Weddle underwent surgery to trim the meniscus in his right knee, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The recovery from this surgery should only take a few weeks, but Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reported in December that Weddle would also undergo shoulder surgery. Thiry relayed that the 35-year-old safety is considering retirement as well, and how he recovers from his pair of surgeries may play a role in his decision. Weddle is due to make $4.25 million in the 2020 season.

Weddle is considering retirement, and he's set to have shoulder and knee surgery this offseason, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Weddle had an impressive campaign, as he started all 16 games and recorded 108 tackles -- his highest total since 2013. The 34-year-old safety relayed that he won't come back to be a backup, and he believes the Rams will opt for younger talent like Taylor Rapp and John Johnson (shoulder) next year. Weddle has one year remaining on his contract.

Weddle amassed nine tackles (eight solo) and one pass defensed in Monday's 45-6 loss to the Ravens.

EDGE Analysis

Weddle hadn't tallied more than seven tackles in a single contest since Week 6, but it was still a night to forget against his former team as the Rams' defense failed to keep up with MVP candidate Lamar Jackson.

Weddle recorded 10 tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 20-7 loss to San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has now piled up 51 tackles (28 solo) through six contests, which makes him one of the more reliable defensive backs in IDP settings. With the Los Angeles offense in a bit of a funk, Weddle's fantasy value could also be trending up.

Weddle had 15 tackles (10 solo) and two passes defensed in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

The Buccaneers had 22 first downs via the pass, leaving Weddle plenty of opportunities to tally tackles in the middle of the field. The veteran safety had 34 tackles (20 solo) with three passes defense through the first four weeks of the season.

Weddle (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's Week 2 matchup with New Orleans, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Weddle was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he was able to practice fully Friday. Now healthy, the 34-year-old seems poised to resume his starting role in the Rams' secondary.

Weddle (concussion) was able to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Sean McVay noted that he's still hopeful that Weddle can suit up for Week 2 on Tuesday, and the fact that he was able to log some practice time moves him in the right direction. Weddle was on the wrong end of a hit during Sunday's game against Carolina, and continues to reside in the league's concussion protocol. If the veteran is unable to suit up for Sunday's game, Marqui Christian and Taylor Rapp would be in line to receive a bump up in snaps.

Head coach Sean McVay said he's hopeful Weddle (concussion) will play against New Orleans on Sunday, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

McVay noted, "You respect the process that this concussion protocol entails. It's always a positive sign when a player is asymptomatic, but there's a lot of tests that he has to go through to get the thumbs up to go. You always have to have those contingency plans in place. I think we're hopeful he'll be able to check out, but he has to go through all that." If Weddle is unable to suit up against the Saints, look for Marqui Christian and Taylor Rapp to be more involved. Rapp, the recent second-round pick out of Washington, owns the potential to be a serviceable contributor in IDP settings with enough playing time.

Coach Sean McVay said Weddle is in concussion protocol, but Weddle tweeted that he's "good as gold," Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

McVay's word trumps Weddle's self-diagnosis, but this may be encouraging news for a quick recovery. Keep an eye on Weddle's practice status Wednesday as the team gets ready for Week 2's contest versus the Saints. If Weddle misses additional time, expect Marqui Christian to jump into a starting free safety role.

Weddle is being evaluated for a possible concussion and won't return to Sunday's game against Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was carted off the field after sustaining a nasty head injury. Now that Weddle is done for the day, Marqui Christian will likely continue to see an increase in snaps. Expect the team to have a report regarding the concussion tests in the coming days.
