THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Rams head coach Sean McVay anticipates running back Malcolm Brown (finger) being available for this Sunday's game against the Bills; however, offensive lineman Joe Noteboom (calf) will be out. Cam Akers (ribs) has a chance to play at Buffalo.
McVay said during his Monday evening video conference with reporters that Noteboom sustained a Grade 2 calf strain in Sunday's win at the Philadelphia Eagles. Second-year offensive lineman David Edwards, who replaced Noteboom last week, is expected to step in for him against Buffalo.
"(Noteboom is) a possible candidate to put on the IR with it being three weeks, but we're going to wait to get a little bit more information," McVay said. "But he'll be out this week."
Brown sustained a fractured left pinky which he got fixed today, according to McVay, but it won't affect his availability against the Bills.
"We'll be able to put a splint on there and he should be okay with that," McVay said.
Akers, meanwhile, is dealing with separated rib cartilage and is considered day-to-day.
