Robert Quinn Injury Updates

Cowboys DE Robert Quinn suffered a rib injury at the end of the 1st half of Sunday night's game against the Eagles and has been ruled out. Fortunately for him, Dallas gets a Week 8 bye. We'll see about the official diagnosis and return timeline here.

Rams OLB Robert Quinn sat out team drills at minicamp this week with a cast on his right hand following minor surgery, according to multiple reports. HC Sean McVay said Quinn will be ready for training camp, and this injury could certainly prove to be no big deal. But he has lost time to knee, hip, back and shoulder injuries over the past 2 years. Quinn needs to get and stay healthy and then prove he remains 1 of the league's top pass rushers. If he does so this summer, he'll hold plenty of upside in sack-friendly IDP leagues -- despite a move from DE to OLB. If he doesn't, a potentially solid Rams D might suffer.

Rams DE Robert Quinn is out for more than just tonight's game against the Seahawks. Los Angeles has placed him on IR with the concussion that cost him the previous 2 games. Quinn has dealt with multiple injuries this year, though, dating back to offseason back surgery. As IDP owners, let's hope his 2017 offseason -- and ensuing regular season -- proves healthier.

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.

Rams DEs Robert Quinn (shoulder) and William Hayes (ankle) are questionable once again for Sunday's game against the Giants. Both put in full practices Friday, however, and seem likely to play. Hayes returned from his injury last week. Quinn was said to be on track to play but was inactive at Detroit. Having both would help an upside team D in fantasy football, while a healthy Quinn delivers his own high ceiling for IDP owners.

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.

Rams DEs Robert Quinn (shoulder) and William Hayes (ankle) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills after they each missed all 3 practices this week. That sure doesn't make them look likely to play against Buffalo. And if they do, there's always the risk of re-injury and/or limited snaps. Try to avoid both in your IDP league if you can. Losing both players would hurt the L.A. team D, though it remains a solid unit for fantasy purposes. Going without Quinn -- and, to a lesser extent, Hayes -- would lower both the ceiling and floor.

The Rams practiced Wednesday without either of their starting DEs. Robert Quinn sat out with a shoulder injury, while William Hayes continued to deal with an ankle injury. Hayes missed last week's game. We'll keep an eye on both players this week. Obviously, missing both would ding the L.A. team D's upside at least a bit against Buffalo this Sunday.

Rams HC Jeff Fisher announced Wednesday that DE Robert Quinn and S T.J. McDonald will have season-ending surgeries, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Quinn needs an operation on his back, which has been a problem for much of the year. McDonald suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He had reportedly also been playing through injury for most of the year. We'll check on both potential IDP studs heading into 2016. Neither leaves behind an impact replacement for your fantasy football lineup.

Rams DE Robert Quinn (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Quinn hasn't been right for quite a while because of various injuries, so his absence shouldn't alter anyone's fantasy football plans for the week.

The Rams have downgraded DE Robert Quinn to out for Sunday's game against Baltimore. They now list him with hip and back injuries, which marks a change from the knee issue that had put him on the injury report the past few weeks. Quinn missed the Week 9 game and then played only 14 snaps last Sunday. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "Back issues, in fact, have hampered Quinn for much of this season." That's good to know now that we're more than halfway through. DE Eugene Sims is expected to start in Quinn's place.

The Rams have deemed S T.J. McDonald and DE Robert Quinn questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. McDonald returned for a limited practice Friday from a foot injury he suffered in practice the week before. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, McDonald lobbied coaches to let him play in Week 9. It didn't work, but there might be reason for optimism this week. Quinn also put in limited practices the past 2 days after missing Week 9 with a knee injury. We'll see if either is able to return Sunday. DE Chris Long will likely miss his 4th straight game. He's doubtful with a knee injury, leaving DE William Hayes to start again.

The Rams have ruled out DE Chris Long once again with the knee injury he suffered back in Week 5. This will mark his 3rd straight game out. That'll clear the way for William Hayes to start again at left DE, assuming he's ready to go. Hayes is questionable again with a thigh injury that he played through last week. He missed Wednesday and Thursday workouts but returned for a limited Friday practice. We'll check his Sunday status. DE Robert Quinn is also questionable with the same knee injury that made him questionable last week. He played through it last week but put in a full practice Friday after sitting out the 1st 2 days. Quinn missed all 3 days this week. That makes him look more iffy for Sunday. Make sure you have a replacement available. S T.J. McDonald is questionable as well after missing practice all 3 days. You should not have him in your IDP plans. Quinn's situation hurts the upside for the team D a bit as well.

11:02am EST 11/3/13
As expected, Rams DE Robert Quinn is good to go today against the Titans.  He missed practice with an illness all week and turned up questionable on the injury report, but keep using fantasy's top D-lineman as you normally would.

Rams DE Robert Quinn has missed the 1st 2 days of practice this week because of a concussion. The injury comes as a bit of a surprise, because Quinn was on the field for the Rams' final series against Arizona. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that not even the player knows when he suffered the concussion. Nevertheless, he'll have to pass the mandated tests before playing against the Niners on Sunday. IDP owners need to make sure they have a backup plan.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that even Rams rookie DE Robert Quinn was surprised by his Week 1 deactivation. The team apparently made him a healthy scratch because of concern that he wouldn't keep edge containment when rushing Michael Vick. If true, that reasoning looks funny after the Philly QB racked up 100 rushing yards (minus 2 on game-ending kneel-downs). Quinn will be active in Week 2 after backup DE C.J. Ah You suffered a wrist injury in the opener. We'll see how often the 1st-rounder can get on the field against the Giants. Quinn showed distinct pass-rush upside in preseason and saw regular 1st-team action.

12:26pm EDT 9/11/11

The Rams surprisingly deactivated 1st-round pick DE Robert Quinn for today's matchup with the Eagles. There's no known injury at play, and every Rams beat writer seems to be surprised by the move. Quinn was regularly involved in the 1st-team D in the preseason. We would have thought his pass-rush skills and speed would help against QB Michael Vick. Look for starting DE James Hall to stay on the field more and add IDP value.
