Easley (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.
The move comes as little surprise following Easley's surgery Monday. With the move to IR, Easley's 2018 season is a thing of the past and he'll enter the offseason with questions about his future in Los Angeles.
Easley (knee) underwent surgery Monday, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports.
Although unofficial, it appears Easley's season is over. The Rams will likely address Easley's status in the coming days but given the surgery, it seems more than likely that Easley will begin setting his sights on 2019. Employed mainly as a reserve linebacker, Los Angeles' on-field production shouldn't take too much of a dip without Easley.
Easley (knee) could remained sidelined for a significant amount of time, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Easley seems to have suffered a significant injury during the Rams' Week 3 victory over the Chargers. The 2014 first-rounder has a history of serious knee issues, so expect an update on Easley's health in the near future. The depth linebacker played mostly a special teams role, so his extended absence should have a minimal impact on Los Angeles' defense.
Easley (knee) will likely be questionable to play Thursday against the Vikings, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Easley injured his knee in Sunday's win over the Chargers and is likely experiencing the effects of wear and tear after previously undergoing three major knee surgeries in his career. A depth player for the Rams, Easley's potential absence Thursday wouldn't be viewed as a significant loss.
Easley serves mostly a special teams role for the Rams, so his injury is unlikely to impact the team's defense during Sunday's contest. If Easley is unable to return, John Franklin-Myers and Ethan Westbrooks could be in line to receive increased rotational defensive snaps.
