Jamon Brown of the Los Angeles Rams was reported injured and out for the season after sustaining an injury to his hand. According to Rich Hammond of the OC Register, Brown was inactive in Week 9 due to complications from his surgically-repaired hand, but looks like he will be available Sunday as a reserve option along the Rams’ offensive line.
Brown underwent surgery on his hand during the Rams’ bye week but claims he will be ready to play Week 9, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
If Brown was indeed able to return to action against the Panthers, he will provide depth along the Rams’ offensive line. Unfortunately, Brown was not able to play against the Panthers on Sunday November 6th.
Rich Hammond wrote that Brown actually suffered a spiral fracture to the fourth metacarpal in his left hand during practice that week and didn’t play against the New York Giants. He had surgery last week after the team returned home.
“Honestly, it was just playing football, [during a community NFL event in London]” Brown said. “I was in practice and I felt my hand kind of pop. I thought it was jammed and I tried to continue with practice. Once I found out that I couldn’t, that’s when they rushed me to get X-rays and I found out I had a spiral fracture.”
According do Dr. Shadi Amin of Coast Spine Medicine, “unfortunately, for injuries like this there is very little that can be done with PRP once the bone has become separated. We wish Jamon Brown the best of luck with his recovery and rehabilitation. “
