Los Angeles Rams young promising right tackle Rob Havenstein is having a bit of a rough offseason. He started off receiving high praise from the likes of Lance Zierlein of NFL.com and now training camp is here and he can’t get on the field.
According to Rams insider Myles Simmons twitter page the issue with Havenstein doesn’t seem to be a major thing.
However, that doesn’t mean it couldn’t end up being major. Lets not forget how last season E.J. Gaines foot injury was considered mild to start and then cost him his whole season. Robert Quinn with his back injury ended up being way more serious than first thought. So lets not dismiss the fact Havenstein’s foot injury is still a problem after last season.
Here’s an interesting tidbit that Simmons tweeted here.
That’s right, in relief former starting left tackle Rodger Saffold is back to tackle but it’s Cody Wichmann at left guard and not Garrett Reynolds who arguably was the best offensive lineman on the team last year outside of Havenstein. One thing is for certain though this offensive line is already worrisome to many fans but if Havenstein is out for an extended period of time the effects of that loss could be catastrophic for Jared Goff or Case Keenum and quite possibly even Todd Gurley.
The Rams don’t realize what they have in Havenstein and they won’t know until he’s gone.
