 Latest Rams Player Notes
Jan 17 2018 - Jake McQuaide
  LS Jake McQuaide was named to the NFC roster for the upcoming Pro Bowl, the team announced Wednesday. McQuaide will head to his second straight Pro Bowl and join running back Todd Gurley, punter Johnny Hekker and kick returner Pharoh Cooper on the NFC's roster for the Rams.


Jan 10 2018 - Robert Woods
  WR Robert Woods was called a possession receiver when he joined the Rams from Buffalo, but was so much more while catching 56 passes for 781 yards and continuing to be a productive blocker.


Jan 10 2018 - Alec Ogletree
  LB Alec Ogletree has seen the worst in the Rams, so he was particularly pleased with the turnaround season this year. And he was especially thrilled with playing under veteran defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. "Oh yeah, it's great defense. He's a great coach, and the coaches he had around him, everybody did a tremendous job," Ogletree said.


Jan 10 2018 - John Johnson
  S John Johnson took over the starting role early in his rookie season and turned out to be a revelation while amassing 75 tackles and solidifying the back end of the defense in run and pass support.


Jan 10 2018 - Tavon Austin
  WR Tavon Austin carved out a role for himself, it was nowhere near worth the $13 million the Rams paid him. They hoped to get Pro-Bowl numbers out of him upon signing him to a lucrative extension last year; instead they got a high-paid decoy.


Jan 10 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley II rebounded from a rough second season to become one of the most dangerous weapons in the game.


Jan 10 2018 - Aaron Donald
  DT Aaron Donald cemented his place as the best interior lineman in the game, a player the Rams can build a decisive, dominant defense around.


Jan 10 2018 - Jared Goff
  QB Jared Goff developed into a Pro-Bowl caliber quarterback in his second season.


Jan 8 2018 - Pharoh Cooper
  KR Pharoh Cooper had two costly turnovers that led to 10 first-quarter points for the Falcons and, ultimately, completely altered the dynamics of the game. The Rams never recovered.


Jan 8 2018 - Cooper Kupp
  WR Cooper Kupp hauled in a 14-yard touchdown pass in his first playoff game. It marked his sixth touchdown of the season and first of the postseason. Kupp finished the game with eight catches for 69 yards. Kupp is the first Rams rookie in franchise history to catch eight passes in a postseason game.


Jan 8 2018 - Robert Woods
  WR Robert Woods registered his third 100-plus receiving yard game this season and sixth game of his career in his first playoff game. Woods led the team in receptions (nine) and receiving yards (142). The 142 receiving yards are the fourth-highest output in a postseason game in Rams history. Woods is the fourth receiver in franchise history to post 100-plus receiving yards in their postseason debut with the Rams.


Jan 8 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley rushed 14 times for 101 yards, a 7.2-yard average, in his first playoff game. Gurley had two long rushes of 26 and 33 yards. It marked Gurley's seventh game this season with 100-plus yards, his first of the postseason and 12th career. Gurley is the first Rams running back to notch a 100-plus yard game in his postseason debut since Jim Gillette had 17 carries for 101 yards vs. Washington (12/16/45).


Jan 8 2018 - Jared Goff
  QB Jared Goff completed 24-of-45 passes for 259 yards and one touchdown in his first playoff game. Goff's 45 pass attempts are tied for the second-most in franchise postseason history with Kurt Warner, vs. Tennessee (1/30/00 -- SB XXXIV) and Jim Everett, at Minnesota (12/26/88).


Jan 8 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins, who the Rams traded for in hopes he'd be the dynamic go-to wide receiver they've been missing for so long, had a good but not great season statistically. He caught 39 passes for 593 yards and eight touchdowns. But in many ways, he became a more complete player while accepting his role, developing into a better blocker and running crisp routes even though much of the time it was as a decoy. Watkins is a free agent at the end of the season, but seems eager to return on a long-term contract.


Jan 7 2018 - Robert Woods
  WR Robert Woods paced the receivers with 142 yards on nine receptions.


Jan 7 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley led all rushers with 101 yards on 14 carries for Los Angeles.


Jan 7 2018 - Jared Goff
  QB Jared Goff completed 24-of-45 passes for 259 yards and a score. "They did a real nice job of keeping us on the sidelines," Goff said. "Hats off to them because they played really well. But we didn't do enough to win. They did a great job defensively."


