Oct 17 2018 - Travin Howard

  WR Cooper Kupp suffered a knee sprain on Sunday against the Denver Broncos and is likely out this week against the San Francisco 49ers.


Oct 17 2018 - Greg Zuerlein
  K Greg Zuerlein, who has missed the last five games with a hamstring injury, returned to practice and is expected to play on Sunday.


Oct 17 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, the NFL announced on Wednesday. Gurley rushed for a career-high 208 yards and scored twice in the Rams' 23-20 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. The 24-year-old Gurley has paid dividends after signing a four-year, $60 million contract extension prior to the season by leading the league in rushing yards (623) and touchdowns (11: nine rushing, two receiving).


Oct 16 2018 - Nick Williams
  WR Nick Williams was signed by the Rams Tuesday (Oct. 16). His contract had been terminated by the Titans Oct. 9.


Oct 15 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley isn't just putting the fans in awe with his dominating performances. Count teammate Robert Woods among the many heaping praise on Gurley, who set a career high with 208 rushing yards in the Rams' 23-20 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. "I'm actually surprised that we didn't do that last year or sooner," Woods said. "He's been running wild ever since I got to this team. ... And he's a beast. You know he's doing well when defenders are saying, 'Man, he's getting five yards a touch, five yards a touch.' He's pretty much unstoppable right now."


Oct 14 2018 - Robert Woods
  WR Robert Woods hauled in seven catches for 109 yards Sunday.


Oct 14 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley ran for a career-high 208 yards and two touchdowns -- the second back in as many games to surpass 200 yards against Denver's beleaguered defense -- and the Los Angeles Rams remained undefeated by downing the Broncos 23-20 on an icy Sunday in Denver. Gurley's touchdown runs came earlier in the game but he also chewed up yardage down the stretch, when the Broncos were desperately trying to slow him down to get the ball back for their offense. Gurley's gains in the late going helped to set up Cairo Santos' third field goal, a 23-yarder with 3:15 left to play. It came at the end of a 13-play drive that consumed 5:39 and showcased the Rams' ability to run the ball productively even when Denver's defense had to know what was coming. "Obviously, you want to go with what is working and that's kind of what we did today so credit to those guys up front," said Gurley, who averaged 7.4 yards on 28 carries. "They did a great job and we finished the game. We were feeling it in the running game."


Oct 13 2018 - Brandin Cooks
  WR Brandin Cooks will be back in the lineup for Sunday's game at the Denver Broncos. He was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol, the team announced Saturday morning. Cooks, who was acquired in an offseason trade with the New England Patriots, was injured on a helmet-to-helmet hit by Seahawks safety Tedric Thompson. The former first-round draft pick did not have a catch last week but still has 26 receptions for a team-best 452 yards. Cooks is averaging 17.4 yards per catch.


Oct 13 2018 - Cooper Kupp
  WR Cooper Kupp will be back in the lineup for Sunday's game at the Denver Broncos. He was cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol, the team announced Saturday morning. Kupp was injured on a crossing play when he split two defenders and his head hit the turf. He had six catches for 90 yards before he was hurt, boosting his team-leading total to 30 receptions. Kupp also had a team-best five touchdown catches.


Oct 11 2018 - Marcus Peters
  CB Marcus Peters suffered a calf injury in Week 3 and was a victim of big plays by the opposition in the next two games. Nonetheless, Peters said he is not injured when asked whether he is 100 percent healthy. "What makes you ask that?" Peters replied to reporters, via the Rams' official website. "No, I feel hella good. Coach wouldn't have let me go out there and play if I didn't feel good. What do you want me to say? I feel 100 percent? Yeah, I do. I feel 100 percent."


Oct 10 2018 - Brandin Cooks

Kurt Warner holds the franchise record with 300-plus passing yards in six consecutive games -- also tied for the all-time NFL record.


