Atwell could be in line to receive an extended opportunity Sunday as the Rams' No. 4 receiver against the Texans, as DeSean Jackson has recently requested a trade, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Although coach Sean McVay reportedly criticized Atwell for his lack of urgency recently, the receiver could potentially see a larger role Sunday, especially if the Rams' starting receivers face any injuries. With DeSean Jackson not playing Sunday, the only other receiver on the Rams' roster behind Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Van Jefferson is Ben Skowronek. Expect Atwell to see some offensive snaps Sunday against the Texans.
