Tests On Rams CB Marcus Peters Negative For Achilles Injury, Has Calf Strain


Pro Football Talk reports that tests on Rams CB Marcus Peters were negative for an Achilles injury and he’s believed to be dealing with just a calf strain.

Even so, Peters will undergo an MRI on Monday to be certain.

The initial fear was that this could be a serious Achilles injury for Peters, but it sounds like it isn’t a season-threatening issue. Although, calf strains are known to linger, so we’ll have to see what the timetable is for him to return.

As for fellow Rams CB Aqib Talib, PFT reports that he’s dealing with an ankle sprain and is set to get a second opinion tomorrow.

Peters, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2015. The Rams acquired him from the Chiefs in exchange for a 2018 fourth-round pick.

Peters was entering the final year of his four-year, $9.584 million contract and set to make a base salary of $1,741,932 for the 2018 season when the Rams picked up his fifth-year option back in May.

Entering today’s game, Peters had recorded four tackles, an interception returned for a touchdown and a pass defense for the Rams.

We’ll have more regarding Peters as the news is available.