Jan 7 2018 - Michael Brockers
  DT Michael Brockers (knee) didn't play the second half.


Jan 4 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for December despite sitting out the team's season finale, the NFL announced Thursday. Gurley rolled up 440 yards and five touchdowns on the ground and added 22 receptions for 309 yards with three scores in the impressive four-game stretch.


Jan 3 2018 - Mark Barron
  LB Mark Barron was limited in practice Wednesday because of an Achilles tendon injury.


Jan 3 2018 - Mike Thomas
  WR Michael Thomas did not practice Wednesday because of an ankle injury.


Jan 3 2018 - Blake Countess
  CB Blake Countess was limited in practice Wednesday and is still in concussion protocol.


Jan 3 2018 - Pharoh Cooper
  WR Pharoh Cooper did not practice Wednesday with a shoulder injury.


Jan 1 2018 - Johnny Hekker
  P Johnny Hekker averaged 48 yards on seven punts against the 49ers.


Jan 1 2018 - Malcolm Brown
  Malcolm Brown led the way with 54 yards on 14 carries against the 49ers.


Jan 1 2018 - Kevin Peterson
  CB Kevin Peterson intercepted 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo on Sunday and returned it 38 yards to the San Francisco 22-yard line. He added a second interception. The last Rams player to have two interceptions in a game was Trumaine Johnson vs. Oakland on Nov. 30, 2014.


Jan 1 2018 - Mike Thomas
  WR Mike Thomas hauled in a 50-yard reception in Sunday's season finale. The Rams have six players with receptions of 50-plus yards: Thomas, Robert Woods, Gerald Everett, Sammy Watkins, Todd Gurley II and Cooper Kupp. Thomas led the team in receiving yards with three catches for 75 yards.


Jan 1 2018 - Sean Mannion
  QB Sean Mannion made his first career start and completed 20 of 34 passes for 169 yards, including a long of 50 yards.


Jan 1 2018 - Sean Mannion
  QB Sean Mannion started in place of a resting Jared Goff, and he completed 20 of 34 passes for 169 yards Sunday in a loss to the 49ers. Mannion said he did not feel shortchanged that his first start of the season was with a mostly second-string outfit. "I have the utmost confidence in every guy on this roster," Mannion said. "I thought all the guys that were out there fought their tails off."


Jan 1 2018 - Aaron Donald
  DT Aaron Donald did not play in the regular-season finale Sunday.


Jan 1 2018 - Jared Goff
  QB Jared Goff did not play in the regular-season finale Sunday.


Jan 1 2018 - Kevin Peterson
  CB Kevin Peterson made the most of his first NFL start, snagging two interceptions Sunday. "Yeah, that's awesome," Peterson said. "I'm really more mad because I feel like I made some worse plays than the interceptions, so I didn't really get a chance to celebrate those."


Jan 1 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley II was the NFL's leading rusher going into Week 17. He did not play Sunday, which probably cost him the league rushing title. Chiefs RB Kareem Hunt, who trailed Gurley by 13 yards going into Sunday, rushed one time for 35 yards against Denver to pass Gurley. And Gurley was fine with it. "Congratulations to him," Gurley said. "He deserves it." Gurley remains a chief candidate for NFL MVP honors.


Jan 1 2018 - Blake Countess
  S Blake Countess' hit on 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin left Goodwin on the field for several minutes before he was carted off. Goodwin dived for a ball that was out of his reach. Countess launched himself to where QB Jimmy Garoppolo's pass would have met Goodwin's hands and popped Goodwin's head. "It's unbelievable the safety did that," Garoppolo said. "That's not good for our sport, it's not good for anybody. It's just a dirty play. But, it's football. I mean, it happens."


Dec 31 2017 - Aaron Donald
  DT Aaron Donald is on the Los Angeles Rams' list of inactive players for Sunday's home game against the San Francisco 49ers. Los Angeles has clinched the NFC West championship, and Sunday's game at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum had little meaning for the Rams, who are guaranteed to host a playoff home game on Jan. 6 or 7. Donald leads the Rams in sacks this season with 11.


