Injuries piling up for Rams in opener

The regular-season opener is proving to be a costly one for the St. Louis Rams.

Running back Steven Jackson suffered a quadriceps injury early in the game and did not return. Adam Goldberg replaced Jason Smith at right tackle after Smith suffered an injury to his left ankle.

Receiver Danny Amendola just left the game and was favoring his left arm.

Quarterback Sam Bradford has taken significant punishment in this game as well, but he has remained in the lineup. One hit in particular, a direct shot to the knee that drew a penalty flag, appeared dangerous.
