The Los Angeles Rams announced Week 18 inactives and Van Jefferson is officially ACTIVE for their matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Jefferson was listed as questionable this week due to a shoulder injury. He was a full participant in practice on Thursday but then was downgraded to limited on Friday and Saturday.
Jefferson makes a big impact for the Rams offense. He’s the team’s second-leading receiver and has six scores on the year. He’s had a solid amount of success against the Cardinals too this season. The two teams have met twice already this season and Jefferson’s statlines are impressive. During Week 4 when the NFC West rivals faced off, he had six catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. It’s his highest yardage mark of the season too. In the more recent Week 14 meeting, he only had two catches. Still, even on a limited volume he still put up 58 yards and a score.
33% of his touchdowns this season have come against Arizona, so having him in the lineup Monday night is a huge advantage for the Rams.
