Will the Rams be able to get these key players back for Sunday?

The Los Angeles Rams released their injury report to the media Thursday and it was a cause for concern for a few players. According to head coach Sean McVay, linebacker Leonard Floyd tweaked his ankle before the season started and said it’s just been an ongoing healing/management process and that’s why Floyd has been out of practice. McVay said they’re trying to get a grasp on...

Talk about Thursday Night Football!

The surprising 2-0 Carolina Panthers are on the road to face a Houston Texans team that was close to nabbing a 2-0 record themselves prior to a Tyrod Taylor injury in Week 2. Now Taylor has been replaced by another Pac-12 rookie, in this case Davis Mills out of Stanford. Will Sam Darnold help the Panthers reach 3-0 or does Mills have a Thursday shocker up his sleeve?

Talk about it right here!

Stafford’s been great in the first two games. How great? The numbers say it all.

It is beyond exciting to write about a great quarterback, if you get the privilege to write about the NFL. By all accounts, when the LA Rams traded for Matthew Stafford in January, they got received a great quarterback.

Tampa Bay could be without Jason Pierre-Paul this weekend

The LA Rams might avoid having to block pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, but that does not necessarily mean that Sean McVay’s offense is “catching a break.” That’s because the Bucs drafted a player in the first round this year who they believe has the talent to not only become their best pass rusher in the long-term, he could also...

Every time Brady’s faced Stafford, he’s won the Super Bowl; this is Stafford’s best opportunity to stop that

The biggest free agent of 2020 and the biggest trade acquisition of 2021 will both take the field at SoFi Stadium when the LA Rams host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. How Tom Brady and Matthew Stafford each got to their respective teams is somewhat of a football miracle, but in this timeline the Rams and Bucs look like the two...

What to know about Tampa Bay and Tom Brady

We are only approaching the third week of the season but from what we have seen so far, the LA Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered the year with high expectations and have thus far played like the two best teams in the league. Just the opportunity to see Aaron Donald rushing towards Tom Brady, quite possibly the two most important players in the NFL right now, is enough to call it one of the top-five matchups on...

The Los Angeles Rams held running back Darrell Henderson out of practice on Wednesday due to a rib cartilage injury suffered in Week 2, as well as starting outside linebacker Leonard Floyd because of an issue with his ankle. Should Henderson miss this weekend’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, backup Sony Michel would likely take over his snaps, but LA might not be leaning much on the running...

What’s going on with the Rams’ expensive outside linebacker?

It was barely more than a year ago that we wrote about how Rams linebacker Micah Kiser missed seven tackles in a Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Kiser eventually cleaned up that act and only missed three tackles over his next eight starts, but he also gave way to be replaced by Troy Reeder, was cut after training camp this year, and on Wednesday was picked up by the Broncos.

Rams lose LB Micah Kiser to Broncos

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Kiser started nine games in 2020 but quickly fell out of favor

The Los Angeles Rams chose to release linebacker Micah Kiser at final cuts, but when no team picked him up on waivers, Kiser re-signed to the Rams practice squad and had an opportunity to re-join his teammates in a regular season game at any moment. That’s what happened in Week 2, and Kiser was activated in time to play 17 special teams snaps in LA’s 27-24 win over the Indianapolis...

The Los Angeles Rams activated rookie linebacker Chris Garrett from the COVID-19 reserve list on Tuesday and while it isn’t evident that Sean McVay would feel that the seventh round pick out of Concordia is ready for action on defense quite yet, the team needs as many healthy players as possible for this weekend’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Will Darrell Henderson miss any games?

A rib cartilage injury cost Akers two games last year

The Los Angeles Rams received devastating news in July when Cam Akers tore his Achilles, but at least Sean McVay knew that he had an experienced running back in his system with backup Darrell Henderson. It was Henderson who rushed for 195 yards on 32 carries in Weeks 2 and 3 of last season when Akers suffered a rib cartilage injury in mid-September.
