The LB corps could get a shakeup after the L to the Cowboys

The Los Angeles Rams second preseason game gave us clarity in a few areas, but also opened up a few others that the team has to touch up before solidifying the depth chart.

ILB

The injury to ILB Micah Kiser doesn’t provide as much clarity as one would believe. While Bryce Hager will have the first opportunity to prove he should be the starter next to Cory Littleton, Travin Howard and Dakota Allen are playing well and charging hard at Hager.

Hager will be around regardless of where he falls here due to special teams contributions, but he has a lot to prove in the next two weeks if he’s going to fend off Howard and Allen.

EDGE

What a difference a week makes. Last week, I was starting to lose confidence that EDGE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo would ever make an impact for the Rams. I’m taking egg on the face for that one this week.

Okoronkwo balled out against the Cowboys and changed the narrative surrounding him instantly. We may have entered the game against the Cowboys wondering if he was going to make the roster, but we left contemplating how many snaps he’ll steal from Clay Matthews.
