Rams defense will get another boost; Chris Long returns
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Rams activated defensive end Chris Long on Saturday, following a stint on the injured reserve-designated to return list after undergoing ankle surgery.
Long was hurt in the season opener. The Rams’ defense struggled early in the season and had just one sack in their first five games. However, they’ve had 21 sacks in their past six games (second-most in that span).
