Position Listing
Cory Littleton
No Updates
Rodger Saffold
News
Saffold (concussion) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the Colts, Lindsey Thiry of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Saffold is expected to return to a depth role on the Rams' offensive front.

Tavon Austin
News
Austin rushed twice for three yards and caught one of three targets for five yards during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.

Austin only saw the field for nine of 50 offensive snaps, so his role in the offense has been predictable through two weeks. As a result, defenses have been able to account for him easily. He has the game-breaking ability to be a weapon for the Rams, but Austin isn't receiving the touches or targets to be a reliable fantasy asset right now. Additionally, quarterback Jared Goff has spread the ball around through the first two weeks of the season. It's difficult to trust Austin as a starting option in most fantasy settings heading into a Week 3 matchup against San Francisco.

Quinton Jefferson
News
Jefferson was waived by the Rams on Tuesday, Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Jefferson didn't see the field in the Rams' 46-9 win over the Colts in Week 1 and was unlikely to be a part of the defensive line rotation anytime soon with Aaron Donald ending his contract holdout and expected to play beginning in Week 2 against the Redskins. As such, the Rams elected to part ways with Jefferson in order to create more roster flexibility.

Cooper Kupp
News
Kupp caught three of six passes for 33 yards during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.

The rookie's fantasy day would have been a lot better if he wasn't held out of the end zone at the one-yard line in the second quarter. Kupp still led the Rams in targets, and it's encouraging that quarterback Jared Goff looked his way in the red zone. Kupp profiles as a much better option in PPR settings, as he's already a favorite of Goff. Just keep in mind that Kupp will probably continue to have a wide range of outcomes from week to week.

Mike Thomas
News
Rams coach Sean McVay said Sunday that Thomas is day-to-day after entering the concussion protocol, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Thomas didn't suit up for the Rams' first preseason game against the Cowboys, but he caught four of six targets for 49 yards before sustaining the head injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over the Raiders. The second-year receiver is already going to miss the first four games of the season because of a PED suspension, so his entry into the concussion protocol isn't going to help his case for picking up meaningful snaps once he's reinstated. As it stands, it seems unlikely that Thomas will carve out a large enough role in the Rams' passing attack to be a serviceable fantasy asset in 2017.

Injury
Suspension - Suspended until Week 5 vs. Seattle
Jared Goff
News
Goff completed just 15 of 25 passes for 224 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's overtime loss to Washington.

Goff once again spread the ball around connecting with eight different receivers Sunday, and it was also encouraging to see him led the Rams back from an early 16-0 deficit. However, he's now thrown for just two touchdowns through the first two weeks of the season. Goff and the Rams' offense is still a work in progress, and while the sophomore quarterback has the upside to be a go-to fantasy asset, he's not there yet. Next week's matchup against San Francisco could be a telling indication of whether Goff can be relied on against favorable opponents moving forward.

Temarrick Hemingway
News
Hemingway (leg) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Jamie Han of the Rams' official site reports.

Hemingway fractured his fibula in the third preseason game and is set to miss about 8-10 weeks. He's unlikely to come off IR until season's end.

Injury
Lower Leg - Injured Reserve
Jake McQuaide
No Updates
Johnny Hekker
No Updates
Paul McRoberts
No Updates
Connor Barwin
News
Barwin signed a one-year deal worth up to $6.5 million with the Rams on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Barwin's signing addresses a major need for the Rams after the team jettisoned a pair of veteran edge rushers on the first day of free agency. The 30-year-old Barwin is coming off one of his least productive seasons as a pro, racking up 5.0 sacks over 16 games. That said, Barwin hasn't missed a game in six full seasons and he will add a veteran presence to an otherwise young defensive corps.

Josh Forrest
News
Forrest (knee) reached an injury settlement with the Rams on Saturday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Forrest is now free to sign elsewhere if he is healthy enough to play. The 25-year-old was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury last year as well, but it's unclear how severe the injury is this time around.

Injury
Knee - Out for Week 3 at San Francisco
Sean Mannion
News
Mannion completed 16 of 29 pass attempts for 214 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's preseason loss to the Chargers.

