Mason Brodine
News
Rams converted tight end Mason Brodine suffered a fractured ankle during Thursday's preseason opener against the Saints, according to the team's official website. Head coach Jeff Fisher declared Brodine out for the season with the injury.
Injury
Rodger Saffold
News
Rams guard Rodger Saffold left Sunday's game at Kansas City in the second quarter due to a shoulder injury, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He was listed as questionable to return.
Davin Joseph
News
New Rams guard Davin Joseph is 30 and coming off a disappointing season. A 2012 knee injury and a 2013 staph infection made him less effective than normal.

But the two-time Pro Bowler, who's not projected as a starter, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he feels he's got "a lot left."

"I feel like I can contribute to this team," he said. "I don’t know how big or how small my role will be. But I feel like I can contribute. So if it’s just coming out here and really working to make the guys better, that’s my job. And I’ll do it the best that I can.

"My confidence is high. Sometimes you’re faced with challenges for a reason, right? So I’m pretty sure there’s a reason why I’ve had to go through what I’ve had to go through for the last couple years to get to this point today."

E.J. Gaines
News
The Rams locked up their entire draft class Thursday as all 11 rookies were signed to contracts.

The complete list:

Round 1, pick 2: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
Round 1, pick 13: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
Round 2, pick 41: Lamarcus Joyner, CB, Florida St.
Round 3, pick 75: Tre Mason, RB, Auburn
Round 4, pick 110: Maurice Alexander, S, Utah State
Round 6, pick 188: E.J. Gaines, CB, Missouri

Round 7, pick 226: Mitchell Van Dyk, OT, Portland State
Round 7, pick 241: Christian Bryant, S, Ohio State
Round 7, pick 249: Michael Sam, DE, Missouri
Round 7, pick 250: Demetrius Rhaney, C, Tennessee State

Tavon Austin
News
The Rams got a slew of offensive contributions in their 28-26 home win over the Seahawks. Wideout Tavon Austin rushed five times for 16 yards and caught three of four targets for 6 yards. Receiver Chris Givens made a 30-yard catch, and wideout Kenny Britt caught two of three targets for 4 yards.

Tight end Cory Harkey added a 9-yard grab.

Damian Williams
News
The Dolphins activated defensive end Dion Jordan Saturday, waiving wide receiver Damian Williams in a corresponding move.

Jordan missed six games while serving a suspension caused by two failed drug tests, but he's now eligible to take the field for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Williams caught one pass for 14 yards, logging the reception on his only offensive snap.

Shaun Hill
News
Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin (knee) and quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) are active for Sunday's matchup with the Eagles.

Austin sprained his MCL in Week 2 and missed the team's Week 3 game heading into the bye, and he'll be available Sunday after being listed as questionable on the team's injury report. Hill, who was listed as probable, returns to a backup role behind starter Austin Davis.

Barrett Jones
News
Linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar, who was questionable with a thigh injury, is among the injured Rams cleared to face the Seahawks. He has 20 tackles in five games. Also suiting up are defensive tackle Alex Carrington (knee), center Barrett Jones (back) and running back Chase Reynolds (thigh).
Benny Cunningham
News
Rams running back Benny Cunningham was a late addition to the injury report due to a knee injury. He was a limited participant on Thursday. Cunningham has scored a touchdown in each of his past three games. He caught five passes for 46 yards and a score Week 7.

The Rams will face the Chiefs in Week 8.

Devon Wylie
News
The 49ers made several moves to trim the roster to 75 players Monday.

The team waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety D.J. Campbell, tight end Kevin Greene, running back Jewel Hampton, punt Colton Schmidt, linebacker Kion Wilson and wide receiver Devon Wylie, while also releasing wide receiver David Reed.

The team placed running back Marcus Lattimore, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury List and linebacker NaVorro Bowman, tight end Garrett Celek and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey were placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List. Linebacker Blake Costanzo was released from the Injured Reserve list.

