Position Listing
Jerome Couplin
The Eagles declared quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone), cornerback Bradley Fletcher (hip), safety Jerome Couplin, wideout Jeff Maehl, offensive linemen Dennis Kelly and Julian Vandervelde, and defensive end Taylor Hart inactive for Sunday's game at the Giants.

With Fletcher inactive, corner Nolan Carroll will start.

Kevin Short
Short failed to make the Jets' final roster on Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Short was competing with Bryson Keeton and Marcus Williams for the backup right corner role, with the latter winning the competition. The 24-year-old recorded five tackles in four preseason games.

Cory Littleton
No Updates
Rodger Saffold
Saffold entered concussion protocol in the aftermath of Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

With the Rams out of the playoffs this year, Saffold will look to return to full strength in time for the start of the 2017 season. Barring some sort of serious development, that shouldn't be a problem.

Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brandon Wegher
Wegher was among the Panthers' final roster cuts Saturday.

Wegher's release was perhaps the Panthers' most noteworthy from a fantasy perspective, as he was competing for a spot in the team's running back rotation. However, after totaling merely 83 rushing yards on 32 preseason carries, Wegher didn't do enough to make Carolina's regular season roster. Upon his release, the Panthers will carry starter Jonathan Stewart, Cameron Artis-Payne, Fozzy Whittaker and fullback Mike Tolbert as their backfield options.

E.J. Gaines
Gaines (thigh) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice session.

Gaines missed the Rams' past two games due to his thigh injury but his full participation indicates he's over the issue and will play in Saturday's tilt against San Francisco.

Tavon Austin
Austin caught just two of four targets for 18 yards and rushed twice for two yards during Sunday's loss to Arizona.

After scoring nine touchdowns in 2015, the writing was on the wall for a letdown from Austin this year. He didn't do enough with his 19 extra targets to make up for the expected negative touchdown regression, and he rushed 24 fewer times and for 275 fewer yards than last season. Austin's game-breaking ability -- and hefty salary -- should ensure he's a piece of the puzzle again in 2017, but without a significant step forward from the entire offense, his fantasy ceiling will remain low.

Cam Thomas
The Steelers signed Cam Thomas to play defensive end in their 3-4 scheme, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Thomas primarily played nose tackle for the Chargers. He could still see snaps at the nose in Pittsburgh, the report said.
Mike Thomas
Thomas (hip) was active for the Rams' season finale Sunday against the Cardinals.

After missing last week's game versus the Niners, Thomas garnered just one target Sunday, which he secured for 15 yards.

Benny Cunningham
Cunningham (neck) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Cunningham had already been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Seahawks after failing to practice throughout the short week, but the team has now elected to shut down Cunningham with the season nearing its conclusion. Malcolm Brown and Chase Reynolds would be in line to backup Todd Gurley, while Mike Thomas will likely return kicks with Cunningham out.

Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Nelson Spruce
The Rams designated Spruce (calf) to return from injured reserve Friday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Spruce practiced this week for the first time since landing on IR in November. However, according to the report, Spruce will not be eligible to play in Sunday's game versus the Cardinals.

Calf - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jared Goff
Goff has been working with renowned quarterback coaches Tom House and Adam Dedeaux in Los Angeles this offseason, ESPN's Alden Gonzalez reports.

Goff's teaming up with House and Dedeaux comes after last year's top overall pick endured a rocky rookie campaign that included just five touchdowns versus seven interceptions in seven games played. Over that span, Goff averaged the fewest yards per attempt (5.31) in the league, but by working with House and Dedeaux, whose list of clients includes Matt Ryan, Drew Brees and Eli Manning, Goff will hope their program's focus on conditioning, mechanics, nutrition and the mental side of playing quarterback can translate into an improved second season.

Temarrick Hemingway
Hemingway (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hemingway is the Rams' fourth tight end, so he'll likely remain inactive most weeks unless one of the team's other options at the position is out with an injury. The rookie has made three appearances this season, but is still looking for his first career catch.

Jake McQuaide
Several Rams who were on the injury report are active for Sunday's game at San Diego. The list includes tight end Cory Harkey (quadriceps), linebacker Daren Bates (groin), linebacker Will Herring (foot), linebacker James Laurinaitis (foot) and linebacker Jake McQuaide (back).
Johnny Hekker
The NFL unveiled the Pro Bowl rosters for 2014Friday, and they come with a twist; for the first time, selections were made without regard for conference. The teams will be chosen via televised draft Jan. 22.

