The Rams released an estimated injury report Wednesday, despite players having a day off. Kicker Greg Zuerlein was listed as "DNP" because of his left foot. Zuerlein wore a boot on his left foot Monday, but when asked that evening about player health coming out of NFC Championship game, Sean McVay said "We came out good... Just your typical bumps and bruises after a physical game like that, but we don't anticipate anybody really missing any time."

In hindsight, Sean McVay said he should have done a better job at getting Todd Gurley involved in the NFC Championship game. According to McVay, Gurley - who sat out the final two games of the regular season because of inflammation in his left knee - is healthy. "He's feeling good," McVay said. "He sure looked pretty healthy on that touchdown run where he ran through guys and demonstrated some explosion and what we know about him."
