Rams hold out 2 starters from practice on Wednesday, including Darrell Henderson

Rams hold out 2 starters from practice on Wednesday, including Darrell Henderson

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports Leonard Floyd was also held out due to an ankle injury The Los Angeles Rams ran the ball 20 times against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their 2020 meeting in Florida, but two of those went to Robert Woods, one to Jared Goff, and even Tyler Higbee had a rushing attempt. The acquisition of Matthew Stafford means that the Rams won’t have to lean as heavily on a strong rushing attack, but also Tampa Bay’s top-ranked run defense signals that an inordinate number of passes will be thrown this Sunday at SoFi Stadium. So it could be that...

How should Rams attack Bucs defense?

How should Rams attack Bucs defense?

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports LA is working through injuries at the running back position, and the Bucs are one of the best teams at stopping the run The defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers are traveling cross-country to compete in a highly anticipated matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. This will be a clash of the current #1 and #2 teams in the NFL, according to recent power rankings. The Rams did not necessarily exchange two first round draft selections and Jared Goff for Matthew Stafford in order to win in the regular season - the real measuring...

7 important things that the Bucs said about the Rams on Wednesday

Photo by John McCoy/ What Bruce Arians and Rob Gronkowski had to say about Matthew Stafford, Jalen Ramsey and Aaron Donald The LA Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had two fascinating showdowns in the last two years and Sunday’s round three figures to be the most important NFL game of November, to say the least. Getting the opportunity to watch Matthew Stafford and Tom Brady, with receivers like Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Mike Evans, and Chris Godwin, being defended against the likes of Jalen Ramsey, Darious Williams, and Tampa Bay’s underrated secondary of young...

Bucs could be without Antonio Brown against Rams

Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/ Tampa Bay placed the star receiver on the COVID-19 reserve list The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will want all the help they can get against the LA Rams defense this Sunday at SoFi Stadium, but on Wednesday it became apparent that star wideout Antonio Brown is in danger of missing the game. The veteran receiver was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday morning, putting him in danger of being inactive for the Week 3 contest that happens in four days. Brown must sit out a minimum of three days. He will need two negative tests, 24 hours...

Leonard Floyd already has more missed tackles this season than he had in all of 2020

Leonard Floyd already has more missed tackles this season than he had in all of 2020

Photo by Michael Hickey/ 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. But what would LA do with Leonard Floyd, their $64 million linebacker, if he had a tackling issue? Floyd...

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 Colts in Week 2. Now it appears that Kiser’s time with the team and his Rams teammates is...

Rams underrated stars: 3 players who’ve stood out already

Photo by Michael Allio/Icon Sportswire via Which Rams have stood out that aren't getting the recognition they deserve? The Los Angeles Rams have gotten off to a hot 2-0 start after beating the Chicago Bears at SoFi stadium and the Indianapolis Colts on the road. We know who has been under the spotlight performing well — Matthew Stafford, Cooper Kupp, Aaron Donald, and Jalen Ramsey. But who are some underrated performers who have performed well but aren’t necessarily getting the credit they deserve? The team is playing well on all three phases, hence why they were...

Random Ramsdom: Los Angeles Rams rank 2nd on ESPN Power Rankings

Photo by Michael Hickey/ Your source for Rams and NFL News from around the web. ESPN Power Rankings have the undefeated Los Angeles Rams at number two after the week two slate. The Rams move up two spots on this particular list after defeating the Indianapolis Colts on the road 27-24. Lindsey Thiry of ESPN remarks on Cooper Kupps two game start of over 200 yards combined receiving yards and three touchdowns. Kupp is no stranger to fantasy rosters, but his production through two games has exceeded expectation. With quarterback Matthew Stafford, Kupp has produced...

Rams activate Chris Garrett from COVID-19 list, will he play vs Bucs?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Sean McVay has been willing to play rookies who he thinks are ready to play 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. Garrett was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list on September 2nd and has yet to be active for a game through the...

Will Darrell Henderson miss any games?

Christine Tannous/IndyStar via Imagn Content Services, LLC 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. Almost exactly one year later, it is Henderson who has the rib cartilage injury, and Sony Michel as the...

Stafford’s searched for homes in Indianapolis prior to trade from Lions to Rams

Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports The Colts were the preferred destination up until LA swooped in with a better offer In the LA Rams’ 27-24 Week 2 win over the Indianapolis Colts, both Matthew Stafford and Carson Wentz lived up to their reputations; Stafford again showed off his arm talent, pocket confidence, and decision-making, while Wentz hurt both of his ankles and left the game with injury. Just as we could have predicted when the two quarterbacks were involved in trades earlier this year, but it was the Colts — not the Rams — who may have had the greatest odds of...

Checking in on the NFL’s rookie offensive linemen through two weeks

Caitie McMekin/News Sentinel via Imagn Content Services, LLC The LA Rams didn’t pick any of these players, but many fans were hopeful they would The Los Angeles Rams have only drafted one offensive lineman over the last two years, and that was seventh round pick Tremayne Anchrum, the 250th pick of the 2020 draft. This flies in the face of what Rams fans have been expecting going into each of the last two drafts because many have expressed concerns over everything from Andrew Whitworth’s age to uncertainty at the center position and questions over the quality of the...

Has Brian Allen brought stability to the Rams center position?

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports Brian Allen and the offensive line are playing well and quieting skeptics. One of the biggest concerns amongst Los Angeles Rams fans going into the season was how the offensive line would perform with Brian Allen taking over at center, but after the first two games, Allen and the rest of the offensive line have at least temporarily quelled the concerns of those outside of the Rams facility. Sunday’s 27-24 road victory against the Indianapolis Colts was made possible in part by solid performances across the board from the big guys up...

Everything you need to know about the LA Rams next opponent: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The reigning champs look even better than they did a year ago My job of doing these primers could not possibly go any easier than covering the 2021 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not only did the LA Rams face the Bucs last season (and won), not only did the Bucs win the Super Bowl, therefore making them well-known to most NFL fans by now, but on top of all of that, they didn’t change. Like, at all. The Bucs have returned all of their starters, key reserves, and coaches from the 2020 championship season and so far that plan seems to be going off...

Is Sony Michel poised for a big role against the Bucs?

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Michel expected to step up following Darrell Henderson injury Sean McVay had to have taken a deep sigh of relief when he found out running back Darrell Henderson wouldn’t be joining Cam Akers on injured reserve. This is obviously excellent news for the Los Angeles Rams, as they don’t have to worry about replacing yet another rusher. McVay says the team plans to rest Henderson during the week and hopes to check on him on Friday to plan what his status will be against Tampa Bay. While hoping for a speedy recovery, this news figures...
