Preseason football isn’t meant to be pretty. Sometimes it’s a aspiring NFLer trying to show he belongs while other times it’s an established player having a bad night and placing himself in jeopardy of getting cut. It’s ultimately up to the coaches to decide which is which.
That’s where the Los Angeles Rams find themselves after two weeks in the preseason.
Demby is clearly out of his element at center and trending down, which is unfortunate for the Los Angeles Rams. They could use some depth at the position - especially given Aaron Neary’s suspension at the beginning of the regular season.
Fact is Demby isn’t playing well. He could make the initial roster then be placed on the practice squad when Neary returns, or he could be left off the roster from the get-go and the Rams could look elsewhere for depth.
Given his success in the past as a returner and his TD against the Cowboys, it’s hard to see Natson being left off the roster. But turnovers are never a good thing - especially during the season when you’re not entrenched on the roster.
Given the success of KhaDarel Hodge this preseason as a WR, Natson’s roster spot may not be as secure as we thought heading into camp.
EDGE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo
I was flat out wrong thinking that Okoronkwo could be on his way out. Props to him for showing up and making an impact. He looks safe after the Rams second preseason game.
