On Wednesday, the Rams announced that they have activated linebacker Micah Kiser off the injured/reserve list, making him eligible to play this week against the Cardinals. Kiser has been on IR since Week 11, missing the past five games for the Rams. In nine starts in 2020, Kiser has recordered 77 total tackles, three pass deflections, and a forced fumble.

Secondly, left tackle Andrew Whitworth has reportedly returned to practice this week although he has yet to be officially activated. He sustained what looked to be a severe leg injury in Week 10, but the veteran has worked his tail off to be able to return this season. Sean McVay has targeted the wild card round — should the team make it in the post season — as his potential return to play.
