The surgery comes with a five-month recovery timetable. It appears as if this shoulder injury was much more significant than the one he played through in 2014. Saffold should be ready for 2016 training camp.
Gaines has yet to play this season due to a quadriceps injury, but appears on track to change that in Sunday's matchup with the Cardinals. The third-year cornerback figures to provide depth in the secondary when he returns.
As usual, Austin was involved throughout, but he didn't make much of an impact until he scored from 43 yards out with just under five minutes to play. The touchdown was Austin's first of the season, as the Rams had struggled to generate much offense in their previous two games. The versatile wideout is always a threat to score, however, with his speed and play-making ability. He'll have a tough test in Week 4, facing the Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium.
The Middle Tennessee product remained largely uninvolved in the offense as bell cow RB Todd Gurley garnered 27 of the Rams' 33 rushing attempts. To boot, wide receiver Tavon Austin received just as many carries as Cunningham, though Cunningham did finish with more rushing yards because he took one of his totes for a team-high 22-yard scamper. It's hard to envision his role increasing moving forward, though, especially when considering he has now received just four carries on the season compared to 63 for Gurley. Ultimately, Cunningham appears to be just a handcuff for Gurley owners entering a Week 4 tilt against the Cardinals.
Spruce has been out of action since Week 1 of the preseason due to a knee injury. His full participation at practice Wednesday seems to indicate he is trending toward making his season debut on Sunday. However, he is buried on the team's depth chart, so his opportunities to take the field will be limited.
Following a healthy scratch to start his career, Goff has earned a promotion, though not the one many fans are hoping for. Case Keenum will get at least one more start, and while the Rams seemingly hope to keep Goff on the bench for quite some time, pressure may soon mount for the team to play its No. 1 overall draft pick.
Hemingway could have easily gone in the fourth or fifth round, so this looks like a nice value for the Rams. Hemingway (6-foot-5, 244 pounds) has good size and equally good athleticism, highlighted by his 4.71-second 40 and 6.88-second three-cone drill.
The special teams selections are as follows:
With Jared Cook gone, Harkey should play a larger role in the offense as the Rams love two-tight end sets. He only had five catches for 26 yards last season and is primarily a blocker, but should see at least a minor spike in production in 2016.
Forrest was a decent enough player at Kentucky, surpassing triple-digit tackles in 2014, but the Wildcat defense was a mess over that time frame, and Forrest's Combine showing was not good. With a 4.91-second 40 and weak jump numbers, Forrest might struggle to run in the NFL.
In what would've been considered a shocking twist just a few months ago, Mannion, a third-round pick in 2015, has been placed above the first-overall pick in 2016, Jared Goff, on the depth Chart. Mannion impressed in the preseason, finishing with 325 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception on 39-of-60 passing. That performance, combined with his extra year in the team's offense, is likely why he ended up as the primary backup.
Higbee's production is hardly mentionable, but it's worth noting that his four targets exceeded fellow tight end Lance Kendricks' three. A far more athletic player than Kendricks, Higbee could develop into a good target down the seam as a rookie, but judging by his performance both Monday and during the preseason, he'll need to improve his catch efficiency before expectations can get off the ground.
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.
Britt had easily been the team's most impressive offensive performer through the first two games, but that changed Sunday as Todd Gurley scored twice and other wideouts stepped up. While Case Keenum has struggled to move the ball and produce points, he's still leaned heavily on his big wideout, as Britt has seen 21 targets through three games. It's hard to imagine much success next week, however, as Britt will likely have to deal with CB Patrick Peterson at University of Phoenix Stadium.
Johnson has started each of the first three games of the season and sits with 18 tackles (15 solo) and a fumble recovery through the first three weeks of the season. His tackle total has increased in each game thus far, and he has played all but five defensive plays for the Rams this season.
Sensabaugh's deal with the team could be worth up to $19 million, with the 27-year-old cornerback coming off a 2015 campaign in which he recorded 60 tackles and two picks for the Titans. The addition of Sensabaugh helps offset the Rams' loss of fellow cornerback Janoris Jenkins to the Giants.
After a little bit of a midseason lull, Donald is back to his stellar self, with 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks his last two weeks. He continues to be a beast in the middle of the Rams' line and is already one of the top defensive tackles in the league.
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.
The Rams had previously stated they were going to bring Battle along slowly, but reversed course. St. Louis will lose its fifth-round pick in next year's draft.
Alexander was listed as questionable with a thigh injury for the Week 3 tilt but rarely left the field. The free safety has just 10 tackles (eight solo) this season with two passes defended despite playing all but five defensive snaps through the first three games of the season.
The incident occurred in May and led to McDonald's absence from OTAs. He's available for the time being, but a suspension could come down before the end of the season. A starter in each of his 38 NFL appearances, McDonald had eight tackles in a Week 1 loss to the 49ers.
Ogletree has now had back-to-back big games after notching 12 tackles in the season opener. it's hard to see him finishing outside the top-10 linebackers in fantasy production, though he has top-three upside.
After having recorded 24 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 13 games (including nine starts) for the Rams in 2015, Sims is not much of an IDP factor, but he does provide the team with valuable depth at defensive end in the wake of the departure of Chris Long.
Williams' release allowed for the Rams to promote fellow defensive back Isaiah Johnson from their practice squad. Williams hadn't yet appeared in a regular season game this season, but recorded 19 tackles (17 solo), one sack, five passes defensed, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles in 2015.
Hill played all but four of the defensive plays (96 percent) during the game, whereas previous starter Coty Sensabaugh only played on special teams. Sensabaugh was benched in Week 2 against the Seahawks, which elevated Hill up the depth chart Sunday. However, E.J. Gains (quadriceps) could return this week and upend the cornerback ranks again.
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.
