Update: Jefferson is now back in the game. That is good news, as the Rams have lost TE Tyler Higbee for the rest of the game.

The Los Angeles Rams already appear to have lost Tyler Higbee for the game and now their No. 3 wide receiver is questionable to return with a knee injury. Ben Skowronek will likely take over for Jefferson, but he did drop a sure touchdown in the second quarter.

Jefferson only had one reception for three yards before being forced from the field, but he is a better deep threat than Skowronek and would be missed if he can’t return.
