Countess does not have an injury designation for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game against the Cowboys, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports.
Countess has cleared the league-managed concussion protocol, and is on track to suit up unhindered versus the Cowboys. The 25-year-old will slot in as the top backup to starting safety John Johnson.
Countess will remain sidelined due to a head injury sustained during the first half of Sunday's contest. The third-year pro will turn his focus towards returning to full health in time for the postseason.
Countess sustained a head injury during the first half of Sunday's regular-season finale. If the third-year pro enters the league-mandated concussion protocol, Troy Hill and Sam Shields will benefit from a small increase in snaps.

Countess injured his shoulder in the Rams' preseason opener, but appears to be healthy as he enters the last two weeks of the preseason. Countess is currently backing up John Johnson at strong safety.
Countess tallied one tackle in the contest. The injury is not considered serious, so he should be considered day-to-day. He is looking to earn a more prominent role in the Rams' secondary this season, but as of now he projects as a depth safety.
