THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hip) and running back Darrell Henderson Jr. (thigh) are both questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars (1:05 p.m. pacific time, FOX).
McVay said prior to Friday's practice he would be "surprised" if Beckham didn't play Sunday, but that they would see how he was feeling Friday.
"He's making good progress," McVay said.
If Henderson can't go, running back Sony Michel would be the next man up. Michel would not returns kickoffs if put into the role of the No. 1 running back, according to McVay.
"I think he's a complete back, he can do a lot of different things for you," McVay said of Michel. "But the physicality, the toughness, the ability to level runs off, and the ability to compete in protection are some of the things that really stand out about his game."
Additionally, cornerback David Long Jr. (illness, non-COVID) is questionable after not practicing all week. Offensive lineman Rob Havenstein was added to the injury report Friday with a foot injury and is also listed as questionable for Sunday's game.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Ben Skowronek does not carry an injury designation. McVay said Skowonrek is good to go after missing last week's game against the Packers with back spasms.
For the Jaguars, starting running back James Robinson (heel/knee) is listed as questionable, while starting cornerback Shaquill Griffin (concussion) has been ruled out.
Below are the final injury reports for both teams. Note: The Rams held a walkthrough Wednesday; statuses for that day are an estimation based on a full practice.
