Sims (concussion) will be active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Rams' insider Myles Simmons reports. Sims was forced out of the Rams' Week 10 contest against the Jets due to a possible concussion, but he's since been able to clear through the league's protocol and will be good to go in Week 11.
Sims (concussion) will not return to Sunday's contest against the Jets, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports. Sims is still being evaluated for a possible concussion, so he won't be able to return to game action until Week 11 against the Dolphins if he's cleared. Ethan Westbrooks figures to see an expanded role at defensive end in Sims' absence.
Sims is being evaluated for a concussion, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN reports. Sims took a blow to the head in the second quarter of Sunday's game. Should he not be able to return, expect Ethan Westbrooks to see additional snaps at defensive end for the Rams.
Sims recorded a sack and three solo tackles during Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Sims played just 26 of 64 (41 percent) of the Rams' defensive snaps, and he'll likely continue to see fewer opportunities with Robert Quinn receiving an increase in playing time following his shoulder injury. Sims' three starts this season all came with Quinn inactive or limited, after all. It's likely best to view Sims' breakout game as more of a blip on the radar than a sign of things to come.
Sims has signed a three-year, $10 million deal to remain with the Rams, NFL.com reports. 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.
