Robert Woods injury update

Woods injured his knee in November during practice one day after the Rams agreed to terms with wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Woods jogged for the first time the week of the Super Bowl. It felt good, and he’s on track to be cleared by minicamp in the spring.

“It’s going really well,” Woods told Pro Football Network at the Super Bowl. “Initially, you hear ACL injury, and you think it’s over. Nah. Being able to recover from the surgery and be able to have a great rehab and team to get me back right, I’m progressing really well. My first day back jogging was today. Milestones are really big.”

Woods anticipates a full recovery by the spring. However, he emphasized the need for patience before he feels like he’s more than medically cleared and actually ready to play football again.

Woods caught 45 passes for 556 yards and 4 touchdowns in nine games last season. He had at least 930 yards the previous three seasons, including two 1,000-yard campaigns. Next year, he’ll join A.J. Brown and Ryan Tannehill in Tennessee’s passing attack.

Woods’ role for Rams in Super Bowl

As his teammates prepared for the Super Bowl against the Cincinnati Bengals, Woods offered encouragement. The Rams lost to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl three years ago and were determined for a different outcome this time.

“I would say it’s been really huge because the guys are saying, ‘Bro, you’re a part of this, too, you’re a part of this success,'” Woods said. “They’ve made me feel welcome, not being the guy who is out. We’ve been doing this for weeks now. I let them know what I see, whether it’s a broken play or a successful play. I think now that we’ve gotten to this point where we’re getting ready for the Super Bowl, we’re just making sure we win it this time.”
