Random Ramsdom: Joe Noteboom was hurt in matchup against 49ers

Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 9/18/23

NFL: Los Angeles Rams Training Camp Kiyoshi Mio-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams were defeated by the San Francisco 49ers in Week Two of the NFL season. Read about some winners and losers from the game here. The Rams had a lot of positive moments but one not so positive moment was the loss of Joe Noteboom. I am sure that there is more to it than just Noteboom getting hurt, but it did seem like the offensive line was not the same when he left. Hopefully the injury is not serious or at the very least, hopefully the Rams do not lose more lineman and have a repeat of last year.

What have you thought of the Rams offensive line so far? I’ve been impressed. Today only made me think this team is better than I had projected but we’ll see. 15 games to go until the next phase of the season. Please comment on anything you’d like and thanks for checking out some links today!

Rams Guard Joe Noteboom Injured vs. 49ers - Injury Tracker (fannation/ramsdigest)

“SEPT 17 NOTEBOOM INJURED Los Angeles Rams starting right guard Joe Noteboom was forced to exit the team’s Sunday matchup with the 49ers.

Noteboom walked off of the field under his own power but has yet to return.

He was replaced by Tremayne Anchrum and is currently questionable to return.

SEPT 17 AKERS DEACTIVATED The Los Angeles Rams will be without running back Cam Akers as they are set to host NFC West rivals, the San Francisco 49ers.

According to a report from Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer, Akers was deactivated on Sunday as rumors of a trade continue to swirl after he rushed for 29 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries in the Rams’ Week 1 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Other Rams inactives include running back Zach Evans, guard Kevin Dotson, tackle Warren McClendon and defensive lineman Desjuan Johnson.”

Puka Nacua’s 15-catch game for Rams breaks NFL rookie records (

“Najee Harris (2021), Saquon Barkley (2018), Roy Helu (2011) and Don Looney (1940) each had a 14-catch game as a rookie.

One week after he recorded 10 catches for 119 yards in his NFL debut, Nacua — with his 10th catch Sunday — broke Earl Cooper’s record, set in 1980, for most receptions by a player through his first two games. On the next play, Nacua broke the 100-yard receiving mark, becoming the first player to record 10 receptions and 100 receiving yards in each of his first two NFL games.

According to Elias Sports Bureau research, Nacua is now one of four players in NFL history to record 100 or more receiving yards in each of his first two NFL games, joining Looney (1940), DeSean Jackson (2008) and Will Fuller V (2016).”
