The St. Louis Rams top wide receiver Mark Clayton will be out for the remainder of the 2010 season. He suffered a torn patellar tendon in his right knee in the 1st quarter of Sunday’s game in Detroit. Not only does Sam Bradford lose his main go to man, but he and the team lost to the Lions 44-6. Not a good day for the “Show me State”.
“I got kicked right in the knee,” Clayton said according to the Post-Dispatch, “And as soon as he did it, [the knee] was like so hot and I couldn’t move anything, so it knew it was pretty serious.”
“I’d be lying if I said [losing Clayton] wasn’t big,” Bradford said of his fellow Oklahoma alumnus, according to the Post-Dispatch. “I think everyone has seen what he’s done for this offense the first four games of the season,” Bradford said. “So to lose him, it’s definitely going to hurt. But him going down just gives someone an opportunity to step up.”
“Coming in here, my goal was to give them everything — and everything that I had,” Clayton said. “To me, it’s God’s will. And in that manner, there’s peace, and joy, and comfort. So I’m all right, and I know everything will work out just fine.”
