  Rams | LA Rams' injury report for Week 10    Fri Nov 8, 04:46 PM

Los Angeles Rams LB Bryce Hager (shoulder) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 10 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Nov. 8, but has also been ruled out. WR JoJo Natson (illness) was held out of practice for a second straight day Friday and is listed as questionable. RB Todd Gurley (non-injury) did not practice Friday but does not appear on the injury report. DT Tanzel Smart (illness), RB Malcolm Brown (ankle), LB Clay Matthews (jaw) and OT Andrew Whitworth (non-injury) practiced in full Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: Matthews will be a big addition to this defense. He, Dante Fowler and Aaron Donald will keep Mason Rudolph uncomfortable all afternoon.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown listed as limited    Wed Nov 6, 08:03 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Footballguys view: Brown could return this weekend and would probably relegate Darrell Henderson to #3 running back status. Either way, Todd Gurley is the only fantasy relevant running back on this roster without an injury to Gurley.

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (ankle), LB Bryce Hager (shoulder) and LB Clay Matthews (jaw) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 25, and have been ruled out for Week 8. CB Troy Hill (hamstring) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable. OT Andrew Whitworth (non-injury) fully participated in practice and is not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Darrell Henderson gets another chance to impress with work behind Todd Gurley. Hill is the #2 corner now. With him hurting, there's no reason for the Bengals to test Jalen Ramsey.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown expected to receive bulk of carries    Sun Oct 13, 08:23 AM

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown is expected to be the team's featured back in Week 6's game against the San Francisco 49ers, as a result of RB Todd Gurley (quadriceps) being ruled out. RB Darrell Henderson will also likely see an increased number of offensive snaps.

Footballguys view: Brown is facing a very tough run defense and is only a low ceiling flex, better suited for use in nonPPR leagues. Henderson should be added in leagues with large enough benches because he could make enough of an impression to have a larger role going forward.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown praised by Todd Gurley    Sat Apr 20, 09:13 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown has 'always been reliable' when called upon, according to RB Todd Gurley. 'If I go out, he's doing the exact same thing,' Gurley said.

Footballguys view: Brown certainly has talent as a runner when healthy. Last season, Brown was banged up with a collarbone injury that landed him on Injured Reserve after 12 games. The Rams re-signed Brown to a two-year, $3.25 million contract earlier this offseason and he'll be the primary backup to Todd Gurley in 2019.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown staying with Rams    Fri Mar 22, 09:22 AM

Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent RB Malcolm Brown's two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet by the Detroit Lions was matched by the Rams Friday, March 22. He'll receive a $100,000 signing bonus and $1 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: This was an easy call, as the two-year deal is actually cheaper on a per year basis than his restricted free agent tender. The Rams probably don't need to make another move at running back unless they are worried about Todd Gurley's knee.

  Rams | Decision on Malcolm Brown expected soon    Thu Mar 21, 06:07 PM

  Lions | Detroit gives Malcolm Brown offer sheet    Tue Mar 19, 06:00 PM

Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent RB Malcolm Brown was given an offer sheet Tuesday, March 19, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Brown was an undrafted free agent, and the Rams gave him an 'original round tender' meaning they won't get compensation if they choose not to match the Lions offer. The Rams now have until Monday, March 24, to match the offer.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown out for the year    Tue Dec 4, 03:36 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown (clavicle) will not play again this season, according to sources. His prognosis following the season has not been determined yet.

Footballguys view: Brown is a talented backup behind Todd Gurley but the Rams have more talent behind both. Rookie John Kelly makes for a great handcuff in the fantasy playoffs. Kelly followed Alvin Kamara at Tennessee and has a good all-purpose skill set. The Rams picked him up in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL draft and Fantasy GMs with space on the bench should add him as a lottery ticket for the rest of the season. Dynasty GMs should already be all over this prospect.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski, Gordon, and Michel should be ok, but this being a Sunday night game complicates matters. We expect to hear more about their status on Sunday morning, but for now play them as you normally would.

  Rams | John Kelly to be the backup?    Sat May 12, 11:41 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB John Kelly's versatility as a receiver makes him a better candidate to be the backup to RB Todd Gurley than RB Malcolm Brown, according to Lance Zierlein of NFL.com.

Footballguys view: Kelly had 37 catches last year for the Volunteers and can stay on the field all three downs if need be. He's violent as a runner and will use his stiff arm to create space for himself. Kelly is not creative or elusive with the ball in his hands, and has more of a 'no nonsense' style of running the ball. We'll see how he compares to Brown (more of a power back) in the Rams battle for backup running back.

  Rams | Malcolm Brown expected to start in Week 17    Thu Dec 28, 08:53 PM

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown is expected to make his first-ever start in the team's Week 17 game Sunday, Dec. 31, against the San Francisco 49ers, with RB Todd Gurley not playing.

Footballguys view: Brown is an excellent Week 17 RB2 candidate, getting all of the work in a matchup that had a final score of 41-39 the first time around. His game has grown this year and he can give teams something to think about when he hits free agency in 2019.
