Rams clear probables for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Rams placed only probables on their Week 14 injury report - and all have been given the thumbs-up for their game at Washington aside from cornerback Marcus Roberson (ankle), who was a full-go in every practice this week and should be considered a healthy scratch.

The others include wide receiver Tavon Austin (back), linebackers James Laurinaitis (ankle) and Will Herring (foot), defensive end Chris Long (ankle) and tackle Rodger Saffold (shoulder).

Tavon Austin scores, still making little impact


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin scored for the second game in a row in Week 13, a 52-0 win over the Raiders.

Austin, who continues to make little impact in the passing game, scored on an 18-yard run, his second rushing touchdown in as many games. However, he still finished the game with fewer than 40 all-purpose yards for the seventh game in a row, as he had just 11 yards on two receptions and 24 yards on two carries.

Austin's skills are clear, but the team has had trouble finding a way to consistently put them to use. Despite his little two-game scoring streak, Austin is still only worth owning in the deepest of Fantasy formats at this time.
