The Los Angeles Rams return to practice for Week 12 Monday Night Football on Thursday, but the status of wide receiver Robert Woods is still uncertain. Woods was a surprise inactive this past Sunday while dealing with a family matter. Head coach Sean McVay told the media on Wednesday that Woods is still dealing with the matter and has not rejoined the team yet, per J.B. Long.

Fantasy football analysis: Rams WR Robert Woods

Fantasy owners were surprised on Sunday, but given that we know Woods is dealing with a personal issue, it will be less of a surprise if he is inactive this week. The Rams will release practice reports Thursday through Saturday, so we’ll likely have a better idea of this situation heading into Sunday.

If there is still no word on his status heading into the Sunday kickoffs and you have a decision to make, the Ravens present a tough enough matchup that making the move to someone you know will play is not the worst idea in the world.
