker.
St. Louis Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree will need ankle surgery and may miss the rest of the season, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Ogletree will either be placed on injured reserve/designated to return or season-ending injured reserve. He can safely be ruled out through November, and can therefore be dropped in IDP leagues. It's a big loss for the Rams, with some combination of Akeem Ayers , Bryce Hager and Cameron Lynch likely to take on Ogletree's snaps.
St. Louis Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree was carted off the field in Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals , Kent Somers of AZCentral Sports reports.
Ogletree suffered a leg injury and his return to the game is questionable. He has 18 tackles through the first three games of the season. Look for Cameron Lynch to play in his place if Ogletree can't make it back into the game.
Ogletree is off to a dynamite start to the season, averaging more than 10 tackles a game and now adding a couple sacks. He's turning into a star in this league and will be a solid IDP option for years to come.
