LOS ANGELES (AP) — Even Aaron Donald is not immune to the injury bug that has consumed the Los Angeles Rams' season.
The seven-time All-Pro defensive tackle sprained his ankle Sunday in Los Angeles' fifth consecutive loss, coach Sean McVay said Monday.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Sean McVay took a frightening blow to the face from his own player in the opening minutes of Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, leaving the Los Angeles Rams coach wiggling his jaw to make sure it still worked properly.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Rams wide receiver Allen Robinson II will have surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot and miss the rest of the season, Los Angeles coach Sean McVay said after Sunday's 26-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs were oh-so close to playing in the Super Bowl in February.
On Sunday, they'll get to face each other under far different circumstances at Arrowhead Stadium.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Quarterback Matthew Stafford will miss his second game in three weeks for the Los Angeles Rams after going back into the NFL's concussion protocol.
Sean McVay confirmed Stafford will sit out when the Rams (3-7) visit the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, but the coach said his Super Bowl-winning quarterback doesn't necessarily have a concussion.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville claimed veteran running back Darrell Henderson off waivers from the Los Angeles Rams on Wednesday, giving the Jaguars more experience behind starter Travis Etienne.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The struggling Los Angeles Rams waived veteran running back Darrell Henderson and linebacker Justin Hollins on Tuesday, abruptly cutting ties with two regular starters.
Los Angeles (3-7) has lost four straight games for the first time in coach Sean McVay's tenure, and the moves indicate younger players will get a chance to play more down the stretch for the defending Super Bowl champions.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams' dismal season just keeps getting worse, and Matthew Stafford's latest injury suggests it's unlikely to get much better.
The Rams' 27-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints sent them into their first four-game losing streak since their homecoming season in 2016.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — An already disappointing season for Matthew Stafford and Los Angeles Rams could be getting worse.
Now tied for the worst 10-game record of any defending Super Bowl champion, the Rams (3-7) lost Stafford to what was feared to be a second concussion in three weeks during a 27-20 defeat in New Orleans that extended their losing steak to four games.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Matthew Stafford has been cleared to return to the Los Angeles Rams' lineup Sunday after a one-game absence.
The Super Bowl-winning quarterback will play in New Orleans against the Saints, coach Sean McVay said Friday.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The defending champion Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints have been on parallel paths this season.
Both have been disappointments, are multiple games below .500 and urgently need a victory as they meet in the Superdome on Sunday.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Quarterback Matthew Stafford is expected to play for the Los Angeles Rams this weekend after missing one game in the NFL's concussion protocol.
Stafford participated fully in practice with the Rams on Wednesday, and the Super Bowl-winning veteran is on track to come out of the protocol in time to face the Saints in New Orleans on Sunday, coach Sean McVay said.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Rams receiver Cooper Kupp will have surgery on his sprained right ankle, sidelining the Super Bowl MVP for at least the next four weeks while on injured reserve.
Starting left tackle Alaric Jackson will miss the rest of the year because of blood clots, and starting right guard Chandler Brewer will be out four to six weeks after knee surgery, coach Sean McVay said Tuesday while revealing the latest injury setbacks to the defending champions' dismal season.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Nine games and exactly nine months after winning the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium, the Los Angeles Rams found themselves in a new position in their home arena Sunday.
Matthew Stafford is questionable for the Los Angeles Rams' home game against Arizona while working through the NFL's concussion protocol.
The quarterback has been “making good progress and steady progression” since being placed in the protocol Tuesday, Rams coach Sean McVay said Friday.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Aaron Donald and the Los Angeles Rams are only eight games removed from their Super Bowl victory. The Arizona Cardinals are just nine games removed from an 11-win season and a playoff appearance.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is in the concussion protocol, and coach Sean McVay is uncertain whether the Super Bowl winner will be ready to play Sunday against Arizona.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams' post-Super Bowl malaise is lasting longer and getting uglier than most people expected.
The Rams are 3-5 near the midway point of their season after blowing a late lead and taking an unsightly 16-13 defeat at Tampa Bay, their fourth loss in five games.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tom Brady put together another last-minute drive to hand the Los Angeles Rams a crushing defeat.
But Rams coach Sean McVay and quarterback Matthew Stafford put the blame for Sunday's 16-13 loss on the Rams' offense, which hardly resembles the unit that led LA to a Super Bowl title last season.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Amid Sean McVay's countless messages of condolences from friends, co-workers and family after the death of his grandfather, the Los Angeles Rams coach said one text from a friend crystallized the way he intends to remember John McVay.
John McVay, the executive who helped launch the San Francisco 49ers dynasty and grandfather of Rams coach Sean McVay, has died. He was 91.
The 49ers announced Tuesday that McVay had died. They did not give a cause of death.
Christian McCaffrey already played his first game with the San Francisco 49ers. Robert Quinn and James Robinson joined their new teams this week. More players will be on the move by Tuesday.
The NFL trade deadline is far more exciting than it used to be.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams are used to making the NFL's boldest moves and getting the big-name players they want.
So when the defending Super Bowl champions were outbid for Christian McCaffrey last week, the experience was a bit unfamiliar for Sean McVay.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams' injury luck had been largely excellent during the first five years of coach Sean McVay's career.
His sixth season has been a prolonged test of the Rams' ability to persevere through a run of poor health at key positions.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Running back Cam Akers will not play for the Los Angeles Rams against Carolina on Sunday after missing two days of practice this week for what coach Sean McVay called personal reasons.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams have not given up on re-signing Odell Beckham Jr., even if the injured receiver was decidedly unimpressed by their initial attempts to do so.
