Rams coach Sean McVay reveals when Tyler Higbee suffered his injury

Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee suffered a lung contusion during his team’s win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, a gruesome-sounding injury that is enough to make anyone queasy.

Rams head coach Sean McVay, known for his incredible memory, recalls exactly when the injury to Higbee occurred.

“It was on the play on the right corner where he and Eli Apple went up for a ball,” McVay said, according to Steve Rebeiro of Rams Wire. “Jared (Goff) threw a corner route to him and it was on that play.”

Higbee, who caught two passes for 21 yards in the victory and has logged six catches for 41 yards on the season, was coughing up blood at halftime and was taken to the hospital.

As bad as it sounds, McVay says that Higbee is doing just fine.

“He’s feeling good,” McVay said. “He’s asymptomatic with that in terms of the nuances and those things. He’s feeling good and that’s why he’ll be day-to-day.”

As for when Higbee will return? McVay isn’t sure.

“Whatever the doctor’s orders are, what’s in the best interest of Tyler is exactly what we’ll follow,” McVay said. “What that means as far as this week, the following week – we’ll have a little bit more updates as we go.”

Higbee, who played his collegiate football at Western Kentucky, was originally selected by Los Angeles in the fourth round (110th pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Through 50 regular-season games, the 26-year-old has hauled in 66 passes for 713 yards and five touchdowns.

The Rams will take on the Cleveland Browns this Sunday.
