The Los Angeles Rams’ official X account shared that TE Hunter Long has been deemed doubtful of returning because of a knee injury. That he had to be carted off the field does not bode well for the Rams, especially when one of their most reliable linemen has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

OL Rob Havenstein suffered a hip injury during the first quarter and had to be replaced by backup Joe Noteboom. Havenstein had earlier missed two back-to-back games in Week 8 and 9 due to a calf injury. And ever since he returned to the gridiron, he has skipped one practice day each week to recuperate. The Rams ended up losing both games that he had missed. The Ravens game turned out to be similar.

I am a hardcore believer in the ?Mamba Mentality?, which certainly applies to the NFL. The sport is not just about physical prowess but also demands a powerful mindset. Growing up, I spent time with athletes on the neighborhood soccer field.
