  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Questionable for postseason opener

    Jefferson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday's wild-card game against the Cardinals, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

    Jefferson avoided the injury report for the entirety of his second pro campaign until the playoffs, when he was listed as limited both Friday and Saturday due to a shoulder injury. In a receiving corps that's been working without Robert Woods (knee) since Week 10, Jefferson's services are needed, even if he hasn't been on point for more than a month. In four appearances to close the regular season, Jefferson hauled in nine of 16 targets for 123 yards and no touchdowns while tallying a 10-yard carry. His status will be known approximately 90 minutes before Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Downgrades to limited practice

    Jefferson was listed as a limited participant in Friday's practice with a shoulder injury, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.

    Jefferson appeared on the Rams' initial weekly injury report Thursday with the same issue, though he was a full participant for the team's first practice session. The Rams haven't revealed whether Jefferson's limitations Friday was part of a pre-planned maintenance regimen or the result of a setback, but Saturday's injury report should shed light on the matter. If cleared to play in Monday's wild-card game against the Cardinals, Jefferson should maintain his usual role alongside Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham in three-receiver sets. Kupp remains the clear No. 1 target for Matthew Stafford by a landslide, while Jefferson appeared to have slipped behind Beckham in the pass-catching hierarchy over the final quarter of the regular season.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Cool stretch continues in loss

    Jefferson caught two of his three targets for 31 yards during Sunday's 27-24 loss to San Francisco.

    It was a disappointing final four games of the regular season for Jefferson, who finished with just nine receptions for 123 yards during that stretch and limited him to a 50-802-6 line for the year. Still, there were positive signs from the sophomore, and Jefferson clearly is an important piece of the passing attack for Los Angeles. It also wouldn't be surprising if his numbers improve during the duration of the Rams' playoff run. He probably still should be viewed as a risky fantasy target with just modest upside in this week's wild-card matchup against Arizona, though.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Catches four passes

    Jefferson caught four passes for 63 yards on five targets against Baltimore on Sunday.

    Jefferson's five targets were somewhat disappointing on a day where Matthew Stafford threw 35 pass attempts, but the second-year wideout made up for it with strong efficiency, as he regularly does. While the structure of the Rams passing game and Cooper Kupp's dominance within it only leaves so much room for Jefferson's single-game upside, it's also true that the Rams passing game can only go so far without involving Jefferson. He should project reasonably well in any game that Stafford does. The Rams face the 49ers in Week 18.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Catches one pass in win

    Jefferson caught one of six targets for six yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Vikings.

    Jefferson had his worst statistical game of the season, though his six targets were tied for the third-most of any Rams pass catcher in the contest. The last two weeks have been a letdown for 25-year-old wideout, who had scored a touchdown in each of the preceding three games. He'll at least have a good opportunity to get back on track Week 17 as the Rams take on a struggling Baltimore secondary that just allowed 525 passing yards and four touchdowns to the Bengals' Joe Burrow in Week 16.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Quiet in Week 15 win

    Jefferson caught both his targets for 23 yards and carried once for a 10-yard gain during Tuesday's 20-10 win over Seattle.

    Jefferson saw a three-game touchdown streak come to an end and accounted for his fewest yards from scrimmage since Week 6 in what amounted to a disappointing outing for the second-year wideout. He's still in the midst of a respectable season overall, registering 43 receptions for 702 yards and six touchdowns. While there's potential for Jefferson to take another step forward in 2022, the Rams have a crowded receiving corps, which has also contributed to his game-to-game inconsistency this season.

  • Rams' Van Jefferson: Rams-Seahawks moved to Tuesday

    Jefferson and the Rams will no longer play the Seahawks on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

    Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Rams organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, Los Angeles will be able to restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. After Tuesday's game, the Rams will face a quick turnaround for Week 16 with a Sunday game in Minnesota on Dec. 26.