Cory Harkey
News
The Rams got a slew of offensive contributions in their 28-26 home win over the Seahawks. Wideout Tavon Austin rushed five times for 16 yards and caught three of four targets for 6 yards. Receiver Chris Givens made a 30-yard catch, and wideout Kenny Britt caught two of three targets for 4 yards.

Tight end Cory Harkey added a 9-yard grab.

Zac Stacy
News
Rams coach Jeff Fisher indicated he has no problem with continuing to split carries among running backs Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason. In Sunday's loss at Kansas City, Mason got seven carries, Stacy received five and Cunningham, four.

"When they got their opportunities they all were productive," Fisher said. "The average per carry is about the same. We'll see. We may settle into something this week."

Fisher said the committee approach won't make it harder for his backs to get into a rhythm. St. Louis visits the 49ers in Week 9.

Mike Person
News
The Rams ruled receiver Tavon Austin (ankle), guard Harvey Dahl, offensive tackle Mike Person, defensive end Sammy Brown, running back Daryl Richardson (thigh), cornerback Quinton Pointer and defensive tackle Matt Conrath inactive for the game at Seattle.
Chris Long
News

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Daren Bates
News

All four players were listed as probable entering the game. Both Bates and Long were able to pass concussion protocal during the week.

News

Janoris Jenkins
News
Rams cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson could return from knee injuries to play Sunday at San Francisco, reports ESPN.com. Jenkins sat out Sunday with a right knee injury, while Johnson has yet to play this year due to a severe MCL sprain.
Injury
Knee - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Kenny Britt
News
Rams wideout Kenny Britt was limited by a hip injury in Wednesday's practice, reports ESPN.com. Britt is expected to be the team's No. 1 receiver now that Brian Quick is out for the season.

St. Louis visits San Francisco on Sunday.

Injury
Hip - Full practice. Probable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Trumaine Johnson
News
Rams cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson could return from knee injuries to play Sunday at San Francisco, reports ESPN.com. Jenkins sat out Sunday with a right knee injury, while Johnson has yet to play this year due to a severe MCL sprain.
Injury
Knee - Full practice. Probable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Jared Cook
News
Just as he seemed to be finding his way in the offense, Ravens tight end Owen Daniels has been sidelined surprisingly in Week 8 after undergoing an undisclosed knee procedure.

We loved Daniels' chances to find success Week 8 against the Bengals after hauling in six passes for 58 yards and a touchdown last week. Now he will miss at least one game, with his status moving forward unknown at this point. Fantasy owners in desperate need of a tight end for Week 8 might want to see if Charles Clay of the Dolphins or Jared Cook of the Rams is available right now.

Long-term, it is impossible to say just how this will impact Daniels. Coach John Harbaugh has not ruled him out for Week 9, but he might be limited even if he is able to return that quickly. Daniels isn't a must-drop Fantasy option, but he also isn't someone you absolutely have to have on your roster.

Still, Daniels was third on the team in targets, and that was with Dennis Pitta playing a huge role before his injury. If you have room on your roster, it might be worth hanging on to Daniels for one week to get a clearer picture.

Aaron Donald
News
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.

Injury
Shoulder - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Brad Smelley
News
The Rams have issued a series of cuts to reach the mandated roster of limit of 53 for the regular season.

Those on the offensive side of the ball are wide receivers Emory Blake, Austin Franklin and Justin Veltung, linemen Sean Hooey, Mitchell Van Dyk, Travis Bond and Brandon Washington, quarterback Garrett Gilbert and tight end Brad Smelley.

Defenders now gone are linemen Kourtnei Brown, Matt Conrath and Deantre Harlan, defensive backs Christian Bryant, Darren Woodard, Avery Cunningham and Greg Reid and linebackers Aaron Hill, Etienne Sabino, Phillip Seward and Lawrence Wilson.

The Rams also placed wideout Stedman Bailey on the reserved/suspended list.

Matt Conrath
News
The Rams ruled the following players inactive for Week 2 against the Buccaneers: Lamarcus Joyner, Trumaine Johnson, Tre Mason, Trey Watts, Barrett Jones, Matt Conrath, and Alex Bayer.
Chris Givens
News
The Rams got a slew of offensive contributions in their 28-26 home win over the Seahawks. Wideout Tavon Austin rushed five times for 16 yards and caught three of four targets for 6 yards. Receiver Chris Givens made a 30-yard catch, and wideout Kenny Britt caught two of three targets for 4 yards.

