Draft Scout T.J. McDonald News
07/31/16 - S T.J. McDonald, who was arrested in May on non-alcoholic DUI charges in Los Angeles and missed the Rams' entire offseason program, reported to camp and appears ready to produce in the Rams' secondary. McDonald was on his way to another 90-plus tackle season a year ago before his year was cut down after 11 games with a shoulder injury. With the shoulder injury behind him, McDonald can sooth some concerns about the back end of the Rams' defense by solidifying one safety spot. The Rams go into training camp needing to replace departed CB Janoris Jenkins and S Rodney McLeod - both left in free agency to the Giants and Eagles - but the task would have been considerably more difficult had McDonald's off-field issues or injury sabotaged his availability.
06/04/16 - RB Tre Mason and S T.J. McDonald were not present during the first week of OTAs and with both dealing with legal issues, neither is expected over the final two weeks of offseason workouts.
"Tre Mason (has been) excused for personal reasons," Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said. "Second is T.J. McDonald, and that's also the case - he's been excused for personal reasons, and we've been in touch with T.J. It is quite likely that they will miss the OTA sessions."
McDonald was arrested in May on suspicion of driving under the influence of something other than alcohol and was expected to be in court on Friday.
Mason was arrested in March on suspicion of possession of marijuana, reckless driving, failure to register a motor vehicle and resisting arrest in Hollywood, Fla. According to court records, Mason pleaded not guilty to the charges in April and is awaiting word on a trial date.
05/11/16 - S T.J. McDonald of the Rams was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of a substance other than alcohol. McDonald, 25, was arrested in Woodland Hills, Calif., early Tuesday morning after police questioned him for hitting a parked car.
After being taken to a police station, officers determined McDonald was allegedly under the influence of a substance that could be a prescription drug or narcotic. He was booked for a misdemeanor charge and released on $300 bail. He is due in court June 3, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's website.
12/23/15 - S T.J. McDonald, who is on injured reserve because of a shoulder injury, underwent surgery and is expected to be OK for the team's offseason program. Said head coach Jeff Fisher, "T.J.'s shoulder was not in good shape to say the least, but he's got a new shoulder. From a timing standpoint, we needed to do it, just so we could get him in the offseason program. He'll be good to go."
12/11/15 - S T.J. McDonald (shoulder surgery) was placed on reserve/injured by the Rams Friday (Dec. 11).
