 Draft Scout Tavon Austin News
09/17/14 - WR Tavon Austin (knee) did not practice Wednesday after suffering his injury in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. Coach Jeff Fisher said, "We're going to play Tavon when Tavon's ready to play. We're not going to let him go out there if he can't, if he doesn't have his speed and quickness. We'll just see how that goes. Obviously, he didn't do anything today. He's better, but, he didn't do anything today. With 'Sted' (Stedman Bailey) coming back, Sted gives us some versatility. Perhaps we can fill in some of those voids in the event that Tavon can't play."
09/15/14 - WR Tavon Austin suffered a mild right knee sprain against Tampa Bay Sunday and, according to coach Jeff Fisher, he hasn't been ruled out for Sunday's game against Dallas. There were reports Austin might miss two or three weeks, but Fisher wouldn't confirm those reports.
09/14/14 - WR Tavon Austin exited Sunday's 19-17 win over the Bucs in the second quarter with a knee injury and did not return. Coach Jeff Fisher had no update on the status or severity of Austin's injury after the game, so it is unclear how much addition time Austin will miss, if any. His biggest contribution in Sunday's game was an 18-yard run on a sweep play. WR Austin Pettis filled in for Austin and came up with a 27-yard reception on third-and-9 during the Rams' game-winning drive.
06/12/14 - WR Tavon Austin acknowledged that it wasn't easy learning an NFL playbook when he was a rookie last season, noting that it almost "sounded like Spanish." He said, "It's all about getting comfortable. It was a pretty big adjustment for me at first. The playbook was different. The speed of the game was different. I eventually caught on and the game settled down." Now, as he is going through his first full offseason, there is an even larger comfort level, and Austin said simply, "I'm much smarter."
06/06/14 - WR Tavon Austin, who missed the final three games of the 2013 season because of an ankle injury, was full-go at Thursday's OTA.
