Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay expects Aaron Donald and Cooper Kupp to be available in Saturday’s divisional round contest against the Green Bay Packers. John Wolford and David Edwards will be monitored day-to-day and have not been ruled out for this weekend’s game.
"Don't expect that to affect his game status for this week." - McVay on Aaron Donald— Los Angeles Rams (@RamsNFL) January 11, 2021

The Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks 30-20 on Saturday despite Jared Goff playing through a recently-broken thumb, plus losing Wolford, Donald, Edwards and Kupp mid-game. Los Angeles won their Week 17 contest against the Arizona Cardinals in spite of injuries and the COVID-19 reserve list, so they have not been strangers to winning in the face of adversity and doubt.
In this case, it seems that there is a little less doubt about Donald and Kupp’s availability as compared to how things appeared when each player left the field.
McVay also said that he wants to see how Goff and Wolford look this week health-wise prior to making a decision on starter and backup.
