Rams defense held sackless, scores touchdown in Week 3


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Rams didn't record a sack in Week 3's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys but did return an interception for a touchdown in the game.

Rams defensive end Robert Quinn saw plenty of double and triple teams with Chris Long sidelined, and none of his linemates were able to set up and hit Tony Romo with a sack. With the Rams already up 14-0 in the second quarter, cornerback Janoris Jenkins stepped in front of a Romo pass and cut an easy path to the end zone after making the pick. Defensive back Cody Davis managed to recover a DeMarco Murray fumble in the first quarter, giving the defense two turnovers on the day. The highly-regarded Rams defense has just one sack through three games heading into a Week 4 bye. A matchup with the Eagles awaits them on the other side of the week off.


Rams rule two defenders out for Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Rams defensive backs Trumaine Johnson (knee) and Brandon McGee have both been ruled out for Week 3 against the Cowboys, after their injuries kept them out of action during practice.

They are the only players on the defensive side of the ball listed on the injury report for Week 3's game. 


Rodney McLeod gets first interception of season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Rams safety Rodney McLeod came down with his first interception of the season Week 2 at Tampa Bay. It was his third career pick. He picked off Josh McCown in the first quarter. He registered five total tackles -- all solo -- and one pass defended in a 19-17 victory.

Rams do just enough to get the job done vs. Bucs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Rams defense did just enough to get the job done in Week 2 at Tampa Bay.

The Rams were unable to solve Tampa Bay's rushing attack, as Bobby Rainey gashed the defense for 144 yards on the ground. St. Louis forced one turnover and recorded one sack. Rodney McLeod came down with the game's only interception in the first quarter. E.J. Gaines and Eugene Sims shared the only sack of the day for the Rams.

The Rams will be back at home to host the Cowboys in Week 3.


Matt Conrath promoted as Chris Long heads to short-term IR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) The Rams officially placed defensive end Chris Long (ankle) on short-term injured reserve Thursday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Defensive lineman Matt Conrath was promoted from the practice squad to take Long's roster spot.

Chris Long needs ankle surgery


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Rams defensive end Chris Long will undergo surgery on his injured ankle and will miss at least a few games, coach Jeff Fisher said. He had played 95 straight games. William Hayes will fill in starting Sunday at Tampa Bay.

Rams defense struggles vs. Vikings in Week 1


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Rams defense came up short in Week 1, recording just one sack and no turnovers in the team's 34-6 loss to the Vikings.

Linebackers Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Alec Ogletree split the sack, leaving the Rams' vaunted front four to be shut out in the game. Minnesota quarterback Matt Cassel was able to complete 68 percent of his passes, and the Rams surrendered a long rushing touchdown to wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, though they did do a good job limiting Adrian Peterson to 75 rushing yards on 21 carries. The Rams will hope to bounce back in Week 2 against the Buccaneers.


Rams DST could thrive in Week 1 vs. Vikings


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) The Rams defense found a way to get scarier this offseason, selecting draftnik darling Aaron Donald in the first round to add to a front four that already includes Robert Quinn, Chris Long and Michael Brockers. That fearsome foursome has a good chance to wreak havoc on the Vikings in Week 1.

The Rams also enjoyed addition by subtraction when they parted ways with the regularly overmatched Cortland Finnegan this offseason. A unit that was dominant against the run last year should be able to do as good a job against Adrian Peterson as is possible. But teams will likely find it tougher to pass on the Rams this season; though the team was the worst in the league against No. 1 receivers last year, thanks in large part to Finnegan, they excelled against No. 2 wide receivers and were also the top team in the league at defending tight ends, per Football Outsiders.

The Vikings represent a nice matchup for the Rams, as Minnesota the 11th-best offense for DSTs to face last season. The Rams deservedly check in as top-five options for both CBSSports.com Fantasy experts this week.


Trumaine Johnson to miss 4-6 weeks with knee injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Rams head coach Jeff Fisher announced that cornerback Trumaine Johnson will miss 4-6 weeks with a sprained MCL, the team announced.

Rams lose three defensive players in preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson (knee) and defensive tackles Michael Brockers (ankle) and Kendall Langford (ankle) each left Saturday's preseason game against the Browns with injuries. All three players left in the first half and were unable to return to the game, per ESPN.

Janoris Jenkins still uncertain for preseason game vs. Green Bay


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Rams defensive back Janoris Jenkins participated in practice on Thursday, but remains uncertain for Saturday's preseason game against the Packers, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Head coach Jeff Fisher was not definitive whether Jenkins would make his preseason debut against Green Bay.

Trumaine Johnson, Brandon McGee to make preseason debut vs. Green Bay


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Rams cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson and Brandon McGee, who who were held out of the preseason opener against New Orleans, will play Saturday against Green Bay, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Thursday.

LaCanfora: Rams expected to cut Cortland Finnegan


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan is not expected to return to the team next season, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora. 

