The L.A. Rams spent a 5th-round pick on Virginia LB Micah Kiser on Saturday, before picking up 2 more LBs. Seventh-round pick Travin Howard averaged 115 total tackles over 3 seasons at TCU, including 20.5 tackles for loss. He also defensed 7 passes in his final campaign. Undrafted free agent Tegray Scales tallied 214 total tackles, including 36.5 for loss and 13 sacks over his final 2 seasons at Indiana. The 230-pounder also contributed 8 career INTs. Kiser, though, is the best bet to take over the spot vacated when the Rams traded ILB Alec Ogletree to the Giants. Kizer racked up 393 tackles over 3 full starting seasons at Virginia. That included 33.5 tackles for loss and 19 sacks. Kizer added 12 passes defensed at 8 forced fumbles over that span. He then tested fairly well, including a 62nd-percentile speed score at 6'0, 238 pounds. Keep Kiser in mind as you prepare for the rookie draft in your IDP dynasty league.

Rams LB Micah Kiser (knee) is active for today's game against the Seahawks. That should mean he's back in the starting lineup in place of Troy Reeder. It'll be Kiser's 1st action since Week 11.

Rams ILB Micah Kiser (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Seahawks. He hasn't played since spraining the knee in Week 11 and would thus present risk as an IDP option even if active. Kiser did return to 3 limited practices this week, though. We'd bet on him playing. We'll update his status when inactives come out Saturday. If Kiser still can't get back into the lineup, then Troy Reeder would continue to start in his place.

The Rams have activated LB Micah Kiser off IR. Kiser missed the past 5 games with a knee injury. Activating him now, though — especially given injury and COVID impacts at other positions — makes us believe they’ll throw him back into the lineup. Expect Kiser to take his job back from Troy Reeder unless we hear otherwise

The Rams placed LB Micah Kiser on IR this week with a knee injury. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games, starting with Sunday's 49ers matchup. When Kiser missed Week 5, Troy Reeder took the playing time lead among LBs and racked up 11 tackles and 3 sacks against Washington. He'll be an upside option for IDP lineups over the next 3 games.

Rams LB Micah Kiser (groin) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the 49ers. Kiser put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday and then returned to a full practice Friday. That points to him having a good shot to play this week. We'll confirm Kiser's status Sunday. Troy Reeder would be the fill-in if Kiser can't play.
