Rams waived/injured RB Isaiah Pead (torn ACL).

Pead tore his ACL while returning the opening kickoff last weekend against the Packers. If he clears waivers, he'll go to the Rams' injured reserve list. He's obviously out for the season, but the former second-round pick has two years left on his rookie contract. A claiming team would have him for 2015. For Pead's sake, it might be best to get claimed and get a fresh start in a new city.

Contract-year RT Joe Barksdale wants to re-sign with the Rams.

Barksdale has flown under the radar in St. Louis. The former third-round pick of the Raiders appeared in all 16 games last season, making 13 starts, and graded out as a top-eight right tackle at Pro Football Focus. He's a plus pass protector. Barksdale was a four-star high school recruit to LSU.

No. 2 overall pick Greg Robinson will start at left guard in Saturday's third preseason game and then kick to left tackle once Jake Long departs.

Robinson has been pulling double duty all camp, working as the starting left guard and also getting time at his eventual position -- left tackle. He hasn't been good in the first two preseason games, giving up one sack, one quarterback hit and one quarterback hurry on just 66 snaps.

Rams LT Jake Long (knee) was a full participant Tuesday's practice, and will be active for Saturday's preseason game against the Browns.

Long is ready to return to Sam Bradford's blindside. Barring a setback in this weekend's regular-season dress rehearsal, Long will be all-systems-go for Week 1.

Sam Bradford has noticed a "night and day" difference with Brian Quick this year compared to his first two seasons in the league.

"He’s always been tremendously talented, but I think we’re starting to see him really put everything together," Bradford continued. Coach Jeff Fisher chimed in, "I believe that he’s crossed the line now." Quick has consistently been running with the first-team offense all summer opposite Kenny Britt, and could be primed for a third-year breakout. He's currently going undrafted in 12-team leagues.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Following Saturday's preseason game, coach Jeff Fisher said Tre Mason "needs to keep working" on pass protection.

Working as the third-string back, Mason didn't recognize a blitz from Sam Barrington and got Shaun Hill sacked. On the very next possession, he failed to pick up blitzing Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and got Hill sacked again. It's not a surprise, as Mason was rarely even asked to pass protect at Auburn. He's not a threat to Zac Stacy and may not even pass up Benny Cunningham this season.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Sunday that RB Isaiah Pead has a torn ACL and will be lost for the season.

Drop him in Dynasty leagues if you haven't already. The 2012 second-rounder had been reduced to special teams since falling to No. 4 on St. Louis' tailback depth chart. Pead will enter the last year of his rookie deal in 2015.

Rams G/C Barrett Jones recently underwent back surgery and may miss the entire 2014 season.

Jones, last year's fourth-round pick, didn't play a single snap as a rookie and may not play one again this season. He was experiencing lower back pain earlier in camp. When it didn't subside, the Rams sent him to get it repaired. Tim Barnes and Davin Joseph project as St. Louis' top interior backups.

Coach Jeff Fisher said after Saturday night's preseason game the Rams believe RB Isaiah Pead has a torn ACL.

The 50th overall pick in the 2012 draft, this should solidify Pead as a bust in St. Louis. He had been relegated to special teams after falling behind Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham, and rookie Tre Mason on the running back chart.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Tre Mason rushed for 30 yards on 12 carries in the Rams' second preseason game on Saturday against the Packers.

Mason was the third running back through the rotation, once again. After getting praised for picking up a blitz in the preseason opener, Mason blew two assignments and got Shaun Hill sacked on one of them. He has a long way to go in pass protection, and it may keep him mostly as a spectator behind three-down backs Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham for much of his rookie year.

Isaiah Pead will undergo an MRI Sunday on his knee.

Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the "prospects aren't good." Pead left Saturday's game in the first quarter after suffering a non-contact knee injury. He could be headed to injured reserve.

Kenny Britt caught one pass for five yards in St. Louis' second preseason game versus Green Bay on Saturday.

Britt was targeted twice on the afternoon; Sam Bradford missed a wide-open Britt down the right sideline for what would have been a gain of 30-plus yards. Britt started opposite Brian Quick. Tavon Austin manned the slot. Britt played two series but injured his left shoulder on his five-yard catch. He remained on the sideline with an ice pack on the dinged up shoulder. It doesn't appear serious.

Sam Bradford completed 9-of-12 passes for 101 yards and one touchdown in the Rams' second preseason game against the Packers on Saturday.

It was Bradford's first action since tearing his ACL 300 days ago in Carolina. He looked shaky on the opening drive, opting for simple check-downs and missing a wide-open Kenny Britt down the right sideline for what would have been a 30-plus yard gain. Bradford settled down on the second series, leading the Rams on an eight-play, 76-yard touchdown drive. He drilled a 41-yard strike to Brian Quick before finding Lance Kendricks for an 11-yard score on a perfect throw. Bradford has high-end QB2 upside but captains a run-heavy offense.

Isaiah Pead was forced from Saturday's preseason game with a knee injury

Pead got hurt on a kick return in the first quarter. It was a non-contact injury, so this has potential to be serious. Pead had to be helped off the field and was later carted to the locker room. The Rams should provide an update on his status after the game.
Aug 16 - 4:43 PM

Sam Bradford will play at least one quarter in Saturday's preseason game against the Packers.

Bradford sat out the Rams' preseason opener. His action against the Packers will be his first live reps since tearing his ACL last October. Bradford has drawn mostly positive reviews for his work in camp, but few players have more to prove on the regular-season field. Thanks to the old CBA, Bradford is making an astounding $14.015 million this season.
