Sacktual healing

Who’s going to get into the backfield in 2018? Heading into the 2018 offseason, the Rams’ secondary looked to be one of the team’s potential areas of weakness. Trumaine Johnson leaving for free agency was a foregone conclusion, and Kayvon Webster’s injury (and play) left his roster spot in limbo. FS LaMarcus Joyner and standout nickel corner Nickell Robey-Coleman were also exposed. Given our historic reluctance to pay DBs, the outlook appeared bleak. We all know what happened next. The Rams added 7 Pro Bowls and 53 career INTs to their roster in the form of Marcus Peters and Aqib...

Suh lands at No. 36 on PFF’s Top 50

The No. 2 overall pick from the 2010 NFL Draft is set to stop, drop, shut ‘em down, and open up shop for the team that picked No. 1 overall that year. The St. Louis Rams selected Sam Bradford No. 1 overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. But Ndamukong Suh - drafted second by the Detroit Lions - was a selection the Rams (had to have) seriously considered. Fast forward nine seasons, and here we are — with Suh set to line up along the Rams’ defensive front. Unlike Bradford, Suh hasn’t sustained a slew of season-ending injuries, and is still viewed as one of the most dominant players at his...

Reggie Bush lawsuit began Tuesday for MCL tear at Edward Jones Dome

This stems from his 2015 knee injury with the 49ers. Former (briefly) San Francisco 49ers running back Reggie Bush is officially in court for a civil suit against the Los Angeles Rams and the city of St. Louis. The negligence lawsuit stems from an injury Bush suffered back in 2015 while playing for the 49ers. Bush and the 49ers were in St. Louis to face the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. At the end of a play, Bush ran out of bounds, and when he got to a concrete ring near the stands that circled the field, he slipped and fell. Initial fears were that Bush tore his ACL, but...