Mannion is battling with Dan Orlovsky for the backup job behind starter Jared Goff. While Mannion was just mediocre Saturday, Orlovsky has only attempted five passes through three preseason games, so the quarterback pecking order is pretty clear. Still, there aren't many fantasy settings where Mannion is worth a roster spot.

Brandon Allen
News
Allen was claimed off of waivers by the Rams on Monday, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com reports.

Allen spent training camp with the Jaguars but was let go when they opted to carry only two quarterbacks on their 53-man roster. This move is interesting for the Rams, who don't seem very confident in their current quarterback situation. Sean Mannion seemingly is firmly planted as the backup behind Jared Goff, but Allen will look to learn the offense in case injuries require him to take the field.

Tyler Higbee
News
Higbee was unable to connect with quarterback Jared Goff on his lone target of the game during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.

Higbee, a classic flex tight end, seemed to be getting his perfect coach when Sean McVay was hired in January. A former tight ends coach, McVay made great use of the tight end as a coordinator in Washington, but it hasn't played out that way thus far this season. Though Higbee has taken starter-level snaps, including 41 of 50 on Sunday, it's been rookie Gerald Everett with the big plays thus far with three catches of at least 20 yards in the first two weeks of the season.

Carlos Thompson
News
Thompson signed a contract with the Rams on Wednesday, ESPN's Alden Gonzalez reports.

Thompson, who went undrafted out of Ole Miss in 2015, was out of the league last season after spending his rookie year with the Texans. He's only tallied two tackles across two game appearances and likely won't push for anything more than a depth role at outside linebacker with the Rams.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 3 at San Francisco
Ejuan Price
No Updates
Trumaine Johnson
News
Johnson (leg) was not listed on the team's non-practice injury report Monday, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Although the team didn't practice, it's encouraging to see Johnson avoid the report. We'll see if he practice later this week, but things seem to be trending in the right direction for a return to action.

Lance Dunbar
News
Dunbar (knee) has increased his activity lately, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

Dunbar tweeted "four weeks to go", which suggests he's hoping to be available when first eligible to come off the PUP list in Week 7. Todd Gurley has been impressive as a receiving threat through two weeks, but the Rams might still be able to find a role for Dunbar on obvious passing downs if he looks like he's back at full speed.

Injury
Knee - Physically Unable to Perform
Aaron Donald
News
Donald had two tackles (one tackle for loss) and a quarterback hit in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.

Donald played 48 of 71 snaps in his return to action, second only to Michael Brockers' 51 on the Rams' defensive line. The 26-year-old looked a bit rusty and was unable to take advantage of one-on-one opportunities, but that's not altogether surprising after holding out the entirety of training camp. Donald will have a quick turnaround this week as the Rams face the 49ers on Thursday night.

Tanzel Smart
No Updates
Omarius Bryant
No Updates
Sam Rogers
News
Rogers signed with the Rams' practice squad, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rogers was waived by the Rams after head coach Sean McVay reportedly did not see much of a need for fullbacks in his offense. After clearing waivers this weekend, he'll remain within the organization.

Johnny Mundt
News
Mundt was waived by the Rams on Monday, Gary Klein of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Mundt played in just one preseason game -- the finale against bubble players -- and recorded two receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown.

Maurice Alexander
News
Alexander tallied nine tackles during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Redskins.

Alexander had previously been dealing with a shoulder injury, but with his return to full health, he'll look to build on his early individual success.

Jamon Brown
No Updates
Marqui Christian
News
Christian (ankle) was left off Wednesday's injury report and is expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Colts, Lindsey Thiry of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Christian is expected to be relegated to special teams duties, as he played just three defensive snaps in 2016.

Aaron Neary
News
Neary was waived by the Rams on Saturday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Neary was inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts. The 24-year-old was let go to make room for cornerback Kevin Peterson.

Alec Ogletree
News
Ogletree led the team with 11 combined tackles during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Redskins.

Ogletree's performance headlined a fairly disappointing day for the Rams defense. As one of the few bright spots, Ogletree also had a sack and tackle for loss Sunday.

