Injury Updates: Woods, Barwin on Track to Play vs. Seahawks

Check out the best photos from the Rams game against the Eagles.

The Rams have lost cornerback Kayvon Webster for the rest of the season due to a ruptured achilles, but they will likely get a few players back on the field this weekend.

Notably, head coach Sean McVay said wide receiver Robert Woods (shoulder) and outside linebacker Connor Barwin (forearm) are expected to practice on Wednesday and both are on pace to play in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

"They're going to start to get some work in. They'll be able to participate in practice on Wednesday," head coach Sean McVay said on Monday. "Again, just like we had kind of discussed last week, they're on track — unless there's any setbacks — to be able to play and be available for the Seattle game."

Woods was injured during the Week 11 contest against the Vikings while making a catch late in the game over the middle of the field. Barwin has missed the last two games after suffering his forearm injury against the Saints.

Los Angeles also had a number of players suffer injuries during Sunday's contest, the most serious of which was Webster's ruptured achilles. The club placed him on injured reserve on Monday, also re-signing cornerback Dominique Hatfield to the practice squad.

But Webster also revealed via an Instagram post that he had been playing through a shoulder injury for much of the season. The Rams had previously listed Webster on the injury report this season with a shoulder issue, but the cornerback has not missed practice nor a game with it in weeks.

"There's a lot of things that demonstrate Kayvon's toughness to be able to play through a shoulder injury, and there's a lot of times, too, where some of those injuries allow you to play and then you know you're going to get it fixed post-season," McVay said. "We love Kayvon, hate it for him that he had to go out like that, but he's meant a lot to this team."

Cornerback Trumaine Johnson also left Sunday's contest with an injury, but McVay said there was a misunderstanding in the injury announcement and Johnson is not in the concussion protocol. Instead, Johnson left Sunday's game and did not return due to a stinger.

"He's not in the protocol — he actually checked out on all that," McVay said. "That was just a little bit of a misunderstanding. So that's actually positive news on Trumaine, where it was a stinger that was the reason why he wasn't able to come back into that game. So that's positive where he's not in the protocol or anything like that." 

Additionally, offensive linemen Andrew Whitworth and Rob Havenstein are both dealing with knee injuries — though neither is believed to be serious.

"They had their ankles kind of rolled up, but it ended up being a knee with both of those guys with a mild MCL," McVay said. "Andrew came back — he checked out good today. Rob was in good spirits. They'll be day-to-day. But it was very positive when you look at just the way they got rolled up on in terms of what can come out of those types of plays. And fortunately for us, it didn't result in something that was going to be season ending."

"The anticipation is that we'll have those guys available," McVay added.
