NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams are heading north for a rivalry week matchup against the 1-5 San Francisco 49ers in Week 7.

As they get ready to do so, they’re starting off with a favorable injury report at this point in the season that suggests K Greg Zuerlein will be starting on Sunday:

Rams Head Coach said Zuerlein has been cleared while WR Cooper Kupp is expected to be out. He also mentioned that LG Rodger Saffold III is on track to play, though it is still Wednesday. We’ll have to see how he progresses throughout the week. DL Michael Brockers returned to the game immediately, so I’d guess his absence today was more precautionary than anything. And I’d putt Matt Longacre in that same Saffold boat where we’re just gonna have to see how things develop.

One other note I’m sure has plenty of Rams fans excited is that rookie EDGE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo is off the Physically Unable to Perform list and isn’t even on the injury report. Okoronkwo broke his foot in May in the offseason program and is just now being made available. His absence from the injury report at least suggests he’s going to be able to at least practice and fight for a spot on the active roster and perhaps even playing time.

Meanwhile for the Niners...

Woof.
