Rams LB Josh Forrest Has ACL Tear?

Josh Forrest‘s promising rookie season could be coming to a premature end. The team fears that he has torn his ACL, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Josh Forrest (vertical)

Taken in the sixth round of the 2016 draft, Forrest has taken on a larger-than-expected role, appearing in all ten games this season and even making four starts. On the year, he has six total tackles, one pass defensed, and one fumble recovery.

Forrest has positioned himself as Alec Ogletree‘s top backup at middle linebacker and the team will probably look to add a linebacker if he is in fact done for the season. The Rams can stay in-house, if they choose, by promoting either Nicholas Grigsby or Lynden Trail from the practice squad.

In other Rams news, the team COO says that there are no hurdles in potentially bringing the Chargers to L.A. And, late last week, cornerback Troy Hill was arrested for a DUI.
