Rams WLB Alec Ogletree (leg, I.R./Recall) will return to practice next week.

Ogletree has been out since Week 4. He’s eligible to return next week, but the Rams don’t plan to activate him until the regular-season finale. Ogletree was averaging 10-plus tackles per game before going down. He’ll be fully healthy for the offseason if he doesn’t return.

Rams placed WLB Alec Ogletree (fractured fibula) on injured reserve/designated to return.

S Christian Bryant was signed in a corresponding roster move. The Rams gauged Ogletree's recovery for three weeks after undergoing surgery, but determined he couldn't beat an I.R./return timeline. The rangy outside linebacker will be ineligible to return before Week 16. Former safety Mark Barron is filling in on the weak side during Ogletree's absence.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher confirms WLB Alec Ogletree has a fractured fibula, and expects him to be sidelined "at least" eight weeks.

Ogletree underwent surgery on his leg Tuesday. The third-year pro is almost certainly headed to injured reserve/designated to return. We won't see him before December.

Rams WLB Alec Ogletree will need surgery on his fractured ankle and fibula.

The operation suggests Ogletree suffered a fracture, as did coach Jeff Fisher's comments following Sunday's win over Arizona. Fisher said Ogletree might be a candidate for injured reserve/designated for return. Ogletree is a big part of the Rams' run and pass defense as a highly athletic, long-armed coverage maven who also fills with speed against opposing rushing attacks.

Rams WLB Alec Ogletree exited Week 4 against the Cardinals with an ankle injury.

Ogletree had to be carted off the field after getting his right leg rolled up from behind on a third-quarter running play. Daren Bates has replaced Ogletree.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch expects second-year LB Alec Ogletree to "thrive" in DC Gregg Williams' scheme this season.

Ogletree was credited with 117 tackles and six forced fumbles last year, but had just 1.5 sacks. The Rams will have a more attacking-style defense under Williams, which should translate into more sack opportunities and TFLs. Ogletree showed big-play ability as a rookie and has breakout appeal in IDP leagues. He posted double-digit tackles in 10 games last season and will return in a three-down role next to James Laurinaitis.

Rookie WLB Alec Ogletree was the Rams' 2013 tackle leader with 155 based on coaches' film review.

He was credited with 117 on Ogletree also forced a whopping six fumbles and had ten pass breakups, though he graded out poorly in Pro Football Focus' 4-3 outside linebacker ratings. Ogletree remains a building block for IDP leaguers. The 30th overall pick in April's draft is just 22 years old.

The Rams are bringing in former Titans All-Pro OLB Keith Bulluck to work with first-round rookie LOLB Alec Ogletree.

Bulluck, who spent ten seasons in Tennessee with Rams coach Jeff Fisher from 2000-09, will be at Rams Park from Sunday through Wednesday working alongside Ogletree. At the team's post-draft press conference, Fisher specifically mentioned Bulluck as a player that Ogletree -- the 30th pick -- reminded him of.

Rams signed No. 30 overall pick LOLB Alec Ogletree to a four-year contract.

Ogletree is a highly athletic former safety, but he's a trainwreck character-wise off the field. Coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead love him, and Fisher even compared Ogletree to former Titans LB Keith Bulluck. Ogletree is expected to man the left outside 'backer spot, while Jo-Lonn Dunbar handles the right side.

Rather than weak- and strong-side linebackers, the Rams will use Alec Ogletree on the left side and Jo-Lonn Dunbar on the right.

Coach Jeff Fisher provided no detailed explanation, but Ogletree will end up playing the strong side more and Dunbar the weak side just because that's how the left and right sides work. Ogletree is likely to be employed in pass coverage frequently, matching up with tight ends due to his long arms and terrific range. Dunbar will be more of a run stuffer and situational pass rusher.

Per the team's official website, Rams first-round OLB Alec Ogletree is going to work at strong-side linebacker initially.

Ogletree is best suited for the weak side where he can chase ball carriers and cover tight ends. The Rams apparently feel comfortable with Jo-Lonn Dunbar sticking at WILL instead of flipping him to SAM. Ogletree intercepted a pass intended for the tight end on his first snap at minicamp, for what it's worth.

Rams selected Georgia OLB Alec Ogletree with the No. 30 overall pick.

Ogletree (6-foot-2 1/2, 242) is a long-armed (33 1/2"), highly athletic converted safety who racked up 20 career tackles for loss, six sacks, and four forced fumbles as a 22-game college starter. Unfortunately, he's a trainwreck off the field, getting arrested for theft in 2010 and DUI this past February. On it, Ogletree is not an especially physical player but possesses terrific range, both sideline to sideline in the run game and as a cover 'backer versus tight ends and slot receivers. He ran 4.7-flat at the Combine with a 1.6 ten-yard split and did 20 reps on the bench. Some were projecting him as an inside linebacker, but Ogletree does his best work chasing from the weak side and should step into that role for the Rams, along with staying on the field in passing situations.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch believes Georgia LB Alec Ogletree could prove "particularly tempting" to the Rams if WRs Tavon Austin and Cordarrelle Patterson are off the board by No. 16.

Ogletree played inside 'backer in the SEC, but per reporter Jim Thomas, the Rams view him as an "athletic, speedy run-and-chase outside linebacker." Ogletree is a character nightmare, but coach Jeff Fisher has made a habit of nabbing talented players who tumble down the draft board because of off-the-field concerns. Ogletree may be a more realistic possibility for the Rams' second first-round pick at No. 22.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock says he is "scared to death" of Georgia LB Alec Ogletree as a first-round pick due both to off- and on-field concerns.

Ogletree is a candidate to slide out of the first round because his character is a nightmare. "I’m scared to death about Ogletree, both for on- and off-the-field issues," Mayock said. "When you put the tape on, he has no clue what he’s doing. He looks like a safety that somebody plugged inside at inside linebacker. He just runs around." Mayock also called Ogletree's work ethic and passion for the game "question marks right now."
