Rams Head Coach Sean McVay discussed it during his remarks to the press today:

It’s kind of one of those things that’s day-to-day. It was similar to last year – where dealing with a couple different things – the main issue right now is his achilles. It’s something that sometimes you feel really good and then out of nowhere it might flare up. So, what we’re doing is we’re just taking it a day at a time. He wasn’t able to do anything yesterday. But, I think that’s something that will be determined later on in the week. But, to say it’s a concern, is fair for sure.

,,,

I don’t know if you could say he’s really had a setback. I think maybe just with some of the workouts and some of the things that he’s taking part in – just maybe not feeling as good as we’d like right now.

Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips mentioned it as well when asked if he was “concerned”:

Concerned, yes. We’ll see. Obviously, we don’t play till Monday. He’s coming off of two surgeries in the offseason, so obviously we’re concerned about him being ready

As for the Raiders, it seems as if they’ll be without major concerns:
