Tale of the tape: Rams, Chargers ready for battle of L.A.

LOS ANGELES -- For all the excitement and hype that surrounds the Los Angeles Rams in this moment, it’s important to remember where they were at this time last year -- sitting at 1-1, coming off 10 consecutive losing seasons and still uncertain about both how good they would be and where they might fit in this vast metropolis.

DL Michael Brockers (Shoulder) and C John Sullivan (Ankle) did not practice Wednesday, per the Rams' injury report, but coach Sean McVay said Thursday that it was just "maintenance" after they were banged up after Sunday's game. "It's not anything that we expect to affect their availability on Sunday," McVay said. "It's just more kind of being safe."

Rams ILB Mark Barron is "not very likely" to play Sunday against the Chargers, coach Sean McVay said Wednesday. Barron was a limited participant through training camp, did not play in the preseason and was sidelined for Week 1 and Week 2 as he deals with an Achilles issue.

The Rams signed WR KhaDarel Hodge to the active roster from the practice squad on Wednesday, giving depth to a position that was down to four receivers with Pharoh Cooper and Mike Thomas being placed on IR. They also activated RG Jamon Brown from the roster-exemption list. DE Marcus Martin, who was with the team during the preseason, has been signed to the practice squad.

Correction: The Rams have waived safety Isaiah Johnson from the active roster, which is now down to 51 players with RG Jamon Brown on a roster exemption. OT Darrell Williams Jr. has been added to the practice squad after a tryout today, the team announced.

The Rams are down to four healthy receivers - Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds - with Pharoh Cooper and Mike Thomas being placed on the injured reserve. Coach Sean McVay said Monday that a lack of receiver depth was a concern and that he was exploring more personnel groupings.

Rams RG Jamon Brown returns this week after serving a two-game suspension, but it doesn't sound as though Brown will automatically reclaim his starting role from Austin Blythe, who stood out as a fill-in the last two weeks. "He's played really good football, talking about Austin," coach Sean McVay said Monday. "I think Jamon Brown – what we feel good is this is a situation where we feel like we have two starting caliber guards. As far as how we move forward, it's not a result of anything Jamon hasn't done, but the fact that these are decisions that aren't very clear-cut is because of Austin's play."

The Rams have waived third-string quarterback Brandon Allen, the team announced Tuesday, opening a spot on the 53-man roster (Presumably for RG Jamon Brown, who returns this week from a two-game suspension). The Rams also cut TE Temerrick Hemingway and QB Luis Perez from the practice squad. Hemingway was a sixth-round pick in 2016, but was sidelined last season with a broken fibula.

KD jokes about joining Rams; McVay: 'Anytime'

Rams coach Sean McVay says he would have no problem fitting Kevin Durant into the Rams' lineup. "I bet he'd be pretty dangerous in the red zone," McVay joked.

Lindsey Thiry ESPN 

The Rams have placed backup receiver Mike Thomas on the injured reserve. Thomas suffered a hip injury in Week 1. With Thomas and returner/backup receiver Pharoh Cooper both on IR, the Rams only have four receivers (Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds) on their active roster.