The special teams selections are as follows:

Punter: Brandon Fields, Dolphins; Johnny Hekker, Rams.

Placekicker: Matt Prater, Broncos; Justin Tucker, Ravens.

Punt returner: Antonio Brown, Steelers; Dexter McCluster, Chiefs.

Special teamer: Justin Bethel, Cardinals; Matthew Slater, Patriots.

Chase Reynolds
Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson suffered a concussion during Sunday's game and will go through the league's concussion protocol this week, reports ESPN.

Meanwhile, Chase Reynolds sustained a knee injury and will need more examinations before the severity is determined.

Cory Harkey
Harkey has been placed on the injured reserve with a triceps injury, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN reports.

Harkey injured his triceps working in practice on Friday and was unable to play in Week 14. His absence will likely open up work for Temarrick Hemingway at tight end.

Triceps - Questionable for the start of training camp
Paul McRoberts
No Updates
Josh Forrest
Forrest (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Vincent Bonsignore of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

It seems as if the move to the IR cements the suspicion that Forrest tore his ACL on Sunday, although the team has yet to comment on specifics of the injury. The 24-year-old recorded nine tackles, one pass deflection, and one fumble recovery in 10 games, primarily on special teams.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Sean Mannion
Mannion is trending toward handling backup duties to starting quarterback Jared Goff (concussion) on Saturday against the 49ers, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

On Tuesday, Goff handled a full allotment of reps at practice, after which interim head coach John Fassel stated the rookie has entered the final stage of the concussion protocol. Goff will thus have three days to meet with an independent neurologist and gain clearance for game action. If the preceding occurs, as expected, Goff will assume his typical mantle, while Mannion usurps veteran Case Keenum as the Rams looks toward the future.

Tyler Higbee
Higbee did not garner a target and played just 12 offensive snaps in Week 17 against Arizona.

After receiving 15 targets over the previous six games, Sunday was the first time since Week 10 that the rookie wasn't looked at in the passing game. It was further disappointing because Higbee had scored his first career touchdown in Week 16. The Rams invested a fourth-round pick in Higbee, and the Western Kentucky alum has plenty of potential, but he'll also have to steal more work from Lance Kendricks to gain any fantasy value in 2017. Additionally, until there are signs of major improvements from the entire Los Angeles offense, it will likely remain a dire situation for the passing attack.

Stedman Bailey
Bailey (head) has been waived by the Rams with a non-football injury designation, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Bailey suffered a pair of gunshot wounds to the head last November, underwent surgery soon after, and has been working relentlessly to return to the field since. Unfortunately, his release from the team suggests the Rams don't believe his NFL career can continue much longer. Should he clear waivers, NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported that Bailey is expected to rejoin the team in a non-playing role.

Head - Out for the start of training camp
Cassanova McKinzy
McKinzy was waived by the Buccaneers on Monday, the team's official site reports.

Despite a strong first impression, McKinzy's hamstring issues seem to have suffocated his roster chance. The rookie's inability to perform at the same high level that he had prior to his hamstring setback is what likely prompted this move.

Kevin Peterson
No Updates
Kenny Britt
Britt, who is an unrestricted free agent this offseason, is not anticipated to return to the Rams, ESPN's Alden Gonzalez reports.

Britt posted career-highs in receptions (68), targets (111) and yards (1,002) despite dealing with mostly dreadful quarterback play this past season. While that success makes the timing of Britt's impending free agency rather opportune, new Rams coach Sean McVay may prefer to pursue more consistent receiving threats, including a pair of wideouts he coached in Washington, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. That scenario would likely result in Britt signing elsewhere, potentially giving the 28-year-old a chance to pair with a more reliable quarterback, but likely within an offense less dependent on Britt to cover its deficiencies.

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Trumaine Johnson
Johnson (ankle) will play in Sunday's game against the Panthers, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

Johnson was able to be a full participant during Friday's practice session, so his availability for Week 10 comes as no surprise.

Aaron Donald
Donald was the highest-rated interior defender in the NFL during the 2016 season, according to Pro Football Focus.

It was also a monster fantasy showing for Donald, as his 47 tackles (36 solo), eight sacks and two forced fumbles provided a high-end return at the defensive line position. Entering his fourth season in the league next year, there is potential for further growth in the real and virtual game for Donald. He should be one of the first defensive linemen off the board in IDP formats in 2017.

