Moves to IR

Long (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Long was already reportedly set for season-ending MCL surgery, so this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. The Boston College product's third NFL season will come to a close with just four games played and no catches or targets. He'll now focus on his recovery and returning healthy in 2024.

Done for season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-11

Long will require season-ending MCL surgery, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic and Adam Grosbard of The Orange County Register report.

Long was carted to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Ravens, and he'll be out for the rest of the season, which further taxes a Rams tight end corps that was also without Tyler Higbee (neck) in Week 14. For now, Davis Allen -- who caught four of five targets for 50 yards and a touchdown versus Baltimore -- and Brycen Hopkins are the team's healthiest options at the position.

Carted to locker room

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Long (knee) was carted to the locker room and is considered doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Long appears to have sustained a signficiant knee injury at some point during the first half, as his departure via a cart likely indicates he won't be available to return for the remainder of the contest. The third-year tight end appeared in just three game coming into Sunday, but his absence will now leave the Rams without their top two tight ends, as starter Tyler Higbee (neck) is already inactive. Brycen Hopkins and rookie Davis Allen will have to step up into bigger roles for the time being.

Coming off IR

The Rams activated Long from their injured reserve list Tuesday.

Long finally appears to be on track to make his 2023 debut following the Rams' bye in Week 10. When he suits up, he'll probably poach some snaps away from Brycen Hopkins.

Still not slated to return

Long (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 9 game versus Green Bay, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Long was designated to return from IR on Oct. 25, but he wasn't activated for Week 8 against Dallas despite logging a trio of full practice sessions ahead of that contest. The third-year tight end practiced in full all three days this week as well, but the Rams are opting to hold him out for another game. Los Angeles is on bye next week, so Long's next chance to suit up will be Sunday, Nov. 19 against Seattle.

Won't come off IR ahead of Week 8

Long (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Long was placed on IR with a hamstring injury in early September. The Rams designated him to return this week, and the tight end was able to log three full practice sessions. However, the team isn't yet ready to activate him. Long's next chance to make his regular-season debut with Los Angeles will come Week 9 in Green Bay.

Back at practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-25

Long (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve and logged a full practice with the Rams on Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Long was placed on IR prior to the season with a hamstring injury, but he will now have 21 days to practice with the team and be activated. If he fails to return to the active roster prior to the end of the three-week window, he'll revert to IR for the rest of the 2023 campaign. The tight end was part of the Rams' trade with the Miami in September in which they shipped off cornerback Jalen Ramsey and he appeared in nine games with the Dolphins in 2022, failing to record a catch over 90 offensive snaps.

Lands on IR

Long (thigh) was placed on injured reserve Saturday

Long had already been ruled out ahead of Sunday's contest against the Seahawks, and he'll now miss at least the next four weeks due to a thigh injury. The only player included in the Jalen Ramsey trade this offseason, Long's absence will now cede more playing time to Brycen Hopkins and Davis Allen behind starter Tyler Higbee.

Could head to injured reserve

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-08

Coach Sean McVay said Friday that Long (thigh) could be placed on injured reserve this week, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Long was part of the return from the Dolphins in the Jalen Ramsey trade, but he's been hurt ever since joining the Rams. He didn't play at all during the preseason and could be sidelined even longer. Tyler Higbee, Brycen Hopkins and Davis Allen will handle the tight end snaps for Los Angeles.
