Quinn underwent surgery to his hand and won't practice until training camp, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN reports.
It's unclear why exactly Quinn had surgery, but the team doesn't appear concerned about his health to this point. It is anticipated that he'll return for the start of training camp without limitation.
Quinn is expected to play right outside linebacker this season, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.
The move has the potential to free up Quinn for more tackle opportunities and possibly even allow him to penetrate the line more frequently to pressure the quarterback. However, the biggest virtual boon will be his eligibility as a defensive lineman, as the linebacker position typically has a higher weekly fantasy floor and ceiling.
Quinn (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Quinn was already listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Seahawks, but the team has now elected to effectively shut down the defensive end with the Rams' season all but over. Look for Eugene Sims to get the start at defensive end the rest of the way in Quinn's absence.

Quinn did not participate in practice throughout the entire week up to this point, and he may be in line to miss his fourth game of the season as a result. If he's ultimately ruled out, expect Eugene Sims to get the start at defensive end with Ethan Westbrooks providing additional depth.
Quinn was able to log a full practice last Friday, but ultimately was ruled inactive for Sunday's loss to the Falcons. He'll hope to return to game action Thursday against the Seahawks.
