Rams suffer multiple injuries during win over the Seahawks

LA beat Seattle in Saturday’s wild card game despite losing multiple key pieces to both offense and defense

NFL: NFC Wild Card Round-Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Rams pulled out the victory on the road in Seattle over the Seahawks on Saturday, but the wild card win came with a hefty price. LA lost starting quarterback John Wolford, wide receiver Cooper Kupp, guard David Edwards and — arguably the best defensive player in all of football — Aaron Donald.

Here are the updates for all three players:

John Wolford
He exited the game early in the first quarter with what appeared to be a neck injury. Before the half, Lindsey Thiry tweeted this photo showing Wolford with a neck brace on being put into an ambulance.

However, after the game she reported that Sean McVay said Wolford came back from the hospital and was able to celebrate with teammates in the Rams locker room after the win.

Aaron Donald
After sacking Russell Wilson in the third quarter, Aaron Donald was slow to get up as he grabbed his ribs. He was slow walking off the field and didn’t return to the game.

Cooper Kupp
There’s no update yet as to what happened to Cooper Kupp on this play, but he exited and left the game after with a non-contact knee injury.

David Edwards
The offensive guard left the game with an ankle injury and didn’t return.
