Austin (knee) has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL and is expected to be sidelined for roughly two weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Austin twisted his knee during the first quarter of Sunday's game and didn't return following the incident. With Monday's MRI revealing a sprained MCL, he figures to be out a couple weeks. However, considering the Rams' Week 4 bye, owners may fortunately only be without Austin for next week's game versus the Cowboys. Nonetheless, while Austin is sidelined, Austin Pettis should move up St. Louis' depth chart at wide receiver.
Austin has an MRI on his knee scheduled, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Austin left Sunday's game against the Bucs in the first quarter with an apparent right knee injury.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Austin's knee twisted awkwardly under his body, after he took a hard hit near the head. It looked like a pretty serious injury, but the team has yet to provide an update, and the game was delayed by lightning shortly after Austin left. Should Austin fail to return, there could be some added opportunities for Austin Pettis, and perhaps even Chris Givens. Austin had no catches on just the one target at the time of his exit.
Austin had three catches on three targets for 34 receiving yards and three carries for five rushing yards Sunday against the Vikings.

2014

2013

The first skill player chosen in the 2013 draft, Austin isn't your prototypical wide receiver prospect. At 5-8, 174, he's one of the smallest players in the league, and unlike Carolina's Steve Smith, Austin doesn't have super strength or the ability to snatch the ball out of the air against taller defenders. What Austin does have is 4.34 40 speed, elite quickness and excellent vision in the open field. He can line up in the backfield as a runner, play in the slot or go outside. With the Rams letting Danny Amendola go, Austin is the favorite to be Sam Bradford's top target, and the Rams, who traded up to draft him, should be creative in finding ways to get Austin the ball.
