St. Louis Rams Vs. San Francisco 49ers: Initial Injury Report Sets Return For Starters

New, comments

The Rams went into their Week 7 game against Cleveland a bit light. Here's how they're starting the prep week for San Francisco.

The St. Louis Rams went into their Week 7 clash with the Cleveland Browns on a lengthier injury report than per the 2015 norm. With DE Chris Long added to OLB Alec Ogletree as the definite no-gos, RB Tre Mason and TE Lance Kendricks were ultimately held out as well after being listed as "Questionable." WR Tavon Austin was able to make the game despite being listed the same. And DE Robert Quinn picked up a knock mid-game after coming into the game as "Probable" with knee issue.

Here's how the Rams' Wednesday injury report lays out the concerns after two practices this week:

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
T.J. McDonald S Shoulder DNP
Chris Long DE Knee DNP
Tre Mason RB Ankle DNP
Robert Quinn DE Knee DNP
William Hayes DE Thigh DNP
Nick Fairley DT Illness DNP
Lance Kendricks TE Thumb Full
James Laurinaitis LB Elbow Full

It's, perhaps, an inauspicious start to the week. Bear in mind, this report is after two practices despite it being the first report of the week. To have three defensive ends and a tackle on the list, aside from the obvious quality of those four players, is a legitimate concern.

Here's San Fran's Wednesday list:

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Navorro Bowman LB Shoulder DNP
Carlos Hyde RB Foot DNP
Tony Jerod-Eddie DT Not Injury Related DNP
Alex Boone G Shoulder/Knee Limited
Ahmad Brooks LB Shoulder Limited
Eric Reid S Chest Limited
Joe Staley T Shoulder Limited
Colin Kaepernick QB Right Hand Full
Erik Pears T Back Full

Only three players held out completely for the Niners.

The Rams' hypothetical Thursday report will be out later.
