Michael Brockers hopes to make debut on Sunday

St. Louis Rams first-round draft pick Michael Brockers hopes to make his regular-season debut Sunday at the Edward Jones Dome against the Seattle Seahawks.

Brockers has been sidelined with a high ankle sprain since the team’s preseason finale, missing the first three-regular season games. Although the Rams have officially listed the defensive tackle as questionable, he expects to be in action.

We'll give it a go," Brockers said, according to Kathleen Nelson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I will be playing Sunday. The ankle's holding up pretty well, so I expect to play a heavy amount in Sunday's game."

Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Brockers has a “chance.” The Rams have been excited about Brockers, who they picked up after trading down in the first round. He has an opportunity to anchor a line that already has some nice players on the edge in Chris Long and Robert Quinn.
