New, comments

The Rams have two outside linebackers that aren't suiting up today.

The inactives are out for today's Rams-Packers game, and there's one position of concern:

  • SS Maurice Alexander
  • OLB Jo-Lonn Dunbar
  • QB Sean Mannion
  • OLB Alec Ogletree
  • DL Ethan Westbrooks
  • OG Cody Wichmann
  • OT Darrell WIlliams

This list also omits DE Eugene Sims and RB/ST Chase Reynolds who are back after suffering knee injuries in Week 1. There's certainly some doubt as to how much the former will play having been listed as "Questionable" on the final game injury report. The real angle is that having dealt with the Ogletree injury by signing Dunbar, the Rams are without both this week. So that means either the likely boost of playing time from S Mark Barron (again, the Alexander injury is mention-worthy here) or some combination of Akeem Ayers, Cameron Lynch, Daren Bates or Bryce Hager among the linebacking depth.

Here's what the Packers are looking at:

  • WR Davante Adams
  • S Morgan Burnett
  • CB LaDarius Gunter
  • QB Brett Hundley
  • S Sean Richardson
  • ILB Jake Ryan
  • G Lane Taylor

We knew this was going to be an impactful list for the Pack based on the injury report, but we also got late news yesterday that Adams and Burnett were downgraded to "Doubtful" after the final injury report.

Notably, this list does not include OT Bryan Bulaga who was listed as "Questionable" with a knee injury. He's been named the starter today at RT.
