The Los Angeles Rams’ secondary suffered a big loss early in their matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey is ill and is questionable to return to the game.

Ramsey started the game, but went to the locker room after just a few snaps because he is feeling sick. Los Angeles didn’t list the corner on the injury report leading up to the game, so this comes as a surprise.

Ramsey is one of the best corners in the league. Pro Football Focus gives Ramsey a 72.6 overall grade this season. With Ramsey sidelined, expect David Long to get some extra snaps in this one.

Los Angeles’ defense is facing off against rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who is making his first career start for Miami. The Rams got to the Alabama product early, with superstar defensive lineman Aaron Donald getting a strip-sack on the Dolphins’ first drive of the game
