Rodger Saffold: 'I'm here to be that versatile guy'

The Rams offensive line has been a hot topic heading into the season, and it's far from settled.But Rodger Saffold's versatility to play multiple positions along the offensive line should only help the coaching staff as they try to figure out the best unit up front. Saffold has played left tackle, left guard and right guard for the Rams during his five seasons in St. Louis.

The St. Louis Rams have a bit of a conundrum in their backfield currently and possibly for the beginning of the season. Rams starting running back Tre Mason left Saturday’s 24-14 loos to the Indianapolis Colts with a hamstring injury.

St. Louis Rams DT Aaron Donald Forces Three And Out On His Own; Nearly Records Safety

When the St. Louis Rams took Aaron Donald in the draft last year it was a perfect example of the rich getting richer. They already had one of the best defensive lines in the league so the addition of Donald made it even better. He certainly proved what a great addition he is Saturday night when he forced the Colts in to a three and out situation on his own with three straight tackles...

Andre Johnson has been around a long time. There is no excuse for the St. Louis Rams defensive backs to leave the man as wide open as they did on the play below. They should know that he is not going to drop a pass that is that easy, and Andrew Luck is not going to miss him--but that's okay.This is the preseason.

Nick Foles wants to see improvement from first-team offense

It's evident the Rams first-team offense has struggled to string together any semblance of consistency in the first two preseason games. Part of that could be attributed to continuity along the offensive line, part of that could be attributed to a lack of playing time, part of that could be a lack of familiarity amongst one another.But Nick Foles would like to see better play all...
