Rochell (wrist) isn't listed on the Rams' injury report Wednesday. Rochell is finally off the injured list and appears ready to fill a supporting role in the Rams' secondary. The cornerback will likely see minimal snaps behind Darious Williams in Sunday's season opener against the Bears.
Rochell (wrist) is able to do a lot of individual drills at full speed, but he requires a cast when participating in full-speed drills with teammates, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports. The fourth-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft projects to battle for playing time in a new-look Los Angeles secondary. Cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and Darious Williams are set to retain their starting jobs with Rochell likely slotting into a supporting role.
Rochell suffered a wrist injury Thursday and will undergo surgery this week, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Despite the need for surgery, Rochell isn't expected to face a significant absence. The rookie fourth-round pick will have about six weeks to get healthy before the start of the regular season.
