Rams DEs Robert Quinn and William Hayes are active for today's game against the Giants in London. Hayes returned last week from his ankle injury, but this will be the 1st game back for Quinn after 2 weeks down with a shoulder injury. He'll still carry attractive upside against a Giants offense with issues at OT. The Rams will miss DT Michael Brockers again, however, after he returned for Week 6.
Well, forget about that positive report on Rams DE Robert Quinn. He's inactive for today's game against the Lions with the shoulder injury that kept him out in Week 5. DE William Hayes (ankle) is active, however, as is DT Michael Brockers. The Rams still look like a risky team-D play without their top pass rusher, though.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Rams DE Robert Quinn (shoulder) is expected to play at Detroit today. He missed last week's game but practiced this week and should be in IDP lineups. DE William Hayes (ankle) is expected to miss another game, however, while DT Michael Brockers (hip) will be a game-time decision. All 3 entered the day questionable. Quinn's return certainly helps the team D, though the overall injury picture -- including top CB Trumaine Johnson being out with an ankle injury -- makes the Rams a boom/bust fantasy option.
The Rams got DEs Robert Quinn (shoulder) and William Hayes (ankle) and DT Michael Brockers (hip) back for a limited practice Friday. That's progress after all 3 missed practice all last week and then Wednesday and Thursday of this week. All 3 are questionable for Sunday's game at Detroit. The Rams D will carry much more upside if this trio returns to action.
The Rams will be without 3 of their 4 starting D-linemen for today's game against the Bills. DT Michael Brockers (hip), DE Robert Quinn (shoulder) and William Hayes (ankle) are all inactive for Week 5. That leaves DT Aaron Donald as the only healthy starter. There remains upside against the Bills in L.A., but the Rams look much riskier as a team D than they would have otherwise.
Rams NT Michael Brockers left late in the 3rd quarter Sunday against the Cardinals after appearing to hurt his right knee. He limped gingerly off the field with the help of 2 trainers. Brockers isn't much of an IDP option beyond deeper, DT-required leagues, but he's key to the Rams' strong D-line.
