Kendrick recorded 49 tackles (41 solo), 10 passes defended and an interception during the 2023 regular season over 17 games played.

Kendrick was given two opportunities throughout the season to prove his worth as a starter, as he began the year starting alongside Ahkello Witherspoon and regained the role after losing it to Cobie Durant for a few weeks in the middle of the season. Kendrick wouldn't be able to hang on to the starting job on his second chance, however, and was relegated to backup duty by Week 16. Witherspoon may leave in free agency, but the Rams may elect to shore up the position in the offseason, jeopardizing Kendrick's chances of increasing his playing time for a third consecutive season.

Kendrick (hamstring) was not included on the Rams' injury report Wednesday, Adam Grosbard of The Orange County Register reports.

Kendrick appears to be ready to go ahead of the 2023 season after he'd been nursing a hamstring injury the last couple weeks. The cornerback is expected to start in the Rams' secondary this year after compiling 43 tackles and four pass deflections over 15 games during his rookie campaign in 2022.

Returning to practice

Kendrick (hamstring) is expected to return to practice this week, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Kendrick has been dealing with an injured hamstring since training camp but now seems to be close to returning. The 2022 sixth-round pick should see solid playing time this season and could even compete for a starting role in what's become a thin position group following Jalen Ramsey's departure.

Missing time with hamstring injury

Kendrick (hamstring) has been absent from practices, The Athletic's Jourdan Rodrigue reports.

Coach Sean McVay said Kendrick is "making good progress," per Rodrigue, but a timetable for return is unclear. In a Jalen Ramsey-less cornerback room, Kendrick is competing for a starting job this summer. A sixth-round pick last year, Kendrick appeared in 15 games as a rookie, making six starts and playing 50 percent of the defensive snaps.
