Countess (shoulder) played 32 snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans and recorded one tackle
Countess injured his shoulder in the Rams' preseason opener, but appears to be healthy as he enters the last two weeks of the preseason. Countess is currently backing up John Johnson at strong safety.
Countess tallied one tackle in the contest. The injury is not considered serious, so he should be considered day-to-day. He is looking to earn a more prominent role in the Rams' secondary this season, but as of now he projects as a depth safety.
Countess (concussion) was a full participant at Thursday's practice and does not have a designation heading into Saturday's game against the Falcons, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN reports.
Countess entered the concussion protocol earlier in the week but appears set to suit up for Saturday's playoff game. The second-year safety will back up John Johnson in the Rams' secondary.
Countess evidently sustained a concussion during Sunday's regular-season finale against the 49ers. He'll need to clear protocol in order to suit up for Saturday's playoff game against the Falcons.
Countess suffered the possible concussion on a vicious hit on 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin that sent Goodwin to the hospital with a confirmed concussion. The 24-year-old could see a fine and perhaps even a suspension headed his way for the hit on Goodwin.
