Not even if one of those new starters turns out to be Jalen Ramsey, who is optimistic he will make his Rams debut at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

"I love challenges like that", Ramsey said of the Falcons. "Of course I'm still getting back into it, getting into a groove, but I felt like it went well overall".

The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded the star CB to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for several draft picks and we've got the exact trade details.

Ramsey requested a trade when he had a problem with the Jacksonville Jaguars' front office.

The Jalen Ramsey trade watch is officially over.

"I think we going to keep working, we got a couple more days to figure it out", Ramsey said. "I feel free. I feel like I can be myself".

With their backs against the wall, the Rams needed a win in the worst way Sunday. Coach Sean McVay is optimistic Gurley will play after missing last week's game. He said Ramsey "is a great ball player, hard worker and when the helmet and pads came off, he always treated folks of our city well". "Not just physically, with my back conditioning, but mentally as well". The deal comes hours after it was announced the Rams dealt cornerback Marcus Peters to the Baltimore Ravens.

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips realizes that's not the ideal way to face Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Matt Ryan and the NFL's second-most prolific passing game.

The Rams could use help from Ramsey after losing both of their starting cornerbacks and a starting safety in the past week. Give up two first-rounders and like, 'Oh, and we're going to play hardball in these negotiations'.

Ramsey played against Tennessee the following Thursday but did not practice on the ensuing Monday because of an illness.

"For the first day, it was incredible", Robey-Coleman said, nodding.

"It will be good to be able to see - hey, he's feeling good, he's feeling healthy, looks good running around".
