New, comments

Here’s your initial injury concerns to keep in mind as we gear up for Week 11.

Heading into Week 10, the Los Angeles Rams had just one player ruled out against the New York Jets: WR Nelson Spruce. In game, DE Eugene Sims and CB Lamarcus Joyner suffered injuries, and of course DE Robert Quinn was hospitalized to start the week though he has since rejoined the team.

So knowing that was the landscape heading into Tuesday’s first practice for Week 11, here’s your initial injury report following today’s second practice of the week:

Los Angeles Rams

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Tim Barnes C Foot DNP
Lamarcus Joyner CB Ankle DNP
Robert Quinn DE Illness DNP
Eugene Sims DE Concussion DNP
Nelson Spruce WR Calf DNP

Short, as expected. No idea on the severity of the Tim Barnes injury. Lamarcus Joyner I’d expect will be a go. We’ll have to wait and see on Eugene Sims who is in the concussion protocol. And as for Robert Quinn, I don’t know that I’d be comfortable letting a guy play NFL football less than a week removed from a hospital visit.

Here’s the Miami Dolphins’ side of the report:

Miami Dolphins

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Mike Hull LB Knee Full
Anthony Steen C/G Neck Full
Jermon Bushrod G/T Shoulder Limited
Jarvis Landry WR Shoulder Limited
Mike Pouncey C Hip Limited
Kenny Stills WR Calf Limited
Isa Abdul-Quddus S Ankle Limited
Branden Albert T Wrist DNP
Xavien Howard CB Knee DNP
Jelani Jenkins LB Knee/Hand DNP
Jason Jones DE Knee DNP
Mario Williams DE Ankle DNP

The key here is clearly the five who didn’t get any action today, with four on the defensive side. We’ll see how things progress on their side throughout the week with a weather eye on LT Branden Albert.

Stay tuned, fam.
