Rams' Austin Blythe: Staying with Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe agreed Wednesday with the Rams on a new contract, Lindsey Thiry of reports.

Blythe started 16 games in 2018 and 15 in 2019, primarily playing right guard but eventually shifting to center. He should retain a starting job in 2020, as the Rams don't have much cap space to secure the upgrades they need for their offensive line.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Practices fully Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Blythe was held to a limited participation in Wednesday's session, so his full participation Thursday bodes well. It seems the 27-year-old is ready to return to his starting role at right guard.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Will sit out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Browns, Lindsey Thiry of reports.

Jamil Demby will start at right guard in this contest, and Blythe will look to shake this injury before Week 4's game versus the Buccaneers.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe (ankle) is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with Cleveland.

Blythe didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday, but he was able to get in a limited participation Friday. If the 27-year-old can't suit up Sunday, Jamil Demby would slide over to start at right guard and the team would be left without any depth at the guard position.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Blythe is nursing a low-ankle sprain suffered during a Week 2 win over the Saints. While it doesn't appear that the starting guard is dealing with a long-term injury, he'll likely need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday in order to suit up Week 3 in Cleveland.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Nursing low-ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe sustained a low-ankle sprain during Sunday's 27-9 win over the Saints, Lindsey Thiry of reports.

A timetable for Blythe's recovery remains undisclosed, but it doesn't appear as though he's dealing with a long-term injury. As long as Blythe is forced to miss time, expect Jamil Demby to slot into the starting lineup at right guard.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Set for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe (ankle) will have an MRI on Monday, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports.

The Rams are hoping they won't have to place Blythe on injured reserve, but it's expected he'll miss some time. Expect Jamil Demby to fill in at right guard until Blythe returns.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game versus the Saints, Lindsey Thiry of reports.

With Blythe done for the day, Jamil Demby is expected to fill in at right guard for the rest of the game.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Saints and is questionable to return.

Blythe suffered the injury late in the second quarter and could barley put weight on his ankle after laying on the ground in pain. With the 27-year-old sidelined, Jamil Demby is the likely candidate to slide over to right guard.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Listed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe is slotted as the starting right guard on the Rams' official depth chart, Lindsey Thiry of reports.

The 2016 seventh-round pick has come a long way since his Iowa days and seems to be impressing those around Los Angeles. Blythe started just one game for the Rams in 2017 despite appearing in all 16 contests.

Rams' Austin Blythe: Claimed off waivers by Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blythe was claimed off waivers by the Rams on Tuesday, Rich Hammond of The Orange County Register reports.

Blythe spent the 2016 campaign with the Colts, playing in eight games and logging one start. After being waived by the Colts earlier in the week, he'll now join the Rams and should provide some help on the interior of the line if he makes the final roster.
