EDGE Terrell Lewis (knee) dealing with injury flare-up

For more than a year, Los Angeles Rams fans endured the saga of former RB Todd Gurley's knee threatening and impacting the Rams' 2018 Super Bowl run and subsequent 2019 season. So you probably don't need to tell Rams fans how severe the impacts of a knee injury can be to the team's plans and ultimately their roster.

So it would be understandable if Rams fans are on edge following the news that rookie EDGE Terrell Lewis is dealing with a knee issue:

Not the best way to close out camp especially after the recent news of a season-ending injury to ILB Travin Howard.

Lewis, the 84th overall selection as a third-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, has missed the last two days of practice as the Rams close out camp and get ready to begin their preparation for Week 1 when the Rams host the Dallas Cowboys for the first ever game at SoFi Stadium, Sep. 13.

Lewis tore an elbow ligament in 2017 and his ACL prior to the 2018 season resulting in him missing 25 games total while at Alabama. Rumors surfaced prior to the draft that Lewis had failed nearly half the NFL's medical check.

Hopefully, whatever he's dealing with is minor, and the Rams can get their oft-injured rookie on the field early this season. The Rams certainly need his talent in the mix for a weak edge group this year.
