Rams star cornerback Jalen Ramsey and tight end Tyler Higbee will not be available for Monday night’s game against the Arizona Cardinals because they have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, a person with knowledge of the situation said.
Ramsey and Higbee are the fourth and fifth players to be placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list in the last few days, joining running back Darrell Henderson, starting right tackle Rob Havenstein and rotational cornerback Donte Deayon.
The loss of Ramsey and Higbee further handicaps a Rams team (8-4) that is trying to catch the Cardinals (10-2) in the NFC West.
Ramsey has lined up all over the field for the Rams and is a candidate for defensive player of the year. Higbee is among quarterback Matthew Stafford’s top targets.
