The St. Louis Rams lost their strong safety, rookie T.J. McDonald Thursday night in their loss to the San Francisco 49ers with a fractured leg, reports Chris Wesseling of NFL.com. McDonald got his leg tangled up in traffic during the their quarter, appearing to run into DE Gerald Rivers at the end of a 3-yard run by Frank Gore. He was fitted for an air cast and carted off the field. McDonald, a third round pick out of USC, had been the team's starter since week one. Matt Giordano replaced him on the field and was immediately taken advantage of by 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and tight end Vernon Davis on a 12-yard TD.
