St. Louis Rams Vs. Arizona Cardinals: Slow Recovery For Rams

The Rams aren't anywhere close to 100% for Week 13.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

It's not good:

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Trumaine Johnson CB Thigh DNP DNP DNP Out
Andrew Donnal OL Knee DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
Robert Quinn DE Back DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
Greg Zuerlein K Right Hip DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
Case Keenum QB Concussion Limited Limited Limited Questionable
Rob Havenstein T Calf Full Full Full Probable

So, there are some confusing things going on here

Last week, Johnson, Quinn and Zuerlein were all listed as questionable. Now, after another week of full rest, all three have been downgraded with Tru downgraded two levels to being ruled out. On top of the downgrade issue, Robert Quinn's injury turned from a joint hip/back issue into solely a back issue while Greg Zuerlein went from a right groin injury to a right hip one. And Andrew Donnal isn't ruled completely out after injuring his knee just two games ago?

Suffice to say, I'm hesitant to trust Jeff Fisher completely on these matters, trivial as they may be...

In any case, it leaves the Rams thin at a couple positions with starters out. The plus here is that Rob Havenstein is near a return to the field.

The big question though, which I alluded to with the release of the initial injury report this week, is whether the approach of the end of the season affects whether or not you even play the injured Rams again in 2015.

Here's what the Cardinals are dealing with going into Sunday:

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Andre Ellington RB Toe DNP DNP DNP Out
Jerraud Powers CB Calf DNP DNP DNP Out
Frostee Rucker DT Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out
Cory Redding DT Ankle DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
Michael Floyd WR Hamstring Limited Limited Limited Questionable
John Brown WR Hamstring Limited Limited Limited Probable
Larry Fitzgerald WR Ankle Limited Limited Full Probable
Tony Jefferson S Thigh Limited Limited Full Probable
Ed Stinson DT Groin Limited Full Full Probable
Jonathan Cooper G Knee Full Full Full Probable
Patrick Peterson CB Ankle Full Full Full Probable

A bit surprised that Floyd's "Questionable" after getting in limited action all week, but let's see when the inactives come out Sunday morning.