LaCanfora reports there is no way a team still trying to build and with almost no cap room will pay Finnegan $6 million with a $10 million cap hit, especially at the end of his career. He says if Finnegan is designated a post-June 1 cut, the Rams save $9 million in cap space.

Finnegan appeared in just seven games in 2013 and finished with 27 tackles and one interception.


James Laurinaitis: Rams are a Top 5 defense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) Now that the Rams have hired defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, the expectations are he will help the unit become a Top 5 defense in 2014, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

At least one player is buying in.

"There are no excuses for this defense not to do that," middle linebacker James Laurinaitis said. "We're fired up ... it is a buy-in program. You're going to see a team working hard every day. There are absolutely no excuses. We need to be a Top 5 defensive team."


Alec Ogletree to increase sack total?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2014) With the Rams hiring Gregg Williams as defensive coordinator, the team likely will blitz more on third down, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. That could mean more "pass-rush sorties" by linebacker Alec Ogletree, the report said.

Ogletree had 1.5 sacks during a fine rookie year in which he recorded 118 tackles, nine passes defensed, six forced fumbles and an interception.


Cortland Finnegan might have to take big pay cut


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) If the Rams want cornerback Cortland Finnegan back in 2014, it will almost certainly be at a significantly reduced price, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Finnegan is two years through a five-year, $50 million contract. He turns 30 next month.

Finnegan allowed three touchdown passes in the first four games this season before suffering a fractured orbital below his left eye. It appears surgery won't be necessary.

“That’s a bone issue,” general manager Les Snead told the paper. “As we all know with bones, only time can heal that. It’s not a major (injury) but because it’s up near your eye we’d better let this thing heal.”

If the Rams don't restructure his contract, Finnegan would count $10 million against the 2014 salary cap. That's way too much for a nickel corner.


Robert Quinn narrowly misses sack title


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Rams defensive end Robert Quinn registered his sixth sack in the final three games Week 17 at Seattle, giving him 19 this season. He finished a half-sack behind Indianapolis' Robert Mathis for the NFL sack title.

Quinn was trying to become the first Ram to win the sack title since Kevin Carter (17) did it in 1999. Quinn heads to the Pro Bowl after a phenomenal season in which he had 57 tackles, seven forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Quinn has virtually doubled his sack total every year, going from five to 10 1/2 to 19 this season.


Rams DST gets four sacks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Rams DST allowed 269 total yards and registered four sacks in the Week 17 loss at Seattle. Defensive end Robert Quinn got one of those sacks, giving him 19 this season to finish a half-sack behind Indianapolis' Robert Quinn for the NFL lead.

St. Louis was unable to force a turnover but the defense played fairly well, allowing 20 points. One Seattle touchdown came on a pick-6.


Kendall Langford ejected


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Rams defensive tackle Kendall Langford was ejected from the game at Seattle after making contact with an official. Langford had a sack and four tackles before drawing the unsportsmanlike conduct flag.

Rams pass rush dominates in Week 16


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Buccaneers offense had a hard time getting going in Week 16, and the Rams pass rush was a big reason why.

The Rams held the Buccaneers to just 170 yards and 13 points in a 23-13 win, and Tampa Bay's offense managed just one field goal after halftime. The Buccaneers turned the ball over twice on lost fumbles, but the biggest story in the game was the way Tampa's offensive line was dominated.

The Rams racked up seven sacks for 47 yards lost total.  Robert Quinn had three of those sacks, and four other players chipped in. The Rams completely dominated the line of scrimmage Sunday, but they will probably have a tougher time of things in Week 17, with the Seahawks on the schedule to close the season. 


T.J. McDonald records first career sack


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams defensive back T.J. McDonald picked up the first sack of his career in Week 16, one of seven in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers. He added six tackles -- all solo -- in the win. 

James Laurinaitis sets career high in sacks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis had a solid game Sunday, in a 23-13 Week 16 win over the Buccaneers. Laurinaitis had six tackles -- five solo -- and added 1 1/2 sacks, bringing his total for the season to 3 1/2, giving him a new career-high. 

Chris Long gets to the passer Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams defensive lineman Chris Long snapped a four-game sack-less streak Sunday, in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers in Week 16. Long had just one tackle, the sack. He now has 7 1/2 with one game left in the season, making it unlikely he will record his third straight double-digit sack season. 

Alec Ogletree forces two fumbles in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree continued to build on his solid rookie campaign in Week 16, in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers. Ogletree racked up a team-high eight tackles -- five solo -- including a half sack and two forced fumbles.

Robert Quinn picks up franchise record 18th sack


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Rams defensive lineman Robert Quinn had another huge game in Week 16, in a 23-13 win over the Buccaneers. Quinn racked up three more sacks, bringing his total for the season to 18, a new franchise record. He added six solo tackles.
