Safety Eric Weddle is leaving to sign for the playoffs after injuring Jordan Fuller at the end of the season at the Los Angeles Rams.
Weddle’s return to the Rams was announced Wednesday by his agent David Canter.
Fuller, the Rams defensive caller, sustained an ankle injury that required surgery at the end of the season in their Los Angeles loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

Weddle, 37, retired after the 2019 season in which he started all 16 games for the Rams. He was the team captain and was the defensive caller.
A six-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time All-Pro, Weddle has 29 interceptions, including four for touchdowns, 8 forced fumbles, 7 fumble recovery, 9.5 sacks and 98 pass deflections in 13 seasons.
He spent his first nine seasons with the Chargers, who picked him in the 2007 draft round, and three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before joining the Rams in 2019.
