Los Angeles Rams DE Dominique Easley was carted off at practice today from what seems to be an ankle injury:

No word on the severity of the injury at this point.

Our own Sosa Kremenjas provided Easley’s roster preview for 2017 yesterday:

With the Rams switching to a 3-4, Easley will be relied upon to start at DE opposite of [DE Aaron] Donald and next to [DT Michael] Brockers.

...

It’s hard to know what new Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips has in mind when it comes to moving players around, but for a guy who has a lot of athleticism and versatility, Easley can play a variety of roles, and effectively at that.

In a very limited role last year, Easley had 2.5 sacks, but a much greater pass rushing impact. Now with more time under his belt, Easley should fill up the stat sheet more and make his presence felt on the field a much greater amount.

There is no requirement for any official injury reporting in training camp or the preseason, so we may not know for a while what exact injury Easley suffered today.

Stay tuned.
