Rams’ New O-line is Struggling to Jell –Latsch

By Nate Latsch 

ST. LOUIS — It’s no secret that the St. Louis Rams want to run the ball this season, but their renovated starting offensive line has yet to come together through their first two preseason games.

The Rams’ starting unit has produced just three points in their six series of work in preseason losses to the Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans. They will go into this Saturday night’s game against the visiting Indianapolis Colts looking to show improvement.

“We want to do well and we want to clean up a lot of mistakes we’ve made,” Barrett Jones said. “We feel like we’ve shot ourselves in the foot too many times — too many penalties and mental errors. But at the same time we’re not putting too much pressure on it. We know we’ve still got time to fix everything that we’ve done wrong, so we’re excited about it. We’re looking forward to hopefully getting out there and putting up a good showing.”

Rams’ Barrett Jones Listed as one of 25 ‘Breakout Prospects’ –Wagoner

By Nick Wagoner

EARTH CITY, Mo. — St. Louis Rams offensive lineman Barrett Jones hasn’t started a game in his two injury-marred NFL seasons. He hasn’t even won the starting center job in the team’s three-way competition in this training camp.

But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t expectations for him. Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders offered his list of 25 possible breakout prospects on Wednesday and the only member of the Rams to make the list was Jones.

The criteria to make the list included certain restrictions, such as the player had to be drafted in the third round or later, entered the league between 2012 and 2014, started fewer than five games, is 26 or younger and has not already signed a contract extension.

Rams Lineman Demetrius Rhaney Getting Work at Guard –Wagoner

By Nick Wagoner
EARTH CITY, Mo. — As one third of the competition for the St. Louis Rams’ center job, Demetrius Rhaney has spent most of his days with the team in the middle of the offensive line.

But with starting left guard Rodger Saffold sitting out because of a shoulder injury, Rhaney has been expanding his horizons in recent days. Rhaney has spent most of this week at left guard with the starting unit.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Rhaney has handled the transition without much of a problem.

“He’s done well,” Fisher said. “The guard position, in his defense, is a little easier. There’s a lot of thinking that’s going on in that center spot and he’s handling that very well, but at the guard position you just line up and play. He’s done a good job there for us.”
