A source tells PFT that Rams LT Jake Long indeed tore his right ACL in Sunday's loss at Kansas City.
He'll be placed on injured reserve. This is the same ACL that Long tore in Week 16 last season. So the four-time Pro Bowler, who was already declining toward average on-field levels, now faces another long rehab process. He's failing to return value on the four-year, $34 million deal the Rams gave him in March of 2013. No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson will slide to left tackle and Mike Person will likely slide in at guard. Oct 27 - 8:38 AM

Pro Football Talk reports the Rams believe LT Jake Long suffered a torn ACL in the team's Week 8 loss to the Chiefs.

The injury is likely season-ending. Long was solid in his first season with the Rams in 2013, but tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee Week 16 and has never been the same. It is not a given Long will return to an All-Pro level after two devastating knee injuries, but the Rams are unlikely to give up on a 29-year-old left tackle. Long is scheduled to make $9.25 million in 2015.

Rams LT Jake Long exited Week 8 against the Chiefs with a knee injury and is done for the day.

Long and RT Joe Barksdale were getting whipped by Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. One of the Rams' many free-agent busts, Long has been getting beaten badly on a weekly basis. No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson has kicked outside from left guard to left tackle. Mike Person is in at left guard.

Rams LT Jake Long (knee) was a full participant Tuesday's practice, and will be active for Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

Long is ready to return to Sam Bradford's blindside. Barring a setback in this weekend's regular-season dress rehearsal, Long will be all-systems-go for Week 1.
Aug 19 - 7:27 PM

Rams LT Jake Long (ACL) will sit out Friday's preseason opener.

It's quite possible Long will sit out the entire preseason, but he remains on track for Week 1. The Rams have nothing to gain by trotting their injury-prone blindside protector out in exhibition action.
Aug 5 - 8:54 PM

Rams LT Jake Long (ACL) took a "few repetitions" in team drills on Thursday.

Long did not participate in one-on-one pass-rush drills, but it's an important step in what's been a smooth recovery to this point in time. Barring a setback, Long is fully expected to man Sam Bradford's blindside come Week 1.

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.

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.
Jun 4 - 9:53 AM

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.
May 7 - 9:29 AM

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.
Jan 23 - 9:07 AM

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.
