The Los Angeles Rams hope Nelson Spruce’s return will provide a boost to a weak receiving corps.
Without question, the Los Angeles Rams unfortunately have one of the league’s weakest groups of wide receivers, and it’s been on display so far in the early 2016 season when considering they happen to be the only team heading into Week 3 without a single touchdown.
Hopefully, the return of Nelson Spruce can put an end to these offensive woes for the Rams.

Spruce returned to the practice field on Tuesday for Los Angeles after suffering a knee sprain during the preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys, but the wide receiver’s status for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is still up in the air. As exciting as Spruce returning to practice is, Jeff Fisher has been around long enough to know is the last thing Los Angeles can afford is to see their wideout suffer another injury from returning to action too soon.
While the team hope to see Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt as a dynamic duo in the passing game, the competition for playing time behind these two wide receivers is still wide open. Even if he only played in one preseason game, the six catches for 51 yards with a touchdown recorded against the Cowboys was enough to earn Spruce a roster spot for the 2016 season.
He may still have a long way to go, but the return of Spruce to practice is the first step in the right direction for a player who quickly became a fan favorite during the preseason.
