Rams TE Tyler Higbee (lung) practiced all week and is set to return for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. That knocks TE Gerald Everett out of the spot-start discussion. Higbee actually out-targeted Everett 8 to 5 over the season’s first 2 games.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (chest) has been ruled out for Sunday night's game against the Browns. He's played 43% of the offensive snaps so far vs. 55% for TE Gerald Everett. So Higbee's absence could turn Everett into something close to an every-down TE. He's on the deep-league spot-start radar for Week 3.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee suffered a lung injury in Sunday's win over the Saints that had him coughing up blood, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Higbee was briefly hospitalized but isn't expected to miss much time, per Rapoport. We'll keep an eye on him this week. Higbee's absence would make TE Gerald Everett a low-end spot-start option.

Rams insider Joe Curley expects TE Tyler Higbee to be 2nd in line for targets this season, behind only the newly acquired Sammy Watkins. Higbee caught just 11 balls as a rookie last year but was an intriguing prospect coming out of Western Kentucky. The converted WR goes 6'6, 249 pounds and averaged 15.5 yards per catch in 4 college seasons. Higbee has been buzzing early in training camp and has some upside in new Rams HC Sean McVay's TE-friendly offense. Curley, by the way, has rookie WR Cooper Kupp 3rd on the target totem pole and WR Robert Woods 4th.

There's been a consistent buzz on Rams TE Tyler Higbee over the past couple of weeks. "Expect big things from Tyler," GM Les Snead said from the Combine. HC Sean McVay is excited to work with the 2nd-year TE. "Nice catch radius," McVay said. "He can stretch the seam; he's got a good feel and savvy in the pass game." McVay arrives from Washington, where Redskins TEs ranked 5th in targets (289), 5th in receiving yards (2,397) and tied for 3rd in TDs (20) over the past 2 seasons. Higbee is no Jordan Reed, but he is a 6'6, 249-pounder with plus athleticism. And there's lots of target upside with TE Lance Kendricks gone and a WR corps led by Robert Woods and Tavon Austin.
