St. Louis Rams
New York Jets
Two St. Louis Rams rookies, cornerback Janoris Jenkins and wide receiver Chris Givens, are active against the New York Jets after getting benched last week.
Fullback Brit Miller, also the team's special teams captain, and wide receiver Steve Smith were inactive. Wide receiver Austin Pettis, who missed two days of practice and was limited Friday with a toe injury, was active on Sunday.
Jenkins and Givens were suspended last week for violating team rules. Coach Jeff Fisher said during the week that both players would be back but did not say whether either would start.
Jets running backs Joe McKnight (ankle) and Bilal Powell (concussion) were active after being listed as questionable. Linebacker Bart Scott (toe) and defensive tackle Sione Pouha (low back/ankle) also dressed after being questionable and limited in practice all week.
BEST OF MAXIM
The St. Louis Rams will activate center Scott Wells, out since the opener with a broken bone in his left foot, with hopes of having him in the lineup this week at Arizona.
Wells, among the team's top offseason free agent pickups, is the Rams' ''marquee'' injured reserve player eligible to return in Week 9. He missed the first two preseason games rehabbing...
Even though there’s been some speculation that the St. Louis Rams will use their franchise tag on wide receiver Danny Amendola next season, there’s also a chance they decide to move on from him because of how injury prone he’s been lately.
“I think it could be a tough call with him,” one team insider said of Amendola’s future in St. Louis. “He’s been playing like...
St. Louis Rams backup linebacker Mario Haggan injured his right elbow early in the first quarter against the New York Jets and the team said his return was questionable.
A Jets player landed on Haggan at the end of a 1-yard carry by backup quarterback Tim Tebow out of the wildcat formation on the third play of the game. After walking off the field, Haggan flung his helmet to the...
The St. Louis Rams are struggling through a five-game winless stretch.
Coach Jeff Fisher reminded one of the NFL's youngest rosters on Monday that with more consistency, and perhaps a turnover or two, the tide will turn.
Also, how easily chances at a victory can slip away.
Fisher was critical of some officiating calls in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the New York Jets, notably...
While just about every team in the league got a makeover when Nike unveiled their new NFL uniforms this year, some teams still want to update their look.
For the Rams, that means going retro.
Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff said on 101 ESPN on Friday that the team would like to bring back its old white and blue uniforms from the heyday of the Los Angeles Rams. Taking on...
It was easy to look at the good work the Rams offense did against the 49ers, and call it a turning point. Earlier in the week, we outlined six signs of offensive success that the Rams were capable of repeating. Sam Bradford and the offense utterly failed at four of those six factors, and it cost us a win against a very beatable opponent.
Aside from limiting pre-snap penalties...
The Rams were projected to win but they ended up losing. Once again there was a lot of penalties and a lack of third down efficiency during the game. The Jets have the Rams Offense and the Jets Defense to thank for the win. Below is the hero and zero of the game.Hero: Bilal Powell He had two touchdowns during the game. Both of them were in the second quarter. Powell also...
As the St Louis Rams' record continues to slide following a heartening 3-2 start to the season, Sam Bradford's progression on the "elite quarterback growth curve" is receiving increasing scrutiny. Whether he has a strong game (275-2-0 versus the 49ers) or a weak one (170-2-1 vs the Jets), unless the Rams win the criticism will always be there. It's just a matter...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' inter-conference contest with the St. Louis Rams. Nick's take: When Jets coach Rex Ryan and Rams offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer shared the field during Schotty's time with the Jets, Rex's defense ran the show. I think that holds true when the...
ST. LOUIS -- The NFL's most dysfunctional team played like the team its coach insists it can be instead of the one that stumbled to a 3-6 record prior to Sunday. Dominating most of the last three quarters, the New York Jets snapped a three-game losing streak with a methodical 27-13 win over the mistake-prone St. Louis Rams in the Edward Jones Dome. Quarterback Mark Sanchez...
