LA Rams rookie Jordan Fuller has been out since Week 5’s win over Washington with a shoulder injury, but on Monday the team announced that they designated him to return from injured reserve. The Rams are allowing 15 points per game in the three contests with Fuller as compared to 21 points per game without him; LA is second in points per game allowed overall.

The Rams next host the Seattle Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson, who leads the NFL with 28 passing touchdowns over the first eight games. Having Fuller back with Taylor Rapp in a supporting role would feasibly give LA a better chance to stop Wilson, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett given what we’ve seen from Fuller, a sixth round rookie out of Ohio State, thus far.

Fuller has 21 tackles and two passes defensed but more importantly has made several key stops when he’s been active.
