In what is truly horrible news to report, Isaiah Pead's NFL career is over after the car crash he was involved in a few days ago.
It looks like the injuries that Pead suffered in the crash are so severe that it can be confirmed now that he will never play again. Whatever that injury is, it has yet to be reported, but has been described as "career-ending."
Speaking to reporters after the win over the New York Jets on Sunday, Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said that Pead's mother had called him to tell him the news.

Pead was drafted by Fisher and the Rams in the second round of the 2012 draft out of the University of Cincinnati, where he was a star for the Bearcats finishing his career there with 3,288 rushing yards on 545 carries with 27 touchdowns.
Pead spent three years with the Rams, where he mainly played on special teams and provided backup for the likes of Tre Mason and Zac Stacy.
He was signed by the Dolphins in March of this year, but was released by the team a month ago.
