  • Broncos' Micah Kiser: Slated to miss multiple weeks

    Kiser (groin) is expected to miss "a couple weeks," Ben Swanson of the Broncos' official site reports. Kiser sustained a groin injury in Thursday's loss to the Browns, and it's not yet clear whether he'll require a stint on injured reserve. Curtis Robinson and Barrington Wade should see an uptick in playing time in Kiser's absence.

  • Broncos' Micah Kiser: Suffers groin injury

    Kiser exited Thursday's game against the Browns with a groin injury and is questionable to return, Patrick Smyth, Chief Communications Officer of the Broncos, reports. Kiser left in the first quarter and was evaluated in the medical tent prior to going to the locker room. He has served primarily as a special-teams player to this point in the season, so his absence isn't likely to significantly effect the Denver defense.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Solid numbers before injury

    Kiser racked up 77 tackles (44 solo), three pass breakups and a forced fumble over nine regular-season games in 2020. Kiser emerged as a starting linebacker and a solid IDP fantasy asset before suffering a knee injury Week 11. He missed the remainder of the regular season, but he was back for Los Angeles' two playoffs games, so he should enter 2021 at full strength. Kiser, who managed 12-plus tackles in three of his appearances in 2020, looks primed to fill a starting role next season.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Out for season finale

    Kiser (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Kiser (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's walkthrough practice, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Kiser needed to be activated from IR to be eligible for a potential postseason appearance. According to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, he's not expected to play in the Week 17 matchup against Arizona, a notion that's backed up by his absence from practice to start the week. Kenny Young should continue to start at inside linebacker until Kiser is ready to play.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Returns from IR

    Kiser (knee) was activated off IR on Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Kiser will be a welcome addition to the Rams' defense ahead of Sunday's pivotal season finale against the Cardinals, the winner of which will be guaranteed a spot in the postseason. The linebacker has been a tackling machine when healthy, totaling at least six tackles in all but one of his nine games played this season while reaching double digits three times.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: May miss Week 12

    Coach Sean McVay said he'd be "very surprised" if Kiser (knee) plays Sunday against the 49ers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. The 25-year-old sustained the left knee injury during Monday's win over Tampa Bay and was unable to practice Wednesday. Based on McVay's comments, Kiser seems likely to be unavailable this weekend barring a significant improvement over the new few days. Justin Hollins or Troy Reeder are set to fill in at inside linebacker if Kiser is sidelined.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Still managing injury

    Kiser (groin) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice. Kiser was forced to miss last week's game against Washington with the groin issue, however, he appears to be gearing up for a return. The Virginia product had assumed a starting role this season before getting hurt, racking up 32 tackles (21 solo), three pass breakups and a forced fumble. If Kiser is forced to miss more time, Justin Hollins and Troy Reeder would be in line for an uptick in snaps.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Not able to go against Washington

    Kiser (groin) has been ruled out for the Rams' Week 5 matchup against Washington, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Kiser had been in the starting lineup Weeks 1 through 4 after failing to register a single start over his first two years in the league (though he did miss all of 2019 with a torn pectoral injury). The 25-year-old linebacker had already racked up an impressive 32 tackles through the first quarter of Los Angeles' regular-season slate, but now Justin Hollins will see increased usage at middle linebacker against Washington's 30th-ranked rush offense.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Status unclear for Sunday

    Kiser (groin) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus Washington, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Kiser logged his first practice Friday and operated in a limited capacity, so he has a chance to play Sunday. He's likely on the wrong side of questionable, however, and if he sits out, expect Justin Hollins and Troy Reeder to rotate in alongside starter Kenny Young.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Misses practice Wednesday

    Kiser (groin) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Kiser was declared day-to-day after leaving a Week 4 win over the Giants with pec and groin injuries. He was only listed with the groin injury Wednesday, but he's trending in the wrong direction by sitting out practice altogether. Fellow starting inside linebacker Kenny Young (knee) also missed practice, so Justin Hollins and Troy Reeder are slated to take first-team reps until the two return.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Considered day-to-day

    Kiser is considered day-to-day while battling both pec and groin injuries, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Kiser left the team's Week 4 contest against the Giants early. He had played 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps this season prior to the his exit, so if he is forced to miss the Rams' upcoming contest at Washington, there will be a big void in the middle of the defense.

  • Rams' Micah Kiser: Dealing with pectoral injury

    Kiser underwent an MRI on Sunday for a pectoral injury he suffered in Saturday's preseason game against the Cowboys, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports. The severity of the injury is unclear, and the Rams should provide an update on Kiser's timetable once they get the results of the MRI. Bryce Hager would be in line to start at inside linebacker should Kiser be forced to miss an extended amount of time.
