The Los Angeles Rams will travel in the Divisional Round round to face the No. 1 seed of the NFC — the Green Bay Packers. The game is set for Saturday, January 16 with kick-off at 4:35 p.m. ET.

Ahead of their game, we take a look at the Rams final injury report to see how these injuries may affect the team heading into their playoff matchup.

Rams final injury report

Out: LB Terrell Lewis (ankle), QB John Wolford (neck)
Doubtful: N/A
Questionable: WR Cooper Kupp (knee), OL David Edwards (ankle)

Notable players on in-week report: Aaron Donald (ribs), Jared Goff (right thumb), OL Andrew Whitworth (knee)

How injuries could affect Rams vs. Packers matchup

The Rams will have a new backup quarterback on Saturday as John Wolford is out with a neck injury that he suffered last week. Veteran Blake Bortles will back up starter Jared Goff. Goff is still dealing with a right thumb injury, but was taken off of the injury report.

Along with Goff’s updated injury status, it will be interesting to see if Cooper Kupp ends up playing. Kupp suffered a knee injury last week against the Seahawks and has not practiced this week. Despite not practicing at all, Rams head coach Sean McVay believes Kupp could end up playing. If Kupp does not play, then a lot of the attention will go to Robert Woods as the Rams’ top receiving option.

Lastly, the Rams’ defense will have superstar defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who is dealing with a rib injury. Having Donald is huge as LA’s defense will have a tall task of stopping Packers RB Aaron Jones and QB Aaron Rodgers.
