The Rams will be without several of their starters for Sunday's regular season finale including EB Todd Gurley and DT Aaron Donald.

LOS ANGELES — The Rams will be without several of their starters on Sunday in anticipation of the club’s playoff game next weekend.

Head coach Sean McVay announced his decision to rest many of the team’s key players earlier this week, with the hope of getting them healthy for Wild Card Weekend. And now it’s official.

Running back Todd Gurley, defensive tackle Aaron Donald, safety Lamarcus Joyner, and middle linebacker Alec Ogletree were full participants during the practice week and as such did not have an injury status on Friday. Even so, all four will be inactive for today’s regular season finale.

Joining them on the sidelines will be left tackle Andrew Whitworth and center John Sullivan who will also be inactive.

Starting linebacker Mark Barron did not practice all week after missing the last game with an achilles injury. He was listed as doubtful for today’s game and will also be inactive.

Wide receiver Cooper Kupp entered the game as questionable after only participating on a limited basis in Friday’s session, but he is active for Sunday’s contest.

Below is the full list of inactives for both teams.
