Christian ended the 2017 season on IR due to a shoulder injury. Prior to his injury he had been primarily a special teams player, seeing the field on defense for just 47 snaps in 12 games. His solid play at Friday's practice is a positive sign for the young safety, who has been getting some extra reps while starter Lamarcus Joyner (achilles) has been sidelined the past few days. Look for him to increase his role on defense if he keeps up the impactful play.
Christian injured his shoulder in Week 16 against the Titans and wasn't likely to recover in time to play in Week 17 against the 49ers or at any point during the Rams' playoff run. The 2016 fifth-round pick was mostly a special-teams contributor this season, finishing the campaign with nine tackles over 12 contests.
