Los Angeles Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth is on track to play in the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers, head coach Sean McVay said Wednesday, according to NFL Network's Bridget Condon.

Whitworth missed the divisional-round victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to a knee injury. Joe Noteboom replaced the veteran, but he's now dealing with a pectoral injury.

The 40-year-old has been a fixture on the blindside for the Rams since joining the team in 2017. Whitworth has started 71 games for L.A., including 15 this season.

Additionally, safety Taylor Rapp is still day-to-day in concussion protocol, McVay said, according to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic. Rapp has been sidelined since Week 18 and needs to be a full participant in practice before being cleared.

The Rams will aim to book their first trip to the Super Bowl since the 2018 campaign.
