Jake Long, the St. Louis Rams left tackle, is counted on to help protect the Rams quarterbacks. However, it appears like the veteran may have another serious knee injury.

Long, it appears, may have suffered his second torn ACL in the past 10 minutes. The Rams believe that he tore his ACL in the team’s 34-7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

He’ll undergo an MRI this evening, which is expected to confirm the injury. It’s the same knee that he suffered another torn ACL in last season.

Long signed a four-year, $34 million contract with the Rams in March 2013 after leaving the Miami Dolphins. With his injuries, one has to say that he’s been a free agent bust so far.

With these injuries that are hurting his body, the team may release him in the off-season. He’s scheduled to make $9.25 million next season with only $4 million guaranteed.

With Rams are expected to turn to rookie Greg Robinson, who was the team’s second overall pick, to help protect Austin Davis’ blind side. Rodger Scaffold may have received the call, but he’s dealing with a shoulder injury.

Robinson has been the left guard. However, he’s practiced as the left tackle in September.
