The Los Angeles Rams’ defense will get a nice boost Sunday when rookie pass-rusher Terrell Lewis will be activated for the first time this season.

The third-round pick from Alabama should get on the field some against the Washington Football Team. Lewis, who was injured in training camp, has been practicing for a couple of weeks and the Rams feel that he is now ready to play.

Lewis, a top college talent who has dealt with many injuries, will likely be eased into the playing rotation by the Rams’ coaching staff. But if Lewis can stay healthy, he will be a great boost to this defense as the season progresses.

Meanwhile, the Rams are hopeful starting linebacker Micah Kiser can play. He has been limited this week by a groin injury.

Also, rookie running back Cam Akers is still on track to return after being out since Week 2 with a ribs injury. He will be in the running back rotation at Washington.
