Head coach Jeff Fisher’s comments on St. Louis Rams safety are concerning

Earlier today I wrote about how safety T.J. McDonald’s play in the second half of the 2014 season was an encouraging sign of improvement for the St. Louis Rams secondary. Naturally, a few hours later, we learn that he’s hurt and apparently has suffered through some kind of ordeal. That’s how head coach Jeff Fisher described it, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post...

This stat about the St. Louis Rams secondary is an encouraging sign

The St. Louis Rams have perhaps the most vicious defensive front in the National Football League. If they could only get their act together in the secondary, they might just have the best overall defense in the league some day. While the Rams’ front four excels at getting pressure on opposing quarterbacks and stuffing the run, the team often runs into trouble when their corners...

T.J. McDonald has been an important part of the St. Louis Rams’ improved defense

As I covered in my Friday column, the Rams’ defensive line turned a major corner after their ugly Week 6 Monday Night Football at home to the 49ers. Still, the secondary seemed to have issues, as Seattle and Kansas City had no issue moving the ball down the field during the Rams’ next two games, which the team split. After seven games, the Rams sat at 2-5, and their disappointing...

Rams' McDonald playing as well as any safety in the league

ST. LOUIS -- Through all of the changes in the Rams' young secondary, one constant has been there to maintain stability. Strong safety T.J. McDonald may be only a year removed from his rookie season, but he's become something like the veteran leader of a group coach Jeff Fisher says continues to evolve through injuries, trades and shifting roles. As one of just two defensive backs...

Rams safety McDonald held out with concussion

ST. LOUIS (AP) St. Louis Rams safety T.J. McDonald did not practice due to concussion-like symptoms. McDonald's presence was a bit of a surprise on the injury report Wednesday, given coach Jeff Fisher made no mention of it and McDonald played every snap in last week's victory over Seattle. Several other starters were held out. Defensive end William Hayes (illness), wide receiver...

WATCH: St. Louis Rams Safety T.J. McDonald Crushes 49ers RB Frank Gore

Not much has gone right for the St. Louis Rams in the second half of Monday night's game against the 49ers yet somehow they are only down by 10 a few minutes in to the fourth quarter. That is due in large part to the work of guys like safety T.J. McDonald and the the rest of the Rams defense.Take this play for example. Normally when Frank Gore meets a defender in the hole its the...

McDonald puts personal stamp on Rams' first win

ST. LOUIS -- T.J. McDonald remembers Mike Evans moaning on the turf after the game-ending hit in the St. Louis Rams' first victory of the season. The second-year safety also will remember it as the biggest play on an unforgettable day. Besides making the play that led to a 10-second runoff that cleared the clock and prevented a winning field-goal attempt in a 19-17 victory at Tampa...
