Everett recorded a 17-yard reception during Sunday's 34-0 win over Arizona.
After missing the majority of the preseason with a shoulder injury and playing just five offensive snaps in Week 1, it was encouraging to see Everett haul in a lengthy reception Sunday. He's still firmly behind Tyler Higbee on the depth chart, as Everett played just eight offensive snaps compared to Higbee's 64. However, it wouldn't be shocking if the second-year tight end out of South Alabama became more involved in the passing attack as the season progresses. Everett was handpicked by the current regime in the second round of the 2017 draft, and he displayed his athleticism with 15.3 yards per reception as a rookie in 2017.

Expected to challenge starter Tyler Higbee for reps at tight end this season, Everett instead spent the bulk of training camp and the entire preseason recovering from an unspecified shoulder injury. At one point, Everett was seen with a sling on his left arm during a practice session. With the season opener days away, he has reached 100 percent health -- or at least enough to avoid the injury report -- but the past month may have put a damper on his ability to produce early on.
Everett's shoulder injury has lingered for the larger part of August and seemingly could affect his chances of playing in Week 1. The injury has caused some concern given Everett's extended absence, but coach Sean McVay feels that, barring any setbacks, Everett will be ready to go for the regular season opener.
Everett has been diagnosed with a shoulder sprain and could miss at least a week, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.
Everett sustained the minor shoulder injury at some point during the past week of training camp, but the backup tight end isn't dealing with an issue that could put his Week 1 availability in jeopardy at this point. With Everett sidelined and essentially considered day-to-day, Temarrick Hemingway and Henry Krieger-Coble could see additional reps at tight end behind starter Tyler Higbee.
Everett is dealing with a shoulder injury, the severity of which is unknown, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.
Everett is currently listed as No. 2 on the tight end depth chart behind Tyler Higbee, but could be in for a bigger role this season as he gets more and more used to playing the position at a professional level. Head coach Sean McVay has complimented Everett's potential to be an asset in the Rams' offense, so there will be optimism that the shoulder injury is not of major concern. Everett has over a month to get healthy before regular season play begins.
