We are currently focused on Everson’s well-being and providing the appropriate support for him and his family.”

In Sunday’s victory over the Chargers, the Rams lost Talib, Marcus Peters (calf) and Andrew Whitworth to injury. The biggest thing here is that Marcus Peters calf injury is not serious and could play Sunday. With Talib likely out for some time, the Rams will turn to veteran Sam Shields and Nickell Robey-Coleman in his absence.
