LA Rams Hypothetical Thursday Injury Report Brings New Confusion

New, comments

Well this is odd.

It’s Thursday, so you know what that means: hypothetical injury report time.

Remember that the Rams are off today, so the injury report is “an estimation of participation”.

Here’s today’s report:

Los Angeles Rams

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status
Benny Cunningham RB Hip - Limited
Michael Brockers DT Hip Limited DNP
Kenny Britt WR Thigh DNP DNP
Cody Davis S Groin DNP DNP
William Hayes DE Ankle DNP DNP
Robert Quinn DE Shoulder DNP DNP

I love this so much.

So the Rams are estimating that Benny Cunningham would have gotten hurt had they practiced today. Does that mean he got hurt on Wednesday, the Rams’ second practice of the week? If so, does the Thursday report just correspond to Wednesday’s practice? If so, why even put out the “estimation” disclaimer? And does that also mean the Wednesday report is tied to Tuesday’s practice and not a summation of both practices?

Fisher gon Fisher.

In any case, this also helps clarify that Brockers got hurt in practice either Tuesday or Wednesday. His estimated absenteeism from today’s hypothetical practice would indicate as much as opposed to dealing with an injury from Sunday.

That none of the other Rams were upgraded isn’t something we can read much into given how hypothetical it is.

In any case, here’s Buffalo’s side:

Buffalo Bills

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status
Jonathan Meeks S Foot Limited Limited
Stephon Gilmore CB Ankle Limited Limited
Jerome Felton FB Back Limited Limited
Cordy Glenn OL Ankle DNP Limited
Charles Clay TE Knee DNP Limited
Patrick Lewis OL Knee DNP DNP
Cyrus Kouandjio OL Ankle DNP DNP
Corey White CB Shoulder DNP DNP
Greg Salas WR Groin DNP DNP

Final report with game status comes tomorrow.
