Two of the Los Angeles Rams' best players suffered injuries in last week's win over the Seahawks that forced them to miss the game. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp left late in the fourth quarter with a knee injury while Aaron Donald missed all of the fourth quarter with a rib injury. Per Ian Rapoport on Twitter, both are hopeful to play in their Divisional Round game on Saturday against the Green Bay Packers. (source)

Betting Impact:

The Packers have remained as -7 point home favorites and the over/under is currently 46 points, per BettingPros consensus odds. Since the line remained unchanged after the optimistic news of these injuries, oddsmakers likely already built in the fact that both Kupp and Donald would play on Saturday. If one or the other's injuries were to worsen throughout the week, their absences would likely result in a line change in Green Bay's favor considering how important each player is to Los Angeles. In addition to Kupp and Donald, the Rams' quarterback situation should continue to be monitored as head coach Sean McVay has not officially announced Jared Goff as this week's starter.
