Rams LB Mario Haggan left Sunday's game against the Jets with an elbow injury.

Haggan was billed as "questionable" in the first half, but was nowhere to be found after halftime. The reserve linebacker and special teamer will be iffy for Week 12.

Rams LB Mario Haggan left Thursday night's game against the Cardinals with a thigh injury and is doubtful to return.

Haggan is a backup outside linebacker and core special teams player. He was signed as a free agent in the offseason.

Mario Haggan is ticketed for strong-side linebacker and special teams in St. Louis.

Haggan will back up Jo-Lonn Dunbar. The Rams targeted both Dunbar and Haggan early in free agency, but decided to hold off on the latter until after the draft.

Rams signed LB Mario Haggan and OT Barry Richardson.

Richardson struggled mightily as the Chiefs' right tackle last season, but the Rams are giving him a kick of the tires at a position of severe weakness. He's still only 26. Haggan, 32, appeared in 16 games with Denver in 2011, making one start and focusing on special teams. He was a starter in 2009 and 2010.

The Broncos have moved LB Mario Haggan back to his natural strong-side linebacker spot.

The Broncos toyed with the idea of using Haggan at defensive end, but newly acquired Derrick Harvey will be the swing end behind Elvis Dumervil and Robert Ayers. Now Haggan is pegged as first-round rookie Von Miller's backup on the strong side and the No. 3 middle 'backer behind Joe Mays and Nate Irving.

The Broncos are considering moving Mario Haggan from linebacker to defensive end in their new 4-3 defense.

Haggan doesn't fit the new scheme as a linebacker, but he looks the part of an end at 6-foot-3, 267, and had five sacks last season. Denver would view him as a nickel rusher behind Robert Ayers and Elvis Dumervil, although Von Miller is also ticketed for that role. Haggan may need a big camp to save his roster spot.

Broncos LB Mario Haggan faces an "uphill battle" for playing time -- and possibly a roster spot -- in Denver's new defense.

Haggan has played in all schemes and proven an effective linebacker, but salary ($1.93 million), age (31), and system fit may be working against him. Coach John Fox has stated that Haggan would compete for playing time in the middle. Rookie Nate Irving is the clear favorite there, with Joe Mays behind him.

Broncos LB Mario Haggan is expected to be sent back to a reserve role after the team drafted Von Miller and Nate Irving.

A try-hard overachiever, Haggan offered valuable versatility and experience on an over-matched defense the past two years. Now in full rebuilding mode under John Fox, though, the Broncos are expected to line up Miller on the strong side, Irving in the middle, and D.J. Williams on the weak side.

Broncos LB Mario Haggan is coming off three sacks and a forced fumble that was returned for a touchdown against the Chiefs last Sunday.

The former special teamer has become a versatile every-down player in the Broncos' new big-backer scheme. Haggan has proven capable of stopping the run, covering tight ends, and rushing the passer this season.

With the release of Akin Ayodele, Broncos LB Mario Haggan will move back to inside linebacker.

There has been a ton of shuffling among the Broncos' linebackers, but Haggan is much better suited to play on the inside. Jarvis Moss will compete with Jason Hunter, Baraka Atkins, and rookie Kevin Alexander to start opposite Robert Ayers now that Haggan has jumped back inside.

Mario Haggan is expected to be a three-down player at outside linebacker.

Thanks to Elvis Dumervil's injury, Haggan is getting his old job back opposite Robert Ayers. Haggan had just 64 tackles and one sack while starting every game at outside linebacker last season. There's not much upside here.

Following the season-ending loss of Elvis Dumervil, Mario Haggan has been working out at outside linebacker.

Hagan started outside last season, but he was expected to move inside to battle Akin Ayodele for a starting spot. Dumervil's likely season-ending loss has changed those plans. Haggan doesn't excite as an outside pass rusher, as he's better in run support than he is blitzing off the edge. Meanwhile, Ayodele appears the favorite to open the season alongside ILB D.J. Williams.

Coach Josh McDaniels confirmed that Mario Haggan is entering the offseason as his starting strongside inside linebacker.

McDaniels is giving Haggan a vote of confidence, but he also signed Akin Ayodele to compete. With Andra Davis gone, the Broncos are sorely going to need one of the two to step up. Haggan is the superior run defender.

The Denver Post expects Mario Haggan to be moved to inside linebacker following Andra Davis' release.

Spencer Larsen and Wesley Woodyard have also been mentioned as internal options to replace Davis. Haggan's natural position is on the inside, but it's hard to get excited about him as a starter considering the 30-year-old had been primarily a special teamer before 2009.
