Thousand Oaks, California – Uncertainty looms regarding the health of the Los Angeles Rams as they start preparing for the playoff game at the Green Bay Packers.
Defensive handling Aaron Donald He has a rib injury, wide receiver Cooper cup He has bursitis in his knee, midfielder John Wolford It has a snappy and quarterback Jared Goff He continues to recover from his thumb surgery on December 28.
Ramez coach Sean McVeigh expressed optimism Sunday night that Donald and Cope could return for next Saturday’s match, but the situation remains unclear.
“I want to be able to only see their health,” said McVeigh, Wolford and Goff. “That’s the first thing, and we’ll go from there.”
McVeigh said he did not specify who would start against the Packers, nor did he indicate whether he was leaning in any direction.
Wolford started the second game in a row on Saturday with a 30-20 win over the Wilde card in the Seattle Seahawks, but came out with 5:40 to play in the first quarter after taking a hit.
Goof entered the game – 12 days after surgery to fix a broken thumb in his hand he had thrown – and passed 155 yards and landed. Afterward, Goff said he did not feel a pain in his thumb and that he was “very capable of what is happening now,” despite being less than 100% healthy.
However, McVeigh said Sunday that it was clear that the injured Juve’s thumb had affected his play, and the coach refused to speculate who would start against the Packers if Goff’s recovery continued to progress without any relapse.
McVeigh said of Gove: “I’ll take it day in and day out. I influenced him yesterday; I watched the match, I did.” “And so it might not have been painful, but it was something that did a great job of fighting, and was ready to go; and there were some things he’d usually be able to do that seemed to be a factor.”
Wolford and Juve were the only active midfielders in the Rams against the Seahawks, but McVay said that due to the circumstances, it would likely keep the third midfielder active against the Packers.
As for Donald, who scored 13.5 bags in the regular season and added two more against the Seahawks, McVeigh declined to provide details when asked how severe a rib injury was.
“We’ll be smart with him all week,” said McVeigh. “But I think if there is anything he will do, he will do whatever he can to be ready to go.”
Donald was injured in the third quarter in Seattle when he hit the quarterback Russell WilsonWho seemed to land on Donald’s ribs. Donald left the match and did not return.
Cobb was knocked out in the fourth quarter although McVeigh said his injury had not occurred in any specific match.
“We’ll be watching this day in and day out for him and hopefully the swelling and inflammation will ease with anticipation and we hope to get him ready to go,” said McVeigh.
McVeigh also said that the guard left David Edwards, Who came off the tilt on Saturday in the second trimester, has Achilles tendinitis and will be day in and day out. If he is unable to play, Bobby Evans He will start at the left guard.
