The Los Angeles Rams will take on the Detroit Lions on the road in Week 6, and there’s a good chance they’ll be light on the defensive side thanks to our initial injury report:
Los Angeles Rams
That’s the three defensive line starters not named Aaron Donald and your CB1 not to mention a starting guard. The impact here, obviously, could be huge. And suffice to say, it’s not hard to tie a direct correlation between the absence of those D-line starters in Week 5 and Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy’s season-high 150-yard performance on Sunday.
Here’s Detroit’s side:
That’s plenty for the Lions to have to deal with. Two running backs after Ameer Abdullah was placed on IR to start the year. Offensive firepower in TE Eric Ebron and WR Anquan Boldin. Offensive line support in the guards, Laken Tomlinson and Larry Warford. And three defensive linemen of their own...
Yeah, we’re gonna have to pay attention to the development of the injury report this week.
