Rams’ Odell Beckham Jr. injured but was scheduled to play on Sunday

Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a hip injury during the Rams’ loss to the Green Bay Packers, but the issue is not expected to affect his status for Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars at SoFi Stadium, coach Sean McVay said on Sunday Monday.

McVay said Beckham, who caught a 54-yard touchdown pass in the 36-28 defeat at Lambeau Field, “had his back examined and he’s doing well on that front.” But Beckham suffered from what McVay called the “back hip pointer”.

“We’ll be able to treat and stuff that,” McVay said during a video conference call with reporters.

Beckham’s role increased significantly in his second game since he signed with the Rams on November 12, three days before the game against the San Francisco 49ers.

In that 31-10 loss to the 49ers, Beckham played 15 of 55 snaps and caught two passes for 18 yards.

Against the Packers he played 61 of 62 snaps. He was sighted 10 times and caught five passes for 81 yards.

While running back, Darrell Henderson suffered a quadriceps strain against the Packers that could limit his training this week, McVay said.
