Sep 18 2017 - Morgan Fox
  DE Morgan Fox registered his first career sack on Redskins QB Kirk Cousins.


Sep 18 2017 - Gerald Everett
  TE Gerald Everett suffered a thigh contusion Sunday and is day to day. Before the injury, Everett hauled in a 69-yard reception from Jared Goff, the longest reception by a Rams tight end since former TE Lance Kendricks recorded an 80-yard touchdown pass vs. Tampa Bay in 2012. The play is the longest pass by the Rams since WR Brian Quick notched a 73-yard reception vs. Carolina in 2013.


Sep 18 2017 - Aaron Donald
  DT Aaron Donald, a contract holdout through training camp and the team's season opener, made his 2017 debut Sunday. He played in most defensive series and finished with two tackles.


Sep 18 2017 - Gerald Everett
  TE Gerald Everett had 95 receiving yards on three receptions before exiting the game because of a thigh injury. Everett was the Rams' top choice in the 2017 draft, having been taken in the second round.


Sep 18 2017 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley ran for 88 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries, for an average of 5.5 yards a carry. Gurley also had 48 receiving yards on three catches, including a touchdown. "I thought he did a nice job," said coach Sean McVay of Gurley. "He got some plays out on the perimeter where it was some tight, inside-zone type plays and then he bounced it out and was able to create."


Sep 18 2017 - Jared Goff
  QB Jared Goff was not as good as he was last week, when he completed 21 of 29 passes for 306 yards and a touchdown. Against Washington, Goff was 15 for 25 for 224 yards and a touchdown with one interception. Coach Sean McVay said Goff "did a nice job for the most part" and credited Goff for making quick and correct decisions. "He created some off-schedule plays," McVay said. "It's unfortunate the way the game ended where their defense made a nice play and we turned the football over."


Sep 17 2017 - Kayvon Webster
  The Los Angeles Rams were without starting cornerback Kayvon Webster for Sunday's home game against the Washington Redskins. Webster suffered a shoulder injury during the Rams' win last week against Indianapolis. He did not practice during the week and was listed as questionable on the team's injury report. Nickell Robey-Coleman, a free-agent signee who was with Buffalo in 2016, started in place of Webster.

  P Johnny Hekker signed a two-year contract extension, the Rams announced. Hekker, who initially signed a six-year extension in 2014, will remain with the team through the 2022 season. The deal gives the 27-year-old $10 million guaranteed, the most ever for a punter, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.


Sep 11 2017 - Johnny Hekker
  P Johnny Hekker and the Rams worked out a two-year contract extension that guarantees him $10 million and will keep him with the club through the 2022 season.


Sep 11 2017 - Ethan Westbrooks
  DT Ethan Westbrooks signed a one-year contract extension that cuts what was a $1.79 million salary this year to $1.25 million while locking him into a $1.75 million salary for next season.


Sep 11 2017 - Dominique Hatfield
  CB Dominique Hatfield left Sunday's game and was checked out for a concussion.


Sep 11 2017 - Cooper Kupp
  WR Cooper Kupp was impressive in the first start of his career against the Colts with four catches for 76 yards and a touchdown.


Sep 11 2017 - Greg Zuerlein
  K Greg Zuerlein connected on field goals of 50, 35 and 44 yards without a miss in Sunday's win over the Colts.


Sep 11 2017 - Aaron Donald

Sep 11 2017 - Lamarcus Joyner
  S Lamarcus Joyner returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter of Sunday's win over the Colts.


Sep 11 2017 - Trumaine Johnson
  CB Trumaine Johnson returned an interception 39 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter of Sunday's win over the Colts.


Sep 11 2017 - Jared Goff
  QB Jared Goff, who went 0-7 last year after being the draft's No. 1 pick in 2016, threw for a touchdown and a career-high 306 yards by completing 21 of 29 passes in Sunday's win over the Colts. New head coach Sean McVay wasn't shocked by Goff's performance that produced a career-high 117.9 passer rating. "I'm not surprised he played that way," McVay said. "I thought he did a great job and put himself in a position to make good decisions and anticipate some throws. He seemed to have a good command of it. I'm very proud of him."


