Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee left Sunday's win over the New Orleans Saints with a chest injury, which turned out to be much more severe than initially thought. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Higbee's chest injury turned out to be an injury to his lung that caused him to cough up blood. Despite the gruesome status of his internal organ, Higbee isn't expected to miss much time.
Higbee was admitted to the hospital as a precaution. Higbee left the game in the second quarter, but never went into the locker room, the story added. With Higbee out, Everett should benefit from more time and possibly more targets.
LAR TE Tyler Higbee Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 15 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Tyler Higbee caught one pass for nine yards in the Rams’ Week 14 loss to the Bears. The entire L.A. offense struggled against Chicago’s vaunted defense but Higbee hasn’t done much since recording a season-high 63 yards in Week 11. Ranked as our TE24 for Week 15, avoid Higbee when the Rams host the Eagles on Sunday.
