Rams WR Alexander out 2-4 weeks

Danario caught his first career NFL touchdown pass on this play in his first game as a Ram

Rams and former Missouri WR Danario Alexander will have another surgery on his troublesome left knee (this his 5th surgery on the knee). Alexander re-injured the knee in practice on Friday, but there is some concern that the knee was already injured before today’s incident in practice.

At this point, the Rams need to place Danario on the IR and allow him to fully return to health before the Rams or Alexander and tempted to rush him back into game action. He probably pushed his knee too far in his one breakout game and is back under the surgeon’s knife.

This is precisely the scenario that prevented Danario Alexander from getting his name called on draft day and the reason that every team but the Rams passed on picking him up after the draft.

Best of luck to Alexander in his recovery. His NFL career will only go as far as his 5 time surgically repaired knee will take him. The Rams need to be extra careful with him even more now that they signed him to a 4 year deal when he was moved up from the practice squad.
