The Los Angeles Rams will be without a key starter on offense during OTAs.

Rams head coach Sean McVay told reporterson Tuesday that running back Kyren Williams is dealing with a “foot issue” that will keep him sidelined for the team’s offseason program this spring. McVay added that Williams is expected to be back on the field for training camp in the summer.

He was declared the game’s offensive MVP. The Rams finished the 2023 season with a 10-7 record, earning a trip to the postseason where they were eliminated in a thrilling 24-23 loss to the Detroit Lions in the NFC Wild Card Round.
