Robert Quinn will play outside linebacker in the Rams' new 3-4 defense, but remain a down lineman in nickel situations.
Nickel situations, of course, are more common than not in the modern NFL. New coach Sean McVay compared Quinn's expected 2017 usage to DeMarcus Ware's, saying he'll play "Will" linebacker but "be treated like a rush end." The key to Quinn's season will be his health, not his "new" position. Quinn has appeared in just 17 games over the past two years. Apr 4 - 2:08 PM

Rams placed DE Robert Quinn on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.

It ends an injury-plagued, disappointing season for the sometimes elite pass rusher. Quinn had missed the past two games with a concussion, and previously dealt with a shoulder issue and mysterious illness. Quinn underwent back surgery last offseason. Although he's still only 26, and signed through 2019, Quinn has been a disappointment the past two years, registering nine sacks in 17 games. He'll be a bounce-back candidate in 2017, but needs a healthy offseason.

Rams DE Robert Quinn (concussion) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Seahawks.

This will be his third straight absence. Quinn practiced fully on Friday but has been a DNP all week. Obviously he's had some sort of setback. With nothing left to play for, Quinn may as well call it a season.

Rams declared RE Robert Quinn, LG Rodger Saffold, WR Tavon Austin, QB Sean Mannion, CB Steve Williams, OT Pace Murphy, and TE Temarrick Hemingway inactive for Week 13 against the Patriots.

Rams DE Robert Quinn (concussion, questionable) is unlikely to play Sunday in Week 13 against the Patriots.

Quinn didn't practice all week and remains in the league's concussion protocol. Consider him week to week. It's a big blow to the Rams' pass rush and should give Tom Brady more time to throw, which is never a good thing for opposing defenses.

Rams RE Robert Quinn (concussion) missed practice again on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 13 at New England.