Tight end Cory Harkey added a 9-yard grab.

Will Herring
News
Linebacker Will Herring tweeted that he has signed with the Rams. Herring is a seven-year vet who played in every game last season for the Saints, making 13 tackles and an interception.
Maurice Alexander
News
Rams center Tim Barnes, cornerback Janoris Jenkins, cornerback Trumaine Johnson, quarterback Case Keenum, tight end Alex Bayer, defensive end Ethan Westbrooks and safety Maurice Alexander were all ruled inactive Week 8 at Kansas City.
Jo-Lonn Dunbar
News
Cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson are questionable with knee injuries, according to the injury report released Friday by the Rams for their Sunday game at Kansas City.

The only other non-probables are defensive back Brandon McGee (foot) and center Tim Barnes (shoulder). Both have been ruled out.

Deemed probable are wideout Kenny Britt (ankle), running back Benny Cunningham (knee), linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar (toe), defensive linemen Ethan Westbrooks (hand) and William Hayes (illness), safety T.J. McDonald (concussion), tackle Rodger Saffold (knee) and kicker Greg Zuerlein (illness).

Injury
Toe - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Justice Cunningham
News
The Rams reached an injury settlement Tuesday with tight end Justice Cunningham (ankle), according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
T.J. McDonald
News
Rams starting strong safety T.J. McDonald had declared himself "fine" after sitting out Wednesday practice as part of concussion protocol and returning to the field Thursday on a limited basis, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

McDonald has not missed a snap this season and appears all but set to play in Week 8 at Kansas City. He has contributed to 38 tackles.

Alec Ogletree
News
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.

Eugene Sims
News
Two key Rams defenders who were on the injury report are active for Monday's game against the 49ers. Linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar was questionable with a groin injury, while defensive end Eugene Sims was probable with a groin injury.
Isaiah Pead
News
Rams running back Isaiah Pead has cleared waivers, landing him on injured reserve.

Pead, who earned just 17 carries in 2012 and 2013 combined for St. Louis, tore his ACL in the second preseason game.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season
Trey Watts
News
Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the team's running back situation will continue to be a "week-to-week thing," adding Zac Stacy's lack of playing time Sunday wasn't an indicator of things to come. Stacy played one snap and got zero carries in the win over the Seahawks.

"We’ve got three outstanding runners," Fisher said, referring to Stacy, Benny Cunningham and rookie Tre Mason. "And as I mentioned, we think Trey Watts can also help us, so we’re going to use them all. It’ll be a week-to-week thing. Zac could get 25 carries this week. We had some things in early this week. It was working so we decided to stay with ‘Mase.' It’s nothing that Zac has done or hasn’t done. He’s been a little banged up the last couple of weeks, but obviously he’s an outstanding runner as well. We clearly have significant depth there at the position."

Fisher noted Stacy missed practice time the past couple weeks due to calf and ankle injuries.

"The good thing about this is he’ll come back and should be 100 percent this week and just see where it goes," Fisher said.

The Rams visit the Chiefs in Week 8.

Marshall McFadden
News
The Rams promoted linebacker Marshall McFadden from the practice squad to the active roster, the team announced.
Joe Barksdale
News
Rams defensive end William Hayes (knee), offensive tackle Rodger Saffold (knee) and offensive tackle Joe Barksdale (personal matter) all did not practice on Tuesday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. 

The trio of players are all considered questionable for the Week 4 game on Thursday night at home against the 49ers at this point. 

Ethan Westbrooks
News
Rams center Tim Barnes, cornerback Janoris Jenkins, cornerback Trumaine Johnson, quarterback Case Keenum, tight end Alex Bayer, defensive end Ethan Westbrooks and safety Maurice Alexander were all ruled inactive Week 8 at Kansas City.
Jake Long
News
Rams coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Monday that offensive lineman Jake Long will miss the remainder of the season after re-injuring his knee Sunday against the Chiefs. Long suffered a torn ACL and MCL late last season.