Bryce Williams
Williams has missed several days of practice with an undisclosed injury.

Clearly behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the Patriots' tight end depth chart, Williams is competing for depth slotting at the position along with Clay Harbor, A.J. Derby, Steven Scheu and Bear Pascoe.

Cody Wichmann
Wichmann (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 6 matchup with the Lions, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Wichmann picked up an ankle injury in last week's game against the Bills, but it ultimately won't keep him off the field in Week 6, though he only practiced once this week in limited fashion.

Pace Murphy
No Updates
Maurice Alexander
Alexander (concussion) was active for the Rams' season finale Sunday against the Cardinals.

Following a two-game absence due to a concussion, Alexander compiled five tackles and one interception in his return.

Jamon Brown
Brown (hand) was not included on Wednesday's injury report, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

Brown was inactive in Week 9 due to complications from his surgically-repaired hand, but looks like he will be available Sunday as a reserve option along the Rams' offensive line.

Marqui Christian
Christian (ankle) was placed on IR Tuesday, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

Christian injured his ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's game, though the specifics of the injury remain unclear. The issue isn't thought to be severe and shouldn't limit him in the slightest once offseason work roles around.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
T.J. McDonald
McDonald (wrist) was removed from the Rams' injury report.

McDonald was reported to be day-to-day with his wrist injury after last week's game against the Seahawks but he appears to be over the issue now and shouldn't be held out any further due to the injury, barring setbacks.

Alec Ogletree
Ogletree recorded a career-high 136 tackles during the 2016 season.

Unfortunately, Ogletree slowed down at the end of the season and registered just 24 stops (18 solo tackles) through the final four games. Still, the 25-year-old linebacker was a high-end IDP option with a reliable fantasy floor outside of his underwhelming finish. Looking ahead to 2017, if Ogletree can provide more of the playmaking ability he's flashed at times throughout his first four seasons, the fantasy star could elevate his stock even higher.

Eugene Sims
Sims (concussion) will be active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Rams' insider Myles Simmons reports.

Sims was forced out of the Rams' Week 10 contest against the Jets due to a possible concussion, but he's since been able to clear through the league's protocol and will be good to go in Week 11.

David Arkin
The Colts waived running back Dion Lewis and signed defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles off the Patriots' practice squad. Indianapolis also signed guard David Arkin to its practice squad while releasing guard Josh Walker from the squad.
Darrell Williams
Williams (undisclosed) spent the 2016 season on injured reserve.

Williams ended his rookie season in 2015 on injured reserve due to a dislocated wrist, but it isn't clear what sort of injury is to blame for his IR sentencing this time around. He's still under contract with the Rams for another year but the team could save money by letting him go in the offseason.

Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Troy Hill
Hill hurt his knee in the Rams' season finale Sunday against the Cardinals, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

It isn't clear how severe Hill's injury may be. Nonetheless, the Rams' season is over and Hill will have plenty of time to return to full strength prior to the start of summer OTAs.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brandon Shippen
No Updates
Michael Jordan
Jordan (concussion) was listed as a full participant in Thursday's practice, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Jordan went down last week against the Seahawks. However, his full participation Thursday suggests he isn't in line to miss any time.

Ethan Westbrooks
The Rams have listed CB E.J. Gaines, TE Justice Cunningham, OL Barrett Jones, OL Brandon Washington, TE Alex Bayer, DT Alex Carrington and DL Ethan Westbrooks as inactive against the Seahawks.

Gaines was the only player listed on the injury report. He was considered doubtful due to a concussion. The other six players listed are healthy scratches. 

Brian Quick
Quick caught just two of his seven targets for 15 yards and failed to find the end zone for the 12 consecutive game Sunday against Arizona.

The 27-year-old receiver had a respectable five-game run (16 receptions for 326 yards and three touchdowns) leading into the Rams' Week 9 bye, but he faded considerably down the stretch, and especially after Jared Goff was named the starter. Through Goff's seven starts, Quick had just 15 receptions for 143 yards and failed to find pay dirt. After Los Angeles drafted two wide receivers in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Rams might let Quick walk via free agency, so his fantasy value is in limbo until he inks a new deal.

