Los Angeles Rams safety Eric Weddle practiced Wednesday, and coach Sean McVay said he expected the veteran to play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
Weddle, signed by the Rams in the offseason, was in concussion protocol after leaving the team's road win Sunday over the Carolina Panthers with 5:23 remaining in the second quarter. He took a knee to his head as leaping Carolina running back Christian McCaffrey tried to make a play.
"He's feeling good," McVay said, per ESPN. "I think he was asymptomatic, so he's on track."
Weddle, the team's defensive signal caller, is in his 13th NFL season but first with the Rams. The Baltimore Ravens released Weddle, a two-time first-team All-Pro, in March, and the Rams quickly signed him to a two-year, $10.5 million deal.
