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
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. 

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 6, pick 214: Garrett Gilbert, QB, Southern Methodist
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
Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin (knee) is inactive after being listed as questionable on the team's final Week 3 injury report.

Austin was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning in a limited fashion Friday, but he was unable to get cleared to face the Cowboys. Tight end Cory Harkey (knee) and quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) were also listed as questionable but are active for Sunday's game.

Other Rams inactives for Week 3 include cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson and Brandon McGee, offensive lineman Barrett Jones, quarterback Case Keenum, running back Tre Mason and safety Maurice Alexander.

Injury
Knee - Missed Week 3 vs. Dallas
Jemea Thomas
News
The Cowboys signed defensive back Jemea Thomas and offensive tackle John Wetzel to the practice squad Tuesday.
Shaun Hill
News
Rams quarterback Shaun Hill will retake the starting job Week 5, after the team's bye, if he is fully healed from his thigh injury, coach Jeff Fisher said. Hill was active Week 3 but did not play as Austin Davis played his second straight game.

"We kept him up as the No. 2 because I felt like he could finish a game out of the shotgun," Fisher said of Hill. "But he's not ready to go under center yet."

Fisher reiterated that Hill "is our starter and Austin is our backup."

Davis completed 30 of 42 throws for 327 yards and three touchdowns in the loss to the Cowboys but threw two interceptions, including a pick-six.

Barrett Jones
News
Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin (knee) is inactive after being listed as questionable on the team's final Week 3 injury report.

Austin was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning in a limited fashion Friday, but he was unable to get cleared to face the Cowboys. Tight end Cory Harkey (knee) and quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) were also listed as questionable but are active for Sunday's game.

Other Rams inactives for Week 3 include cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson and Brandon McGee, offensive lineman Barrett Jones, quarterback Case Keenum, running back Tre Mason and safety Maurice Alexander.

Benny Cunningham
News
The Rams put a scare into Fantasy owner's hearts when Benny Cunningham got the start in the third preseason warmup game, but coaches were quick to stand by Zac Stacy as the team's lead back. After three games, the numbers back that up, but Stacy's hold on the role is clearly more tenuous than we might have thought even a month ago.

For the second time in three games, Stacy basically split the workload with Cunningham in Week 3. Stacy and Cunningham both played 34 of the team's 76, similar to Week 1, when Cunningham actually played one more snap. The overall season workload is skewed in Stacy's favor thanks to a 40-18 split in Week 2, but it's pretty clear these two are in a timeshare.

Stacy has been able to hold off Cunningham by just flat outworking him so far, averaging 4.3 yards per carry to Cunningham's 3.3. Stacy has also been more effective in the passing game, though it is concerning that Cunningham is still encroaching on his playing time with those edges.

At this point, both players need to be owned in all Fantasy leagues, as long as the team splits their time so evenly. However, until Stacy either pushed Cunningham out of the picture or abdicates the role, neither will be a particularly reliable Fantasy option.

News

A third-round draft pick, Mason shares the fourth line of the depth chart with undrafted back Trey Watts.

Cory Harkey
News

Austin was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning in a limited fashion Friday, but he was unable to get cleared to face the Cowboys. Tight end Cory Harkey (knee) and quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) were also listed as questionable but are active for Sunday's game.

Denicos Allen
News
Stedman Bailey
News
Under the NFL's new drug policy, Rams receiver Stedman Bailey doesn't have to serve the rest of his four-game suspension, the league announced. He's eligible to play Sunday against the Cowboys.
Janoris Jenkins
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.

Kenny Britt
News
Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt caught five of his seven targets for 69 yards in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys in Week 3.

Britt was largely absent in the first two weeks of the season, catching his only target for 17 yards and gaining 12 yards on a rush attempt. He turned that around Sunday while also adding two yards on another rush attempt. Britt will look to get more involved in the game plan moving forward, starting with the team's Week 5 matchup with the Eagles.

Trumaine Johnson
News
Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin (knee) is inactive after being listed as questionable on the team's final Week 3 injury report.

Austin was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning in a limited fashion Friday, but he was unable to get cleared to face the Cowboys. Tight end Cory Harkey (knee) and quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) were also listed as questionable but are active for Sunday's game.

Other Rams inactives for Week 3 include cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson and Brandon McGee, offensive lineman Barrett Jones, quarterback Case Keenum, running back Tre Mason and safety Maurice Alexander.

Injury
Knee - Missed Week 3 vs. Dallas
Jared Cook
News
Rams tight end Jared Cook led the Rams in receiving Sunday, catching seven of his nine targets for 75 yards in his team's 34-31 loss to the Cowboys.

It wasn't all positive for Cook, who appeared to shove past his quarterback on the sideline after a fourth-quarter imcompletion stalled a Rams drive at the Dallas 10-yard line and forced the team to kick a field goal. The pair hooked up for two receptions to open the team's next drive, which would result in a touchdown to bring the team to within three points. Cook has caught 15 of his 21 targets for 177 yards over the first three weeks. He'll get the next week off before the Rams head to Philadelphia in Week 5.

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.

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 received minor contributions from a couple of role players in a Week 2 win over Tampa Bay. Chris Givens and Cory Harkey were each targeted twice by backup Austin Davis. Harkey caught both targets for 8 yards, while Givens was held to just one catch for 15 yards.
Maurice Alexander
News
Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin (knee) is inactive after being listed as questionable on the team's final Week 3 injury report.

Austin was held out of practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning in a limited fashion Friday, but he was unable to get cleared to face the Cowboys. Tight end Cory Harkey (knee) and quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) were also listed as questionable but are active for Sunday's game.

Other Rams inactives for Week 3 include cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson and Brandon McGee, offensive lineman Barrett Jones, quarterback Case Keenum, running back Tre Mason and safety Maurice Alexander.

Jo-Lonn Dunbar
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.

T.J. McDonald
News
The Rams are expected to start T.J. McDonald at strong safety while drafting a free safety to play alongside him, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. McDonald missed six games with a broken leg as a rookie but finished strong, recording 52 tackles, four pass breakups, an interception and a sack.

Austin Davis
News
Rams quarterback Shaun Hill will retake the starting job Week 5, after the team's bye, if he is fully healed from his thigh injury, coach Jeff Fisher said. Hill was active Week 3 but did not play as Austin Davis played his second straight game.

"We kept him up as the No. 2 because I felt like he could finish a game out of the shotgun," Fisher said of Hill. "But he's not ready to go under center yet."

Fisher reiterated that Hill "is our starter and Austin is our backup."

Davis completed 30 of 42 throws for 327 yards and three touchdowns in the loss to the Cowboys but threw two interceptions, including a pick-six.

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.

Greg Robinson
News
The Rams will start offensive lineman Rodger Saffold at guard Sunday over No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

"We made the decision for the opener that we're better off going with experience,'' head coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday. "Doesn't necessarily mean (Robinson) won't play in the game, but we're going to go with guys who have a lot of snaps under their belts.''

Fisher added that Robinson "has done it all through preseason and he's gotten better each week."
