  • Rams' Travin Howard: Shut down for season

    Head coach Sean McVay said Howard will undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus, and he'll miss the 2020 season, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Howard played all 16 games in 2019 mostly in a special-teams role, but he'll now turn his attention to getting healthy for the 2021 campaign. He was expected to have a heightened role this year after the departure of Cory Littleton, but now Kenny Young could enjoy expanded responsibilities. The 24-year-old Howard will be placed on injured reserve in the near future.

He'll need to beat out either Micah Kiser or Troy Reeder, and any missed time works against Howard, so he'll seek a quick return to the field.
