At SoFi Stadium, the LA Rams and Denver Broncos square off in a Christmas game. Even though this game won’t likely have much of an impact as the season comes to an end, it’s still worth watching.
Update on Cooper Kupp and Russell Wilson’ injury status
On Friday, the Denver Broncos’ injury report was updated to include tackle Calvin Anderson as a new name. Randy Gregory, Latavius Murray, Dalton Risner, K’Waun Williams, and Courtland Sutton are among the players whose participation in Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams is in doubt.
Gregory will be a game-time decision, according to head coach Nathaniel Hackett, who noted that he felt soreness in his knees after last week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Significant player Russell Wilson is not listed on the injury report at all. He will most definitely perform on Christmas Day.
Wilson has already passed the concussion protocol set forth by the NFL, but the team decided to err on the side of caution and benched the quarterback for the second time this year in a Week 15 victory over the Cardinals. In Wilson’s place, Brett Rypien received the start; however, this Sunday, with Wilson deemed ready to go, Rypien will revert to his backup position.
Kendall Hinton is the only player who has been declared officially out as of yet.

Regarding Rams’ Cooper Kupp’s injury, according to Andrew Siciliano of DirecTV’s “NFL Sunday Ticket,” Sean McVay, the head coach of the Rams, said on Tuesday that he finds it “hard to imagine” a scenario in which Cooper Kupp (ankle) returns from injured reserve before the end of the season.
