NFL: Banged-up Rams ace Higbee a doubt

The Los Angeles Rams could be without banged-up tight end Tyler Higbee, who has been held out of practice this week, for next week's Super Bowl.

The Rams are 10/21 on the Money Line when they host the 7/4 AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium a week on Sunday.

Higbee struggles with knee injury

Higbee failed to practice on Wednesday or Thursday this week as the 29-year-old, who suffered a knee injury in the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers, needs time to heal.

Higbee has emerged as a reliable underneath target for Rams' quarterback Matthew Stafford and had caught two passes for 18 yards against the Niners before leaving the game.

Listed as the second tight end on the Rams' depth chart, Kendall Blanton has stepped up of late - catching a touchdown pass in the Divisional Round win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and making several key plays in last weekend's NFC title game.

Running back Cam Akers also did not participate in practice on Thursday because of a shoulder injury, but Rams head coach Sean McVay didn't seem too worried about the second-year starter's absence.

Bengals move indoors

Meanwhile, the Bengals have moved their practice sessions to the indoor bubble at the University of Cincinnati campus.

It's the first time the Bengals have practiced indoors in three seasons under coach Zac Taylor and will help prepare the team for the conditions at SoFi Stadium.

"This is the first time we've been playing inside or in warm weather," Taylor told reporters, via ESPN. "This decision was made a long time ago."
