  • Rams' Tutu Atwell: Falls out of starting role

    Atwell finished the 2023 regular season with 39 receptions for 483 yards and three touchdowns and five rushes for 31 yards.

    This season was supposed to be the next step up for the big-play threat, and in his first four games he looked like he was on that path as he put up an impressive 22-270-1 receiving line. Things went downhill from there, however, as Atwell put together just 11 catches for 197 yards and two touchdowns over his next seven games before losing his starting role to Demarcus Robinson. In the Rams' playoff loss to the Lions, Atwell burned past Kindle Vildor for a 38-yard touchdown but didn't get another touch the rest of the way, similar to the final six games of the regular season with just 40 snaps on offense before being used as a starter in the season finale with Puka Nacua, Cooper Kupp and Robinson all getting rest. Atwell has one year remaining on his rookie contract, but with Nacua and Kupp now entrenched as the top two targets for Matthew Stafford, it'll be difficult for the Louisville product to carve out a role beyond the third or fourth option at wide receiver.

  • Rams' Tutu Atwell: Miserable day as starter

    Atwell caught two of four targets for seven yards and rushed once for minus-4 yards during Sunday's 21-20 victory against San Francisco. He also recorded a two-point conversion.

    With Cooper Kupp (coach's decision) out and Puka Nacua and Demarcus Robinson's time on the field capped to keep them healthy for the playoffs, Atwell took the field for 64 of the Rams' 67 snaps on offense, his highest snap share since Week 8 against the Cowboys. Despite the increased role, Atwell managed only a pair of short gains on his two catches, and another pass attempt from quarterback Carson Wentz went straight through Atwell's hands and was intercepted by 49ers safety Tayler Hawkins. While a 39-483-3 receiving line over 16 games this season is an improvement over the Louisville product's rookie campaign, it still has to be considered a disappointment given the expectation of a much bigger role for Atwell. The rise of Robinson in recent weeks as a starter alongside Kupp and Nacua has relegated Atwell to a backup role entering the playoffs.

  • Rams' Tutu Atwell: Cleared for Thursday

    Atwell (concussion) doesn't have a designation for Thursday's game against the Saints.

    After Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Monday that Atwell cleared concussion protocol, the wide receiver then was listed as a full participant on all three of the Rams' Week 16 injury reports. Atwell thus will work behind starting wide receivers Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua on Thursday, an arrangement that hasn't afforded the third-year pro many looks in the passing game when the latter two players are available. Kupp and Nacua have played in every game since Week 5, resulting in Atwell settling for a cumulative 15-206-2 line on 28 targets over his last nine contests.

  • Rams' Tutu Atwell: Listed as full on practice estimate

    Atwell (concussion) was a full participant at Tuesday's walkthrough, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Atwell was listed the same way on Monday's practice estimate, but the Rams actually logged some on-field work one day later. There's an expectation from Sean McVay that Atwell will return from a one-game absence Thursday at New Orleans after making his way through the concussion protocol as of Monday, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. Nevertheless, Atwell has surpassed 30 receiving yards just twice over his last 10 appearances en route to a cumulative 20-230-2 line on 37 targets and two carries for eight yards during that stretch.

  • Rams' Tutu Atwell: Expected to play Thursday

    Coach Sean McVay said Monday that Atwell (concussion) is expected to play Thursday versus the Saints, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Atwell has cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol.

    Atwell wasn't able to suit up for Sunday's win over the Commanders while working his way through the protocol for head injuries, but he's been cleared for Week 16. In his last four appearances, Atwell has failed to surpass three targets, so he'll likely work in a depth role behind Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua on Thursday.
