Rams coach Jeff Fisher expects LT Jake Long (ACL) to return "somewhere in the middle part of training camp."
Long is going to sit out all of June, but remains on pace for Week 1. Second-year UDFA Sean Hooey has been running with the first team, as the Rams want Rodger Saffold and No. 2 pick Greg Robinson to focus on guard. One of Saffold or Robinson would kick to the blindside on the off chance Long isn't ready for Week 1. Jun 5 - 4:39 PM

Rams LT Jake Long (knee) will sit out this week's minicamp.

Long's ACL tear happened two months after Sam Bradford's so he's a little further behind in the rehab process. Long also needed his MCL repaired. The Rams aren't worried though, and project to field a mauling offensive line this year featuring Long, No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson and Rodger Saffold.

ESPN's Adam Caplan stated on SportsCenter Wednesday morning that the Rams expect LT Jake Long (ACL, MCL surgery) to be ready for training camp.

"My understanding is Long will be ready for training camp," Caplan said. Long underwent knee surgery in January. While he remains a candidate to open camp on the active/PUP list, it might only be precautionary. Long's body has endured enough punishment that it would likely be in St. Louis' best interest to ease him back in slowly. Regardless, the 29-year-old's recovery is on schedule.

Rams LT Jake Long has undergone his ACL surgery.

Long tore his right ACL and MCL during Week 16. Doctors waited about a month for the MCL to heal on its own before going in and repairing the other ligament. Long is now in a race to get ready for Week 1 and right tackle Rodger Saffold is an unrestricted free agent. It's an area GM Les Snead needs to address this offseason.

Rams placed LT Jake Long on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Long tore his ACL and MCL in his right knee last Sunday and will be up against the clock to be ready for Week 1 of next season. Rodger Saffold will play left tackle this week against the Seahawks. Long has three years left on his four-year deal he signed in March. He bounced back to his previous Pro Bowl form in his first season with the Rams and will be back with them in 2014.

Rams LT Jake Long's Monday MRI revealed a torn right ACL and MCL.

"It was confirmed Jake [Long] has a torn ACL and MCL," coach Jeff Fisher said. Fisher also confirmed impending free agent Rodger Saffold will finish the season as the Rams' starting left tackle against the Seahawks in Week 17. Joe Barksdale will man right tackle. Chris Williams and Shelley Smith will handle the guard spots with Tim Barnes at center. Fisher has "confidence" in Long "coming back" from the injury. He's due $8 million in 2014, the second year of a four-year, $34 million deal. Long's status for the 2014 opener is completely up in the air.

Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed that the Rams anticipate LT Jake Long sustained a torn ACL in Sunday's win over the Bucs.

Expect official diagnosis of the injury following a Monday MRI. It's a massive blow to both Long and the Rams, who signed the four-time Pro Bowler to a four-year, $34 million deal in March. A hefty $4 million of that deal is guaranteed in 2014, making it unlikely the Rams will just cut ties. They'll hope both Long and Sam Bradford can get their torn ACLs right for the start of next year.

Rams LT Jake Long was forced from Sunday's game against the Bucs with a right knee injury, and will not return.

Rodger Saffold has kicked over to left tackle for the Rams. Long's knee buckled in non-contact fashion, which is never a good sign. He was then carted to the locker room. According to FOX, the Rams "fear" Long has a torn ACL. Injury prone his final few years in Miami, Long had yet to miss a game this season, but suffered a concussion in Week 13. Long has had a strong bounce-back campaign in the first season of a four-year, $34 million contract.

Rams LT Jake Long (concussion) has been cleared to start in Week 14.

It's good news for Zac Stacy, though his matchup remains daunting at Arizona. Pro Football Focus has graded Long as a top-five left tackle on the year.

Rams LT Jake Long (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It puts Long on track to start Sunday's game against the Cardinals, but he has a few more hurdles to clear. His status should be updated sometime in the next 48 hours.

Rams LT Jake Long was forced from Sunday's Week 13 game against the 49ers with a head injury and will not return.

Long and Zac Stacy banged heads in the third quarter as they both tried blocking the same defender. Both players were on the ground, though Stacy was helped up quickly. Long remained on the turf before eventually being guided to the sideline. Rodger Saffold has shifted from right guard to left tackle. Shelley Smith is in at right guard. Long likely has a concussion.

Rams LT Jake Long left Thursday night's Week 4 game against the 49ers with a knee injury.

Long's knee bent backwards after giving up a sack late in the second quarter, but he managed to walk off the field under his own power. His return is listed as probable.

Rams LT Jake Long says he's the healthiest he's felt going into a season in "probably three years."

A laundry list of nagging injuries sent Long's play plummeting to mediocrity over his final couple seasons in Miami. If Long is truly 100 percent, it's fantastic news for Sam Bradford and Daryl Richardson. "Jake Long, I've never seen him look better," said former scout Gil Brandt after visiting Rams camp.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero heard from "multiple places" that the Dolphins offered Jake Long more money than the Rams.

Long signed a four-year, $34 million deal with St. Louis that included $16 million guaranteed. "More money" can be a subjective term in the NFL because of the labyrinth manner in which most contracts are structured, but it would be extremely surprising if Long took less guaranteed money from the Rams than the Dolphins were offering. The only logical explanation would be an extreme disconnect with the Dolphins' front office.

News Rams LT Jake Long (triceps) is "almost" 100 percent.

"He’s very close," coach Jeff Fisher said. "We expect to have him on the field in mid-OTAs." Fisher insists the Rams have no long-term concerns about Long's health. "We think he’s got a lot of good snaps left. No question. He fought through some injuries, and I think his production dropped because of it. But there’s no reason he doesn’t get back to 100 percent." If Long can't reverse his recent health trend, the Rams are going to have a really bad contract on their hands.
