If you’ve been following along this week, you know that the Los Angeles Rams are about as healthy as you could ever ask them to be as they head into the NFC Championship game against the New Orleans Saints. That bodes well in what is now the most important 60 minutes of their entire season.
And the Friday injury report isn’t going to raise any concerns.
The Saints, however, will be without a pair of pass-catchers. And despite the injury report listing him as questionable for Sunday’s game, the Saints will indeed be without veteran tight end Benjamin Watson — as it was announced earlier that he’ll miss the game with appendicitis.
You’ve got to feel for a 15-year veteran like Watson, who announced he’ll retire after this season. Should the Rams win on Sunday, it’s clearly not the exit to his career the 38 year old TE had envisioned.
But the absence of Watson and Keith Kirkwood, along with the dinged up nature of their offensive line, bode well for the Rams.
