LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Former Utah and current Los Angeles Rams safety Terrell Burgess was carted off the field in the fourth quarter on Monday Night Football.
Burgess was having the best game of his young career when he was forced to leave the game with an ankle injury. The former Utah safety injured his ankle when he attempted to tackle Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery. His leg got caught underneath him and bent awkwardly.
The Rams training staff put his leg in an air cast and took him to the locker room where he was ruled doubtful to return to the game by the Rams medical staff.
