For the second consecutive day Thursday veteran wide receiver Kenny Britt and veteran defensive end Robert Quinn missed practice, putting their status for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in jeopardy.
Britt, who has dealt with injuries all throughout his career as he has played all 16 games just three times in his seven-year career is currently dealing with a thigh injury.
The 28-year-old currently leads the team with 18 catches and 281 yards through the teams first four games and has been quarterback Case Keenum’s most trustworthy pass catcher on third down.
In 2014 Britt led the Rams with 748 receiving yards and 15.6 yards per catch, and in 2015 he had a career-high 18.9 yards per catch. Britt was a first round selected by the Tennessee Titans out of Rutgers in 2009.
Much like Britt, the veteran Quinn was also sidelined for the second consecutive day with a shoulder injury.
Quinn has bounced back nicely in 2016 after a rough 2015 in which he had to undergo back surgery. In four games this season Quinn has six tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles, including the game-winning strip-sack of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 2 to help secure a 9-3 victory.
The 26-year-old was a Pro Bowler in both 2013 and 2014, along with being name an All-Pro in 2013 when he had a career-high 19 sacks.
The severity of both players injuries is unknown, but if they do not get in at least a limited session ahead of Sunday’s game they could end up sitting the game out.
If Britt is not able to go it would give an opportunity for either Pharoh Cooper or Nelson Spruce. Both rookies were healthy scratches in Week 4.
