Los Angeles Rams defensive end A’Shawn Robinson and Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis were placed on injured reserve on Saturday.
The IR designation requires the former Alabama alumni to miss at least the next four games. But Rams coach Sean McVay said Robinson will miss the rest of the 2022 season.

“He ended up, unfortunately, tearing his meniscus,” McVay said on Wednesday, “and so he will be out and that will require surgery, so we’ll be missing him for sure.”
After helping the Rams win the Super Bowl LVI to cap the 2021 campaign, Robinson had started all 10 games in his second season with Los Angeles.
Robinson had 42 tackles, 10th among the league’s defensive linemen, in 2022. He sustained the injury in Sunday’s 27-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints, when he played a season-low 16 defensive snaps.

Armour-Davis has been dealing with a hip injury.
The former St. Paul’s Episcopal star joined the Ravens in the fourth round of the NFL Draft on April 30. But after playing 50 defensive snaps and 42 special-teams plays in the first three games of the season, Armour-Davis missed five games before appearing on special teams in a 27-13 victory against the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 7.
But Armour-Davis had not practiced or played since that game.