Dec 31 2017 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley II is on the Los Angeles Rams' list of inactive players for Sunday's home game against the San Francisco 49ers. Los Angeles has clinched the NFC West championship, and Sunday's game at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum had little meaning for the Rams, who are guaranteed to host a playoff home game on Jan. 6 or 7. Among the numerous lineup changes announced by the Rams was Malcolm Brown starting at running back in place of Gurley, a leading candidate for NFL MVP honors.


Dec 31 2017 - Jared Goff
  The Los Angeles Rams announced that Sean Mannion was starting at QB in place of Jared Goff in the regular-season finale against the San Francisco 49ers. Los Angeles has clinched the NFC West championship, and Sunday's game at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum had little meaning for the Rams, who are guaranteed to host a playoff home game on Jan. 6 or 7.


Dec 27 2017 - Mark Barron
  LB Mark Barron did not practice Wednesday with an Achilles injury.


Dec 27 2017 - Cooper Kupp
  WR Cooper Kupp did not practice Wednesday with a knee injury.


Dec 26 2017 - Cory Littleton
  LB Cory Littleton intercepted Titans QB Marcus Mariota on their opening drive on Sunday for his first career interception. Littleton also added a sack of Mariota, the first of his career.


Dec 26 2017 - Jared Goff
  QB Jared Goff (3,804) passed former QB Sam Bradford (3,512) for the 10th-highest and ninth-highest (3,702) single-season passing yard output in franchise history. Goff (28) passed Roman Gabriel (25) for the sixth-most passing touchdowns in a season in franchise history. Goff (16) passed Jim Everett (14 in 1992) for the fourth-highest single-season passing touchdown output on the road in franchise history.


Dec 26 2017 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley II is making a strong push for NFL MVP honors. Gurley had 118 yards on 22 carries and added 10 catches 158 yards and two touchdowns agains the Titans. In doing so, he surpassed 2,000 all-purpose yards. Gurley leads the NFL in rushing yards with 1,305, all-purpose yards with 2,093, rushing touchdowns with 13, and total touchdowns with 19.


Dec 26 2017 - Sam Ficken
  K Sam Ficken was working at a brokerage firm in Connecticut a week ago before signing with the Rams. He missed a field goal and an extra point early Sunday, but then nailed three extra points. "He found a way to respond and came away being able to make the rest of the opportunities that he did have," Rams head coach Sean McVay said. Whether that means Ficken sticks around beyond this week remains to be seen.


Dec 24 2017 - Jared Goff
  QB Jared Goff connected on 22 of 38 passes for 301 yards and four touchdowns, including a 14-yarder to a diving Cooper Kupp with 11:51 left in the game that erased a 23-20 deficit.


Dec 24 2017 - Todd Gurley
  RBmTodd Gurley rushed 22 times for 118 yards while catching 10 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns, becoming the first player since Herschel Walker of the 1986 Dallas Cowboys to run for 100 yards and rack up 150 receiving yards in the same game. "He's good, man," Tennessee linebacker Avery Williamson said. "He's a good player, man, one of the best in the league. They use him in a lot of ways."


Dec 21 2017 - Greg Zuerlein
  K Greg Zuerlein is undergoing season-ending back surgery on Thursday and was placed on injured reserve by the team. Zuerlein's surgery is to repair a herniated disk and his recovery period is slated to be approximately 12 weeks.


Dec 20 2017 - Robert Quinn
  LB Robert Quinn missed time each of the last two seasons because of injuries, so the Rams limited his practice time and workload this year. The approach seems to be working as Quinn looks fresh and energetic lately while playing some of his best football of the season. Quinn has six sacks over the last four games.


Dec 20 2017 - Greg Zuerlein
  K Greg Zuerlein was named to the Pro Bowl. He's averaging 11.2 points a game, putting him on pace to score over 180 points after scoring a league-high 158 points in the team's first 14 games.


Dec 20 2017 - Johnny Hekker
  P Johnny Hekker was named to his forth Pro Bowl. He has pinned 50 percent of his punts inside the 20-yard line, tied for second-best mark in the NFL.


Dec 20 2017 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley was named to the Pro Bowl. Gurley has posted 1,817 yards from scrimmage in 14 games this season and 17 total touchdowns. Has 527 rushing attempts for 1,187 yards (4.6 yards per rush) with 13 rushing touchdowns.
