It hasn’t been the best day for the Los Angeles Rams or backup quarterback Bryce Perkins, as they trail the Kansas City Chiefs 20-10 in the fourth quarter on Sunday.
However, Perkins did hit a personal milestone in the matchup, throwing his first career touchdown pass, and hitting Van Jefferson in the end zone to cut into the Kansas City lead.
Matthew Stafford will not play against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon due to a concussion protocol that you knew about … and now, per coach Sean McVay, and a “neck issue” that will sideline the Rams QB.
Henderson Jr., who was a third-round draft pick by LA in 2019, was seen as the team’s rest-of-season starter after the trade uncertainty that surrounded running back Cam Akers.
Hollins, who has played in all 10 games this season, was a fifth-round pick by the Rams in 2019. He’s posted 26 total tackles, 15 solo, one sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery this season.
Following a sack on third and long in their Sunday matchup against the New Orleans Saints, Matthew Stafford has suffered an injury that has forced him to go into the medical tent.
The Los Angeles Rams will be without their top offensive weapon for at least four weeks, after designating star wide receiver Cooper Kupp to injured reserve, Rams Sean McVay announced.
Kupp will miss at least four weeks and will undergo tightrope surgery to repair the injury. Recovery from tightrope surgery is typically five to six weeks, per reports.
The loss of Kupp could not come at a worse time for the Rams, who sit in last place in the NFC West and are in danger of missing the playoffs entirely with a 3-6 record.
Kupp is the Rams overwhelming leader in most receiving stats, and currently sits second in the NFL in receptions (75), fifth in targets (98), fifth in yards (812) and fifth in touchdowns (6).
Stafford has been ruled out with a concussion he suffered during the teams loss last week to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while Murray will miss the game with a hamstring injury.
The sputtering Los Angeles Rams will have some reinforcement incoming this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, with rookie running back Kyren Williams and offensive lineman Coleman Shelton set to be activated off of injured reserve, head coach Sean McVay announced.
NOV 8 BURGESS CUT The Rams are experiencing what coach Sean McVay is forced to consider is a “Super Bowl hangover,” and the not-so-feel-good hits keep coming as the team has waived former third-round pick Terrell Burgess.
The Rams announced their list of inactive on Sunday ahead of their matchup vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, with running back Cam Akers, who has been out in recent weeks, poised to return.
The Panthers, who have been in firesale mode, have already traded star running back Christian McCaffrey, and are also said to be listening to offers for multiple other players on the roster, including wideout DJ Moore.
The Los Angeles Rams may have just caught a big break for the Sunday matchup against the 49ers, with star San Francisco wideout Deebo Samuel set to miss the game with a hamstring injury, per Niners GM John Lynch.
OCT 24 3 RAMS COMING? The Rams have designated DB Troy Hill, linebacker Travin Howard and receiver Van Jefferson to return off the IR list. These moves open up th 21-day practice window for each of them, with Los Angeles having to make a decision about their activation to the 53-man roster during that three-week period.
The Rams were one of the teams, alongside the Bills and 49ers, who were mentioned to be in the race for McCaffrey. Now they will face him following their bye week.
Just last week against the Rams, McCaffrey had 158 yards from scrimmage in 20 total touches. And for the season, the Stanford product has 670 yards from scrimmage on 118 touches, with three touchdowns, in an otherwise anemic offense.
“I was honestly confused,” Anderson said after the game. “I wanted to be in the game. I’ve never had somebody yell to get out of the game. So I was honestly confused and upset by that. I should be. I don’t see nobody that is a true competitor, that knows the value they bring and has true passion for the game, that will be OK with being told not to do something or being taken out of something when they didn’t do nothing wrong.”
OCT 16 ROBBIE GONE After a handful of arguments with his own coaches on his own sidelines, Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilkes took action, kicking Robbie Anderson out of the game and sent him to the locker room.
Anderson’s name is on the list of Panthers players on the trade block, with a lot of gossip centering around star Christian McCaffrey. But this incident, as the Rams are manhandling Carolina, could accelerate Anderson’s departure.
The Los Angeles Rams have elevated running back Ronnie Rivers and offensive tackle Chandler Brewer from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of Sunday’s game with the Carolina Panthers.
Rivers’ elevation comes in the wake of trade speculation surrounding fellow running back Cam Akers. If Rivers plays, it’ll be his first regular season action as a professional.

Rams head coach Sean McVay has announced that left guard David Edwards has cleared concussion protocol and will be available to play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Los Angeles Rams have placed receiver Van Jefferson on injured reserve, signed defensive back Grant Haley to the active roster, activated receiver Jacob Harris from the practice squad to the active roster and signed outside linebacker Keir Thomas to the practice squad.
Haley has spent much of the last year on Los Angeles’ practice squad, while Harris has been brought up on gameday for the second consecutive week. Thomas, a preseason standout, was waived from the active roster Friday to create room for Kendall Blanton, but is now back in the fold.
Following the three-game suspension of tight end Bryce Hopkins, the Los Angeles Rams have signed tight end Kendall Blanton from the practice squad of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Blanton has spent time with the Rams before, signing as an undrafted free agent in 2019. He played in 11 regular season games with two starts for the Rams last season, making four catches for 37 yards on seven targets
In the wake of injuries to their offensive front, the Los Angele Rams have signed veteran center/guard Matt Skura to their practice squad, according to reports.
Skura has played in 68 career games, starting 65 of those games, 51 of which came over four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. He also spent time with the Miami Dolphins.
Anchrum won a pair of national championships with the Clemson Tigers and was part of the Rams’ Super Bowl squad last season. With Anchrum out, A.J. Jackson played in his place.
The Rams have added offensive line depth in the wake of the injury to starter Brian Allen, promoting Jeremiah Kolone from the practice squad to the full-time roster, the team announced.
The team placed rookie running back Kyren Williams on injured reserve after he underwent surgery to repair a high-ankle sprain that he suffered during a kickoff in the season-opening loss to the Buffalo Bills on Thursday.
In his place, LA signed Pro Bowl long-snapper Matt Overton to a deal. Overton played his first five seasons for the Indianapolis Colts and was named to his first Pro Bowl with the team in 2013.
Since then, Overton has played with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, and, most recently, the Los Angeles Chargers, who he appeared in all 17 games for last season.
According to reports from ESPN, the Los Angeles Rams were monitoring the status of San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and hoped to potentially sign him were he to be cut.
