Christian injured his ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's game, though the specifics of the injury remain unclear. The issue isn't thought to be severe and shouldn't limit him in the slightest once offseason work roles around.
Christian is doubtful to return to Thursday's game against the Seahawks due to a leg injury, Myles Simmons of The Rams.com reports.
The injury occurred in the latter portion of the second quarter. Blake Countess and Mike Jordan will presumably see an increased role providing depth at cornerback if Christian is indeed unable to return.
Christian was claimed off of waivers by the Rams on Thursday.
Christian, a fifth round selection of the 2016 NFL Draft, was waived by the Cardinals earlier in the week, but it didn't take long for him to find a new home. While the rookie isn't likely to see major action anytime soon, especially with a new team, he is expected to serve in a reserve role behind starting strong safety T.J. McDonald. The Rams released defensive back Isaiah Johnson to make room for Christian on the roster.
