Longacre was evaluated for a concussion after exiting the Week 9 matchup due to a head injury, but appears to have passed all tests and has returned to the field. He'll return to his role as a rotational pass rusher for the remainder of Sunday's contest.
Longacre is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Longacre left the field during the first half of Sunday's contest after sustaining a head injury. If the rotational linebacker is unable to return Week 9, one of John Franklin-Myers, Bryce Hager or Ramik Wilson could receive increased defensive snaps.
Head coach Sean McVay said Longacre experienced back spasms during Sunday's game against the Broncos, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.
Longacre exited the game in the first half and didn't return. This situation may very well be minor, but it's concerning nonetheless considering the linebacker underwent back surgery late last season.
Longacre (biceps) played 13 snaps and tallied one sack in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans.
Longacre suffered a biceps injury early in camp after undergoing back surgery in the offseason, but his performance Saturday indicates that he is feeling healthier as the regular season approaches. Longacre is expected to start for the Rams at weakside linebacker.
