Joyner (Achilles) played seven snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans and recorded an interception.
Joyner was dealing with a sore Achilles early in camp that forced him to miss a few practices, but he appears healthy and effective heading into the home stretch of the preseason. Joyner is currently slated as the Rams' starting free safety.
Joyner is dealing with Achilles soreness following Thursday's practice, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.
Joyner's injury does not appear to be overly serious, and with the regular season still multiple weeks away, there's no reason for the Rams to rush the safety back into action. Look for Marqui Christian to see increased snaps with the first team as long as Joyner is out.
Joyner passed his physical just one day after being placed on the NFI list. He was activated in time for the team's first practice session and should immediately resume his role as a starting safety with the first-team defense.
It's surprising to see Joyner's name on this list, as he wasn't known to be dealing with an injury. There's no telling when he's expected back on the field. When healthy, the franchise-tagged safety should immediately return to his spot with the first-team defense.
