Webster (Achilles) was officially placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Webster ruptured his Achilles tendon in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, so this decision was just a matter of time. The fifth year cornerback will finish his season with 38 tackles (34 solo), seven passes defended, and an interception across 11 games. He will now look to recover for the 2018 season. Troy Hill and Nickell Robey-Coleman are expected to see their roles extended due to the Webster's injury.
Webster ruptured his right Achilles tendon in Sunday's 43-35 loss to the Eagles, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.
The injury will spell an end to Webster's season, leaving Troy Hill and Nickell Robey-Coleman as the next men up to step into extended action at cornerback. Webster will finish the 2017 campaign with 38 tackles, seven passes defensed and an interception across 11 contests.
Webster was designated doubtful to return after being carted off the field in the first quarter, in what looks to be a potentially serious injury. Nickell Robey-Coleman and Troy Hill have seen increased workloads in his absence Sunday.
Webster is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Eagles with an ankle injury, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Webster was carted off the field in the first quarter of Sunday's game, and seems likely to be ruled out at some point. Nickell Robey-Coleman has shifted to the outside for the Rams, with Troy Hill stepping in as nickel cornerback.
Webster (concussion) has been cleared for Sunday's tilt versus the Saints.
Webster saw his workload increase at practice each day this week before ultimately landing on the injury report without any designation for Sunday's game. Barring any setbacks, the 26-year-old looks ready to resume his role starting at cornerback opposite Trumaine Johnson.
