Today, it was learned that injured Los Angeles Rams RT Rob Havenstein would be coming off the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list, allowing him to rejoin team activities:

Havenstein had been nursing a foot injury, and was placed on the PUP list back in July. It’s great news that he’s on course for the opener, as the Rams will want to get their starting five some preseason reps and allow Rodger Saffold to move back to LG, where he can help OT Greg Robinson:

Havenstein was one of the unheralded rookies of 2015, having been the only rookie OL to not allow a sack. Hopefully Havenstein is able to build on his quick start and provide some much needed stability at RT.
