Running back Justin Forsett #29 of the Baltimore Ravens is helped off of the field after an injury in the first quarter against the St. Louis Rams at M&T Bank Stadium on November 22, 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland.

The struggling Baltimore Ravens (2-7) took a major hit Sunday when running back Justin Forsett was slammed to the ground and broke his arm.

Forsett, the NFL's 10th-leading rusher according to ESPN, was brought off the field in a cast after St. Louis Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald pummeled him on the field. 

The Ravens confirmed in a tweet that Forsett would be out for the game -- though it's possible the injury will put him out for the rest of season.  The Ravens leading receiver, Steve Smith Sr., who's out for the season after suffering an Achilles injury three weeks ago, tweeted his condolences to Forsett. 

If Forsett is out for the season, ESPN notes, he will be the fifth significant offensive player to go on injured reserve this season.