Rams coach Sean McVay responded confidently to questions Wednesday about tweets from Beckham regarding his early contract negotiations with Los Angeles.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams have the least productive rushing offense in the NFL. No quarterback in the league has been sacked or pressured more times than Matthew Stafford.
Nobody needs advanced analytics to determine that the Super Bowl champions' offensive line is failing.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Sean McVay isn't concerned about the way Matthew Stafford is leading the Los Angeles Rams' offense.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Perhaps it's a positive measure of the Los Angeles Rams' achievements over the previous half-decade when their fan base is panicking after a 2-2 start with losses to two Super Bowl-contending opponents.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Deebo Samuel turned a short catch into an electric 57-yard touchdown, Talanoa Hufanga returned an interception for a score and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Los Angeles Rams 24-9.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams efficiently moved the ball down the field on the opening drive before a sack stalled them and led to a field goal.
That set the tone for the night for the Rams, who struggled to move the ball consistently and failed to finish off the few drives when they did.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The play-calling head coaches get lots of the attention around the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers.
But the success that Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan have had as coaches in Los Angeles and San Francisco has had as much to do with the play of their defenses.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Rams left guard David Edwards will miss Los Angeles' game at San Francisco on Monday night after reporting possible symptoms of a concussion.
Rams coach Sean McVay said that Edwards “said he was a little bit foggy” after individual drills at practice Saturday.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — At 6-foot-3 and a slim 224 pounds or so, Ben Skowronek looks like an NFL player.
He just doesn't look much like a fullback.
That's because he's a receiver playing an unlikely role these days for Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The stakes will be far lower when the Los Angeles Rams visit the San Francisco 49ers for the third meeting between the teams this calendar year.
The intensity is always high when these NFC West rivals meet.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams almost certainly wouldn't be such consistent winners if this team hadn't stayed relatively healthy over the past half-decade.
The Rams' overall health is much worse than normal this September after a spate of early season injuries, yet it hasn't stopped Sean McVay's team from recording back-to-back victories.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams defense survived quite an onslaught on Sunday afternoon, defending 58 passing plays from Arizona's Kyler Murray, who is notoriously hard to defend because of his ability to throw and run.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams have placed receiver Van Jefferson on the injured list during his recovery from knee surgery, opening a roster spot to sign defensive back Grant Haley from the practice squad.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Sean McVay has seen plenty of Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray over the previous three seasons.
But Murray’s improbable escape act as part of the comeback win at Las Vegas, darting back and forth across the field for 20 seconds before scampering into the end zone, reminded the Los Angeles Rams coach just how special he can be.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Whether carrying the ball or making a lightning-fast recovery from a torn Achilles tendon, Cam Akers' brief NFL career has been all about getting places in a hurry.
So when Los Angeles Rams coach Sean McVay said last week that he wanted more urgency from his top running back, the football world was surprised — and so was Akers, it turns out.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Rams' honeymoon from their Super Bowl championship didn't even last until the first Sunday of the next regular season.
Their 31-10 thrashing from the Buffalo Bills on Thursday night was a brutal reminder that last season's title — and even the last half-decade of success under Sean McVay — guarantees the Rams nothing in a new year.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Sean McVay knows that one of the prices of longevity in the NFL is that eventually he's going to experience a lot of good and bad things as a coach.
He hasn't had too many bad experiences, but Thursday night was definitely one of them.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay and general manager Les Snead have agreed to contract extensions through the 2026 season, keeping the defending Super Bowl champions' brain trust in place with lucrative new deals.
INGLEWOOD, Calif. (AP) — For nearly seven months, Sean McVay has told the Los Angeles Rams their Super Bowl championship guarantees them nothing in this new season except a banner.
“It feels like it was a long time ago,” said McVay, the youngest coach in NFL history to win it all.
DENVER (AP) — The Denver Broncos didn't circle their season opener on their calendar even though it's Russell Wilson's homecoming at Seattle.
Had they emphasized their $296 million man 's return to the city where he spent a decade, bringing the Seahawks their only Super Bowl title, the Broncos wouldn't have kept him on the sideline with their other starters in the preseason.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Matthew Stafford understands why the football world is still talking about his elbow.
After all, he followed up the Los Angeles Rams' Super Bowl victory by not throwing passes in any offseason workouts, participating sparingly in training camp and sitting out all three preseason games — all to avoid aggravating the elbow condition that coach Sean McVay called “a little bit abnormal for a quarterback."
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Tutu Atwell didn't get to play for the Los Angeles Rams during the preseason, and that's how he knows his second NFL season is off to an excellent start.
Coach Sean McVay shows his disdain for the injury risks in the NFL's exhibition schedule by refusing to suit up practically any player he expects to make a significant contribution during the regular season.
Aaron Donald downplayed swinging a helmet at Cincinnati Bengals players in a brawl at a joint practice between last season’s Super Bowl teams last Thursday.
“It was just a practice. It was football,” Donald said Wednesday in an interview for an upcoming episode of the AP Pro Football Podcast.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sean McVay became the youngest head coach in modern NFL history in part because he's an excellent communicator and teacher who always seems to know what to say.
McVay is now the youngest coach in NFL history to win a Super Bowl, and he's already presenting the challenges of the upcoming season to his Rams in clear, concise terms.
LOS ANGELES RAMS (16-5)
