Atwell wasn't targeted on his two offensive snaps and didn't play on special teams during Sunday's 34-14 win over Chicago.

It was a quiet debut for the rookie, and it's particularly telling that he wasn't utilized in a kick- or punt-returning role. Atwell projects to establish a specialty role in the offense over the course of the season because of his elite speed and game-breaking potential in space. However, it's clear he's not being rushed into action. The Rams have four capable receivers ahead of him on the depth chart, including proven speedster DeSean Jackson.
