Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson will not play Thursday night against the Buffalo Bills.

Jefferson, who has not practiced since having “minor” knee surgery in August, was ruled out for the game on Wednesday’s final injury report.

Coach Sean McVay said last month that Jefferson’s injury is to the same knee he played through an injury on toward the end of the 2021 season but in a “different area.” Jefferson told reporters at the start of training camp that he had surgery during the offseason and was 100% healthy.

Last season for the Rams, Jefferson had 50 catches for 802 yards and six touchdowns.

In Jefferson’s absence during training camp, receivers Ben SkowronekTutu Atwell and Brandon Powell have seen increased snaps.

Jefferson is the lone player on the Rams’ Week 1 injury report.
