Chris Long feeling healthy, faster after dropping weight

For the first time in his career last season, Chris Long was absent from the Rams lineup.

Long was injured in Week 1 against Minnesota and ended up missing 10 games after undergoing ankle surgery.

Now it appears he may be getting back to full strength after struggling to get back into a rhythm once returning from injury.

"I feel good," Long said, via the team website. "I dropped some weight this year to try to be quicker. And I feel like playing at that weight, I can be productive and really get off the ball and cause problems."

A healthy and faster Long is bad news for opposing offensive lines, but it's certainly good news for the Rams coaching staff and his teammates.
