King is inactive for Sunday's game against San Francisco.|||||||
King has a stinger to his neck and left shoulder.
King's rookie season is over before it started after he tore a ligament in his left big toe in Saturday night's preseason opener against Tennessee. The injury will require season-ending surgery.|||||||
King will be placed on injured reserve. The fourth-round draft choice from Penn State had made a strong early impression in camp and was working as the team's third cornerback against Tennessee. Thought to be more of a raw prospect than an instant contributor, King proved to be more ready for game action than originally thought. He was playing regularly in the team's nickel package against the Titans before coming out with about 2 minutes left in the first quarter.
The Rams agreed to terms Wednesday on a three-year contract with King, the team's fourth-round draft pick.|||||||
King, the 101st overall pick, played at Penn State, where he was an all-Big Ten first-team selection in 2007.
