Saffold had been dealing with an ankle injury last month, but it appears like its a ribs injury that is plaguing his availability now. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but more information regarding his availability moving forward should clear up soon.
Saffold (ankle) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register reports.
Saffold sprained his ankle last Sunday against the Texans but is expected to suit up this week as the Rams head to Minneapolis to take on the Vikings. Look for the 29-year-old to resume his regular starting role at left guard.
Saffold exited Sunday's victory over the Texans due to a previously-undisclosed ankle injury and didn't return. It wouldn't be much of a surprise if he logs minimal practice time this week.
Saffold is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Texans due to an ankle injury, Lindsey Thiry of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Saffold's injury came after the Rams already held a significant lead, so it would not be surprising to see him held out as a precaution. Austin Blythe will likely replace him at left guard.
