Johnson, Trumaine (CB)

Posted March 22, 2013 @ 3:41 p.m.
Johnson was arrested on a misdemeanor driving under the influence charge in Missoula, where he played college football for the University of Montana.
Missoula County jail records indicate Johnson was booked into jail at 3:05 a.m. Friday and released about an hour later after posting a $700 bond. He was scheduled to make an initial appearance in Municipal Court sometime Friday. Police Detective Travis Welsh tells KECI-TV that Johnson was pulled over shortly after 2 a.m. for driving without his headlights. He refused a breath test.

Long, Jake (T)

Posted March 14, 2013 @ 12:35 p.m.
The Rams remained hopeful of adding another big piece to the offense, tackle Jake Long.
Coach Jeff Fisher said Thursday at a news conference to introduce Jared Cook that Long was still in town a day after interviewing with the team.

Cook, Jared (TE)

Posted March 14, 2013 @ 12:34 p.m.
Cook's familiarity with coach Jeff Fisher made the free agent tight end a natural fit with the St. Louis Rams.
The 6-foot-5, 248-pound Cook, who got a five-year, $35.1 million contract, played his first two seasons in Tennessee under Fisher.

Cook, Jared (TE)

Posted March 12, 2013 @ 8:06 p.m.
The St. Louis Rams have upgraded their offense by reaching a five-year deal with Cook.
The team said on its website Tuesday night that the Rams outbid Miami for the 25-year-old Cook, who played for St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher in Tennessee. The Titans drafted Cook in the third round in 2009.

Kendricks, Lance (TE)

Posted Dec. 24, 2012 @ 10:46 a.m.
Kendricks finished with four receptions for 119 yards in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Bucs.
Kendricks scored for the second straight game, collecting an 80-yard pass from Josh Freeman.

Bradford, Sam (QB)

Posted Dec. 24, 2012 @ 10:45 a.m.
Bradford completed 13 of 27 passes for 196 yards, one interception and no sacks in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Bucs.
The no sacks ended a stretch in which the St. Louis quarterback was sacked in a league-high 30 consecutive games. His next game at Seattle figures to be difficult so fantasy owners probably want to bench him, if possible.

Bradford, Sam (QB)

Posted Dec. 17, 2012 @ 3:46 p.m.
Bradford went 35 of 55 for a career-high 377 yards while matching another career high with three touchdowns on Sunday against the Vikings.
Bradford has an 83.3 passer rating this season, the best of his three-year career.

Cook, Jared (TE)

Posted Dec. 10, 2012 @ 5:13 p.m.
Cook has a torn right rotator cuff and coach Mike Munchak says Cook will be placed on injured reserve for the final three games. Cook caught an 18-yard touchdown pass on the opening drive in Sunday's 27-23 loss to Indianapolis. But he hurt his shoulder catching a screen pass late in the third quarter.
The tight end ranks second with 44 catches and has 523 yards receiving. He will become the 15th player on injured reserve, and Munchak called it unfortunate. Cook says the season-ending injury is a tough blow. He was honored Monday as the Titans' community man of the year for raising money for breast cancer research and exams in honor of his mother, Yulinda, a breast cancer survivor.

Givens, Chris (WR)

Posted Dec. 03, 2012 @ 4:32 p.m.
Givens caught a season-best 11 passes for 92 yards in Sunday's overtime victory against San Francisco.
The rookie's value seems to be only increasing as the fantasy season enters the stretch run. He's been targeted 27 times in the Rams' last three games.

Long, Jake (T)

Posted Dec. 02, 2012 @ 1:29 p.m.
Long was placed on injured reserve Tuesday by the Miami Dolphins because of a left triceps injury, ending his season and perhaps his tenure with the team.
The perennial Pro Bowl pick and No. 1 overall choice in the 2008 draft was hurt in Sunday's loss to New England. Long might have played his final game for Miami because he can become an unrestricted free agent this winter. Long would receive $15.4 million next year if the Dolphins give him a franchise tag, and that's likely more than Miami will be willing to spend. He has battled injuries for much of his career and had a disappointing season.
