The Rams once again have a clean injury report.
Los Angeles has been remarkably healthy throughout the season, and remains so heading into the NFC Championship game with the Saints. For the second day in a row, the Rams have no injuries to report.
The most notable thing about Los Angeles’ practice on Thursday was that it was able to remain outside. The team operations staff brought in a tent for the parking lot, just in case the rain was so bad that it would have inhibited practice. But even though it rained for much of the morning, the precipitation let up in the early afternoon for the team’s practice.
“We're going to try to get some of that work in that we try to do with some of the fast pace, up-tempo periods. If we feel like it's to the point where we're not getting as much out of it, just based on the field conditions — we had a tarp over the field. So, it seems like it's in good shape right now, but worst case scenario, we can always bump right inside to that nice, big tent that you guys see out there,” McVay said prior to the start of practice.
But, the conditions remained good enough for the Rams to stay on their regular fields.

McVay noted that the organization did explore moving practice elsewhere, but because that would’ve been so far that the club would’ve had to travel, L.A. ultimately decided against it.
On the other side, New Orleans is also pretty healthy in preparation for Sunday’s conference championship. While tight end Benjamin Watson (illness) did not participate in practice for the second day in a row, starting left guard Andrus Peat (hand) was a full participant in Thursday’s session.