Sammy Watkins
News
Watkins caught both of his targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.

After a mediocre showing in Week 1 (five receptions for 58 yards), this was a disappointing follow-up. Watkins now has just seven catches for 88 yards, and quarterback Jared Goff spread the ball around again Sunday by targeting nine different receivers. While it's been a discouraging start, Watkins played 45 of 50 offensive snaps against Washington and is by far the most talented wideout on the roster. It would be surprising if Watkins isn't targeted more moving forward.

Gerald Everett
News
Everett (thigh) was limited in practice Tuesday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Everett did not participate in practice Monday, so his limited participation Tuesday is a reassuring sign that the tight end could be ready to go for Thursday's showdown with the 49ers. Look for Wednesday's practice report to give a better indication of Everett's game status.

Injury
Thigh - Did Not Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 3 at San Francisco

Derek Carrier
News
The Redskins traded Carrier to the Rams on Saturday in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With the Rams, Carrier reunites with head coach Sean McVay, who was Carrier's offensive coordinator in 2015-16 when both were with the Redskins. He likely won't be anything more than the No. 3 tight end behind Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett, though, so he doesn't appear to have any fantasy value entering Week 1.

Samson Ebukam
News
Ebukam (hamstring) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the Colts, Lindsey Thiry of The Los Angeles Times reports.

With Robert Quinn (thigh) being left off this injury report as well, Ebukam won't see as many snaps as he would've with Quinn out. However, he is still slated for some defensive snaps, but the rookie linebacker will likely contribute mostly on special teams.

Troy Hill
News
Hill (suspension) was reinstated Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Hill was handed a two-game suspension in May for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The 26-year-old was likely only a depth cornerback and special teams player for the Rams coming into the season, but could potentially see more defensive snaps if Kayvon Webster (shoulder) misses any more time.

Cornelius Lucas
News
Lucas agreed to a contract with the Rams on Tuesday, Kristen lago of the Rams' official website reports.

Lucas was let go by the Lions last week after both parties reached an injury settlement. The Kansas State project had been with Detroit since going undrafted in 2014, and played in 35 games during that time. He now projects to be be a rotational lineman with the Rams.

Dominique Hatfield
News
Hatfield (concussion) was not present on the Rams injury report Wednesday.

Hatfield exited Sunday's game against the Colts briefly to undergo the NFL's concussion protocol, but passed and eventually returned to the action. Despite returning to the game Sunday, it's nonetheless good to see the 22-year-old doesn't appear to be suffering any ill affects from the potential injury.

John Johnson
No Updates
Ethan Westbrooks
News
Westbrooks signed a one-year, $1.75 million extension Monday with the Rams, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

In addition to keeping Westbrooks in the fold for the Rams through the end of the 2018 campaign, the new deal will reduce the defensive end's salary from $1.79 million to $1.25 million in 2017. Westbrooks evidently determined that the extra year was worthwhile enough for him to take a paycut for 2017, making him a decent bargain for the Rams. The 26-year-old was one of several standout performers in the Rams' Week 1 win over the Colts, registering three tackles and a sack in the 46-9 victory.

Austin Blythe
News
Blythe was claimed off waivers by the Rams on Tuesday, Rich Hammond of The Orange County Register reports.

Blythe spent the 2016 campaign with the Colts, playing in eight games and logging one start. After being waived by the Colts earlier in the week, he'll now join the Rams and should provide some help on the interior of the line if he makes the final roster.

Tyrunn Walker
News
Walker and the Rams agreed to a contract on Wednesday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Walker signed with the team back in March but was released in June. With Aaron Donald still holding out, Walker will join a plethora of defensive tackles looking to land a spot on the final roster. The 27-year-old will look to impress for the remainder of camp in order to earn a depth role on the line.

Zach Laskey
News
Laskey was waived by the Rams on Tuesday, Kristen Lago of the team's official site reports.

Laskey was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed issue before last season began, and now he'll have to look for brighter opportunities. He has yet to play a regular season snap, which is partially due to the fact that fullback is a dying position. Regardless, expect him to land somewhere else for at least a tryout.

