According to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, Rams TE Tyler Higbee had offseason knee surgery. Per Rodrigue, Higbee is “working back up to full football activity.” Higbee, 29, posted 61-660-5 in 15 games last season. He projects as a top-20 fantasy TE.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) has been placed on IR and will miss the Super Bowl. That leaves TE Kendall Blanton as Los Angeles' starter. He caught all 5 of his targets for 57 yards after Higbee exited the NFC Championship.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. We've removed him from our Super Bowl projections and bumped up TE Kendall Blanton.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. The team is still holding out hope that he'll be able to play in Sunday's Super Bowl, but that's starting to look unlikely. TE Kendall Blanton stepped up to catch all 5 of his targets for 57 yards after Higbee exited the NFC Championship.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee avoided "significant damage" to his knee in Sunday's NFC Championship win over the 49ers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Higbee's availability for the Super Bowl is "up in the air," per Rapoport, but it at least sounds like Higbee's injury won't impact his 2022 season.

Update: HC Sean McVay called Higbee's injury an MCL sprain. Consider the TE truly questionable for Super Bowl Sunday.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee left in the 1st half of the NFC title game with a right knee injury. Initially called questionable, he was downgraded to out by the middle of the 3rd quarter. We'll see about the severity of his injury.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been activated from the COVID list. He figures to return for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings, although he'll carry elevated risk after missing most of the practice week.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been placed back on the COVID list. He, of course, missed last week's game vs. the Cardinals after a false positive test. He presumably actually tested positive this time and is now unlikely to play vs. the Seahawks on Tuesday night. With Higbee out last week, TE Kendall Blanton caught 2 of 3 targets for 29 yards.

This week's Seahawks-Rams game has been moved from Sunday to Tuesday, according to multiple reports, as the Rams deal with a rash of COVID positives. This game won't be on the DFS main slate but will still count for Week 15 in season-long leagues. We'll see if RB Darrell Henderson, WR Odell Beckham and WR Tyler Lockett are able to clear COVID protocols in time for the game.

Update: This game will kick off at 7 pm ET on Tuesday.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee has been activated from the COVID list. He was forced to miss Monday night's game vs. the Cardinals due to a false positive -- a tough break for fantasy owners who needed him. Higbee will be back for Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks and could play an expanded role if WR Odell Beckham misses with his COVID.

The Rams have added TE Tyler Higbee to the COVID list, knocking him out for tonight's game against the Cardinals. That leaves Kendall Blanton and Brycen Hopkins at TE for the team. Blanton led Hopkins 5-3 in routes last week. Hopkins, however, was drafted earlier (Round 4 vs. undrafted), enjoyed the much more productive receiving career in college and brings a 75th-percentile speed score and 73rd-percentile SPARQ-x score for the position, according to PlayerProfiler.com. If you need a desperation fill-in TE, we'd go with him. Higbee has averaged just 5.2 targets per game for the year, so we don't expect his absence to significantly impact the fantasy outlook for anyone else on the team. We'll see whether he can make it back for the team's Week 15 game against Seattle.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee injured his shoulder in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Seahawks and is officially questionable to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Higbee returned after missing just a few plays.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He’ll continue splitting TE duties with Gerald Everett.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (elbow) did not practice all week. He’s listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the 49ers, and HC Sean McVay labeled him a game-time decision. But fantasy owners shouldn’t be counting on Higbee this week. His absence would turn TE Gerald Everett into a viable spot starter.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee is dealing with an elbow injury, HC Sean McVay said Wednesday. This doesn't sound like a serious issue, but Higbee's status will be worth monitoring over the next few days. His absence would make TE Gerald Everett a viable Week 12 streamer vs. the 49ers.

11:11am EST 11/1/20

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He wasn’t a reliable fantasy option before this injury and obviously won’t be at 100% today. Higbee’s presence knocks TE Gerald Everett out of consideration, though.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is "pushing to play" against the Dolphins today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But with the bye coming up and Johnny Mundt filling in capably, it might make sense to rest Higbee again and let him heal. Higbee could sit for those reasons," Rapoport adds. We'll get Higbee's official status around 11:30 am ET. TE Gerald Everett will be a viable spot starter if Higbee is inactive after posting a 4-28-1 line on 5 targets last week.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. HC Sean McVay called him a game-time decision on Friday. Higbee was an unreliable fantasy option before this injury and obviously won’t be at 100% if he suits up this weekend. If he sits, TE Gerald Everett will be a viable spot starter.

Rams TE Tyler Higbee (hand) is inactive for tonight's game against the Bears. That should mean a boost in playing time for TE Gerald Everett. He's a fine fill-in if you were hoping to use Higbee tonight -- and a nice play in 1-game DFS contests.
