ATLANTA (AP) — Jalen Ramsey is set to make his Rams debut in a revamped secondary against Julio Jones and the Atlanta Falcons.
Ramsey, the former All-Pro cornerback acquired by Los Angeles in a trade with Jacksonville on Tuesday, is active and expected to be matched up against Jones. Ramsey practiced with the Rams on Thursday and Friday after missing the past three games with the Jaguars because of a back injury.
The Rams need Ramsey after placing cornerback Aqib Talib and safety John Johnson on injured reserve this week. The team traded cornerback Marcus Peters to Baltimore.
Rams running back Todd Gurley (quadriceps) returns after missing one game. Backup Malcolm Brown (ankle) is not playing.
Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant will miss his second straight game with a toe injury.
