  • Rams' Quentin Lake: Develops into starting role

    Lake logged 53 tackles (42 solo), six passes defended and recovered a fumble during the 2023 regular season over 14 games played. Through the first half of the 2023 season, Lake looked like he was going to continue his role from his rookie year as a special teams regular with scant usage on defense, but he replaced Russ Yeast as a starter after a Week 10 bye and performed well despite suffering a hamstring injury that cost him three games. With Jordan Fuller an unrestricted free agent, Lake will likely retain his starting role in 2024 barring a splash by the Rams in the draft or free agency.

  • Rams' Quentin Lake: Solid outing in loss

    Lake recorded five total tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 26-25 win over the Giants. The second-year pro made just the fourth start of his career Sunday, taking Los Angeles' starting free safety duties from John Johnson since returning from injury in Week 15. Lake has now made five-or-more tackles in each of his last five outings as well, bringing his season total up to 50 tackles. Expect Lake to continue starting in the Rams' secondary in their Week 18 game against the 49ers.

  • Rams' Quentin Lake: Logs estimated full practice

    The Rams estimated Lake to be a full practice participant Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. The team held a "jog-through" Wednesday, so Lake didn't handle the rigors of a regular practice session. Nonetheless, the fact that he was estimated as a full participant bodes well for the safety's chances of returning from a three-game absence to face Washington in Week 15. Prior to him getting hurt, Lake's role had been steadily increasing, and he logged 100 percent of the Rams' defensive snaps for the first time this season against Seattle in Week 11.

  • Rams' Quentin Lake: Nearing return

    Lake (hamstring) could return to the field in Week 14 versus the Ravens, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports. Lake is considered to be "trending up" from his hamstring injury and is likely to be back for Week 15, if not Sunday against Baltimore. The safety has missed the last two contests since getting hurt in the team's Week 11 win over Seattle, and his return to the field would provide the team with a major boost to its secondary ahead of a tough matchup with the Ravens.

Head Coach Sean McVay does not sound optimistic regarding Lake's chances of playing, but the safety has not officially been ruled out. More clarity will come as the week progresses. If he indeed cannot play, John Johnson and Russ Yeast would presumably be in line for bigger workloads.
