Rams lose Quick, Saffold to injuries vs Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The St. Louis Rams lost wide receiver Brian Quick and right guard Rodger Saffold to injuries just two plays apart early in the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Quick hurt his shoulder while getting tackled near the Kansas City sideline on the first play of the Rams' drive, and Saffold hurt his shoulder while blocking for running back Zac Stacy.

Both of the players were questionable to return.

The Rams' offensive line continued to sustain injuries later in the game. Center Scott Wells left in the third quarter with an elbow injury, shortly before left tackle Jake Long walked slowly off the field with an undisclosed injury.

The Rams were already playing with a depleted defensive backfield. Starting cornerback Janoris Jenkins and backup Trumaine Johnson were inactive with knee injuries.

The Chiefs lost cornerback Jamell Fleming to a hamstring injury early in the second half.