The Rams entered Week 3 without a single touchdown to its name, but on the team's first possession on Sunday, Quick connected with QB Case Keenum on a deep route for a 44-yard score. Notably, that catch represented the first Los Angeles Rams touchdown since 1994. However, the former second-rounder was only targeted once afterword as fellow wideouts Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt largely commanded the rest of Keenum's attention for the remainder of the contest. Due to his nature as a low-volume receiver in a low-volume passing offense, Quick likely won't make for a viable fantasy option on a consistent basis moving forward, but his outlook definitely appears a little rosier than it did prior to this weekend since the team was finally able to show some sign of life on offense. Next up for Quick and the Rams is a Week 4 matchup on the road against the Cardinals.
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.
The 26-year-old defensive end played just eight games last year and failed to record double-digit sacks for the first time since his rookie season in 2011. He was eased back into action during the preseason following offseason back surgery, and he's played just 63.9 percent of defensive plays (152 of 238) through the first three games. However, with two sacks already, Quinn is well on his way to being one of the premier edge rushers in the league again. His 40 sacks from 2012 to 2014 ranked third in the league.
It appears the Rams are willing to give "Legatron" one more shot at turning things around after a disappointing 2015 campaign in which he converted just 20-of-30 field goal attempts and 26-of-28 extra point attempts. It's possible he will have some competition in camp as well, but Zuerlein will likely enter the favorite to retain the job.
"We’re not going to make a decision real early,” coach Jeff Fisher said, per StLToday.com. “We’ll let them all play. We’re rotating them. They’re all getting opportunities to work with (QBNick Foles), so he’s familiar, not only with the exchanges, but also the communication. We’ll make that decision when somebody shows us he’s earned the job."
The rookie returned to practice last week after dealing with a shoulder injury, but he has yet to take the field this season. He appears to be trending toward making his debut given his full participation in Wednesday's practice. His role figures to be limited however, as he is still behind Kenny Britt, Tavon Auston, and Brian Quick on the depth chart.
Barron logged a DNP in the second game of exhibition season but returned in the third, picking up his only three tackles of the preseason. The Rams trot out a six-man defensive backfield in which he serves as a pseudo linebacker. Consequently, the 100-tackle threshold is certainly in play for the second season in a row.
Kendricks' yardage total finished ranked third among his Rams teammates Monday, illustrating the clear struggle they had moving the ball. Even though Kendricks doesn't sport very much upside as a fantasy tight end, the offseason departure of Jared Cook figures to help him improve his numbers this term, no matter how hard to believe that may appear following Los Angeles' dismal season-opening outing.
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.
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.
After struggling to produce in each of the Rams' first two games of the season, Keenum finally threw a touchdown pass, including a back-breaking score to Tavon Austin late in the fourth quarter. While it was far from a perfect outing, Keenum also threw a pretty 44-yard touchdown to Brian Quick early in the first quarter, and had to deal with some drops throughout the game. With the No.1 overall pick Jared Goff waiting in the wings, Keenum must continue to make plays, or his time as the team's starter could be short. It doesn't get easier for Keenum in Week 4, as he'll travel to Arizona to play the Cardinals.
Brockers was a full participant in practice on Friday, a reassuring sign that his thigh injury is behind him. It's expected he'll be used in certain defensive packages on Sunday.
Brown was also targeted twice, but failed to catch a pass in Saturday's contest. His first carry came on Los Angeles' third offensive drive, while Benny Cunningham started at running back with Todd Gurley being rested once again. Although neither Brown nor Cunningham got much going versus Denver, they would seem to be the chief beneficiaries if Gurley were to get injured at all this season.
Marquez injured his ankle in the Rams' second preseason game and the team never clarified his status after that. His absence from the team's first injury report indicates that he's made a full recovery and he shouldn't be limited in Los Angeles' Week 1 matchup against San Francisco.
It is unclear what type of head injury Countess is dealing with or if he is showing concussion like symptoms. The 23-year-old rookie is currently projected as the backup strong safety. Expect an update on his status when more information is made available.
After starting in Week 1 and playing 98 percent of the defensive plays, Joyner has seen his snap count decrease in each of the past two weeks (82 percent in Week 2 and 74 percent in Week 3), and he hasn't started either game. Joyner's playing time could also decrease again in Week 4 with E.J. Gains (quadriceps) potentially returning from injury.
The nature of his ailment remains clouded, but Reynolds is now eligible to sign elsewhere.
Easley had a tryout with the Rams early on Tuesday morning, which obviously went well, as he's been signed to a one-year contract. Easley spent his first two years in the league with the Patriots, where he compiled 41 tackles and five sacks over 22 games. After being waived by the Patriots in April, he'll join the Rams 4-3 defense as an interior guy and will likely have to fight for snaps behind the likes of Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers. Easley did finish last season on injured reserve due to a leg injury as well, so it remains unclear if that may impact his training camp availability.
Janoris Jenkins, who was listed as questionable, will also give it a shot. Jenkins is dealing with a knee injury. Cody Davis will also try to play. He was questionable on the team's final injury report.
Tackle Jake Long is also bouncing back from surgery. Long tore his ACL seven games into the season. Fisher said that Long's rehab is "coming along" With Robinson's success at left tackle, the team is trying to decide where else on the line Long could fit in.
The game script for Gurley was favorable, as the Rams were competitive from the onset. It had been a rough start to the year for Gurley, who is still averaging under 3.0 YPC, and without much involvement in the passing game, but he finally got a couple of scores Sunday. After next week's tough matchup at Arizona, things do open up a bit schedule wise, with Buffalo and Detroit on the schedule between Weeks 5-6.
Hayes' injury does not appear to be too serious. A further diagnosis should yield a more clear indication of his status for next week.
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.
