While they're still not out of the woods, the Los Angeles Rams are starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel as it relates to their current COVID-19 outbreak. The Rams activated receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and running back Darrell Henderson off of the team's reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, leaving both players eligible to play in Tuesday night's game against the Seahawks.
The Rams also activated defensive back Donte Deayon, linebacker Justin Hollins, tight end Brycen Hopkins and tackle Alaric Jackson. Los Angeles still has over a dozen players remaining on its COVID-19 list that includes linebackers Von Miller, defensive backs Jalen Ramsey, Jordan Fuller and Terrell Burgess, and tight end Tyler Higbee. The Rams' outbreak led to the NFL moving their game against the Seahawks from Sunday to Tuesday evening. The NFL also postponed two other games as well over 100 players across the league were placed on their team's respective COVID-19 list.
