Van Jefferson is at the top of the Rams depth chart at wide receiver with Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson, but he wasn’t on the practice field on Saturday.

Jefferson had knee surgery this offseason after dealing with knee issues last year, but Rams head coach Sean McVay didn’t say whether his absence was related to that injury.

“We’re figuring that out right now, working through that . . . l’ll have more information for you later — like I said, I don’t have anything right now,” McVay said, via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times.

Jefferson caught 50 passes for 802 yards and six touchdowns last season and added nine catches for 102 yards in the Rams’ four playoff games.

Tutu Atwell, Ben Skowronek, Jacob Harris, and Brandon Powell are behind Jefferson on the depth chart. The team also has not closed the door on re-signing Odell Beckham Jr., who is recovering from a torn ACL, and an extended absence for Jefferson could make that reunion likelier.

  1. Hmmmm it’s as if they only had young WRs from selecting players In the draft, nahhhh just trade more draft picks

  2. Van Jefferson is one of my favorite daily fantasy picks. Inexpensive but usually gave me good numbers. This is only his 3rd year. It can’t be contract related. I don’t know how involved his knee surgery was,… maybe he doesn’t think he’s ready. More drama for the Rams. Better them than my team.
