Dahl to miss several weeks with knee injury

Former Fallon and Nevada standout Harvey Dahl left St. Louis’ game against Seattle on Monday with a medial collateral ligament injury in his left knee, according to Rams coach Jeff Fisher.

Fisher said additional tests were performed Tuesday to Dahl’s left knee.

“The big thing with the report we got back from the doctor was that Harvey’s going to miss some time,” Fisher told “[I] don’t know, a couple weeks, perhaps, with an MCL.”

St. Louis (3-5) hosts Tennessee on Sunday.
