Taylor Rapp Injury Update For Super Bowl LVI

Taylor Rapp Injury Update For Super Bowl LVI

The Los Angeles Rams have battled their way to Super Bowl LVI after beating the Arizona Cardinals, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the San Francisco 49ers. The team will now be taking on the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday, February 13th, at 6:30 PM EST. The Rams have managed to be successful in the postseason without their starting safety, Taylor Rapp. Rapp sustained a severe concussion in Week 18 of the regular season against the San Francisco 49ers and has not seen the field since. For the Super Bowl, both teams have been dealing with injuries that could inhibit their victory odds, but Rapp has appeared to turn the corner and will be back on the field for the final game of the season.

Rapp’s Importance to the Rams’ Defense

Taylor Rapp has been a leader for this Rams’ defense all throughout the regular season. He helped lead his team to an NFC West title and kept receivers covered. However, the Rams were still successful in their three postseason games after he went down with a very serious concussion in the last regular-season game. Terrell Burgess and Nick Scott took over in the safety slot while Rapp was recovering and did not disappoint. The Rams were also forced to ask Eric Weddle to come out of his two-year retirement to help the team in the postseason. Obviously, the Rams were able to advance to the Super Bowl without Rapp on the starting lineup, but his absence allowed for some close calls downfield. Head coach Sean McVay is very pleased to have his safety back on the field for the last game of the season.

Last Friday, the safety cleared all concussion protocols and has been active on the roaster for a week now. He’s been in practice and has been seemingly back to normal on the field. The team will be very happy to have Rapp back on the field to help aid their journey in taking the first Super Bowl win for the Rams in Los Angeles.
