Rams ILB Kenny Young got ejected in the 2nd half of Sunday's win over the Colts for making contact with an official. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Young is not expected to see a league suspension for the incident, so he should be ready for Week 3 IDP lineups. Young played every snap in Week 1. His early departure Sunday allowed Troy Reeder to match his playing time in Week 2. Expect that to shift back the other direction for Week 3, leaving Young the only Rams off-ball LB worth using in fantasy football.
The Broncos on Monday acquired LB Kenny Young from the Rams. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Denver also sent a 6th-round pick in 2024 in exchange for Young and a 7th-rounder in 2024. The Broncos have endured numerous injuries at ILB, including losing both season-opening starters -- Josey Jewell and Alexander Johnson -- for the year. Young will obviously enter the mix at that spot, but we'll have to see whether he takes the playing-time lead from Justin Strnad. Denver gave up very little to acquire Young, who had clearly fallen out of favor with a Rams team that's also weak at ILB. Back in L.A., Troy Reeder figures to remain the playing-time leader at the position. No other non-edge LB has played more than 45 total snaps for the Rams so far this season.
