DT Brockers ready to return for Rams (Yahoo Sports) [Yahoo! Sports: August 21, 2014, 11:59 pm]
Michael Brockers doesn't know all the technical jargon for what kept him out of much of training camp. The third-year defensive tackle suffered a high right ankle sprain in early August just prior to the St. Louis Rams first scrimmage Aug. 2. ''Maybe get all the first quarter reps maybe, and try to show what I can do and show that I can push off this ankle and put as much pressure as I can on it and be as dominant as I want to be.'' Rams coach Jeff Fisher said after Thursday's practice that Brockers likely will get more work because of the team's depth at the position. Aaron Donald, the 13th-overall pick in the 2014 draft, is slotted as the No. 2 right tackle behind Brockers.

Mays, who was expected to start alongside Derrick Johnson at inside linebacker, will likely have the procedure later this week, according to a person familiar with the situation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team had not revealed the surgery. Mays signed a $6 million, two-year contract with the Chiefs in the offseason, and he was being counted on to replace the departed Akeem Jordan. Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles returned to practice Thursday after missing a week with a foot injury, though he is not expected to play against Minnesota.
