  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Torn ACL confirmed

    Higbee was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee following an MRI on Monday, reports.

    Higbee suffered the devastating knee injury in the fourth quarter of the Rams' 24-23 wild-card playoff loss to the Lions on Sunday, when he was on the receiving end of a low hit from Detroit safety Kerby Joseph. The 31-year-old tight end -- who finished the regular season with 47 catches for 495 yards and two touchdowns on 70 targets over 15 games -- now will embark on an arduous rehab process that could extend into the start of the 2024 campaign. At the very least, Higbee won't be ready to participate in OTAs in the spring and could be hard-pressed to get cleared for the start of training camp in late July, given the 6-to-9-month recovery timeline typically associated with ACL surgeries.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Recovering from torn ACL and MCL

    Head coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that Higbee will require surgery to address a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee, Adam Grosbard of The Orange County Register reports.

    McVay mentioned that Higbee could be a candidate to start on the PUP list this summer, as the Rams haven't settled on a firm timeline for when the tight end might be ready to resume on-field work. Given the mid-January timing and severity of Higbee's injury, he could have difficultly gaining clearance for the start of training camp in late July, if not the start of the 2024 regular season entirely. Normally, recovery from a torn ACL entails a 6-to-9-month recovery timeline, but Higbee faces the additional hurdle of rehabbing from a MCL tear. Davis Allen, a 2023 fifth-round pick, could be in position to see additional offseason opportunities as long as Higbee remains absent while recovering from surgery.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Torn ACL feared, MRI coming

    Higbee (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm what is feared to be a torn ACL sustained during Sunday's 24-23 wild-card loss to the Lions, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Higbee suffered a nasty right leg injury late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss due to a low tackle from Detroit safety Kerby Joseph on the Rams' final drive of the night. If an MRI confirms a severe injury for the veteran tight end, Higbee's recovery timetable could significantly impact his availability for the start of the 2024 campaign, for which he remains under contract with Los Angeles. Across 15 regular-season appearances this season, Higbee remained a steady contributor despite occasionally lackluster QB play, compiling 47 catches for 495 yards and two scores on 70 targets.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Hurt late in playoff loss

    Higbee failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 24-23 wild-card round loss to the Lions. He didn't return after getting injured in the fourth quarter, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Higbee stayed down after a Detroit defender dove at his legs. The team didn't have an immediate update on the tight end's injury, which occurred on the Rams' final drive, so it's unclear if Higbee would have returned had LA gotten another possession. The veteran tight end was also nursing a shoulder injury heading into Sunday's season-ending loss, but he'll now have plenty of time to recover before the 2024 season, for which Higbee remains under contract with the Rams.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Suiting up Sunday

    Higbee (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's wild-card contest at Detroit, Sarah Barshop of reports.

    Higbee put together three limited practices this week, which was enough for coach Sean McVay to tell reporters Friday that the tight end should be available to play Sunday, per Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site. Indeed, Higbee is back in action after dislocating his left shoulder during Week 17 action. He'll be taking on a Lions defense that has allowed the 10th-most yards per target (7.7) to opposing tight ends this season.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Status in question for Sunday

    Coach Sean McVay said Higbee (shoulder) will be questionable for Sunday's wild-card game at Detroit, Greg Beacham of the Associated Press reports.

    Higbee sat out Week 18 in San Francisco due to a dislocated left shoulder that he suffered one week prior, but since returning to drills Wednesday, he managed a pair of limited sessions before McVay's comments Friday. McVay added that Higbee should be OK to play this weekend, which won't be confirmed until about 90 minutes before Sunday's 8:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Remains limited at practice

    Higbee (shoulder) was limited in Thursday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Higbee now has cobbled together back-to-back capped sessions after failing to practice in any capacity last Wednesday through Friday due to the dislocated left shoulder that he suffered Week 17 at the Giants. It's unclear if he'll miss just one game as a result of the injury, but Friday's practice report may provide some clarity for his status ahead of Sunday's wild-card contest in Detroit.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Limited Wednesday

    Higbee (shoulder) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Higbee wasn't able to practice at all last week after sustaining a dislocated left shoulder Week 17 against the Giants, so his return to drills this week marks the first noticeable progress in his recovery. His status will continued to be monitored Thursday and Friday to see if he has a chance to return to action for Sunday's wild-card contest in Detroit. If Higbee is sidelined this weekend or limited in any fashion, Davis Allen and Brycen Hopkins are the candidates to fill at tight end for the Rams.

  • Rams' Tyler Higbee: Officially out Sunday

    Higbee (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    After he was unable to practice in any fashion this week, Higbee carried a doubtful designation into the regular-season finale. He'll unsurprisingly sit out Sunday, but if he's able to take a step forward in practice activity during the upcoming week, Higbee could be available to play in the Rams' road playoff game Jan. 13 or 14 in the wild-card round. Davis Allen is expected to serve as Los Angeles' starting tight end Sunday, with Brycen Hopkins working as his understudy.
