Jefferson has not practiced since having what was called minor knee surgery in August. Earlier in the week, Rams coach Sean McVay said Jefferson isn't dealing with a setback and is "on track, just kind of week-to-week right now." Jefferson will miss at least the next four games. In his absence, the Rams have turned to Ben Skowronek as their No. 3 receiver and have leaned more heavily on tight end Tyler Higbee . Last season for the Rams, Jefferson had 50 catches for 802 yards and six touchdowns.
