@3k_ Rams have plenty of RBs, and they're a little down at DT w/Doug Worthington not practicing.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) August 9, 2015
Not earth-shattering considering the stable at running back, but it does suggest the Rams are concerned about Doug Worthington's status throughout camp and the preseason.
Terrence Franks hadn't done much in camp, though it's not as if he's had a ton of opportunity either. The Rams aren't as reliant on their UDFA class as they have been in years past now with four years of Snisher drafts propping up the roster. I loved Franks' personal story getting to this point, but I couldn't give him more than a two out of 10 in his roster preview piece.
Marcus Forston, for his part, spent two and a piece of a third seasons with the New England Patriots after going undrafted himself following the 2012 NFL Draft. He'll occupy the veteran spot Worthington's injury has opened.
