  • Rams' Darious Williams: Dealing with shoulder issue

    Williams was evaluated for a shoulder injury Monday, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

However, there's been no word on the severity of the issue, so Williams' ability to practice throughout the week will give a more realistic idea of his potential to suit up. Across 14 games this season, he racked up 71 tackles with nine passes defended.

    Williams (ankle) was limited at Friday's practice, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Williams was a full participant Thursday, so Friday's limited workload is somewhat concerning.

    Williams played 47 of 49 defensive snaps and recorded two solo tackles and a pass breakup during Sunday's 28-17 loss to Miami.

  • Rams' Darious Williams: Questionable for Sunday's game

    Williams (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest at Buffalo. Williams operated under a DNP/LP/LP practice schedule this week, so the arrow seems to be pointing in the right direction for an appearance Sunday. The reserve corner so far has earned 46 percent of the Rams' snaps on defense through two games this season, which would fall in David Long's lap if Williams is inhibited or absent this weekend.
