HODGE PLAYS AS RAMS IMPROVE TO 9-1
LOS ANGELES – Former Prairie View A&M wide receiver KhaDarel Hodge saw action in his eighth straight game for the Los Angeles Rams in a 36-31 win Sunday.
Hodge played on offense and special teams as the Rams improved to 9-1 on the season.
Hodge, who was signed to the active roster from the practice squad on Sept. 19, made his first NFL reception at Seattle on October 7 in the fourth quarter on a 14-yard catch with less than 10 minutes remaining, leading to a field goal. Earlier this season, Hodge made one tackle on special teams in games against the Los Angeles Chargers (Sept. 23) and against Green Bay (Oct. 28). He also saw action in games against Minnesota on Sept. 27, Denver on Oct. 14, San Francisco on Oct. 21, and New Orleans on Nov. 4.
Hodge played in all four preseason games with the Rams, starting the final two contests. He caught eight passes for 100 yards and one touchdown. After being released at the end of the preseason, Hodge was signed to practice squad in early September.
Last season for the Panthers, Hodge earned first-team All-SWAC honors, as well as Black College All-America accolades from both BOXTOROW and SBN/Power News Radio Network. Hodge was third in the SWAC in both receptions (48) and receiving yards (844), second in yards per catch (17.6) and first in touchdown receptions (12). In his three-year Panther career, Hodge caught 104 passes for 1,797 yards and 21 touchdowns.
The Rams return to action next Monday night vs. Kansas City.
