The New Orleans Saints are hosting the Los Angeles Rams in NFC Championship game on Sunday. The following player are OUT Sunday against the Rams:

  • WR Keith Kirkwood
  • RB Dwayne Washington
  • LB Manti Te’o
  • OL Will Clapp
  • OL Derek Newton
  • TE Benjamin Watson
  • DL Tyrunn Walker

Ben Watson will miss today’s game with an illness (appendicitis) that put him in the hospital. He announced earlier in the season this would be his last year, so if the Saints don't advance to the Super Bowl, he would have played his last game. The Saints recently signed veteran Tyrunn Walker in wake of Sheldon Rankins tearing his Achilles, but he’s out today and the team will roll with three defensive tackles.

Here’s a look at the Rams inactive report:

Kickoff is right around the corner, and obviously the winner advances to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta in to represent the NFC in just two weeks.