Zach Laskey
Laskey (undisclosed) was placed on the Rams' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

It's still unclear what Laskey is suffering from, but the Rams were evidently impressed with his potential as a fullback. He'll tryout for the team once again ahead of the 2017 campaign.

Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Robert Quinn
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.

Concussion - Questionable for the start of training camp
Greg Zuerlein
Zuerlein only kicked 19 field goals and 23 extra points during the 2016 season.

The Los Angeles offense finished last in both yards and scoring and did absolutely no fantasy favors for Zuerlein. If there is any silver lining, at least his accuracy improved following his poor 2015 showing where he converted just 20 of 30 field-goal attempts. Without significant improvements from the Rams' offense, Zuerlein is unlikely to morph back into a reliable fantasy asset, especially considering he's only connected on 39 field-goal attempts the past two years.

Morgan Fox
Fox was signed to the active roster Saturday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Fox has stood out in practice and has been subsequently added to the active roster. Fox will likely serve as a special teams asset.

Tim Barnes
Barnes (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Barnes missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with the injury, but was able to log a limited session Friday, which was enough for the Rams to sign off on his availability. He'll start at center as he usually does.

Pharoh Cooper
Cooper caught 14 of 20 targets for just 106 yards during the 2016 campaign.

The rookie was off the fantasy radar all season, but he did show some encouraging work over the final three weeks averaging 23.08 yards per kickoff return. Additionally, he caught 10 of 12 targets in his final four games, albeit for just 7.9 yards per reception. With Brian Quick and Kenny Britt both hitting the open market, there could be an opening for Cooper to climb the depth chart next season. However, it'll be difficult for the former Gamecock to showcase any big-play ability without the entire Los Angeles offense improving significantly. After all, the Rams finished in the basement in both yardage and scoring.

Mark Barron
Barron finished the 2016 season with a career-high 118 tackles (91 solo).

While Barron's fantasy value took a hit after losing his eligibility at strong safety, he still produced strong fantasy numbers and was a rock-solid option in the majority of seasonal leagues. There is also room for him to improve his sack (one) and interception (two) totals, which would make Barron a weekly high-floor, high-ceiling contributor.

Reggie Northrup
No Updates
Lance Kendricks
Kendricks caught a career-high 50 passes this season, and his 499 receiving yards were the second-highest total through his six years in the league.

It could have been a banner year across the board, as prior to Jared Goff taking the starting reins, Kendricks was producing decent fantasy results -- especially in PPR settings. From Week 4 through Week 9, the 28-year-old tight end caught 26 passes for 255 yards and a score over a five-game stretch, but it went downhill quickly with the rookie quarterback running the offense. Kendricks finished the campaign with just 17 catches for 168 yards over the final seven weeks. The veteran still has two more seasons on his current contract, but he'll likely have a difficult time becoming a reliable fantasy asset because of the state of the Los Angeles offense and the potential emergence of 2016 fourth-round tight end Tyler Higbee.

Marquez North
North (undisclosed) was placed on the Rams' injured reserve list on Tuesday.

North's placement on IR may explain why he didn't see a single snap in any of the Rams' first three preseason contests as he may be suffering from a nagging or recurring soft-tissue injury. Nonetheless, whatever the injury may be, North will now have ample time to return to full health in advance of the 2017 campaign.

Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Bryce Hager
Hager (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice.

The second year linebacker projects to back up Alec Ogletree this season. His status for Monday's season opener against the 49ers will depend on if he can clear the NFL's concussion protocol. If he cannot play, Josh Forrest will likely slide into the backup role.

Matt Longacre
Longacre (heel) was removed from Los Angeles' injury report.

Longacre missed the Rams' loss to Seattle last week due to his heel issue but he appears to be recovered now. He should be expected to play in Saturday's matchup with the 49ers.

Case Keenum
Keenum (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Cardinals, Myles A. Simmons of the team's official site reports.

The second-year signal-caller will once again take a seat and leave the quarterbacking duties to Jared Goff and Sean Mannion.

Michael Brockers
Brockers (groin) is slated to play in Sunday's tilt against the Panthers, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

Brockers' Week 10 status wasn't too iffy after practicing in full on Friday, despite missing practice earlier in the week due to the minor groin issue.

Rob Havenstein
Havenstein (ankle) was inactive for the Rams' season finale Sunday against the Cardinals.

Havenstein injured his ankle last week against the Niners, but the severity of which remains unspecified.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Malcolm Brown
Brown rushed 18 times for just 39 yards and caught three passes for 46 yards during the 2016 season.

