The Los Angeles Rams have activated cornerback Darious Williams from short-term injured reserve, making Williams available for Sunday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans. The return of Williams means that he and Jalen Ramsey could go back to being the dynamic duo, leaving Robert Rochell, David Long, and Donte’ Deayon to fight for CB3 snaps, but Ramsey is listed as Questionable due to a knee injury.

Also questionable are Von Miller, Robert Woods, and Ernest Jones, with Sebastian Joseph-Day ruled OUT and he will be indefinitely.

The Rams also activated two players from the practice squad in time to play on Sunday night, including defensive tackle Marquise Copeland and defensive back Antoine Brooks. The loss of Joseph-Day leads to the temporary activation of Copeland — both he and Brooks will revert back to the practice squad after Sunday — and the uncertainty at cornerback means that Brooks will make his second appearance for LA.

Brooks played in 19 special teams snaps against the Houston Texans in Week 8. A Steelers sixth round pick in 2020, Brooks made two tackles for Pittsburgh in four games last season.

Copeland went undrafted in 2019, signed with the Rams, and he has mostly hung on the practice squad ever since. This will be Copeland’s second career game, having also played in Week 1 vs the Cowboys in 2020.
