Quinn logged just 11 snaps during the Rams' 17-10 loss to the Giants on Sunday.
Eugene Sims received the start since Quinn hadn't suited up since Week 4 due to a shoulder injury. With the Rams on bye in Week 8, though, it seemed the Los Angeles coaching staff was comfortable with almost exclusively deploying Quinn during obvious passing situations and not much else. However, with a week of rest to look forward to, Quinn should enter Week 9's matchup against the Panthers healthier and ready for his usual allotment of playing time.

Quinn is thus in line to draw the start at defensive end for the Rams on Sunday, which provides the team's pass rush with a nice boost. He last saw action in Week 4 and enters this weekend's action with seven tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles to his credit over four contests to date.

Despite being listed as limited on the injury report, Quinn was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday, so it would appear likely he's ready to play for the first time since Week 4. However, he might be a risky fantasy option because of the potential that his snaps are limited to ease him back in, and there is always the chance Quinn aggravates the shoulder injury.
Quinn was surprisingly inactive for last week's game against the Lions, but was a full participant in practice both Thursday and Friday, making it likely he'll suit up come Sunday.

Head coach Jeff Fisher is expecting his star defensive end to be ready for Sunday's tilt with Giants after the he was surprisingly scratched right before last week's game. Look for an official decision to be made closer to game time, with Eugene Sims waiting in the wings if Quinn were to see less action.
