St Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher expects to see a lot more from Tavon Austin next season and thinks that he can step up his game.

St Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has insisted that wide receiver Tavon Austin will be able to become a weapon for the club's offense in the 2014 season.

Fisher said that Austin's statistics in 2013 were reasonable, but does expect to see a lot more from the wideout with another training camp and extra reps behind him.

"We're not disappointed in what his production was last year at all," Fisher told ESPN.com. "One of the things that was misleading was he had two or three returns called back - one against Dallas Cowboys - and then he got hurt.

"I think another year in the program, in the offense, OTAs, training camp, you'll see more production. I think we'll do a better job of using him now that we know what he's capable of doing. Kind of looking forward to see him improve from year one to year two."

Austin made 40 receptions for 418 yards last season.
