Lombardi: The Fisher factor
Sources familiar with the situation told Flanagan after the game that the Rams fear Amendola, who was seen with his right arm in a sling, broke his collarbone. Amendola will have a CT scan on Friday morning.
"Ya, it's big, I'm not gonna lie," Rams quarterback Sam Bradford told Flanagan after the game. "Obviously, he's a big part of the offense. A lot of what we do runs through him. He went down last year, and it really hurt us. I feel confident about our guys we got this year, and I think it just opens up a spot for someone to step up and make some plays."
Amendola, who's coming off a major elbow injury that cost him nearly all of the 2011 season, was shown by NFL Network cameras in the bowels of the Edward Jones Dome letting out a loud yell before firing his helmet against the wall.
Rams safety Quintin Mikell also left in the second quarter with a head injury and missed the rest of the game. He originally was listed as questionable to return.
