The Los Angeles Rams continued to get good news Friday as they make their final preparations for Saturday’s NFC Wild Card round playoff game at the Seattle Seahawks as they removed defensive lineman Michael Brockers from the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list.

Brockers is expected to play extensively Saturday at Seattle. His return is another step toward the Rams getting closer to full strength for the postseason. Earlier in the week, the Rams removed wide receiver Cooper Kupp from the COVID-19 list and they activated left tackle Andrew Whitworth from the injured reserve. All three veterans will be needed as the Rams try to pull off the upset against their NFC West rival.

Kupp is clearly fired up for the postseason.

Brockers started the first 15 games of the season before missing the Rams’ Week 17 win over the Arizona Cardinals while on the COVID list. Brockers has five sacks this season and the Rams are getting a nice boost with him back in the fold.
