The Los Angeles Rams have been one of the healthiest teams in the entire NFL in 2016. Let us give thanks...

Nothing is reinforcing that reality more going into their Week 12 clash on the road against the New Orleans Saints than the initial injury report in which the Rams have just three players listed:

Los Angeles Rams

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Tim Barnes C Foot DNP
William Hayes DE Not Injury Related DNP
Ethan Westbrooks DE Thigh DNP

The Rams have put two players on Injured Reserve in the last week: WR Nelson Spruce (placed last week) and LB Josh Forrest (placed this week). Aside from those recent injuries, things look very good.

DE William Hayes was off for a family illness while DE Ethan Westbrooks and C Tim Barnes were the only injured players on the list.

In Week 12.

Of an NFL regular season.

With every other starter from Week 1 healthy.

That’s just nuts.

Here’s the Saint’ side of the report:

New Orleans Saints

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Dannell Ellerbe LB Quad Full
Delvin Breaux CB Fibula/Ankle Full
David Onyemata DT Knee Limited
Tim Lelito G Calf Limited
Shiloh Keo FS Neck Limited
Senio Kelemete G Triceps Limited
Mark Ingram RB Concussion Limited
Travaris Cadet RB Toe Limited
Terron Armstead T Knee/Quad Limited
Darryl Tapp DE Illness DNP
Daniel Lasco RB Hamstring DNP
Tony Hills T Abdomen DNP

That’s along with the nine Saints on Injured Reserve not including former Rams MLB James Laurinaitis who was waived last week.