Injury
Robert Quinn
News
Quinn (thigh) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Lindsey Thiry of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Health has been a concern for Quinn over the past two seasons, but Wednesday's report clears him for Sunday's matchup with the Colts. Expect Quinn to be used heavily in pass-rush situations and to hone in on the 10-sack mark again this season.

Greg Zuerlein
News
Zuerlein converted three field goals and all five of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's win over Indianapolis.

Zuerlein's perfect day was a nice kick-start to the season, but more importantly for his fantasy value, the Rams' offense showcased the ability to move the football and sustain drives. There will be tougher matchups ahead, and Zuerlein is far from a set-and-forget kicker, but he has the potential to earn that status over the coming weeks.

Morgan Fox
News
Fox was signed to the active roster Saturday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Fox has stood out in practice and has been subsequently added to the active roster. Fox will likely serve as a special teams asset.

Andrew Whitworth
No Updates
Pharoh Cooper
News
Cooper caught five of his eight targets for 70 yards in Saturday's 21-19 preseason loss to the Chargers. He also returned two kickoffs for 42 yards.

Cooper was impressive on the evening, leading the team in receptions and targets, while finishing one yard shy of team leader Josh Reynolds. He had a long gain of 24 yards but did most of his damage on short and intermediate routes. Cooper is one of several wide receivers on the roster looking to establish himself firmly as a productive regular, and while he will be forced to fight for targets as the regular season draws near, he has certainly flashed his potential this preseason. He could receive another look in Thursday's preseason finale against the Packers.

Mark Barron
News
Barron recorded 10 tackles during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.

Barron was very active Sunday and made his presence throughout the contest. The former Alabama standout also registered two tackles for loss.

Nickell Robey-Coleman
News
According to head coach Sean McVay, Robey-Coleman may start this Sunday if Kayvon Webster (shoulder) is ruled out, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Webster did not participate in practice Thursday so there's a chance Robey-Coleman is called upon to start Sunday. However, Webster's status for Friday's practice will give a better indication of what to expect in the Rams' secondary this week.

Bryce Hager
News
Hager (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice.

The second year linebacker projects to back up Alec Ogletree this season. His status for Monday's season opener against the 49ers will depend on if he can clear the NFL's concussion protocol. If he cannot play, Josh Forrest will likely slide into the backup role.

Matt Longacre
News
Longacre signed his exclusive-rights contract tender with the Rams on Monday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Longacre was limited to six games in 2016 due to an injured heel and tallied just six tackles on the year. He'll compete for a depth role along the defensive line this summer.

Josh Reynolds
News
Reynolds caught three of five targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 21-19 loss to the Chargers.

Reynolds did most of his damage on a scoring drive in the third quarter, snagging a 16-yard pass from Sean Mannion before the duo connected for a 38-yard touchdown just two plays later. The rookie found a groove the last week against the Raiders and has displayed a knack for making plays during his first preseason. While some offseason acquisitions have bolstered the wide receiver corps for the Rams, Reynolds should at least have the chance to compete for targets and could garner an extended look in Thursday's preseason finale against the Packers.

Michael Brockers
News
Brockers (groin) is slated to play in Sunday's tilt against the Panthers, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.

Brockers' Week 10 status wasn't too iffy after practicing in full on Friday, despite missing practice earlier in the week due to the minor groin issue.

Rob Havenstein
News
Havenstein (ankle) wasn't listed on the injury report Wednesday and is expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Colts, Lindsey Thiry of The Los Angeles Times reports.

There were reports that Havenstein would move to guard and that Greg Robinson would be moved to tackle, but Robinson was traded in the offseason, leaving Havenstein to be the starting right tackle.

Malcolm Brown
News
Brown was absent from Tuesday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Brown presumably sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Redskins. Although he had seven carries for 16 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, Brown had just one catch for a four yard loss in the closely contested loss to the Redskins. While his status for Thursday's game against the 49ers remains up in the air, the 24-year-old does not figure to be a fantasy factor should he ultimately take the field.

