Rams May Rest Several Key Starters In Regular Season Finale 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Dec 27, 2017 4:00 pm

The Los Angeles Rams may sit several key starters for their regular season finale against the 49ers.

The Rams clinched the division title and aren't in a position to play for a first round bye.

"Every single game is important," Sean McVay told the media from the team facility in Thousand Oaks, California. "But I think it will provide an opportunity for us to potentially get some guys healthier, rest them, give some other guys a chance to step up. How that affects the guys that are healthy that we want to be smart with is going to be determined as the week progresses. But it is one of those deals where I think you might see us rest some guys."

McVay also mentioned inside linebackers Mark Barron and Alec Ogletree as candidates to not play.

The Rams are currently in line to play the Falcons, but could also end up playing the Seahawks.

"I think really what we've discussed is when you really take into consideration that there's four potential teams that we can play -- all of them are very, very good football teams, and however it plays out, you're going to be on the road the following week," McVay said. "When you look at getting guys healthy, knowing that you are going to be able to play a home playoff game, and then you think about kind of the risk-reward, we feel like that's probably going to be the best decision, is to rest some of those guys for our team."
