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 is doubtful to return to play Sunday due to a neck injury, the team announced. Saffold was replaced on the field by No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson.
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 receiver Tavon Austin missed Wednesday's practice with a strained knee. While coach Jeff Fisher has not ruled him out, Austin is unlikely to play Sunday against the Cowboys.
Injury
Knee - Left Week 2 at Tampa Bay
Shaun Hill
News
Rams quarterback Shaun Hill (thigh) probably won't practice Wednesday but might be able to do limited work Thursday, coach Jeff Fisher told ESPN.com. Fisher reiterated that if Hill is healthy, he'll start Sunday against the Cowboys.

However, the team could choose to hold out Hill because the Rams have a Week 4 bye and third-stringer Austin Davis played well in the Week 2 win at Tampa Bay.

Barrett Jones
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.
Benny Cunningham
News
Rams running back Benny Cunningham took a backseat again to Zac Stacy in a Week 2 win over the Buccaneers.

Cunningham, who had just five carries in the opener against the Vikings, was often used as the team's third down back, and as a result, he was limited to seven touches. Cunningham took six handoffs for 15 yards, averaging 2.5 yards per attempt. He caught one of the two passes thrown his way for a gain of 4 yards in a 19-17 victory.

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

Chase Reynolds
News
Rams rookie running back Tre Mason has a long way to go to earn meaningful snaps. The team's first depth chart lists him on the fourth team, behind starter Zac Stacy, backup Benny Cunningham and third-stringers Isaiah Pead and Chase Reynolds.

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

Cory Harkey
News

Zac Stacy
News
Rams running back Zac Stacy received the bulk of the carries and scored his first touchdown of the season Week 2 against Tampa Bay.

Stacy ripped a 7-yard run on his first touch of the afternoon. He took six handoffs for 23 yards on the opening drive, which was capped off by a 1-yard touchdown run. He lost a fumble in the third quarter, which resulted in a Tampa Bay touchdown. Stacy finished the game with 19 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown, averaging 3.7 yards per attempt in a 19-17 victory. He was not targeted in the passing game.

Stacy has 30 carries for 114 yards and a touchdown on the ground through two games. He will look to stay productive at home against the Cowboys in Week 3.

The following reserves will also sit out: Cornerback Darren Woodard, safety Matt Daniels, fullback Kadeem Jones, defensive end Sammy Brown, center Demetrius Rhaney, center/guard Barrett Jones, guard Brandon Washington, defensive end William Hayes

Kenny Britt
News
Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt, who was held without a grab last week, failed to make any impact Sunday afternoon against Tampa Bay in Week 2.

Even with Tavon Austin sidelined with a knee injury, Britt was held in check by the Buccaneers' defense. He was held without a reception in the first quarter and limited to only two touches in a 19-17 victory. He came down with a 17-yard grab late in the third quarter and took an end-around for a pick-up of 12 yards in the fourth quarter.

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

Trumaine Johnson
News

News
Rams tight ends Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks shared the load in the passing game against the Buccaneers in Week 2.

Both tight ends were targeted four times by backup Austin Davis. Cook finished as the team's second-leading receiver, catching all four of his targets for 46 yards. Kendricks was held to just one catch for a gain of 7 yards in the first half. He caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 25 yards in a 19-17 victory.

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

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.

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.

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 starting cornerback Trumaine Johnson is inactive for Sunday's game due to a knee injury.

Johnson was ruled out of Week 1 competition after not practicing all week. The Rams have also listed the following players as inactive for Week 1 against the Vikings: quarterback Case Keenum, running back Tre Mason, safety Maurice Alexander, offensive lineman Barrett Jones (back), tight end Alex Bayer and defensive lineman Ethan Westbrooks.

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.

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.