"Jake has re-torn his ACL. He will be out for the remainder of the season," Fisher said, per the team's official website. "Jake worked really, really hard to get back. And it’s kind of an isolated incident, isolated contact, and it’s just kind of a freak thing. We just appreciate him … his work, and the difficulty associated with coming back from that injury. But he’s done it once, and he’ll do it again."

Injury
Brandon Washington
News
The Rams elevated guard Brandon Washington to the active roster, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He takes the spot vacated by wideout Brian Quick, who went on injured reserve.
Marcus Roberson
News
The Rams signed 15 free agents from the college ranks: tight end Alex Bayer (Bowling Green), cornerbacks Jarrid Bryant (South Dakota) and Marcus Roberson (Florida), receivers Austin Franklin (New Mexico) and Jamaine Sherman (East Texas Baptist), running back Trey Watts (Tulsa), linebackers Aaron Hill (Minnesota), Johnny Millard (Cal Poly State) and Tavarius Wilson (North Alabama), defensive tackles Ethan Westbrooks (West Texas A&M) and Deantre Harlan (Bacone), safety Avery Cunningham (Central Michigan), fullback Kadeem Jones (Western Kentucky) and offensive tackles Emmanuel McCray (Mississippi) and Abasi Salimu (Nicholls State).

Injury
Ankle - Full practice. Probable for Week 9 at San Francisco
Brian Quick
News
Rams coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Monday that wideout Brian Quick is out for the season. Fisher said Quick has "significant damage to his shoulder." Reports indicate Quick dislocated his shoulder and tore his rotator cuff Sunday against the Chiefs.
Injury
Shoulder - IR. Out for season
Tre Mason
News
Even if you don't buy coach Jeff Fisher's assessment that the Rams' running back situation is a "week-to-week thing" and that ousted running back Zac Stacy "could get 25 carries this week," it doesn't change the fact that he said it, and he's the only who really knows anything. 

That concerns me as someone who put in a big bid for Tre Mason in Fantasy this week. When Mason ran for 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries against Seattle in Week 7, it wasn't just a breakthrough performance for him. It was also the best individual rushing performance the Rams have had all season. And Stacy is largely to blame for that. His longest run in five games this season was a 16-yarder Week 3 against Dallas. Mason in two games already has two runs longer than that.

The matchup Week 8 at Kansas City isn't a slam dunk. The Chiefs rank in the middle of the pack against the run, but because they have yet to allow a touchdown on the ground, they've allowed the sixth-fewest Fantasy points per game to running backs. It wouldn't be enough to scare me away from Mason if I could trust he has a feature role, but with Fisher getting cute about it, I can't.

Since Mason appears to be the Rams' best rusher, I think he will eventually, but Mason seems like a better stash than start except in an emergency right now.

Kendall Langford
News
Rams head coach Jeff Fisher told reporters that Michael Brockers, Kendall Langford and Rodger Saffold could "potentially play" Thursday's preseason finale, according to the team's official website. All three players left with ankle injuries Saturday.
Robert Quinn
News
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.

Greg Zuerlein
News
Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein finished with a season-low one point during a 34-7 loss Week 8 at Kansas City.

He made his only extra-point attempt after the Rams opened the game with a touchdown on their opening drive. He missed his only field-goal attempt -- a 38-yarder that went wide right in the second quarter.

The Rams are back in action Week 9 at San Francisco. Zuerlein had five points in a Week 6 loss against the 49ers.

Tim Barnes
News
Rams center Tim Barnes, cornerback Janoris Jenkins, cornerback Trumaine Johnson, quarterback Case Keenum, tight end Alex Bayer, defensive end Ethan Westbrooks and safety Maurice Alexander were all ruled inactive Week 8 at Kansas City.
Brandon McGee
News
The Rams placed cornerback Brandon McGee (foot) on injured reserve Saturday. He hasn't played since Week 2 and will miss the remainder of the season with the injury.