With Benny Cunningham headed for free agency, Brown projects as the No. 2 back behind Todd Gurley for the 2017 campaign. Los Angeles could bring in reinforcements through free agency or the draft, and a new coaching regime could also shake things up, but Brown projects as the next man up at this point. In deep dynasty/keeper leagues, speculatively owning Brown could reward if he opens next season as Gurley's handcuff.

Nicholas Grigsby
No Updates
Bradley Marquez
Marquez (knee) was placed on injured reserve Friday, ESPN reports.

Marquez was an effective special teams player for the Rams and will finish the season with three receptions for 37 yards.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Blake Countess
Countess signed a contract with the Rams on Friday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

With Nelson Spruce (calf) placed on injured reserve Friday, Countess brings Los Angeles back to having a full, 53-man roster. However, it isn't clear where he slots in on the depth chart given the complicated positional arrangement of the Rams' secondary.

Lamarcus Joyner
Joyner (ankle) was inactive for the Rams' season finale Sunday against the Cardinals.

Joyner ended the 2016 campaign with two consecutive DNPs but should return in full form next season.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Brian Randolph
Andrew Donnal
Donnal (hip) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Patriots, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Donnal was limited during the Rams' last two days of practice this week, but the hip injury won't prevent him from dressing in Week 13. He'll work in a backup role at right guard behind starter Cody Wichmann.

Dominique Easley
Easley (illness) will play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Rams' insider Myles Simmons reports.

Easley missed some practice time this past week due to illness but was never expected to miss game time with the injury after he practiced fully on Friday. He likely won't be limited at all.

Cody Davis
Davis is questionable for Week 5 due to a groin injury.

Davis was limited in practice Friday after sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday. If he's unable to play on Sunday look for Marqui Christian to see a few extra reps.

Isaiah Johnson
Johnson was signed by the Buccaneers on Monday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Johnson spent his entire rookie season on the Bucs' practice squad, but he'll be given an opportunity to compete for the active roster throughout the upcoming offseason.

Greg Robinson
Head coach Jeff Fisher said Robinson (not injury related) will be "ready to roll" this week against the Patriots, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

Robinson was a healthy scratch last Sunday against the Saints because Fisher said "he needed a break". Thus, it appears his benching was merely a motivational tactic.

Todd Gurley
Gurley tallied 14 carries for 40 yards and secured four of five passes for 37 yards during Sunday's 44-6 loss to the Cardinals.

Embedded within the least explosive offense in 2015, both in terms of scoring (14.0 points per game) and yardage (263 yards per game), Gurley had little room to operate in his second NFL campaign. Amazingly, after opening his career with 100-yard rushing efforts in four of his first five contests, he's accomplished the feat just one time (Week 14 of last season) in his last 24 outings, a span in which he's averaged 59 yards per game at a clip of 3.4 YPC. On a positive note, he hauled in multiple receptions on 10 occasions this season, at least helping the cause in PPR formats. Although he was operating with disappointing 2016 first overall pick Jared Goff and a bruised and battered offensive line for much of the year, the implementation of a scheme more suited to Gurley's talent will likely have the greatest impact on his prospects moving forward, assuming the new coaching staff is so inclined.

William Hayes
Hayes (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Panthers, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Hayes sat out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to participate in limited fashion on Friday as he dealt with the ankle issue. He's slated to start at defensive end opposite Robert Quinn.

Aaron Green
After sitting out of last week's win over the Chiefs, Green has returned to practice and will likely take the field Saturday against the Broncos, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

Green, an undrafted rookie free agent, impressed in his preseason debut as he racked up 64 yards and caught the winning touchdown against the Cowboys. The Rams total nine running backs on their roster, but factor in injuries and Tre Mason's bizarre disappearance and Green has a shot to make the 53-man roster if he continues his impactful play. The rookie could get less opportunities in Week 3 as the starters are poised to stay on the field longer, making every carry Green gets that much more valuable.

Louis Trinca-Pasat
Trinca-Pasat (knee - ACL) resided on injured reserve for the entire 2016 season.

Trinca-Pasat, an undrafted second-year player out of Iowa, suffered a torn ACL last June and reverted to IR after clearing waivers. He's now set to hit free agency, but will certainly need to prove his health in order to receive another contract offer.

Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
