The Rams have placed backup receiver Mike Thomas on the injured reserve. Thomas suffered a hip injury in Week 1. With Thomas and returner/backup receiver Pharoh Cooper both on IR, the Rams only have four receivers (Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Josh Reynolds) on their active roster.

Aaron Neary, a center on the Rams' practice squad, was arrested Sunday by the Simi Valley Police Department on suspicion of driving under the influence and hit and run, a police department spokesperson said. Neary blew a .17 on a breathalyzer test, twice the legal limit of .08, the spokesperson said. Neary was booked into the Ventura County Jail in Thousand Oaks. Neary was with the Rams through training camp and the preseason before he was cut. The Rams signed him to the practice squad last week. He spent most of last season on the practice squad, but started in a Week 17 game against the 49ers. Neary was an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Washington in 2016.

Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed for 42 yards and 3 touchdowns in 19 carries in a victory over the Cardinals. He also scored on two 2-point conversions. Then Gurley had a funny exchange with a reporter about his fantasy owners. Reporter: "Do you think fantasy people were happy when you were scoring on two-point conversions?" Gurley: "Does it count?" Reporter: "Yeah, some leagues I'm told." Gurley: "Hey man, my fantasy players better be happy with me. But you know, that's why I didn't want to come back in (after the cramp). I'm like, ‘My fantasy people good, we got three touchdowns, we good.'"

After a 34-0 shutout of the Arizona Cardinals, the Rams have a new fan in Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant. Perfect timing, too. Last week, the Rams defensive backs had a very lively conversation in the locker room about which NBA players could play in the NFL. And a couple DB's were convinced they could score 10 points in an NBA game. Durant just might get an invitation.

Rams no longer just the best team on paper

The Rams are proving that an offseason of hype was warranted. They look solid on both offense and defense and could be the NFL's best team.

Aqib Talib, on the Rams' new look defense and how it's come together after a 34-0 shutout of the Cardinals: "It's a great time, it's a great time... You put a bunch of alpha dogs on one defense and it's either going to be good or it's going to be terrible and this one turned out good.

Lindsey Thiry ESPN 

After a 34-0 shutout of the Cardinals, the Rams' defense has posted six consecutive scoreless quarters dating to Week 1. And while Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh aren't filling up the stat sheet, their presence has certainly been felt by opposing quarterbacks who are in a hurry to get the ball off. The challenge next week against the Chargers and Phillip Rivers will be to force turnovers, which they were unable to do Sunday.
