Odell Beckham Jr. will reportedly make his Los Angeles Rams debut on Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers as the team’s offense suffered a blow during practice.
According to multiple reports, Robert Woods suffered a torn ACL in practice Friday during Beckham’s first full day as a member of the Rams. Woods’ absence appeared to push up the debut of their new superstar wideout.

Rams coach Sean McVay said Friday the team was trying to get him ready and will have to make a decision as to whether to play him Monday.
“We’re going to see how quickly we can get him up to speed with some stuff. We felt like he makes us a better football team. It was a really unique situation being able to acquire a player of his caliber under these types of circumstances. I don’t know if there’s ever been a scenario like this that’s kind of been presented. I think a lot of our guys and players who are very important to me were excited about trying to be able to get Odell on board with us,” McVay said.
