We’ve seen the LA Rams personnel office make the right moves so far this season. But when it comes to gameday, the LA Rams coaching staff thinks otherwise, and the results have been less than expected. To compensate for the LA Rams’ offensive line injury woes, the front office signed IOL Oday Aboushi and OC Matt Skura.

Despite no end in sight to the Rams’ offensive line injury woes, neither Aboushi nor Skura have seen any action. The Rams had a perfect opportunity to get Aboushi some work in Week 4 to start at the left guard but opted to assign that role to backup offense tackle Bobby Evans.

In Week 5, the Rams had the option to start Matt Skura at the offensive center, but have opted to start third-stringer Jeremiah Kolone to face the Dallas Cowboys. That is a controversial decision in the eyes of some fans.

Now, after hinting that running back Malcolm Brown may see some action in Week 4, only to see two offensive snaps and no carries, the Rams are doubling down. This week the Rams have signed RB Malcolm Brown to the active roster. What could that mean? What will it mean?

More LA Rams roster moves. And to be honest, they all make sense. So from a quick observation, the front office continues to restock the Rams’ battered roster with fresh veteran options. But will the coaches use these players? After all, the trend so far this season is not.
