AP source: Rams DL Easley to miss season with knee injury
IRVINE, Calif. (AP) A person with knowledge of the situation says Los Angeles Rams defensive lineman Dominique Easley is expected to miss the season with a torn knee ligament.
The source spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Wednesday because the Rams hadn't announced the severity of the injury for Easley, a likely starter this season.
Easley hurt his right knee during training camp on Tuesday and was taken off the field on a cart. Easley also tore ligaments in both knees during college at Florida.
After he finished two seasons on injured reserve with New England, he joined the Rams last year and had a solid season. He was expected to start in the Rams' new 3-4 defense.
ESPN first reported Easley's prognosis.
