Week 2: Los Angeles Rams Rookie Report

Rookie LB Josh Forrest got his first start against Seattle

Week 2 is behind us.

Here’s your weekly rookie report:

QB Jared Goff

After being inactive in Week 1 as the team’s third-string quarterback, rookie QB Jared Goff finally made his debut... as the team’s backup signal caller.

Its ‘bout to be lit son.

TE Tyler Higbee

The fourth-round pick definitely is getting playing time in the Rams’ two tight end sets on offense. He was out on offense for 26 snaps – 42% of the offensive plays.

The cat just is not getting many looks his way. He has one catch for two yards, which came early in the first quarter of Week 1’s game against San Francisco.

The kid’s gonna make an impact. Wait for it...

WR Pharoh Cooper

King Tutt_chdown – as rookie receiver Pharoh Cooper refers to himself on Twitter and Instagram – is still out with injury.

TE Temarrick Hemingway

Temarrick is as raw as ODB likes it. He still has a ways to go before seeing the field.

His best shot at PT is on special teams, not that we did not know this already.

LB Josh Forrest

The stunner.

Rookie LB Josh Forrest got the starting nod at outside linebacker opposite of Mark Barron. He was only in there for 10 plays but it is a huge first step for the former Kentucky Wildcat.

WR Michael Thomas

Buried at the bottom of a receiver depth chart. Thomas only played on five snaps on Sunday (10 snaps if you include his five ST snaps).

If he had any semblance of having good hands, he’d be higher up on the list of WRs. The position group could use a playmaker. Thomas was that at Southern Miss, but we have only seen him make drops not plays.
