Roundup: McVay unsure if Woods will play vs. Ravens

It seems as though Los Angeles Rams receiver Robert Woods might be a game-time decision in Week 12.

During his Saturday afternoon press conference, Rams coach Sean McVay provided an update on Woods, who missed his first game of the season after taking a personal leave of absence hours before facing the Bears in Week 11.

McVay noted that Woods looked good in practice this past week but remained non-committal about whether he would play Monday night against the Ravens in the wake of his personal matter, saying, "We're just taking it one day at a time right now."

Woods has yet to record a touchdown in 2019, but has accumulated 45 receptions (71 targets) for 566 yards, and 12 rush attempts for 71 yards.

Although Woods' status is up in the air, he was not listed on the team's injury report. Offensive tackle Rob Havenstein (knee) and defensive back Darious Williams are out for Monday night and linebacker Natrez Patrick (illness) was listed as questionable.
