Well, there’s plenty to concern Los Angeles Rams fans in 2016, heading into the season as well as beyond. But in the wake of Thanksgiving, it’s worth recognizing there are things to be thankful for.

One of them being the team’s health.

Yet again, the Rams go into a game looking very fortunate on the injury report, this time for Week 12 facing the New Orleans Saints:

Los Angeles Rams

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
William Hayes DE Not Injury Related DNP Limited Full -
Todd Gurley RB Illness - - DNP -
Ethan Westbrooks DE Thigh DNP DNP Full Questionable
Tim Barnes C Foot DNP DNP DNP Questionable

On its face, the addition of Rams RB Just Todd Gurley is a bit worrisome. Reports suggest it was just a bug going around and he should be a full go on Sunday.

DE William Hayes returned from whatever personal issue was affecting his family. Here’s hoping it was resolved in as comfortable a manner as possible.

As for DE Ethan Westbrooks and C Tim Barnes, we’ll have to see how they report on Sunday when the inactives are released. Remember that as the game is in Nola, the inactives will come out some time around noon ET or so prior to the 1pm ET kickoff.

Should Barnes be unable to go, C Demetrius Rhaney would be the likely call-on, though with other offensive line changes possible, it’s quite possible that some unforeseen five would staff the group.

As for the Saints, they’ve got their own concerns:

New Orleans Saints

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

That’s a full eight Saints listed as “Questionable.”

As I mentioned, it’ll be an early one for the Rams. We’ll have the inactives when they’re released on Sunday.
