Brockers recorded a season-high seven tackles (three solo) during Monday's 24-10 win over the Bears.
The veteran had one of his better games of the season Monday and showcased his fantasy upside. However, Brockers hasn't been a consistent contributor this year with 13 of his 24 tackles coming in just two games.
Brockers (ankle) passed a physical to finalize his three-year contract with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Brockers originally agreed to a three-year deal with the Ravens, but it later fell through because the team was concerned about an ankle sprain he suffered in Week 17 of last season. The Rams don't seem bothered by the issue and thus will keep their 2012 first-round pick in the fold.
Brockers (ankle) signed a three-year deal worth up to $31.5 million with the Rams on Friday after his reported deal with the Ravens fell through, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The 29-year-old reportedly agreed to a similar deal with Baltimore at the start of free agency, but something came up along the way that prevented the two sides from officially putting pen to paper. Brockers sprained his left ankle in the season finale and didn't require surgery, but it's possible the Ravens had concerns with the injury that held up the signing. The veteran defensive end had 63 tackles (34 solo) and three sacks in 16 games last season and is set to begin his ninth season with the Rams in 2020.
The Ravens and Brockers (ankle) agreed to a contract Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
The 29-year-old will head to a new team for the first time in his career after spending the past eight seasons with the Rams. Brockers sprained his ankle in the final game of the regular season against the Cardinals, but he's expected to be ready for training camp and didn't require offseason surgery. He racked up a career-high 63 tackles in 2019, and he'll likely slot into the starting lineup in the Baltimore front heading into 2020.
Brockers sprained his ankle in Sunday's matchup with Arizona but will not need offseason surgery, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
In addition to recovering from the injury, Brockers will also be looking for a new contract in the offseason, so not needing surgery is a silver lining for the 29-year-old. He finishes 2019 having played all 16 games for the third consecutive season, tallying a career-high 63 tackles (34 solo) and adding three sacks and one pass breakup.
Brockers exited on a cart with a left leg injury during Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
It's unlikely Brockers returns to this contest. The veteran defensive end achieved a career-high 64 tackles this year, and he added three sacks and a pass breakup as well. If Brockers is indeed unable to return, Morgan Fox and Tanzel Smart will split reps in his place.
Brockers (knee) was a full go at Friday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Brockers did not practice in any capacity on Wednesday or Thursday, but he nevertheless looks ready to suit up in Sunday's season finale. If Brockers' knee issue flares up, Morgan Fox is in line to take over at defensive end.
Brockers did not participate in Wednesday's estimated practice report due to a knee injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Brockers participated in only 39 defensive plays during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, his second-lowest total of the season. His presence on the injury report could explain his lessened availability, and also calls his status for Sunday's Week 17 matchup against the Cardinals into question.
Brockers posted a season-high eight tackles (four solo) and one sack in Monday's 45-6 loss to the Ravens.
Brockers had been held in check the previous two weeks against the Bears and Steelers, but the Rams' defense remained busy Monday while failing to contain Lamar Jackson and the Ravens' potent offensive attack. Brockers has logged at least 50 defensive snaps in four consecutive games.
Brockers recorded five tackles (four solo) and 0.5 sacks in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Bengals in London.
Brockers hasn't been credited with a sack since Week 2 against the Saints, but he's on a career pace for tackles with 34 stops through eight games. Chalk that up to the increase in usage, as Brockers has already played 413 defensive snaps this year after finishing with 683 last season. The snap share could taper off as the wear and tear of the season carries on, but Brockers will first enjoy a Week 9 bye to mend any existing wounds.
Brockers (illness) was a full participant in Friday's practice.
Brockets was held out of Thursday's practice while nursing an illness, but he appears to have put it behind him completely. With Brockers' illness seemingly a non-issue now, he should be a full go come Sunday.
Brockers will not practice Thursday due to an illness, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
The nature and severity of Brockers' illness remain undisclosed, making it difficult to determine his chances of suiting up Week 4 against the Buccaneers at this time. The starting defensive end's practice level Friday will be worth monitoring.
Brockers played 52 of 65 defensive snaps and recorded three tackles (one solo) and a sack during Sunday's 27-9 win over New Orleans. He'd missed both Wednesday's and Thursday's practices with a shoulder injury.
The veteran collected just a single sack during the 2018 campaign, so if he can add a few more to his resume this year, his fantasy value would climb noticeably. Brockers has been a reliable source of tackles the past two seasons, and there's potential for him to get after opposing quarterbacks more often with opponents also needing to account for Aaron Donald, Clay Matthews and Dante Fowler Jr.
Brockers (shoulder) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's matchup with the Saints, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Brockers wasn't able to practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he was a full participant in Friday's session. The 29-year-old's full participation would indicate that he's ready to play Sunday against the Saints. Head coach Sean McVay expressed optimism Thursday that Brockers would play, and his full participation Friday certainly supports that notion.
Head coach Sean McVay said Thursday that he's "optimistic" that Brockers (shoulder) will be able to play Sunday versus the Saints, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Brockers missed another practice Thursday after not being able to practice Wednesday. It's unclear when the 28-year-old sustained the injury, as he was present for 49 of the defense's snaps (73 percent) last Sunday against Carolina. If Brockers can't suit up Sunday against the Saints, either Morgan Fox or Tanzel Smart would replace him in the Rams' defensive front.
Brockers officially was listed as a non-participant for Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury.
It's unclear how the veteran picked up the injury, as he played a total of 49 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over Carolina. Regardless, the fact that Brockers didn't suit up for practice should raise some concern. The team likely will continue to update his practice availability throughout the week, but if he can't go Sunday, Brockers likely would be replaced by Morgan Fox at defensive end.
Brockers finished the regular season with 54 tackles (21 solo) and a sack.
While often overshadowed by fellow defensive linemen Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh, Brockers turned in another solid season for the Rams. However, his on-field play didn't translate to consistent fantasy results, and Brockers will probably struggle to be anything more than a fringe contributor in IDP settings again in 2019.
Brockers (shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports reports.
Brockers suffered a sprained shoulder during the Rams' win over Denver in Week 6, but appears to have recovered from the injury. Expect Brockers to play his normal starting role against the 49ers on Sunday.
Brockers sprained his shoulder in Week 6 against the Broncos, but he's expected to play in Week 7 against the 49ers, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Barring a setback, Brockers is expected to take up his normal position as a starter on the defensive line. If he is limited for any reason, John Franklin-Myers is in line for a larger role for the Rams up front.
Brockers (knee), who revealed that he's recovering from a torn MCL, took part in the Rams' team activities Monday, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN reports.
Brockers sprained his right knee in the Rams' wild-card loss to the Falcons this past January. His availability for the start of Monday's voluntary workouts is a sign that he's close to full strength, but it's possible the defensive lineman is still operating under some sort of physical limitations.
