The Los Angeles Rams travel to face the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13 in a critical matchup to keep their faint playoff hopes alive. They are dealing with an assortment of injuries, including tight end Gerald Everett. Head coach Sean McVay told the media on Tuesday that Everett is going to be day-to-day heading into practice, according to beat writer Gary Klein.

Everett played in 17 of the team’s 54 snaps on Monday against the Ravens. He finished the game with two catches for 23 yards. Following a week in which he had one reception for 20 yards, Everett is officially in a bit of an injury-related slump.
