Joyner injured his ankle in Week 16 against the Cardinals and subsequently missed the team's regular-season finale. Joyner -- who has 78 tackles and one interception -- will bolster the Rams' secondary, as they attempt to halt Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday.
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 accumulate added rest. While it's far from certain, the Rams' high-level of optimism is a bit reassuring. Joyner seems to be on the right track at the given point in time.
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 left Sunday's game in the fourth quarter and has yet to practice this week. Should he be ruled, look for Blake Countess or Marqui Christian to take over as starter, according to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.
