05/02/16 - LB Alec Ogletree had his fifth-year option exercised by the Rams for the 2017 season. The Rams will pay Ogletree $8.369 million in 2017. He was a first-round pick in 2013.
Ogletree, 24, has been a starter since joining the Rams but missed 12 games last season with a broken leg. He made 42 tackles and two sacks in four games. Over three seasons, Ogletree has 270 tackles, 3.5 sacks and three interceptions in 36 games.
12/31/15 - LB Alec Ogletree was able to run with his teammates Wednesday, but is unlikely to play Sunday against the 49ers. Ogletree has been out since suffering a broken leg on Oct. 4 against Arizona. He was officially returned to practice Thursday while still on reserve/injured, designated for return.
Said head coach Jeff Fisher, "It's good to get him back on the grass and we'll see how he feels tomorrow. We'll try to get him involved in more than just some walk-through stuff, some scout-team stuff, too. From a timing standpoint, he's ready to start doing things on the grass. He's been straight-line running for a week or so and we wanted to introduce some change in direction to him. So, no better place to introduce a change in direction than on the field with his teammates."

12/28/15 - LB Alec Ogletree still has a chance to play in the final game of the season. Currently on reserve/injured, designated for return, Ogletree could get some work in practice this week. Said head coach Jeff Fisher, "We're going to see how he is. We're going to kind of move him around tomorrow and we'll get him on the grass on Wednesday and try to get him involved a little bit."
12/23/15 - LB Alec Ogletree did some running on the side during practice Wednesday, but he remains on reserve/injured, designated for return.
The Rams hope Ogletree can play a few snaps in the season finale against San Francisco.
Said head coach Jeff Fisher, "He's working inside. He'll be out over the next couple of days. We'll see how he moves and then we'll kind of push him as best we can, but we're not going to put him in a position where if he's not ready, we're not going to play him. But, I want him to have the opportunity to potentially get a few snaps against San Francisco. We'll know early in the week next week."
Fisher added, "I'm hoping. We were hopeful when the injury took place at Arizona that he would be back. Realistically, from a medical standpoint, the doctors said, 'probably not', but we want to give him that chance. I want to let him try to ... you set a goal out there for him and so we'll see. We'll know probably in the middle of next whether he can go or not."
12/15/15 - LB Alec Ogletree, who has been on reserve/injured, designated for return since Oct. 26, is expected to be activated to return to practice Friday. Because the Rams play Thursday night, he won't practice until next week. Ogletree suffered a fractured fibula on Oct. 4 against Arizona. Head coach Jeff Fisher said Tuesday, "He's not quite ready. He's close. The goal would be to see if he'd be available for San Francisco (the final regular-season game). If not, then he's got a head start on the offseason program."
10/29/15 - LB Alec Ogletree (fractured ankle) was placed on reserve/injured, designated for return by the Rams Tuesday (Oct. 27).
10/05/15 - LB Alec Ogletree suffered a fractured ankle in Sunday's game against Arizona and will undergo surgery Tuesday. Head coach Jeff Fisher declined to be specific about the injury, but said a decision on Ogletree's status will be made after the surgery. At the minimum, he is expected to be placed on reserve/injured, designated for return, but could be out for the rest of the season depending on what else, if anything, is found during surgery.
Ogletree was credited with 11 tackles by the coaches before being injured, and has 55 in four games, including 46 solo. Head coach Jeff Fisher said, "It's unfortunate because I don't know if you can find a linebacker that's playing better than he was during the first four weeks of the year."
