Earlier: The Los Angeles Rams just released their inactive list for tonight’s game against the Chicago Bears. Surprisingly, Robert Woods was on it.
Woods was not expected to miss tonight’s game and was on the team’s injury report leading up to the game. No reason has been given for his late scratch.
Wide receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion) was already ruled out prior to the game, as was tackle Rob Havenstein (knee) and defensive back Darious Williams (ankle).

We’ll keep you posted on the latest regarding Woods once we get more information behind his absence.
The Rams and Bears are scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.
Both teams desperately need a win to stay alive in the NFC playoff race.
Update: Woods is out for a personal matter, according to the Rams.

Hopefully whatever issue Woods is dealing with, it is not serious. We should find out more in the coming days, if not by the end of the night.
