Alec Ogletree (leg) returned to practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Prior to suffering a fractured fibula in Week 4, Ogletree was a force in the tackle department, notching two sacks among 42 tackles in less than a quarter of the season. In the meantime, he's focused on rehabilitation, but an appearance at practice has opened the window to activation from the IR/designated-to-return list, which must occur in order to play in Sunday's season finale at San Francisco.
Alec Ogletree (broken leg) is slated to return to practice next week and has an outside chance of playing Week 17, Joe Lyons of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Ogletree was leading the team in tackles before going down, but the St. Louis Rams will not risk him coming back for a meaningless game if he's not 100 percent. The fact that he may be ready for the end of this season does at least bode well for him being prepared for the 2016 campaign, however.
Alec Ogletree (leg) has been placed on IR/designated to return, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.
Ogletree suffered a fractured fibula in Week 4 and isn't expected to be ready before December. He seems no better than 50-50 to make it back this season, but the St. Louis Rams don't have any other candidates for the lone spot on IR/designated to return.
St. Louis Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree underwent surgery Tuesday on a fractured fibula and will be miss at least eight weeks, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
What was initially termed an ankle injury has been confirmed as a broken leg, threatening the remainder of Ogletree's season. He was easily on pace to achieve a third 100-tackle campaign in a row to kick off his career. However, his absence will make way for Akeem Ayers to serve as the Rams' weak-side linebacker.
St. Louis Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree will need ankle surgery and may miss the rest of the season, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Ogletree will either be placed on injured reserve/designated to return or season-ending injured reserve. He can safely be ruled out through November, and can therefore be dropped in IDP leagues. It's a big loss for the Rams, with some combination of Akeem Ayers , Bryce Hager and Cameron Lynch likely to take on Ogletree's snaps.
