Locker Room Buzz: St. Louis Rams
By Nick Wagoner
ST. LOUIS – Observed in the locker room after the St. Louis Rams’ 35-11 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Quick Fisher: Clearly unhappy with his team laying another egg, Rams coach Jeff Fisher wasted no time getting in and out of his postgame press conference. Fisher offered an opening statement and answered two questions, then took advantage of a short pause and exited quickly after expressing his disappointment in his team.
McDonald hurt: One question Fisher didn’t answer was on the status of safety T.J. McDonald, who exited the game in the third quarter with a leg injury. It doesn’t look good for McDonald, though. He was wearing an air cast on his right leg and left the locker room on crutches. It’s the third game in a row the Rams have had a player leave in such a state.
Searching for answers: It’s hard to have much buzz when you enter a somber, quiet locker room. Rams players deserve credit for facing the music, but nobody had any answers for why the team has nosedived so dramatically the past two weeks.
