Rams WR Robert Woods has been ruled out vs. Bears
— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 18, 2019
This is a pretty big game for the Rams. They are just 5-4 on the year, and in need of a win. Los Angeles finds themselves in third place in the NFC West, behind the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks.
Woods has been one of the best receivers on Los Angeles in 2019. He has 45 receptions for 566 yards through nine games so far. Woods is one of the more consistent and reliable targets in the NFL and would be extremely important this game.
That’s because the Chicago defense is one of the best in the league. They are not going to make things easy for quarterback Jared Goff.
The Bears are just 4-5 this season, but have finally snapped a losing streak. After starting 3-1, they lost four straight games. In their last game, Chicago beat the Detroit Lions though. Now they’re looking to get back on track and find themselves back in the playoff picture.
With their back against the walls, expect this dangerous defense to be even more dangerous. It sure would be nice for the Rams to have one of their stars available.
However, what’s really important is Woods here. Let’s hope that this is nothing serious. “Personal issues” could be any number of different things. It could be a simple problem, or something much much worse. Hopefully it’s nothing bad and something that can get Woods back on the field as soon as possible.
