  • Justin Lawler: Shifts back to practice squad

    Lawler reverted to the Rams' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transactions report.

    Lawler was elevated to the active roster for Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, so it's automatic that he now reverts to the practice squad. He notched one assisted tackle while playing nine defensive snaps.

  • Rams' Justin Lawler: Elevated to active roster

    The Rams elevated Lawler to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Lawler broke his hand during Week 2 and underwent surgery. His return to the active roster is a good sign, but he will likely be sporting a cast for at least a few weeks. The 26-year-old will likely assume his role as a depth inside linebacker who sees the field mostly during special teams.

  • Justin Lawler: Has surgery, removed from roster

    Lawler (hand) has reverted to the Rams' practice squad and is set to have surgery, per the NFL's transaction report.

    Lawler suffered a broken hand in Sunday's victory over the Colts. He managed to sustain the injury in just three defensive snaps. There is a chance he could still return to the roster in Week 3 depending on how capable the team feels he might be playing with a cast.

  • Rams' Justin Lawler: Suffers broken hand

    Lawler was diagnosed with a broken hand after Sunday's Week 2 win over the Colts, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

    Lawler was removed from Sunday's game in the first half, and a timetable for his return isn't yet clear. Chris Garrett (undisclosed) could see additional snaps as depth at linebacker once he's cleared to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

  • Rams' Justin Lawler: Injures hand Sunday

    Lawler (hand) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Colts, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Lawler injured his hand in the first half of Week 2. The majority of the 26-year-old's snaps in Week 1 came on special teams, so his absence shouldn't affect the Rams' defensive lineups.

  • Rams' Justin Lawler: Undergoes foot surgery

    Lawler (foot) underwent foot surgery Tuesday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Lawler played 30 defensive snaps as a rookie in 2018 and was mainly utilized on special teams. The 2018 seventh-round pick projected to remain in a depth role this year, but the Los Angeles linebacker corps does have a few question marks, so Lawler's absence could be felt. The severity of the injury and a return timeline are unknown at this time.
