After the Los Angeles Rams cruised to victory Sunday night against the Chicago Bears 34-14, it seemed that they finished the game unscathed. However, head coach Sean McVay spoke with the media Monday and said that defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph-Day suffered a knee injury but is expected to play in the upcoming contest against the Indianapolis Colts.
Sean McVay says that Sebastian Joseph-Day suffered a knee injury on Sunday night but he is expected to play this upcoming Sunday. May be held out for a day or two this week.— Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) September 13, 2021
This will be something to monitor throughout the week as Joseph-Day is a force in the run game and will be a key component in helping stop the Colts dynamic backfield of running backs, Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. The LA Rams defense had their hands full with Bears RB David Montgomery, but he was a big part of slowing that down for the most part.
Towards the end of the game against the Chicago Bears, it was shown that outside linebacker Leonard Floyd walked off the field gingerly but we’ll have to wait on an update with that. If McVay didn’t mention anything on it today to the media, it may be a non-issue. Besides the injury to Sebastian Joesph-Day it seems the Rams came out of this game relatively clean. This is a sigh of relief from all the injuries that were occurring leading up to the season as it seemed the team could just not escape it.
Staying healthy this season is pivotal for the Rams this season as the NFC West is going to be some tough competition this year.
