LA Rams game day primer: NFL Playoffs round one
By Bret Stuter
Will injuries play a major role?
The LA Rams are getting healthy, but there are still concerns. The Rams have activated DT Michael Brockers for this one, and that has the Rams nearly at full strength. Only Taylor Rapp remains on injured reserve from the Rams first meeting with the Seahawks. And the Rams may feel the absence of running back Darrell Henderson, who has been a great change of pace running back if the Rams are unable to get either Malcolm Brown or Cam Akers on track.
The Rams have suffered injuries in each of the games against Seattle, and have no wish to repeat that experience for a third time. Any injuries from now one deplete the team for the next round. Not only must the Rams hope to win, but to do so without injuries.
Injury reports: The official injury list for the Seattle Seahawks is here.
LA Rams: OT Chandler Brewer has opted out for this season. LB Travin Howard and DB Terrell Burgess are out for the remainder of the 2020 season. DB Taylor Rapp, RB Darrell Henderson, RB Raymond Calais, OLB Justin Lawler and K Kai Forbath are on injured reserve.
Seattle Seahawks: The player injury report for the Seattle Seahawks can be found here.
The Seahawks have 12 players remaining on injured reserve, including DBs Quinten Dunbar, DB Tre Flowers, DB Neiko Thorpe, and FS Marquis Blair.

How do I enjoy football this year with no stadium?
With another week of NFL Football, don’t be satisfied with just pizza delivery and watching the game from the comfort of your living room sofa. And no to reheating Christmas dinner leftovers. Chill some beer and wine. Brown some taco meat and set up a taco bar to keep you nourished throughout the game.
