The Los Angeles Rams moved Dominique Easley

    during training camp partly with the hope of minimizing the risks to his frequently injured knees.It didn't work.Easley underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee Monday http://www.ramsfootballauthentics.com/todd-gurley-ii-jersey-authentic ;, his fourth major knee surgery since 2011.Rams coach Sean McVay expects Easley will be placed on injured reserve. With cornerback Aqib Talib and return specialist Pharoh Cooper likely to be activated off injured reserve later this season, the designation would almost certainly end Easley's fourth season in the league and second season with the Rams.Easley sustained his latest knee injury in the Rams' 35-23 win over the Chargers in Week 3. He had four tackles in three games this season after missing the entire 2017 season because of a torn ACL in his right knee that he sustained in training camp last year."It's kind of a matter of time before something happens," outside linebacker Matt Longacre said. "I had back surgery. Everybody here has had something. There's just nothing you can do about it."Easley's history of knee injuries dates back to his college career at Florida. He tore the ACL in his left knee as a sophomore in 2011, and sustained a torn ACL and meniscus in his right knee as a senior in 2013 but was still drafted 29th overall in the first round by New England in 2014."This poor guy, I couldn't be more impressed with just the toughness, how resilient he has been fighting through so many different things with this knee," McVay said. "Really, it's upsetting because of how many things he has had to go through and what a great job he has done persevering to even get to the point where he is playing this year."The Rams had been dealing with limited depth and experience at edge rusher, and the loss of Easley will put rookie defensive end John Franklin-Myers and linebacker Trevon Young in line for larger roles. Easley, who has 6 1/2 sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception in 41 career games, moved to linebacker after projected starter Morgan Fox sustained a knee injury during organized team activities in May.Franklin-Myers recorded his first career sack against Minnesota last Thursday, stripping Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth quarter to secure the Rams' 38-31 win. A fourth-round draft pick from Setphen F. Austin, he played 47 percent of the defensive sacks against Minnesota and showed an ability to create pressure."That's what he has shown in practice," said Longacre, who had been rotating with Easley. "I think he led the team in sacks when we charted 'em in camp, so we know what he can do and it's starting to click for him."Young was active for the first time against Minnesota with Easley out. Though Young did not record a tackle, Longacre has been impressed with the progress shown by the sixth-round draft pick from Louisville."He caught some of those later reps in games and stuff like that, but he played really well. We're obviously going to lean on him now, too," Longacre said. "It's nice to where the two guys that are going to have those big roles, we got the utmost confidence in them."The Rams could also find different ways to use their starting defensive line of Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh and Michael Brockers. Suh played defensive end next to Donald during obvious passing situations in the fourth quarter against Minnesota, an alignment that helped him get his first sack."I enjoy being able to be moved around," Suh said. "Being able to play end, tackle, nose, anything I'm asked to do. I'll stand up in a linebacker position if I can, which I have done before http://www.ramsfootballauthentics.com/cooper-kupp-jersey-authentic ;, but whatever they need of me I'm happy to do."NOTES: K Greg Zuerlein (groin) went through a workout Sunday. McVay said there is a possibility Zuerlein could be available to play at Seattle on Sunday. . LG Rodger Saffold, TE Tyler Higbee (knee) and CB Marcus Peters (calf) did not participate in practice Monday.Which Los Angeles Rams will still be on the roster when the new stadium opens in 2020? Last week, I emerged from a cloud of indecision and finally decided to bite the bullet and reserve a seat at the Los Angeles Rams’ new stadium in Inglewood for 2020. Ever since my purchase, at least once a day I catch myself gazing at my pdf of the simulated view from my future seat as I drool. During one of these hypnotic drool sessions, I got to wondering which current Rams will most likely be there to take the field on opening day in 2020. Obviously the Rams’ top draft picks over the next two seasons will be there, but which players from this season’s powerhouse will most likely still be around? Keep in mind, this is not a list based on talent alone. Existing (and reasonable) contracts rank a player higher and more likely to be around long-term. Also, the Rams have displayed a tendency to prioritize protecting QB Jared Goff, and providing him with weapons, over positions in places like the secondary. And will the Rams find cap space to retain talented players like DL Michael Brockers, LG Rodger Saffold or