Los Angeles Rams defensive end Morgan Fox will miss the 2018 season after reportedly tearing his ACL in Thursday’s practice.
A team source told the Orange County Register that Fox sustained a serious injury, and the NFL Network, citing a source, reported it was a torn ACL.
An undrafted free agent signed by the Rams in 2016 out of Colorado State-Pueblo, Morgan barely saw the field as a rookie before making a substantial contribution last season.
The 6-foot-3, 275-pound Fox appeared in all 16 games, making one start, and registered 19 tackles, 2.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
At Tuesday’s practice, which marked the first day of organized team activities, the Register reported that Fox was receiving first-team repetitions at outside linebacker.
