Joyner (ankle) is expected to be ready for the playoffs, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Joyner will have the luxury of a first-round bye to grab some added rest. While it's far from certain, the Rams' high-level of optimism is reassuring, and Joyner seems to be on the right track to play.
Joyner (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports. Joyner suffered the injury in last Sunday's win over the Cardinals and was unable to practice this week. The 28-year-old currently has no official timetable for his return, but will hopefully the Rams will have a bye in the first round of the playoffs to offer some additional recovery time. According to Simmons, Blake Countess and Marqui Christian will be featured in a rotation at free safety in Joyner's absence.
Joyner (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports. Joyner left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter and has yet to practice this week. Should he be ruled out, look for Blake Countess or Marqui Christian to take over as starter, according to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
Joyner is day-to-day after exiting Sunday's game against the Cardinals with an ankle injury, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Joyner had three solo tackles before leaving the game in the fourth quarter. The 28-year-old's status should receive some additional clarity once the Rams return to practice Wednesday. Marqui Christian would likely start at free safety should Joyner be unable to play Week 17.
Joyner is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to an ankle injury. Joyner exited Sunday's game midway through the fourth quarter. As long as Joyner remains sidelined, expect Marqui Christian to slot in as the Rams' starting free safety.
