Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay said that he anticipates the return of wide receiver Cooper Kupp and defensive end Michael Brockers from the COVID-19 list in time for their wild card game against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday. He also said that there was a good chance that left tackle Andrew Whitworth would be activated from injured reserve.
On Tuesday’s injury report, only starting left guard David Andrews was completely out with injury. Jared Goff (thumb) was listed as limited for Tuesday and McVay wouldn’t make any announcement about the status of his quarterbacks for Saturday.
Rams anticipate key players WR Cooper Kupp, DL Michael Brockers and LT Andrew Whitworth to return for Saturday's wild-card playoff, but there seems to be uncertainty at quarterback as Jared Goff continues to rehab from thumb surgery.https://t.co/mLcGxVzzYm— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) January 6, 2021
If John Wolford makes his second career start this weekend, at least he will have Kupp and Whitworth for the first time. Wolford went 22 of 38 for 231 yards and an interception in his debut, but with 56 rushing yards tacked on.
