Mays, who was expected to replace Akeem Jordan as the two-down starter next to Derrick Johnson, tore a tendon in his wrist and needed surgery. It's likely we won't see him until after the Week 6 bye. Nico Johnson started the third preseason game next to Johnson, with James-Michael Johnson and Josh Mauga also expected to be in the mix until Mays returns.

Michael Sam DE STL
Michael Sam survived first cuts at Rams camp.
Through three preseason games, Rams coaches have credited Sam with five tackles, three sacks, two QB pressures and one QB hit on 80 snaps. He's gotten a slightly positive grade from PFF and has also done some work as a blocker on special teams. Sam, seventh-round rookie, is the first openly gay active player in NFL history. SI's Peter King suggested Tuesday that the Rams could try to sneak him onto the practice squad, although doing so would expose him to all other 31 teams via waivers.