Oct 10 2018 - Todd Gurley
  RB Todd Gurley has 5,244 career yards from scrimmage and needs 769 more yards to pass Jack Snow (6,012) for 10th place on the franchise's all-time yards from scrimmage list. Gurley needs six points to move into a three-way tie for 17th place on the Rams all-time scoring leaders list. Following an 18-point performance last Sunday, Gurley is currently tied with Dan Towler for 19th place with 264 career points scored.

It's the fourth time Easley has suffered a season-ending knee injury going back to his college career and the second straight year his season will end prematurely due to a knee injury. "This poor guy. I couldn't be more impressed with just the toughness, how resilient he's been fighting himself, fighting through so many different things with this knee," said Rams head coach Sean McVay. "It's upsetting because of how many things he's had to go through and what a great job he's done persevering to even get to the point where he's playing this year. It's tough and you feel for him. You love him, you appreciate everything that he's done for us and the way that he's fought to get back to even this position and contribute the way that he has."

"We're looking into it and this poor guy has been through a whole lot," Rams coach Sean McVay said, via the team's website. "In terms of exactly what that means, you just look at how much his knee has been through, the amount of surgeries, the way that he has persevered through it. It might be something that if he has to get that thing cleaned up again, it will be a tough situation. We're still evaluating, but it's looking like it could be something that could keep him out for a while."


Sep 29 2018 - Robert Woods
  WR Robert Woods had his house burglarized while the Rams were piling up 556 yards of offense in Thursday's 38-31 victory over the Vikings. According to the Los Angeles Police Department, they responded to a call in the 23100 block of Mariano Street in Woodland Hills at 7:20 p.m. local time Thursday.

Sep 26 2018 - Sam Shields
  CB Sam Shields is looking to make the most of his opportunity on Thursday when the Los Angeles Rams host the Minnesota Vikings. The Rams (3-0) will be without Aqib Talib (high ankle sprain) and perhaps even fellow starting cornerback Marcus Peters (calf). Their potential absences would increase the workload for Shields, who could be making his first start since the 2016 season opener with the Green Bay Packers. Concussions kept Shields out for the remainder of that year and all of the 2017 season. "A lot of people still like want to know, 'Is he all right?' Things like that," the 30-year-old Shields said, via the Los Angeles Times. "For me, it's just kind of show people I still got it. I can still do it."

Talib was injured in the third quarter of Sunday's victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. McVay was anticipating Talib would have surgery before the veteran cornerback received a second opinion Tuesday. Talib was acquired in a trade with Denver in the offseason. He made the Pro Bowl in all four seasons with Denver and leads active cornerbacks in interceptions (34) since he entered the league in 2008. The 32-year-old Talib also was a Pro Bowl selection with the New England Patriots in 2013.


Sep 24 2018 - Marcus Peters
  CB Marcus Peters is dealing with a calf injury, and McVay seemed optimistic even though earlier reports said he would be sidelined two to four weeks. "He'll be day-to-day and hopefully we've got a chance to get him going this week," McVay said Monday. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow, but that was really encouraging news."


Sep 24 2018 - Aqib Talib
  CB Aqib Talib is expected to have surgery on an injured ankle. "It wasn't good news on him," McVay said. "He is going to get a second opinion tomorrow, but more than likely, he's going to have something that will probably require surgery. But, hopefully, we'll get him back at some point in time. He'll handle it the right way and do everything he can to get back sooner than later."

You could tell there were two sides in here. Ultimately, I think we had a little bit more, being at home, but you could definitely feel it. I think they are a great team, we're a great team, and hopefully that can continue for a long time."


Sep 24 2018 - Marcus Peters
  CB Marcus Peters is expected to be sidelined two to four weeks with a strained calf, according to a published report Monday. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Peters underwent an MRI to confirm the severity of the injury. Peters sustained the injury midway through the second quarter of Sunday's 35-23 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. He was helped to the sidelines while not placing weight on his right leg. Peters leads the league with 20 interceptions since entering the NFL.
