Rams' Austin Trammell: Serves as primary return man
Trammell caught four passes for 29 yards, returned six kicks for 101 yards and 25 punts for 183 yards during the 2023 regular season. He also fumbled three times.
The return numbers for the third year wideout and special teams contributor were meager compared to his contemporaries in the league (for reference, Keisean Nixon led the NFL with 782 kick return yards), and three fumbles also stands out as a worrisome stat. The Rams' special teams unit as a whole struggled mightily in 2023 between kicking woes and a lack of production in the return game, and while Trammell is an exclusive rights free agent, the Rams may not be keen on extending him a contract and could let him walk in free agency....

Rams' Austin Trammell: Handling special-teams role
Trammell played two snaps on offense and returned one kickoff for 22 yards and three punts for nine yards in Sunday's 37-31 overtime loss to the Ravens.
Since playing 71 percent of the Rams' snaps on offense in a Week 11 win over the Seahawks in which Cooper Kupp exited early with an ankle injury, Trammell has logged just six snaps on offense in total over Los Angeles' subsequent three contests. Even though the team's receiver depth took a hit with Tutu Atwell (concussion) exiting in the second quarter Sunday, the Rams turned to Demarcus Robinson and Ben Skowronek (ankle) before Trammell to handle reps alongside Kupp and Puka Nacua. Trammell should remain active on game days due to his role as the team's top kickoff and punt returner, but he's unlikely to see a substantial increase in playing time on offense even if both Atwell and Skowronek miss the Rams' Week 15 game versus the Commanders....

Rams' Austin Trammell: Sees big usage in win
Trammell caught three of six targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 17-16 victory against the Seahawks. He also returned four punts for 30 yards.
Despite being primarily used as a special-teams player by the Rams through most of the season, Trammell saw a significant amount of action Sunday when Cooper Kupp (ankle) went down with an injury. Trammell's 46 snaps from scrimmage more than tripled the amount of snaps he had taken on offense all season (13), and was more than his fellow backups Ben Skowronek (nine) and Demarcus Robinson (seven) had combined. Trammell's six targets were also just one less than Puka Nacua and Darrell Henderson, and an expanded role may be available for the versatile wideout if Kupp were to miss any additional time....

Rams' Austin Trammell: Gets in full practice Thursday
Trammell (hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.
Trammell sustained a hip injury on a punt return in Week 8 against the Cowboys. He was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, but his full participation Thursday indicates that he's trending towards being available for Week 9 against the Packers.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Austin Trammell: Sustains hip injury in loss
Head coach Sean McVay told reporters Monday that Trammell sustained a hip injury on a punt return in Sunday's 43-20 loss to the Cowboys, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.
Though it's unclear which punt play Trammell hurt his hip on, McVay noted that the wide receiver "should be okay." Trammell was signed to the Rams' active roster Oct. 7 after being elevated from their practice squad for three straight weeks and has operated mostly as a punt return specialist. His one punt return Sunday was for a five-yard loss.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Austin Trammell: Signed to active roster
The Rams signed Trammell to their active roster Saturday.
Trammell had been elevated from the practice squad each of the previous three weeks, so Los Angeles was required to sign him to the active roster in order to have him for gameday again. The third-year wideout has worked almost exclusively on special teams this year, logging just one offensive snap in Week 2 versus San Francisco. Trammell also saw some punt return work in Week 4, and he could be used in that role more often moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Austin Trammell: Returns to practice squad
Trammell reverted to the Rams' practice squad Monday.
Trammell played nine snaps on special teams and returned four punts for 15 yards in Sunday's overtime win against the Colts. Given this was the third time he was called up, the Rams will have to sign Trammell to their active roster if they wish to utilize him again this season.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Austin Trammell: Promoted to active roster
The Rams elevated Trammell to their active roster Saturday.
Trammell has played 11 special teams snaps in two contests this season. With this being the third time he has been elevated from the practice squad, the Rams would have to sign Trammell to their active roster following Sunday's contest against the Colts if they wish to play him for the remainder of the season....

Austin Trammell: Reverts to practice squad
Trammell has moved back to the practice squad after playing in Monday's game against the Bengals.
The wide receiver played five snaps on special teams and did not record a stat. Trammell played in Week 2 against the 49ers and saw one snap on offense.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Austin Trammell: Joins active roster
Trammell has been elevated to the Rams' active roster ahead of Monday's game against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Trammell was also bumped up from the practice squad in Week 2, so this most likely has little to nothing to do with Puka Nacua (oblique) being questionable for the contest. The former only saw one snap on offense during the Rams' loss to the 49ers, but he did carry out kick-return duties and may do so again in Monday's matchup with the Bengals.... See More ... See Less
Austin Trammell: Returns to practice squad
Trammell reverted to Rams' practice squad Monday.
Trammell was elevated ahead of Los Angeles' 30-23 loss to the 49ers, logging six snaps on special teams, including a 20-yard kick return. The wide receiver only garnered one offensive snap and will now have to wait for another chance to crack the active roster down the road.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Austin Trammell: Bumped up to active roster
Trammell has been elevated to the Rams' active roster ahead of Sunday's contest against the 49ers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
With rookie Puka Nacua (oblique) listed as questionable, Trammell has likely been called up as receiving insurance. Either way, he will presumably play just a depth role while being more likely to have an impact on special teams.... See More ... See Less
Austin Trammell: Earns chance on practice squad
Trammell was signed to the Rams' practice squad, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.
Trammell will join the practice squad in Los Angeles after failing to make the team's 53-man roster. The wideout appeared in six games for the Rams last season, totaling just 13 yards on two receptions. Trammell will practice with the team and provide depth to the Rams' wide receiver corps if the team needs him at any point throughout the season.... See More ... See Less
Austin Trammell: Cut Tuesday
The Rams waived Trammell on Tuesday.
Trammell took advantage of numerous injuries and appeared in six games for the Rams last year, securing two of four targets for 13 yards. If he clears waivers, the 25-year-old wideout would presumably be a practice-squad candidate.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Austin Trammell: Slight uptick in playing time
Trammell caught one of two targets for five yards during Thursday's 17-16 victory against the Raiders.
Trammell's second straight game on the Rams' active roster saw his snap count tick up to 12, a three-snap increase over his Week 13 count against the Seahawks. It was another mild performance from the 24-year-old, who currently sits along with Brandon Powell, Lance McCutcheon and Jacob Harris (shoulder) as depth pieces for the Rams behind Ben Skowronek, Tutu Atwell and Van Jefferson....
