As the Los Angeles Rams prepare for their Week 2 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, several players are in jeopardy of missing the game due to injury.
Joseph Noteboom returned to practice but Brian Allen and Van Jefferson have officially been ruled out for Sunday with respective knee injuries.
Matthew Orzech was also able to practice Friday on a limited basis but Leonard Floyd did not suit up after suffering a knee injury earlier in the week.
According to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, Floyd is considered questionable for Sunday but appears to have avoided a serious injury:
OLB Leonard Floyd had his knee buckle in practice this week, McVay called it a freak thing – but said that everything checked out fine structurally. Floyd will probably be questionable for Sunday.

If Floyd isn’t able to play against the Falcons, Terrell Lewis and Keir Thomas could take on an increased role in his absence.
Floyd recorded three tackles and recovered a fumble in the Rams’ Week 1 loss against the Buffalo Bills. The 30-year-old has been an important part of the team’s pass rush since signing with the organization in 2021, recording 20 sacks over the last two seasons.
