The LA Rams lost to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. Here are the Rams snap counts from the game.
- Cam Akers only got one snap this week, no carries. He has not gotten many snaps this season without getting a carry and that lack of versatility may have kept him off the field against the 49ers. It wasn’t that Sean McVay was abandoning the run necessarily, but his gameplan in that area didn’t involve anyone other than Darrell Henderson. Malcolm Brown essentially took part in one series where he wasn’t just out there to block.
- Van Jefferson is the other second round rookie who has seen his playing time nearly disappear.
- Darious Williams had a season-low 60-percent of the snaps, losing playing time to Troy Hill when the Rams are in two-cornerback sets. Williams hadn’t been below 85-percent all year.
- Greg Gaines had a season-high 26 snaps.
- Samson Ebukam’s snap percentage has gone from 74 to 54 to 48 to 31 to nine and then back up to 29 this season. Kenny Young had a season-low 34-percent of snaps. If LA has a dire weakness on their defense, it is the linebacker position. Justin Hollins got a career-high 35 snaps. He had two tackles.
- Terrell Burgess saw nine snaps after getting none against Washington. Terrell Lewis also had nine snaps
- Burgess, Nick Scott and Natrez Patrick lead the way on special teams snaps, followed by David Long, Troy Reeder and Johnny Mundt.
- I thought Nsimba Webster looked like a better punt returner than Cooper Kupp.
