  • Rams' Ernest Jones: Expected to land on IR

    Jones (ankle) underwent surgery Monday and is in line to land on the Rams' injured reserve, J.B. Long of the Los Angeles Rams Radio Network reports.

    Jones will presumably target a potential return to action during the postseason. His soon-to-be IR stint, which should be made official in the coming days, figures to free up an opportunity for either Christian Rozeboom or Travin Howard at inside linebacker.
