Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan does not have surgery scheduled at this time for a fractured orbital bone below his left eye. And contrary to initial indications, it looks like Finnegan will not need surgery. In other words, the fracture will heal on its own. Finnegan’s rehab work is going very well, according to a source close to Finnegan. Finnegan suffered the injury in the Rams’ Thursday night loss to San Francisco on Sept. 26 at the Edward Jones Dome, although he didn’t disclose the injury until nearly two months later. He missed the next three games, with what was listed as a hamstring injury, then returned to play in the next three games — versus Seattle, Tennessee and Indianapolis. But the symptoms persisted, including double vision, and Finnegan was placed on the injured-reserve list Nov. 23, the day before the Rams’ 42-21 victory over Chicago.
Finnegan probably will not need surgery