Sep 9 2017 - Aaron Donald
  Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald ended his holdout on Saturday by reporting to the team and passing a physical, the team announced. Donald has not received a new contract, although the sides are working to "reach a solution" on an extension, the team said. The 26-year-old is not expected to play in Sunday's season-opening game against the Indianapolis Colts. Rookie Tanzel Smart will take Donald's spot in the starting 3-4 scheme. Donald has been absent throughout training camp and the preseason. Had he failed to report before Sunday's game, Donald was in line to lose one game check from a contract that pays him a base salary of $1.8 million. The 6-foot-1, 280-pound Donald has been a Pro Bowl selection in each of his three NFL seasons, playing all 48 games. In 2016, he started all 16 games and recorded 47 tackles, eight sacks, five passes defensed and two forced fumbles.


Sep 7 2017 - Aaron Donald
  DT Aaron Donald is expected to miss the Los Angeles Rams' season opener against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday as he continues his prolonged holdout, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Thursday. Donald has been absent throughout training camp and the preseason, accumulating approximately $1.4 million in fines. If the 26-year-old All-Pro fails to report before Sunday's game, he will lose one game check from a contract that pays him a base salary of $1.8 million. The 6-foot-1, 280-pound Donald has been a Pro Bowl selection in each of his three NFL seasons, playing all 48 games. In 2016, he started all 16 games and recorded 47 tackles, eight sacks, five passes defensed and two forced fumbles.


Sep 6 2017 - Mark Barron
  LB Mark Barron was sidelined for most of training camp and all of the preseason by an undisclosed injury, but he's back on the practice field and is on target to start on Sunday. Barron finished second on the Rams with 147 total tackles in 2016.


Sep 6 2017 - Tavon Austin
  WR Tavon Austin, who missed much of training camp and all of the preseason with a hamstring issue, is listed as one of the Rams' three starters at wide receiver. Cooper Kupp got most of the playing time as the starter in Austin's absence, and played better than any wide receiver on the roster through the first three preseason games. And while Austin is at the top of the depth chart along with newcomers Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins, it seems more likely Kupp will get the bulk of the playing time in the Rams' three-wide receiver set.


Sep 6 2017 - Tanzel Smart
  DT Tanzel Smart, a sixth-round pick from Tulane, is listed on the depth chart as the starter for Sunday's season opener against the Colts. Smart said he was unaware he was listed as a starter, but that it was a dream come true if he gets the starting nod. Smart has impressed the Rams throughout camp with his ability, coachability and how he steadily improved every day.


Sep 6 2017 - Aaron Donald
  DT Aaron Donald remained absent from the Rams in a contract holdout. The All-Pro defender has essentially been holding out since offseason workouts as he and the club work out a new deal. Donald still has two years remaining on his original rookie deal, and the Rams potentially control him for four years total when the franchise tag is factored in. Both dynamics further complicate a complicated situation as Donald hopes to maximize his value while the Rams, who are open to paying Donald as the highest-paid defensive player in the league, won't budge on all his demands considering he's still under contract. The Rams still haven't ruled Donald out for Sunday's opener, but it seems dubious he'll be on the field against the Colts.


Sep 2 2017 - Derek Carrier
  TE Derek Carrier was reportedly traded by the Redskins to the Rams for a 2018 seventh-round pick Saturday. Carrier, 27, is reunited with Rams coach Sean McVay, who served as the Redskins' tight end coach from 2011 to 2013 and offensive coordinator from 2014 to 2016. Last season with the Redskins, Carrier played in just eight games and had two catches for 10 yards. He started 11 of the 12 games he played in 2015, setting career highs in catches (17), receiving yards (141) and touchdowns (one).


Aug 29 2017 - Temarrick Hemingway
  TE Temmarick Hemingway was scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday for a broken fibula that will sideline him the remainder of the year.


Aug 29 2017 - Aaron Donald
  DT Aaron Donald, who has not been involved with the Rams on a daily basis since last season, remains a holdout.


Aug 29 2017 - Eric Dickerson
  RB Eric Dickerson will sign a one-day contract with the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday and officially retire with the organization, the team announced. Dickerson, 56, told AM 570 in Los Angeles that he and the Rams are also working on a way for him to have an official role with team. Dickerson excelled with the Rams during their previous stint in Los Angeles, playing with the club for four full seasons after being selected with the second overall pick of the 1983 draft. He set the rookie single-season record for rushing yards with 1,808 in 1983 and the overall single-season rushing record with 2,105 yards in 1984, both of which still stand.


Aug 28 2017 - Tavon Austin
  WR Tavon Austin has missed all of the preseason with hamstring issues, but appears on target to be ready for the season opener Sept. 10 against the Colts. Austin will not play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Packers. "If it was a normal game week, I think he would be able to play," said Rams head coach Sean McVay. "He's made huge progress with Reggie (trainer Reggie Scott) over the last week where he's running, reaching some higher speeds on the treadmill and stuff where it's 100 percent of the weight that he's supporting. So, those have been some good things and you'll start to figure out - we're going to have to start brainstorming some ways with how we're going to utilize Tavon in that game, which will be fun."


