Los Angeles Rams will be without their leading receiver for some time.
Head coach Sean McVay announced on Monday that Robert Woods will be out “a couple of weeks” with a shoulder injury suffered in Sunday’s loss to the Vikings.
“Clearly from a production standpoint the last couple weeks, Woods has played like a complete receiver,” McVay said. “So we’re losing a significant player.”
McVay said there was a chance the injury could threaten Woods’ season and require surgery.
“But I think we got good, positive news back on that,” McVay added.
Woods leads the Rams with 47 receptions for 703 yards and four touchdowns, including 16 catches for 252 yards and two scores in his last two games.
Woods was tackled by Vikings safety Harrison Smith on a 15-yard reception in the final minutes, driving the weight of both players down on Woods’ left shoulder. He left the stadium wearing a sling.
