Snap counts from the St. Louis Rams' Week 2 win did not contain any surprises. They do reveal a few things about the depth chart, confirming what we knew about how the receivers stack up and revealing where things stand behind Steven Jackson.

A look at the snap counts and a few thoughts about what they mean after the jump.

The Rams lined up in their base defense far more often this week, which is no surprise. The Redskins and RGIII are a far more run oriented team than the Lions were, and don't roll out in three receiver sets with the same frequency. You see that reflected in the snap counts for Bradley Fletcher and the corners. Jenkins and Finnegan were on the field for all but two plays.

Eugene Sims continues to get ample playing time as part of the defensive line rotation. His ability as a run stopped is no doubt a contributing factor there.

M Haggan LB - 7 11%
J Hull LB - 1 2%
T Johnson CB - 1 2%

On offense, Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson are clearly established as the top two receivers, in case you didn't notice that this week. Kendricks continues to get the bulk of the work as the team's primary tight end, though Matthew Mulligan certain made the most of his opportunities.

Brian Quick's playing time is dwindling. He was targeted by Sam Bradford once, and couldn't come up with the pass. Chris Givens, the other rookie, was targeted twice no avail.

Isaiah Pead's playing time has been slashed. Daryl Richardson was the rookie of note for the offense, getting virtually all of the work in place of Steven Jackson. That ought to confirm for you what the depth chart at running back looks like right now.
