Todd Gurley is touted as an MVP contender. Jared Goff ranks among the top QBs in yardage and TD throws. Sean McVay already owns one NFL Coach of the Year award.
Here are some lesser-known names that are also a big part of why the Los Angeles Rams are 8-0 this season: Andrew Whitworth, Rodger Saffold, John Sullivan, Austin Blythe and Rob Havenstein.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Jamon Brown might have lost his starting job on the Los Angeles Rams' offensive line during his two-game suspension for violating the NFL's substances of abuse policy.
If Brown isn't in the starting lineup when the Rams (2-0) host the Chargers on Sunday, the right guard doesn't seem overly disappointed by the decision.
Brown saw just how well Austin Blythe played in his unfortunate absence, and he knows he's got to go back to work.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts have signed fourth-round draft pick Zach Banner and waived second-year center Austin Blythe.

The 6-foot-9, 360-pound tackle was Southern California's 2015 offensive lineman of the year and was chosen No. 137 overall.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts deactivated quarterback Andrew Luck and safety Clayton Geathers for Thursday night's game against Pittsburgh.