Injury
Hamstring - Did Not Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 3 at San Francisco
Bradley Marquez
News
Marquez (knee) reverted to injured reserve Tuesday.

Marquez was waived/injured Monday after dealing with a knee injury for most of training camp and reverts to IR after clearing waivers. He's likely stuck there throughout the end of the 2017 season, barring an injury settlement.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Blake Countess
News
Countess signed a contract with the Rams on Friday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

With Nelson Spruce (calf) placed on injured reserve Friday, Countess brings Los Angeles back to having a full, 53-man roster. However, it isn't clear where he slots in on the depth chart given the complicated positional arrangement of the Rams' secondary.

Lamarcus Joyner
News
Joyner registered nine tackles during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Redskins.

Joyner seems to have fully moved past the ankle injury that had been plaguing him this summer. He'll likely continue to be one of the main focal points on the Rams defense moving forward.

Kayvon Webster
News
Webster (shoulder) was unable to participate in Tuesday's practice, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Webster injured his shoulder in the Rams' season opener and has been sidelined since. The fact that he could not even practice in a limited role does not bode well for his chances to take the field on a short week. Barring a turnaround in health, look for Nickell Robey-Coleman to get another start at cornerback should Webster be sidelined again.

Injury
Shoulder - Did Not Practice on Monday. Questionable for Week 3 at San Francisco
Andrew Donnal
News
Donnal (knee) was absent from Wednesday's injury report and is expected to return for Sunday's matchup with the Colts, Lindsey Thiry of The Los Angeles Times reports.

Donnal will now return to being Jamon Brown's backup at right guard.

Robert Woods
News
Woods caught just one of his four passes for eight yards during Sunday's 27-20 loss to Washington.

This was a discouraging showing from Woods after he hauled in passes for 27- and 21-yard gains last week. While Woods played 45 of 50 offensive snaps, quarterback Jared Goff targeted nine different receivers Sunday, so Woods projects to remain an unreliable fantasy option until proven otherwise.

John Sullivan
No Updates
Dominique Easley
News
Easley suffered a leg injury and was carted off the practice field Tuesday, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Easley is coming off what was by far his best season as a pro in 2016, when he recorded 35 tackles, including 3.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. He was looking to continue making strides in his second year with the Rams, but that may be on hold after his apparent leg injury. The team has not yet commented on his status, but getting carted off the field is always an ominous sign. He's currently without a timetable for return.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Travis Wilson
No Updates
Justin Davis
News
Davis survived Saturday's roster cutdown, ESPN.com's Alden Gonzalez reports.

The undrafted rookie out of USC took advantage of a thin depth chart behind Todd Gurley after gaining 147 yards on 36 carries (4.1 average) during the preseason. There is some chance Davis doesn't last long with the team, as the Rams may want a more polished pass catcher to join Gurley and No. 2 runner Malcolm Brown in the backfield. Should he stick around, Davis could eventually get a shot at the No. 2 role, considering Brown is one of the least promising backups in the league. Pass-catching specialist Lance Dunbar (PUP-knee) will miss at least the first six games of the season.

Cody Davis
News
Davis is questionable for Week 5 due to a groin injury.

Davis was limited in practice Friday after sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday. If he's unable to play on Sunday look for Marqui Christian to see a few extra reps.

Johnson was signed by the Buccaneers on Monday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Johnson spent his entire rookie season on the Bucs' practice squad, but he'll be given an opportunity to compete for the active roster throughout the upcoming offseason.

Todd Gurley
News
Gurley rushed 16 times for 88 yards and a touchdown and caught three of four targets for 48 yards and a score during Sunday's 27-20 overtime loss to Washington.

Gurley rushed for just 2.1 yards per carry last week, so it was encouraging to see him run for 5.5 yards per tote Sunday. Additionally, it's clear new head coach Sean McVay is eager to utilize Gurley in the passing game, as the back is now up to eight receptions for 104 yards and two touchdowns through two weeks. Gurley projects to remain the focal point of the Rams' offensive attack and should be viewed as a solid starting option in all formats heading into next week's matchup against San Francisco.