Aug 28 2017 - Temarrick Hemingway
  TE Temarrick Hemingway suffered a probable season-ending broken fibula Saturday against the Chargers. Hemingway had made big strides since his rookie year and was on target for a role in the tight-end rotation. Said head coach Sean McVay, "He was one of the guys that I was extremely encouraged with - we were as a staff. We were really counting on him for some big things because I think when you talk about the length, the athleticism, his movement - when he gets the ball in his hands, he's a guy that can create after the catch. He offered a lot of flexibility with what we could do with some of our personnel groupings, so this is a big loss for us. Like I said, it will be interesting to see who kind of steps up to fill that void because there certainly is one left by what we had anticipated for Temarrick for the start of the season. Hopefully we'll get some good news back where it's not going to be a season-ending injury, but we'll find that out in the next few days."


Aug 25 2017 - Mark Barron
  LB Mark Barron participated in practice this week, but his status for Saturday against the Chargers remains in question.


Aug 25 2017 - Kayvon Webster
  CB Kayvon Webster participated in practice this week but his status for Saturday against the Chargers remains in question.


Aug 25 2017 - Robert Quinn
  OLB Robert Quinn has been held out of the first two preseason games for preventative maintenance, and his status for Saturday has yet to be determined.


Aug 25 2017 - Tavon Austin
  WR Tavon Austin has missed most of the last three weeks with a hamstring injury and is not expected to play again Saturday when the Rams host the Chargers.


Aug 24 2017 - Tyrunn Walker
  DT Tyrunn Walker re-signed with the Los Angeles Rams, the team announced. The Rams initially signed Walker in March before releasing him three months later as he addressed sexual assault accusations stemming from an incident on Feb. 28. A grand jury decided not to bring charges against the 27-year-old Walker on Aug. 2, citing a lack of substantial evidence. He was officially brought back to the team on Wednesday.


Aug 21 2017 - Kayvon Webster
  CB Kayvon Webster did not play Saturday due to an injury and his status for Saturday's game against the Chargers is uncertain.


Aug 21 2017 - Mark Barron
  LB Mark Barron did not play Saturday due to an injury and his status for Saturday's game against the Chargers is uncertain.


Aug 21 2017 - Robert Quinn
  OLB Robert Quinn did not play Saturday and his status for Saturday's game against the Chargers is uncertain.


Aug 21 2017 - Tavon Austin
  WR Tavon Austin did not practice all last week with leg issues and his status remains uncertain. "I think it's a day-to-day deal," Rams head coach Sean McVay said. "Ideally, you'd like for him to be able to play this week. If not, then that'll be a conversation that we have moving forward in terms of how you handle him with Green Bay. With this injury, it's something that, I know it's kind of the monotonous answer, but it's a day-to-day deal with his hamstring. He's making progress in terms of some of the things that he's doing with rehab with (director/sports medicine and performance) Reggie (Scott) our head trainer. Right now with him, we'll get a feel for when he comes back tomorrow since the players are off today and we'll just kind of be mindful of seeing where he's at and continue to try to progress his workload. Whether that means he'll be able or not, will remain to be seen."


Aug 21 2017 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley averaged 4.8 yards on eight carries Saturday against the Raiders, and while the numbers weren't huge, the impact was significant. By getting Gurley established, it helped second-year quarterback Jared Goff makes plays off play-action. When the Rams running game is effective, it helps set up everything else. "Yeah, a lot of it," said Rams head coach Sean McVay. "Anytime that we're able to stay balanced. I think it was (running back) Todd (Gurley), I think it was the linemen doing a good job. The tight ends competed well in-line. We had receivers on the perimeter that were contributing. Jared did a nice job of making sure that the runs we were running were versus the looks that we had discussed and wanted to be able to run against. I think it was all 11 (players) and then when you're able to have your starting running back almost average five yards a carry, that means you're out of those bad third downs, it's why you're able to go six-for-eight in the first half on third down. "So, it all ties together, but it all goes back to being efficient and being efficient where you have your run-pass balance options up and your second downs and third downs, if available. It allows you to present a lot more to the defense and it regulates some of the looks that you're able to see. I thought it was a great job by the offense, staying in those positive situations to be able to do that."
