Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: All clear for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (undisclosed) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Okoronkwo was instructed to stay away from team facilities for a portion of the practice week, as the Rams aimed to mitigate COVID-19 spread following a positive test within the organization. The 25-year-old hasn't yet started a game for L.A. this season, but he has garnered a workload of 18.3 defensive snaps per game over seven 2020 appearances. He has an opportunity to build on his modest sack total of one against a Jets offensive line that is tied for the seventh-most sacks surrendered on the campaign (2.8 per game).

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Receives questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (undisclosed) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Jets, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

There are COVID-19 concerns at the Rams' facilities, and they're taking every precaution ahead of Sunday's contest. Okoronkwo has been staying away from the team as a result, according to Modesti. It's uncertain if he'll play in Sunday's game. Fellow linebacker Justin Hollins is questionable for the same reason. Rookie Terrell Lewis would see a bump in usage if both players sit out.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Returns from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams activated Okoronkwo (elbow) from injured reserve Saturday.

Okoronkwo will return to the lineup in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, his first time on the field since Week 4. Prior to his injury, Okoronkwo played around 30 percent of the snaps on defense in each game, recording eight tackles, a sack and a pass breakup. He'll serve as a reserve behind starters Leonard Floyd and Samson Ebukam.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Designated to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams designated Okoronkwo (elbow) to return from IR on Wednesday.

Consequently, Okoronkwo's 21-day practice window has opened, and he could be available to play as soon as Sunday against San Francisco. The linebacker filled a situational role in his three games before getting injured, notching eight tackles (six solo), a sack and a pass breakup.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Unlikely to return Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (elbow) isn't expected to return from injured reserve and play Sunday against the Seahawks, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

The 25-year-old underwent elbow surgery in mid-October and was given a four- to six-week recovery timeline, and he has yet to be designated to return from injured reserve. Once Okoronkwo receives the return designation, he'll have a 21-day window to practice and potentially be activated before reverting to injured reserve for the rest of the season.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Officially placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

Okoronkwo suffered this injury in a Week 5 win over Washington and he underwent surgery that required a four- to six-week recovery timeline. The Rams made a confusing move by keeping him on the active roster for the Week 6 matchup against the 49ers, and now he'll be shut down for at least the next two games, making him eligible to return Week 10 against Seattle. Natrez Patrick and rookie Terrell Lewis figure to see increases in their respective workloads for the time being.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Set to miss four to six weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo will undergo elbow surgery and is expected to miss four to six weeks, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.

The Rams likely will place Okoronkwo on injured reserve within the next couple of days. Coach Sean McVay relayed Wednesday that losing Okoronkwo is a big hit to the teams' defense since the third-year linebacker has been "playing so well." He's recorded eight tackles, a sack and a pass breakup through three games in a situational role. Samson Ebukam and rookie Terrell Lewis could both receive bumps in usage until Okoronkwo returns.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Expected to undergo surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo is expected to undergo surgery after injuring his elbow Sunday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

The specifics of the surgery remain unknown, but the obvious hope is that it will not cost the linebacker the rest of his 2020 campaign. Okoronkwo has seen steadily increasing defensive reps as the season has progressed. He has eight tackles (six solo), a sack and a pass defensed through five games this season.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Suffers elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo suffered an elbow injury during Sunday's game against Washington and is considered questionable to return, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

The Oklahoma product registered his first sack of 2020 during a 17-9 win over the Giants last Sunday, but he had not yet logged a tackle prior to his exit against Washington in Week 5. Okoronkwo was not being counted on for starting snaps in the Rams' linebacker rotation, but he had garnered an average of 20.3 defensive snaps per game Weeks 1 through 4. This development thins out the left outside linebacker spot behind Samson Ebukam should Okoronkwo prove unable to return.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Surprises with pass rush
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo notched 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Bengals in London.

The 2018 fifth-round pick made his NFL debut in Week 6, and he achieved his first major impact just two games later. The 24-year-old linebacker enjoyed a 37-percent snap share in Clay Matthews' (jaw) stead. Matthews could return following the team's Week 9 bye, however, so Okoronkwo's burst in production could take a backseat again.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (foot) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Okoronkwo was activated from the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list earlier this week, and appears to have fully recovered from his foot surgery in May. The rookie appears on track to make his NFL debut against the Seahawks on Sunday, and will serve as a reserve option behind Dante Fowler Jr. and Matt Longacre.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (foot) was activated to the Rams' 53-man roster Monday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Okoronkwo returned to practice in mid October after starting the season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list, and appears to be nearing a return to full health. The rookie will serve as a reserve linebacker behind Dante Fowler Jr. and Matt Longacre, and could make his NFL debut against the Seahawks on Sunday.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Rejoins practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (foot) participated in practice Wednesday for the first time since landing on the PUP list to begin the season, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports.

Okoronkwo reportedly feels great as he begins participation, likely suggesting he will be activated off the PUP list well ahead of the 21 days allotted. When ready, the rookie fifth-round pick will look to make his first impact on the football field after a delayed start to his professional career.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Will start on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (foot) will start the season on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list, Clarence Dennis of the Rams' official site reports.

Okoronkwo will now have to sit out the first six games of the season, signalling that he is still rehabbing from his foot surgery in May. When he returns, Okoronkwo will back up Matt Longacre at outside linebacker.

Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Unlikely to be activated before season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okoronkwo (foot) is unlikely to be activated off the PUP list before the season begins, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

Okoronkwo underwent foot surgery in late May and was subsequently put on the PUP list before the start of training camp. The rookie linebacker out of Oklahoma was expected to compete for a starting job opposite Samson Ebukam, but will now have to wait even longer to get on the field, though his recovery timetable is still uncertain.
