Atwell recorded eight receptions on 12 targets for 62 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos.

Atwell has been absent from large portions of training camp, first as a result of being on the reserve/COVID-19 list. More recently, he was sidelined by a back issue. However, neither impacted his ability to rack up plenty of targets in the preseason finale. Atwell made the majority of his catches around the line of scrimmage, contrasting with his expected usage based on his 4.44 40-yard speed. His longest reception of the day went for 16 yards, though that was his only double-digit gain of the day. In addition to his duties as a wide receiver, Atwell served as the Rams' punt returner. Although his roster spot is secure, it's unlikely that Atwell will see a lot of targets to begin the regular season in a Week 1 matchup against Chicago.
