The Los Angeles Rams have been the favorites in the Super Bowl ever since they won the NFC Championship Game.
But they will be without one key starter when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday.
On Friday, the Rams placed starting tight end Tyler Higbee on injured reserve.
Higbee missed the first two days of practice this week with an injury he suffered in the NFC Championship Game.
2021 wasn’t Higbee’s best season as he finished with 61 receptions for 560 yards and five touchdowns in 15 games.
But he was top three on the team in receptions, yards and touchdowns and had some big plays in the Rams’ playoff run.
He made nine receptions for 115 yards with seven first downs in their three wins.
The Rams passing attack ranked in the top 10 this past year as quarterback Matthew Stafford had a career season.
On defense, the team had superstars in all three levels with Aaron Donald, Von Miller and Jalen Ramsey creating an elite pass defense.
