Kenny Britt will sit out this weekend's preseason game against the Browns with a shoulder "ding."

He suffered the injury against the Packers last week. It may end Britt's preseason, as starters don't typically run in the fourth affair. Britt finishes August with one catch for five yards, but appears to be the Rams' de facto No. 1 receiver. Still only 26 (next month), he's worth a WR5 flier despite his horrid 2013 in Tennessee.

Rams RB Isaiah Pead (torn ACL) has cleared waivers, and reverted to injured reserve.

Pead is signed through 2015, but didn't show enough through his first two years in the league for a team to take a chance as he recovers from a major knee injury. Pead will be on the outside looking in of the 53-man roster next summer.

Rams MLB James Laurinaitis (ankle) has resumed practicing.

Laurinaitis ended up missing nearly three weeks with a "mild" ankle sprain. The injury was to the same ankle Laurinaitis had scoped in the offseason. Despite the ankle issues, Laurinaitis should be considered ready to go for Week 1. He's never missed a game in five NFL seasons.

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.
Aug 17 - 5:17 PM

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.
Aug 17 - 12:06 PM

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.
Aug 16 - 6:25 PM

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.
