Easley out for season
A person with knowledge of the situation said 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.
