Coach Sean McVay spoke with the media during a press conference following Thursday's practice and was able to give an update on the current injuries for the Los Angeles Rams.
When it comes to safety Nick Scott, a ton of fans were holding their breath as it was reported by Ryan Anderson of LAFB that he had to be helped off the field on Tuesday. Turns out it wasn't as bad as previously thought to be but he is still expected to miss some time. When asked for the status update, McVay stated that it’s a sprain of the knee and the hope is to have him back by the Chicago Bears game in Week 1.
Star corner Darious Williams was held out of practice Tuesday due to an ankle injury which was a bit concerning due to his importance to the defense. The good news is it does not seem that serious of an injury at all. When asked about William’s ankle, this was the response:
I expect him to be back later this week or next week. He just kind of had a little ankle tweak and we just want to be really smart with him so that we can get him back sooner than later. But we do expect him back within the next week.
Rookie CB Robert Rochell is back at practice after it seemed he could miss a significant amount of time after having surgery on his wrist. McVay said “He’s able to do a lot of the drills full speed off to the side, but we will have to put him in a cast when he plays full speed. What that exactly looks like and what the timetable is, anywhere over the next couple of weeks.”
Rochell is expected to have a big role on the defense as his versatility to play multiple positions provides a ton of value to defensive coordinator Raheem Morris.
