The Rams defense will be a 4-2-5, gap control style of defense.
Look for McConnell and Cloe to be at the defensive ends with Garrett Ferguson and Smithson at defensive tackle. Inside linebackers look to be White and Ulrich with Duckett and Jared Finley as outside backers. Zach Williams and Fox are to play corner with Adam Hudson at free safety.
Chase Jackson and Sheldon Meyer are out with injury this week, while Devin Peterson and Devin Miner do not have enough practices in to play this week.
