Besides the offensive line, the Los Angeles Rams have experienced a plethora of injuries in their secondary to begin this season. Taylor Rapp would’ve been a limited participant in practice on Wednesday if the Rams held a practice session.
Safety Taylor Rapp is working through a ribs injury, not mentioned in game or earlier this week by team/McVay but he does say that it shouldn't affect Rapp's status for Sunday.

It remains to be seen when Rapp sustained the rib injury in Week 4 versus the San Francisco 49ers. Even though the injury hasn’t been mentioned until Wednesday, the former second-round pick played on a season-low 50% of the defensive snaps in the Monday night loss to the 49ers.
On a positive note, Rapp’s newly-discovered rib ailment isn’t expected to affect his status for Sunday’s matchup with the Dallas Cowboys, according to Sean McVay. But it’s still something to keep an eye on as the week progresses.
Aside from Rapp, the Rams have endured injuries to Troy Hill, Cobie Durant, David Long Jr., and Jordan Fuller in the secondary. Hill is on injured reserve, Durant and Long have missed the last two weeks, though Long was limited on Wednesday, and Fuller has been ruled out for two-to-four weeks with a hamstring injury.
Los Angeles is hoping Rapp and other members of the secondary are healthy in time to face a Dallas team that is on a three-game winning streak.