The team promoted defensive back Jemea Thomas from the practice squad to fill the open roster spot. He has yet to play in a regular-season game this season.

Injury
Foot - IR. Out for season
Mark Barron
News
Safety Mark Barron said he "was definitely in shock" when he learned the news he was being traded from the Buccaneers to the Rams Tuesday.

However, now that the shock has worn off, Barron is excited for a new start with the Rams, particularly because he feels he is better suited for St. Louis' defensive scheme, per ESPN.

"Did I think we could have been doing more, using me more? Yeah, I do," Barron said of his defensive role with the Bucs. "But I wouldn’t say it played against my strengths. It was just the way the system was ran. 

"[Tampa's system] is passive. That’s kind of the only thing I didn’t like about it. A lot of times I had to sit back and I couldn’t really be as aggressive as I wanted to in that system."

Lance Kendricks
News
Rams tight end Lance Kendricks made his only catch Sunday against the Chiefs count, as he recorded his fourth touchdown of the season. He now has a touchdown in three straight games.

Kendricks finished off the team's opening drive with a 1-yard touchdown reception. It gave St. Louis its only lead of the game as Kansas City rallied for a 34-7 win.

The four touchdowns ties a career high, which Kendricks managed in the previous two seasons. The Rams are back in action Week 9 at San Francisco.

Steven Baker
News
The Dolphins waived tackle Steven Baker and safety Demetrius Wright Monday and waived/injured kicker John Potter.

Emory Blake
News
The Rams have issued a series of cuts to reach the mandated roster of limit of 53 for the regular season.

Those on the offensive side of the ball are wide receivers Emory Blake, Austin Franklin and Justin Veltung, linemen Sean Hooey, Mitchell Van Dyk, Travis Bond and Brandon Washington, quarterback Garrett Gilbert and tight end Brad Smelley.

Defenders now gone are linemen Kourtnei Brown, Matt Conrath and Deantre Harlan, defensive backs Christian Bryant, Darren Woodard, Avery Cunningham and Greg Reid and linebackers Aaron Hill, Etienne Sabino, Phillip Seward and Lawrence Wilson.

The Rams also placed wideout Stedman Bailey on the reserved/suspended list.

Austin Davis
News
Remember when Rams quarterback Austin Davis was looking like a sneaky pickup in Fantasy? With back-to-back sub-200 yard games, he's back to performing like a backup thrust into a starting role, as I mentioned in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog. Oh, and now he's without his best wide receiver, Brian Quick, for the season. It's really quite sad.

Granted, he hasn't had the most favorable matchups to work with the last few weeks. The decline actually began against the 49ers in Week 6, but then, they're the eighth-best team against the pass. The Seahawks, regardless of where they rank, are still the Seahawks, and the Chiefs, Davis' Week 8 opponent, are actually No. 1 against the pass.

But clearly, you're scraping the bottom of the barrel if you turn to Davis in Fantasy. He is, in fact, a backup quarterback for a team whose starter left something to be desired himself. And hey, he's facing the 49ers again in Week 9 -- this time on the road -- so we should have a pretty good idea how that'll go.

James Laurinaitis
News
Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis is only a maybe for the Saturday night game in Cleveland. An ankle injury could keep him sidelined for the third straight game.

Laurinaitis practiced this week and ramped up his activity every day. He did some full-team work Thursday, the last full-scale workout before the clash against the Browns in which the starters will receive the longest look of the preseason. Jeff Fisher sounded as if he could flip a coin to predict whether Laurinaitis will play.

"Don't know whether he's going to go; it will be very close," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Laurinaitis has racked up at least 114 tackles in each of his first five years in the NFL. He recorded a career-high 3 1/2 sacks in 2013.

Scott Wells
News
The Rams listed three offensive linemen on the injury report for Week 3 against the Cowboys, though only one is expected to be sidelined Sunday.

Barrett Jones (back) has been ruled out for the game, while Rodger Saffold (illness) is probable after sitting out Thursday's practice session. Scott Wells is also probable, though his absence from practice was not related to any injuries. 

Michael Brockers
News
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.

Cody Davis
News
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.
