Packers-Rams Injury Report: Cooper Kupp questionable, Aaron Donald set to play

Green Bay is pretty much at full strength, while the Rams still have some questions to answer about key players on offense.

On Tuesday, the Los Angeles Rams held a walkthrough practice to begin preparing for Saturday’s game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Had they practiced, however, all-everything defensive lineman Aaron Donald would not have participated, according to their injury report.

Even on Wednesday, when the Rams held a true practice three days out from kickoff, Donald was not on the field. That ran a bit counter to some comments he made to the media that suggested that he was ready to go and saw him express his frustration about all the attention being paid to his injury:

On Thursday, however, with the teams holding their final practices of the week, Donald was on the field for the Rams. More notably, Donald has no injury status on the formal injury report, indicating that he will be playing — even if he is at less than 100% — in Saturday’s game.

Less certain, however, are the statuses for a few other key Rams players. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp and left guard David Edwards are both questionable for Saturday’s game, while quarterback John Wolford — who started last Saturday in the Wild Card round — is out, to be replaced by Jared Goff in the starting lineup.

As for the Packers, the week off has done them plenty of good on the health front. Only one player appears with an injury status this week. That is defensive lineman Kingsley Keke, who is doubtful with a concussion. Otherwise, it’s all hands on deck for Saturday, provided that the team has no additional positive COVID-19 tests between now and kickoff.

Here are the injury reports for both teams for the Divisional Round.
