Injury Report 12/19: Troy Hill ruled out for Saturday's game vs. 49ers

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Rams cornerback Troy Hill (thumb) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the 49ers. Defensive back Darious Williams is expected to start in his place.

"Surgery went well, he's feeling good, but we felt like the best thing for him and as we move forward was to keep him out this week," Rams head coach Sean McVay said of Hill.

Meanwhile, kicker Greg Zuerlein (right quad) is questionable to play. McVay said they would test his leg on Friday. If Zuerlein is unable to go, his replacement would be signed by then. McVay said the team is bringing in other kickers to work out just in case but wanted to keep those names in-house.

"Most of it really just requires his feedback to us," McVay said, when asked what he would need to see out of Zuerlein on Friday. "If there are some things where maybe his typical range, because he has great range, is limited a little bit, those are things we certainly we would be understanding of because he is our kicker, he's done it at a high level for a long time. It would really be if it just gets to the point where he's not able to go and it inhibits our ability to operate, kick off, things like that."

Tight end Gerald Everett (knee) is good to go after missing the Rams' last three games.

For the 49ers, starting safety Jaquiski Tartt (ribs), starting defensive end Dee Ford (quadricep, hamstring) and reserve defensive tackle Jullian Taylor (elbow) have all been ruled out for Saturday's game.

Below are the final injury reports for both teams. The Rams held a walk-thru on Tuesday, so that day's participation is an estimation based on if a full practice had been conducted.
