Kayvon Webster Ruptures Achilles’ Tendon

Vying for position in a crowded NFC playoff picture, the Rams are likely going to have to go the rest of the way without one of the starting cornerbacks.

Kayvon Webster suffered a torn Achilles’ tendon during Sunday’s game against the Eagles, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports (on Twitter).

Sean McVay confirmed Webster ruptured an Achilles’ tendon, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com notes (on Twitter).

Webster went down in the first half and was deemed doubtful to return because of an ankle injury, per Vincent Bonsignore of the Los Angeles Daily News (on Twitter). But it appears the fifth-year player’s setback is far more significant. Webster sent out a somewhat ominous tweet, at least regarding his possible near-future status, during the second half.

Webster’s started all 10 games he’s played as a Ram, doing so after being a backup throughout his four-year Broncos tenure. He intercepted a pass — his first as a Ram and first since his rookie season — and deflected another.

The Rams have used a top corner trio of Webster, Trumaine Johnson and Nickell Robey-Coleman this season. They have seven cornerbacks on their 53-man roster presently.
