Tremayne Anchrum Jr. details how his recovery back from injury has made him even more determined to get back on the field & into the starting lineup | Featured on Rams Revealed Ep. 101

Two summers ago in Denver, Tremayne Anchrum Jr.'s year ended before it could truly begin, with an injury in the preseason finale against the Broncos.

Born in the Mile High City, he returned to Colorado last week in the best form of his career as he anticipates his fourth campaign.

"It feels weird," the 25-year old told us on the season's debut episode of Rams Revealed. "It's kind of a full-circle moment almost."

In fact, the work that the two-time national champion from Clemson put in this offseason was more than enough to convince the Rams coaching staff to hold Anchrum out of action on Saturday versus the Broncos in anticipation of the opener in Seattle.

Indeed, it's been a long road back for Anchrum. The preseason injury in 2021 was followed by a broken leg suffered on the first offensive snap of a Week 2 win over the Atlanta Falcons last fall. Anchrum wasn't certain he'd continue his football career after landing on injured reserve for the second time in a 13-month span.

"It was devastating," the Powder Springs, Georgia product recalled.

But through injury, position change, and a mere five offensive plays of opportunity thus far in his NFL career, Anchrum persevered for his best shot yet. "I have so much more I want to accomplish. I have a yearning to be great… I knew for a fact that I didn't want to go out like that at all.

"I think I deserve that. I think my family, fans, my friends deserve that. And I think this team deserves that."

Whether or not Anchrum is part of the starting unit that takes the field against the Seahawks remains to be seen. While he's held down the right guard role throughout the spring and summer, there remains a possibility that another tackle-by-trade, Joe Noteboom, could warrant a look at that position, when healthy.

In addressing that topic and many others, Anchrum exemplified the confidence and competitive disposition that the revamped offensive line hopes to bring to the field under the leadership of new position coach Ryan Wendell.

"This offensive line is going to be the best it's ever been. I believe that wholeheartedly," the Rams 2022 nominee for Walter Payton Man of the Year said.

"In the offensive line room, this year, we're like 'You've got to prove it.'

"If you're the best, I don't care what you've done two, three, four years ago. If you're the best, show me. That's competition all across the line. And I love that."
