General News (Fri Sep 22): was placed in the concussion protocol during the fourth quarter of the team's Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Week 3: at San Francisco 49ers

All WR vs SF

FBG says: Good matchup. The Rams passing offense took a step back last week after their rout of the Colts. Jared Goff noticeably struggled, passing for only 224 yards and one touchdown with one interception. Goff only managed to complete nine passes to wide receivers as tight end Gerald Everett and Todd Gurley accounted for over half of his passing yards. Gurley looked very good as he is becoming more involved in the offense as a pass-catching back, hauling in three of his four targets for 48 yards and a touchdown. Rookie tight end Gerald Everett exploded for a 69-yard catch and run, on his way to 95 yards before hobbling off with an injured thigh in the third quarter. Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods were both on the field for 45 of the Rams 50 offensive snaps, but they were only targeted a combined six times with Watkins hauling in all two of his targets for 30 yards. Cooper Kupp was Goff's most targeted receiver again this week but only hauled in three of those targets for 33 yards. The 49ers pass defense played well against the Seahawks last week as they defended five passes while limiting Russell Wilson to only 198 passing yards and one touchdown in what was a very low scoring affair. Roaming safety Jaquiski Tartt had a great outing last week while middle linebacker Navorro Bowman led the team in solo tackles. The 49ers were without Reuben Foster though, as he is still considered week to week with an injured ankle. They also lost starting safety Eric Reid last week to a PCL injury. Reid has been officially ruled out for this game against the Rams. Cooper Kupp will match up against slot cornerback KWaun Williams, on whom Kupp has a solid four-inch height advantage. Williams has played terribly this season, so expect for Kupp to dominate that matchup. With poor to mediocre cornerbacks and a couple of key injuries, the Jared Goff should find some openings this Thursday night.
