  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Busy against 49ers

    Rapp recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) and a sack during Monday's 31-10 loss to San Francisco.

    There's been some weekly peaks and valleys for Rapp this season, but he's playing nearly every defensive snap and providing a decent floor for deeper IDP settings. Just note, the Rams are on a bye this week, and he might not be worth stashing on benches until Los Angeles' Week 12 matchup with the Packers.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Pair of picks

    Rapp recorded five tackles, two interceptions and three passes defended in Sunday's 38-11 win over the Giants.

    Rapp recorded his first interceptions of the season, picking off Daniel Jones once in the second quarter and once in the third quarter. He has also racked up 41 tackles through six games, good for second on the team.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Clear of injury designation

    Rapp (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

    Rapp was limited on Monday's and Tuesday's injury reports, but he was able to practice with no limitations Wednesday. The 23-year-old is enjoying a productive season so far for the Rams with 35 tackles (23 solo) and a half-sack through four games.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Limited again Tuesday

    Rapp (ankle) was a limited participant at Tuesday's walkthrough, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Rapp apparently picked up the injury during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals -- when he tallied 12 total tackles (six solo) -- and he's been listed as a limited participant the first two days of the week. The 23-year-old has played nearly every defensive snap for the Rams this season and appears on track to play Thursday in Seattle.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Keeps churning out tackles

    Rapp posted nine tackles and a half sack in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Colts.

    Rapp has played all but one defensive snap through two games, and he leads the team with 19 tackles. The 2019 second-round pick posted 100 stops as a rookie but took a step back in 2020 due to injuries. It looks like he's back on track for triple digits in 2021.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Tallies 10 tackles

    Rapp posted 10 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 34-14 win over the Bears.

    After competing with Jordan Fuller for the starting role last year, Rapp and Fuller both started in Week 1 and combined for 21 tackles. Rapp registered 100 tackles, eight pass breakups and two interceptions over 15 games as a rookie starter in 2019.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Full-go at minicamp

    Rapp (knee) was a full participant in June's mandatory minicamp, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

    Rapp generated 100 tackles as a rookie in 2019, but he was demoted in Week 1 of the 2020 season after rookie sixth-round pick Jordan Fuller won the starting job out of training camp. Rapp eventually regained his starting job and finished with 44 tackles through nine games before a knee injury ended his season in Week 10. With John Johnson signing in Cleveland, Rapp is the favorite for the starting strong safety job in 2021.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Solid before injury

    Rapp (knee) had 44 tackles (32 solo), three pass breakups, one interception and one forced fumble across nine games in 2020.

    Rapp missed the Rams' final seven regular-season games due to a knee injury, and he was also unable to return for either of the team's postseason tilts, but it seems like should be on track for the tentative start of offseason workouts. With John Johnson bound for free agency and perhaps out of Los Angeles' price range, Rapp could be asked to handle an expanded role at safety in 2021.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Expected to miss another game

    Rapp (knee) likely won't be activated from injured reserve for Thursday's game against the Patriots, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

    This would be Rapp's first opportunity to return to action. Given he didn't practice Monday, he'll likely miss another week and eye a return Week 15 against the Jets. Jordan Fuller will continue to start at strong safety in Thursday's game.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Destined for injured reserve

    Coach Sean McVay said that Rapp (knee) has a Grade 2 ligament sprain and will go on IR, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Rapp was forced to exit Sunday's win against the Seahawks, and it seems probable he will be on the shelf for at least a month. The Rams are hoping that the second-year safety can return to the field in short order, though Rodrigue reports his absence will likely extend four weeks or more. Four of Rapp's five starts on the season have come since Week 6, recording 44 tackles, one forced fumble and one interception during that span. In his absence, Jordan Fuller will be thrust into a prominent role at the strong safety position.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: MCL sprain likely

    Rapp (knee) is believed to have suffered a sprained MCL in Sunday's win over Seattle, and he will get an MRI to confirm that diagnosis, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Recovery times for MCL sprains vary, but Rapp will likely be facing a multiweek absence if the MRI confirms the injury. The safety is a key cog on defense for Los Angles, as Rapp had played 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps in three consecutive games prior to Sunday's injury.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Done for the day

    Rapp (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Eric D. Williams of reports.

    Rapp was initially listed as doubtful after sustaining his knee injury, so to see him officially ruled out Sunday doesn't come as much of a surprise. Jordan Fuller will lock down the Rams' strong safety position as long a Rapp remains sidelined.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Likely won't return Sunday

    Rapp was forced out of Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a knee injury, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Rapp isn't expected to return to Sunday's game. The second-year safety dealt with a knee injury during training camp as well, and it's possible that this is related. Jordan Fuller will handle the strong safety position for the remainder of the contest.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Secures nine tackles

    Rapp finished with nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 24-16 loss to the 49ers.

    Rapp bounced back after registering just two tackles in Week 5. He's recorded 33 total tackles through the first six games of the 2020 campaign and will take the field in Week 7 against Chicago.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Leads team in tackles

    Rapp posted eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Giants.

    Rapp played every defensive snap because Jordan Fuller (shoulder) remained out of the lineup, and he ended up leading the team in tackles for a second straight week. A knee injury has been deemed one of the major causes for Rapp's demotion to a reserve role in favor of Fuller, but perhaps the 2019 second-round pick's recent performance will allow him to retake the starting gig.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Takes advantage of playing time

    Rapp recorded seven tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 35-32 loss to Buffalo. He played 55 of 62 defensive snaps.

    Starting safety Jordan Fuller (shoulder) was injured in the second quarter and didn't return during Sunday's contest, so Rapp saw an uptick in playing time and turned in a solid fantasy showing. Rapp was selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, started 10 games and racked up 100 tackles for the Rams last year. However, a preseason knee injury allowed Fuller to usurp Rapp for the starting job. Their fortunes may be reversed now. If Fuller misses time, Rapp should return to being a respectable fantasy option in most IDP settings.

  • Rams' Taylor Rapp: Potential demotion

    Rapp played behind rookie sixth-round pick Jordan Fuller against Dallas on Sunday, finishing with just three tackles to Fuller's team-leading eight.

    Jourdan Rodrigue of the Athletic reported that coach Sean McVay said Rapp, a presumed starter going into 2020, was not injured. McVay also said "Rapp continues to be a huge part of" the Rams defense, but it's hard to see how Rapp plays much if Fuller is logging starter-level snaps. Rapp posted 100 tackles on 834 snaps as a rookie second-round pick last year, so if he was demoted in favor of Fuller, then it's a rather shocking turn.
