As if the Los Angeles Rams' performance against the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night wasn't bad enough,

The defending champions lost some offensive players to injuries.

Earlier this Friday, it was announced that the rookie running behind Kieran Williams suffered an ankle sprain.

They can be kept away from that injury for up to six weeks.

Several hours later, it was revealed that Rams center Brian Allen had undergone a procedure on his knee.

This will force him to miss anywhere from two to four weeks.

Right guard Coleman Shelton would move to center during Allen's absence.

Tremayne Anchrum Jr. will then be inserted into the lineup starring on the right guard.

Allen, a former Michigan State fourth-round player, played 100 percent of the Rams' offensive snap on Thursday night.

Even with Allen in the lineup, the Rams struggled to pocket Matthew Stafford.

Sean McVay's offensive line gave the Bills seven sacks last night.

Now that Allen is out for at least a few weeks, the Rams will need to get creative with how to defend Stafford.
