The Rams are currently dealing with a positive COVID-19 test, which could affect the team’s player availability come Sunday.

Los Angeles placed safety Nick Scott and tackle Bobby Evans on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. Both players were held out of practice Thursday as a precaution, in addition to Justin Hollins, Brian Allen and Ogbonnia Okoronkwo.

The trio of Rams defensive players are staying away from the team, but they have not been ruled out. Rams head coach Sean McVay expects them to play Sunday, per The Associated Press’ Greg Beacham.

As for the Jets, they will be relatively healthy as they head into the Week 15 cross-country matchup.

Jamison Crowder was the only player listed as a limited participant during Friday’s practice. Despite that, Crowder is expected to play on Sunday, per ESPN’s Rich Cimini. Sunday would mark only the fifth time that New York’s top three wide receivers — Crowder, Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims — all play together.

While New York has received a clean bill of health, injury-wise, the Jets will be without Foley Fatukasi come Sunday. The Jets placed Fatukasi on the COVID-19 reserve list on Thursday, but it wasn’t’ because he violated any protocols, Adam Gase said Friday, per Cimini. Gase explained that Fatukasi had close contact with someone outside the organization and did “nothing wrong.”

In addition to Fatukasi, defensive assistant Blake Williams (non-illness related) will not make the trip to Los Angeles. Williams is the son of Gregg Williams, who was recently fired from his post as Jets defensive coordinator.

In other injury news, Jordan Jenkins is set to undergo shoulder surgery this coming Tuesday to repair a torn labrum and dislocated shoulder, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Jenkins suffered the injury in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts and continued to play through. Opting to get surgery now, Jenkins should be healthy by the time free agency rolls around in March.
