Rams LB Josh Carraway Tears Achilles, OL Aaron Neary Fractures Ankle

The Rams’ depth took a blow in their most recent preseason game. Linebacker Josh Carraway tore his Achilles while offensive lineman Aaron Neary fractured an ankle, per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com (Twitter link). 

Both players will now undergo surgery and miss the entire 2019 season. As Thiry points out, they were both fighting to make the team. Neary was suspended for the first four games of the season back in June, which wasn’t going to help his cause of making the initial 53, although it’s a moot point now. Neary originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Broncos back in 2016.

He started for the Rams at center back in Week 17 of 2017, the only regular season appearance of his career so far. He’s spent most of the past two seasons on the Rams’ practice squad. The Rams are going with unproven second-year player Brian Allen as their starting center this year, and now they’re pretty thin at the position.

Carraway was drafted in the seventh round by the Titans in 2017. He spent some time on the active roster but only appeared in one game. After langing on Washington’s practice squad last year, he signed with the Rams back in May. A productive pass-rusher at TCU, Carraway was facing an uphill battle to make the team.

Titans Cut Roster Down To 53

Starting right tackle Jack Conklin will return to the Titans’ active roster after missing training camp due to his ACL tear in Tennessee’s second-round playoff game. He will be taken off the PUP list, pointing to an early-season return rather than a six-week absence.

Many other Titans will have to head elsewhere. Tennessee announced its cuts, trimming the roster from 90 to 53 players. Here is the full list of cuts:
