  • Cooks out Sunday....will meet with specialist

    I am praying for his health, and not just as a player. I want him back when he is healthy for the long term, instead of going back out on the first hit. Still pissed there was no flag, even though they made it up somewhat with the fine.

    Is it too early to start thinking about a replacement WR, or maybe using a 2 WR set more often? Or can Reynolds pick up the slack? We have depth at TE, maybe sub one in one certain plays?

      Rams' Brandin Cooks: Ruled out, meeting specialists [again]

      CBS Sports / by RotoWire Staff
      Nov. 06, 2019


      Cooks (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Steelers, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

      Cooks is travelling to Pittsburgh to meet with medical specialists as he nurses the fifth diagnosed concussion of his NFL career. The 2014 first-round pick previously met with a specialist during Los Angeles' bye. The Rams hope Cooks will manage to clear the five-step concussion protocol without missing much time, but giving the tricky nature of head injuries, the possibility of a multi-week absence can't be ruled out. Josh Reynolds will serve as the team's No. 3 wide receiver as long as Cooks is unable to go.

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Looks like Reynolds is in for Cooks until further plans are made.

        I am afraid to say that this might very well be his last year, health and family comes first

          If he’s intelligent. Sadly egos are a potent drug in this arena.

            I can see this. If he was smart with is finances, lifestyle, he is set. I wish nothing but the best for him.

              Cooks gives me the impression he answers the above Q. boxes with a check mark, affirmatively. Nonetheless, if he would be cleared 100% from his concussion situation, and IF he has the will and mental strength to finish the year in the active column, then "Welcome back!" At least for the rest of this season.

                Was thinking the same thing. This is his 2nd issue this year. That in and of itself is not good. How long does one continue to chance it?

                It takes time for these things to resolve. Would not be surprised if he's shut down for the rest of the season. Hope I'm wrong.

                  Completely agree with both this post and the earlier one from Dez. The danger involved with frequent concussions is in the open with the movie Concussion a few years back. I greatly appreciate the plays he has given us thus far, but he must consider his health first. Replacing him will not be easy if indeed he retires not simply for his speed but also his route running. Be well Brandin.

                    As we've seen with other players in this situation, he needs to shut it down and potentially take a year off. He has had waaaaaaay too many concussions over the years. At this time (as a former medical professional), he needs to consider retirement as his brain is damaged which is why he continues to collect them so easily. This issues usually does not improve.

                      WR: outside the box thought
                      by Richbert88
                      Whose satisfied with the current group of WRs?

                      I am hearing our guys are having problems getting seperation and holding onto the ball.

                      Here is a <bizarre> thought for the future, possible a little sooner.

                      DX and Onobun as WRs. At 6-5, with excellent hands, seperation wouldn't be a problem. What seperation you can't get in the x,y plane you can easily attain in the z plane <vertical>.

                      I understand the limitations on both. Inexperience. And for DX, his knees.

                      But lets ponder this together. Who has two really big CBs to cover these guys? Are they going to be pressed and bumped? I would find it hard to imagine a CB being more physical in press than Onobun. The guy is too big and strong. His biggest obstacle, as I have an understanding, is his blocking. Put him wide and let him do the WR blocking on running plays. Fendi ran a 4.45 and a 4.5 during his pro day. He is fast enough. DX also looks to have some skills and unussual size.

                      Put Amendola & Gillyard in the slot, Hoomanawanui, Fells & Baj in at TE. SJ would see some big bodies down field while running.

                      Why not?

                      WR depth
                      by RamBamThankYouMam
                      With the departures of Amendola and Gibson the Rams are currently without much depth at the WR postion. Obviously, the signing of Jared Cook helps that situation because of his versatility while lining up. Still, the Rams do need to add atleast two more receivers to the roster.

                      I would imagine that the Rams will use one of their top three picks on a WR. That would add another body with talent to the equation, but it would also add a lot more inexperience to an already young bunch. Where do you see the Rams going with their last WR roster spot? Do you think they will fill it with more inexperience, like Nick Johnson or another draft pick? How about a veteran like Devery Henderson or Kevin Walter? Or do you think the Rams go somewhere in between like a Darrius Heyward-Bey or Donald Jones?

