The Giants have ruled out MLB Alec Ogletree for Sunday's game in Indianapolis because of a concussion. Ogletree's absence should mean more playing time for LB B.J. Goodson. The Giants' other ILB starter played 87% of the snaps the last time Ogletree missed a game and didn't reach 57% in any other contest until last week (when he hit 65%).

The Giants have ruled ILB Alec Ogletree out for the 2nd straight week with his concussion. That should mean more playing time again for LB B.J. Goodson. He cracked 80% playing time last week for just the 2nd time all season but collected a mere 6 tackles (4 solo). Goodson certainly presents upside beyond that with Ogletree out but isn't a lock for big IDP production.

The Giants have ruled ILB Alec Ogletree out for Sunday's game against Washington with a hamstring injury. That will leave ILB B.J. Goodson wearing the green dot and likely playing at least a near-full snap share. We've added Goodson to the Week 8 LB rankings, and he'll carry tackle upside beyond his ranking in what could/should be a heavy dose of Adrian Peterson.

ESPN and NFL Network report that the Rams have reached a deal to trade LB Alec Ogletree to the Giants for a pair of draft picks. Ogletree will obviously start for his new team and could settle into either the middle or the weak side. The Rams, meanwhile, will now have an ILB slot to fill next to Mark Barron. They'll also look to replace OLB Robert Quinn this offseason after trading him to the Dolphins last month. There's plenty of IDP production potential available to Ogletree with the Giants, behind a solid D-line and amid what has been a weak LB corps.

Rams ILB Alec Ogletree is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles with the hyperextended elbow he suffered last week. Ogletree returned to practice Friday for just a limited workout, but the Orange County Register reports that HC Sean McVay said afterward he expects Ogletree to play. Make sure an insurance option is available if you plan to use Ogletree in your IDP lineups, however.

Rams LB Alec Ogletree left Sunday's win over the Cardinals with an elbow injury and did not return. We'll look for further word on the injury today.

Update: The early diagnosis was a hyper-extended left elbow. Ogletree said after the game that he expects to play against the Eagles in Week 14, according to ESPN's Alden Gonzalez.
