Rams Actives/Inactives: QB Matthew to Return, Saints DE Cameron Jordan OUT

The Los Angeles Rams get back their quarterback, but will be without several key players vs. the Saints on Sunday

The Los Angeles Rams are set to be shorthanded once again on Sunday afternoon against the New Orleans Saints at the Super Dome, with several key players being named to the inactive list. 

However, there is some good news for Los Angeles fans, as star quarterback Matthew Stafford is listed as active and expected to play after missing last week with a concussion. 

Some more good news for Stafford and the Rams is that the offense won't have to deal with All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan, who will miss his first game with an orbital bone fracture. 

Unfortunately for Stafford, he will be without his go-to-guy in Cooper Kupp, who was placed on injured reserve this week and will miss extended time after having ankle surgery. 

"Any time that you lose a player like that, you never replace him," McVay said. "But what it does provide is an opportunity for us to learn about a lot of other guys from that receiver room and really our offense in general. So, you have to look at it through that lens."

Here is the full list of inactives for the Rams:

Brian Allen

Shaun Jolly

Tavin Howard

This is LA. Looks matter. And the NFL surely is joining in on the sentiment that the Broncos and Rams being televised on CBS in a vacuum is a bad look.
