The Rams received the worst possible prognosis, Friday, in regards to their No. 1 WR. Donnie Avery will miss the entire 2010 season with a torn ACL.
Avery crumpled to the turf after attempting to catch up to a deep pass from QB Sam Bradford with 1:32 remaining in the second quarter and was helped off the field.
Avery, who was playing well against New England before suffering the injury, was widely considered the top candidate to be Bradford's No. 1 wide receiver. With Avery out of the mix, it would appear Laurent Robinson probably is the best bet to become the team's primary receiver, although there is a large group of candidates that can't be ruled out, right on down to perhaps even newly acquired Danario Alexander, a University of Missouri product with strong local appeal.