                      Personally, I would prefer the Rams to go after someone like Heyward-Bey. He adds some nice talent to mix while adding a little bit of experience. I would be ok with guys like Henderson, Walter, or Stokely just to add a veteran into the fold, but I don't think they would add much beyond that. Not to say that veteran leadership among a young group of receivers can be discounted. What do you guys think?

                      Looking for help at WR
                      by Rambos
                      We are down to just three WR on the roster. With our cap situation being what it is, looks like an elite WR is unlike, not out of the question.

                      How about Jeremy Maclinm this guy has been mentioned as a possible pick up this off season. First he is not a free agent so it would be via trade. Second he is not a true number one but his numbers over four years are better then anyone we have had.

                      He's only 24 so he is in his prime. He's from Missouri born and raised, went to Missouri, so he has ties.

                      His number are not great but then again they are not bad either. Jeremy Maclin Stats - Philadelphia Eagles - ESPN

                      The Eagles have been rumored to be shopping him, not sure what they want for him. He is in his last year and his salary is $2.853 million. If we could do a sign and trade that would keep him for more then one year, would you consider him? Even of they could not get a long term deal we might want to take a shot, if he does not cost to much in trade value.

                      This would give us another young WR and we still could sign Danny and even draft another WR. I think he has a much higher ceiling then Gibby....

                      RFE's Ranking of "Receiver" Prospects
                      by AvengerRam
                      So, I know what you're thinking... why the quotation marks?

                      Well, this is not a ranking of WRs. Rather, its ranking of receivers at any position that I believe would enhance the Rams' passing game. The position is secondary, in my opinion.

                      It is also my opinion that the Rams' top draft priority is to obtain a receiver. While there is a bigger hole at C, I don't think that selecting a C (there is not an elite prospect at the position in this draft) at No. 37 is the best use of the pick.

                      So, this ranking is not too far off from my overall draft board.

                      With all that said, here is my ranking of the receiver prospects (for the Rams) in the 2017 draft:

                      1. Mike Williams, WR, Clemson (6'3, 218)

                      2. Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan (6'3, 209)

                      3. O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama (6'6, 251)

                      4. John Ross, WR, Washington (5'11, 188)

                      5. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford (5'11, 202)

                      6. David Njoku, TE, Miami (6'4, 246)

                      7. Evan Engram, TE/WR, Mississippi (6'3, 234)

                      8. Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State (6'1, 209)

                      9. Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington (6'2, 204)

                      10. Gerald Everett, TE, South Alabama (6'3, 239)

                      11. JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC (6'1, 215)

                      12. Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina (6'2, 201)

                      13. Bucky Hodges, TE, Virginia Tech (6'6, 257)

                      14. Taywan Taylor, WR, Western Kentucky (5'11, 203)

                      15. Carlos Henderson, WR, Louisiana Tech (5'11, 199)


                      Others: Amara Darboh, WR, Michigan; Chad Hansen, WR, California; Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland; Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech; Ardarius Stewart, WR, Alabama; Curtis Samuel, WR/RB, Ohio State; Jake Butt, TE, Michigan*

                      Robert Woods and JuJu Smith-Schuster
                      by Rambos
                      With one week to go Iím starting to look for any edge that can be found in this draft. One that canít be understated is having a certain amount comfort with the team that drafts you as a rookie.

                      JuJu Smith could find plenty of home cooking with the Los Angeles Rams. Local kid from Long Beach will be staying home to play pro ball. Familiar surrounding canít hurt, especially when it comes the stadium remaining the same.

                      Robert Woods former alum and a mentor in the waiting. That seems like a perfect fit having Woods take Smith under his wing and get him up to speed.

                      Like how Ju Ju clearly pointed out whom Robert beats in the film, Richard Sherman. "Who'ís that"Ö we need some swagger on the outside.
