The Rams have gotten a lot of bad news on the injury and COVID-19 fronts in the last two weeks, but they shared a couple of positive updates on Wednesday leading up to the season finale.

Micah Kiser has been activated off injured reserve, which means he’s eligible to play in Week 17 against the Cardinals. He’s been out with a knee injury since Week 11, missing the last five games.

Andrew Whitworth returned to practice and has been designated to come off injured reserve, though he hasn’t yet been activated. The Rams now have 21 days to determine whether they will activate Whitworth and make him eligible to play in a game.

Whitworth injured his knee in Week 10 and has been out ever since. Sean McVay said Monday that the team is targeting the first round of the playoffs for Whitworth’s return. He hasn’t been ruled out this week, but the likely scenario is that he’ll be back for the wild-card round, assuming L.A. makes it.