LB Cory Littleton when they hit the open market?Top 20 Rams most likely to still be on the team when the new stadium opens (2020)1.) QB Jared GoffBarring some catastrophe, Goff will spend the majority of career in Inglewood. In 2020, if the Rams haven’t already worked out an extension, the club can exercise Goff’s fifth-year option, which would pay him the average of the Top 10 quarterbacks at that time.2) DL Aaron DonaldDonald will be right in the thick of his freshly signed extension in 2020, and will still be in his prime. If the Rams ever did part ways with Problem 99, it wouldn’t be until at least 2022, but then again, why would they do that? 3) RB Todd GurleyYes, running backs have a shelf life but Gurley is such a key element in the Rams attack. He’s becoming just the type of transcendent star to help make the Stan Canyon what the Forum once was, during the Showtime Lakers era. Of course, things can change quickly in the NFL, but Gurley’s new deal makes it seem very likely he’ll be around until at least 2021 or 2022. 4) WR Cooper KuppStill playing out his rookie deal at a modest $1.19m in 2020, Kupp will be a Ram, and Jared Goff will feel happy.5) WR Brandin CooksThe Rams have an out in 2021 if they want it, but until then they are married to Cooks, and so far the marriage has been wonderful.6) P Johnny HekkerCurrently locked in until 2022, Hekker will be probably still be a Ram in the year 2035. Heck, if not for the dead money that some of the bulkier deals would present Womens Greg Zuerlein Jersey , he might be at the top of this list.7) WR Robert WoodsSet to make $7.17m, Woods is a major bargain for the team, especially when looking at other deals that receivers have been getting lately. There wouldn’t be a ton of dead money if Woods and Rams did part ways, but it seems unlikely that will happen any time soon.8) S John Johnson IIIJohnson will be on the final year of his rookie deal, playing for just under a million dollars. The question will be what happens with Johnson in 2021?9) OL Joseph NoteboomNoteboom will likely have gained a starting position on the Rams offensive line by 2020, and will still be playing on his rookie deal.10) RT Rob HavensteinThe team could move on from Big Rob by 2020 should he flounder, but most likely he will represent a fair deal and some continuity for the Rams line.11) CB Nickell Robey-ColemanRobey-Coleman will be set to make $4.5m in 2020, and with Aqib Talib, and possibly Sam Shields moving on by then, there will be plenty of motivation to keep NRC in the mix.12) CB Marcus PetersPeters likely figures into the Rams long-term plans, but so far his audition has been slowed a by a calf strain.13) OL Austin BlytheBlythe has been impressive this season, and will still be under his rookie contract next year. It seems like the Rams would lean toward retaining the young guard, as they also consider their options regarding upcoming free agents Jamon Brown and/or Rodger Saffold.14) DL John Franklin-MyersFranklin-Myers has looked solid so far in his rookie season. Still playing under his rookie deal, and with Suh (and possibly Brockers) departing by 2020, JFM will still be a Ram.15) LG Rodger Saffold IIISaffold has become an elder-statesmen in the locker room, who remembers the lean years. He has also become a heck of a player. If his health continues to hold up, he could earn a nice paycheck after this season as he enters free agency. Saff has indicated that he may be willing to take a slight shave to remain part of what has become a special team. Hopefully common ground can be found to retain Saffold.16) LS Jake McQuaideOf course McQuide will be there, Coach Bones wouldn’t have it any other way. The Pro Bowl long snapper is due $975k in 2020.17) DL Michael BrockersBrockers is a key element in the Rams defense, and it would be painful to lose his services at any point. When he becomes a free agent in 2020, it seems likely that he’ll receive some healthy offers. Will the Rams be able to clear enough space to keep Brockers next to Donald?18) S Marqui ChristianIf the Rams end up moving on from safety LaMarcus Joyner as they’ve done with other secondary studs like Rodney McLeod, Trumaine Johnson, and Janoris Jenkins in the past; Christian is a piece they’d like to keep. His rookie deal will be up in 2019.19) EDGE Samson EbukamEbukam is doing a pretty good job so far this year, and is likely stick around for the remainder of his rookie deal, which runs through 2020. However, Ebukam is currently on a pace to complete the season with only four sacks. If that ends up being the case, it doesn’t seem like a stretch to think the Rams may end up going in a completely different direction on the edge.20) TE Gerald EverettStill on his rookie deal in 2020, maybe Everett will have become a solid contributor by then. We can always hope right?*I totally wanted to write the name Andrew Whitworth on this list, but we’ll see how he feels after a couple more seasons. Health!

    The information here seems good, but I don't like the composition. Currently, I want to know more about theMovers in Christchurch, so if anyone can share information about this company with me, I'd appreciate it a lot.
