Barron is a key player for the Rams at linebacker, and his extended absence could be of some concern if it continues much longer. Without the team releasing details on his injury it's impossible to give him a timetable to return, and he should be considered day-to-day until more information is available. Jabriel Washington has been seeing time with the first-team defense during Barron's absence.
Barron burst onto the scene with 72 tackles in 12 starts last season, including a 16-tackle performance against the Browns. The converted safety looked right at home at linebacker last season, and could fill in nicely in Alec Ogletree's spot as he moves to middle linebacker.
After putting in a full practice Friday, Barron will be in the lineup at safety. On the season, he's recorded 105 tackles to go with a sack.
Mark Barron tallied six tackles (five solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
Although the St. Louis Rams defense struggled on Sunday, Barron played pretty solid as he helped create the only turnover the Cardinals would commit all day. The fourth-year linebacker-safety hybrid has amassed 86 tackles on the year with one sack and two forced fumbles.
Mark Barron racked up 10 tackles -- two for loss -- in a 27-6 victory over the 49ers on Sunday.
Since shifting to linebacker, Barron has put up 26 tackles and four tackles for loss in two games. If you're in desperate need for an IDP, Barron certainly has shown potential the last two weeks if you're willing to take the chance.
