Update: Here are the official inactives for the Rams. Van Jefferson is good to go for the playoff game.
Rams inactives: Bryce Perkins, Taylor Rapp, Buddy Howell, Chris Garrett, Terrell Lewis, Alaric Jackson, Tremayne Anchrum.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) January 17, 2022
Programming note: Countess will wear No. 36.
The Los Angeles Rams welcome the Arizona Cardinals to town for a rubber match as the opening round of the 2022 NFL Playoffs comes to a close. We get the NFL’s first Monday playoff game, which gave both teams an extra day of rest. They submitted final injury reports on Saturday and we’ll get inactives at 6:45 p.m. on Monday evening.
The Rams are 3.5-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook.
Los Angeles Rams inactives/players with injury designation
Out: S Taylor Rapp (concussion)
Doubtful: RB Buddy Howell (hamstring)
Questionable: WR Van Jefferson (shoulder)
The biggest news is that their free safety, Taylor Rapp will not play due to a concussion. Van Jefferson is listed as questionable and it is notable he was downgraded this week. Jefferson was a full participant on Thursday, but then was limited on Friday and Saturday. It’s better than a DNP, but the setback after Thursday is something to keep an eye on heading into the game.
Any remaining inactives will be healthy scratches. Last week, their inactives included the following: QB Bryce Perkins, OLB Chris Garrett, OLB Terrell Lewis, OL AJ Jackson, OL Tremayne Anchrum Jr., and TE Brycen Hopkins
