New, comments

Well this is awkward.

Welcome to the Los Angeles Rams’ hypothetical injury report, a completely fabricated tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

This week, along with making up a report, the Rams also decided to make up some changes:

Los Angeles Rams

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status
Michael Brockers DT Groin DNP Limited
Todd Gurley RB Thigh DNP DNP
Trumaine Johnson CB Ankle DNP Limited
Lamarcus Joyner CB Back DNP Limited
Nelson Spruce WR Calf DNP DNP

That’s cute.

As always, the Rams offer the same disclaimer for every hypothetical Thursday injury report:

Thursday's report is an estimation of participation as it was a players' day off.

I guess Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher estimated that those three would have been able to get limited work.

If you so choose, you may begin to offer growing concern over RB Just Todd Gurley since he was estimated to have not hypothetically participated in today’s practice that never happened.

Here’s the Jets’ report after an actual practice:

New York Jets

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status
Devin Smith WR Knee Full Full
Brent Qvale T Neck Full Full
Matt Forte RB Knee Limited Full
Nick Marshall CB Illness DNP Full
Ryan Fitzpatrick QB Knee Limited Limited
Breno Giacomini T Shoulder Limited Limited
Brandon Shell T Shoulder Limited Limited
Buster Skrine CB Knee Limited Limited
Brandon Marshall WR Foot Full Limited
Darron Lee LB Ankle DNP Limited
Muhammad Wilkerson DE Ankle DNP Limited
Bruce Carter LB Quadricep DNP DNP
Kellen Davis TE Elbow DNP DNP
Nick Mangold C Ankle DNP DNP
Josh Martin LB Concussion DNP DNP
Marcus Williams CB Ankle DNP DNP

The New York Jets just have a ton to work around. Five players who were complete no-go’s including starting C Nick Mangold. Seven Jets who got limited work including DL Muhammad Wilkerson, WR Brandon Marshall, ILB Darron Lee, LT Brandon Shell, CB Buster Skrine and of course QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Their side of the report, and the resulting decisions on Sunday, are going to be pivotal. Check back tomorrow as we’ll get an actual report from the Rams on JTG & Co.
