    Rams left tackle Greg Robinson, the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, is inactive for Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

    Coach Jeff Fisher said this week that he was considering personnel changes along the offensive line.

    Robinson has struggled with penalties. In last week’s loss against the Miami Dolphins, he was called for an illegal block in the back after a scramble by quarterback Jared Goff.

    Veteran Rodger Saffold, who has started at left guard, is the Rams' most experienced lineman and has played left tackle.

    Guard Jamon Brown, inactive last week because of a hand injury, is active against the Saints.
