The St. Louis Rams have found a familiar reinforcement for their thinning offensive line. Quinn Ojinnaka, who worked as the team's starting left guard through the preseason, is coming back to the team. The Rams told TST that Ojinnaka was "likely" coming back to the team.
Ojinnaka made a series of cryptic tweets on Tuesday morning, signaling the return.

That middle one is a picture of the city skyline, always a dead giveaway.
The move make sense for the Rams who are more than familiar with Ojinnaka. He took most of the training camps reps at the left guard spot with the ones. He also spent some time at offensive tackle, filling in for Rodger Saffold for a few days.
Ojinnaka brings the versatility to play more than one position on the offensive line. The question is where the Rams will use him this week. He could fill in for Rokevious Watkins, retaking his old left guard job. Robert Turner was there to start the game against the Lions, but with Scott Wells on the shelf, Turner is now the full-time center. He might also replace Saffold at left tackle, a job currently held by Wayne Hunter.
