Sean McVay Says CB Robert Rochell Should 'be OK' Following Week 7 Injury

Sean McVay spoke about cornerback Robert Rochell's injury following the Rams' 28-19 Week 7 game against the Lions.

Rams cornerback Robert Rochell left the Week 7 game against the Lions after suffering a knee injury. While concern remained high given the importance of Rochell, it appears things have checked out well.

In talking with reporters following the Rams' 28-19, McVay said he believes Rochell will be OK.

“I think he’s going to be OK,” McVay said. “I haven’t talked to Reggie and his group, but I did talk to Robert. He said the initial tests checked out well, but I’ll be able to give you further clarity tomorrow.”

The rookie Rochell has started each of the last three games and played moderately well in that span. With Darious Williams on injured reserve and David Long Jr. playing his way out of favor, Rochell has become a key player on the backend of the Rams defense in recent weeks.
