Rams Tight End DNP Wednesday

The Los Angeles Rams have had a rough start to their year and things don't look to be getting any better for them. 

Tight end Tyler Higbee did not practice on Wednesday. 

Coach Sean McVay suggested it's more of a rest day than anything else for Higbee, however, there are reports that the tight end is dealing with some sort of ankle injury. 
A loss to Higbee this week would be a big blow to the Rams' offense, as he is currently second on the team in catches, targets, and receiving yards. In addition, Higbee is currently first among all tight ends in targets and receptions this season, and fourth in receiving yards. 

He has certainly cemented himself as the second option in the Rams' offense and will continue to produce for the rest of season, if he can stay healthy. 

Higbee's situation will be one to monitor heading into the team's Week 6 matchup versus the Carolina Panthers.
