The Los Angeles Rams have placed rookie safety Jordan Fuller on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

A sixth-round draft pick from Ohio State, Fuller started the first three games of the season but suffered a shoulder injury in a Week 3 loss to the Buffalo Bills and was inactive the Rams’ victory in Week 4 against the New York Giants.

Fuller returned to the starting lineup in a 30-10 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 5, but injured the same shoulder when he tackled running back J.D. McKissic during the final defensive series.

“It’s his right side,” Rams coach Sean McVay said. “He had a little stinger. It’s more of his neck, kind of, just having a stinger, but it is on the right side.”

Second-year pro Taylor Rapp, who started 10 games last season and started in Fuller’s absence in Week 4, is expected to start when the Rams (4-1) play the San Francisco 49ers (2-3) at Levi’s Stadium
