Van Jefferson, a third-year wide receiver for the Rams, has been largely sidelined following offseason knee surgery.

The team has placed him on injured reserve as he works his way back.

The move has caused concerns as outsiders become increasingly unsure of Jefferson's genuine standing.

Jefferson enjoyed a great season as a sophomore.

After only accumulating 220 yards in his debut year, he started every game and caught 50 receptions for 802 yards and six touchdowns.

For the Super Bowl LVI champions, Jefferson finished second in receiving yards and touchdowns.

Stafford has used Kupp, tight end Tyler Higbee, free agent signing Allen Robinson, and Skowronek as his main targets in Jefferson's absence.

Brandon Powell, Tutu Atwell, and undrafted rookie Lance McCutcheon have all served as backup receivers so far this season despite not seeing any action.

Cornerback Grant Haley has been promoted from the practise squad to the active roster to take Jefferson's place.
