The Los Angeles Rams are coming out of the bye week with the benefit of having the extra time to heal up. As such, the major injury concerns for CB Trumaine Johnson and DT Michael Brockers are starting to clear up:
Los Angeles Rams
So good news on Tru and Brock who were out against the Giants in London in Week 7. Of course, this report verifies that the Wednesday injury reports are actually tied to the Wednesday practice, and not an initial report tied to the Rams’ initial practice on Tuesday. As Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed, both Tru and Brock were held out of Tuesday practice and then got in work today, noting that Tru was limited at Wednesday’s practice “only because we held him back.”
The two concerns now are DE William Hayes and WR Nelson Spruce.
Hayes is out with an ankle injury which could push things around on the line. Should Brah Brah Bojangles miss time, DEs Eugene Sims and Matt Longacre would be in line for the playing time.
Spruce, on the other hand, suffered an injury in the hypothetical practice leading up to Week 7. No clue how much time he’ll miss now, though the fact he hasn’t been placed on injured reserve suggests he’ll at least have a shot to make his NFL debut in 2016.
Here’s Carolina’s side of the report from yesterday:
A little strange to see someone listed as a full participant on the initial injury report. Usually that means they’re, yanno, not injured.
That’s seven Panthers who didn’t get in work on Wednesday for one reason or another.
We’ll have the hypothetical Thursday injury report up later tonight.
