Westbrooks recently pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of carrying a loaded firearm, Gary Klein of The Los Angeles Times reports.
Westbrooks was arrested in September, just two weeks after signing a one-year, $1.75 million extension with the Rams. He's been sentenced to one day in jail, getting credit for time served, along with three years of probation. The 27-year-old had 23 tackles and four sacks last season, making nine starts in 16 games. Westbrooks likely will serve as a backup this upcoming season, as the Rams plan to start Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers on the defensive line. Westbrooks may be suspended by the NFL now that his legal case has reached a conclusion.
Westbrooks collected four tackles (three solo) and two sacks during Sunday's 32-16 win over Arizona.
Considering he played just 22 of 64 defensive snaps, Westbrooks stuffed the stat sheet Sunday. His 21 tackles (13 solo) and four sacks through 12 games for the campaign hardly land him on the fantasy radar. However, with offenses forced to focus on Aaron Donald, the rest of Los Angeles' defensive linemen will continue to have opportunities to pressure opposing quarterbacks.
Westbrooks has been charged with one misdemeanor count of carrying a loaded firearm stemming from a September arrest, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
With an arraignment scheduled for Friday in Kern County, Calif., Westbrooks is in line to miss the final practice of Week 11 preparations. Once he enters a plea, he may join his Rams teammates in time for the trip to Minnesota, but there could be a delay in his arrival. On the season, he's played 28.9 percent of the defensive snaps, which has resulted in a modest 13 tackles (eight solo) and two sacks in nine games.
