Rams head coach introduces new defensive coordinator
Longtime NFL Coach Gregg Williams has been hired as the Rams’ defensive coordinator, the team announced today.
Coach Jeff Fisher: “We’re closing the gap.”
Injury means Rodger Saffold will start at left tackle for final game with Seattle.
The St. Louis Rams are no longer “The Greatest Show on Turf”. In fact, the team’s victory over the visiting New Orleans Saints was the polar opposite of the formula used in the early 2000’s, where a high-powered offense ruled the day. The current Rams are quickly creating an identity as a defensive juggernaut, something that has to please head coach Jeff Fisher.
Dahl practiced on Wednesday, but had to sit out on Thursday, while neither Austin nor Jenkins has practiced any this week.
Rams’ first-round draft pick made an electrifying 56-yard run that set up St. Louis’ lone touchdown on Sunday, but suffered an ankle injury on the play and missed the rest of the game.
Dahl has been out since October with a knee injury, and Long missed the second half of last Sunday’s game with a concussion. Both were able to participate in Thursday evening’s practice at Rams Park.
