Van Jefferson is dealing with a knee injury, will see specialist on Monday

The Rams Wire

Van Jefferson was absent from training camp practice on Saturday for the Los Angeles Rams and many fans were wondering why. After failing to practice on Saturday, it’s been revealed that Jefferson is dealing with a knee injury that will require him to visit a specialist on Monday.

With Odell Beckham Jr. still a free agent while recovering from a torn ACL, the Rams were expecting to enter the upcoming season with Jefferson as their No. 3 wideout behind Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson. In an increased role in 2021, Jefferson hauled in 50 receptions for 802 yards and six touchdowns.

It remains to be seen how severe Jefferson’s knee injury is and if he’ll need surgery ahead of the regular season. There will probably be more information on Jefferson’s status moving forward on Monday after he visits a specialist to come up with the best solution for his recovery.

If Jefferson does need to get surgery, the Rams could look to second-year wideouts Tutu Atwell, Jacob Harris, and Ben Skowronek to replace his production until he can return.
