Rams LB Mark Barron expected to play vs. Seahawks
Los Angeles Rams linebacker Mark Barron hasn’t played yet this season, but he might make is 2018 debut against the Seattle Seahawks this week. Barron is entering his fifth year with the Rams. He spent his first three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This two-time BCS national champion hopes to help his Rams make a Super Bowl appearance this year.
“We’ve kind of got a plan in place where we’re anticipating him being able to go. And that’s subject to change based on how he responds. But he’s feeling good up to this point,” head coach Sean McVay told the team’s official website. “We’re hopeful to be able to get him back and if that’s the case we’ll be excited to get Mark out there.”
Barron had 86 tackles, a sack and three interceptions last season. He’s ready to get back on the field and compete right away.
“It’s good just to get out there and get that work in, get out there and move around a little bit — felt pretty good today,” Barron said on Wednesday. “So, it’s good to be back out there.”
The Rams have more yards from scrimmage than any team in the NFL. They also have the second-ranked scoring average. They also boast a fifth-ranked defense, making them a well-rounded squad.
With Mark Barron at 100 percent, the Rams have potential to get even better. Having him work the inside alongside their talented pass-rushers will be a scary sight. The Seahawks will have their hands full on Sunday.
