St. Louis Rams - New England Patriots - Week #8 Injury Report

Scott Kane-US PRESSWIRE

The injury reports for both teams about to face off in London is fairly extensive, though most of New England's can be taken with a bit of skepticism. They put every player who has even a small boo-boo on the list, or at least it seems that way to me. The Rams are looking good at the half way point in the season, and with a bye week coming up, their injury list should shrink prior to the San Francisco 49ers game in week #10...

No word on Danny Amendola, but I can't see him playing with the prospect of a two week break ahead. The two names on the Rams list that are odd? Brandon Gibson and Chris Givens. Jeff Fisher said Gibson was dealing with a "bug', and should be ready to go on Sunday. Why Givens didn't practice is unclear, so we'll have to see if he shows at game time?

The New England defensive secondary has enough injuries to make me think back to last year for the Rams. They are severely weakened right now. The Patriots running back corps is depleted too. Brandon Bolden had shown sparks, but the rushing duties will be spread between their two remaining running backs of the roster: Stevan Ridley, Danny Woodhead and Shane Vereen. They are quite a tough pair to try and contain for an improving Rams rush defense. The player to watch on this list is offensive guard Logan Mankin.
