The Los Angeles Rams are prepping to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. In today’s second practice, the Rams came out unscathed with two persisting issues on the injury report:

Connor Barwin OLB Not Injury Related DNP Full Full

Lamarcus Joyner S Hamstring Limited Limited Limited Questionable
Mark Barron LB Knee DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Troy Hill CB Shoulder DNP DNP DNP Doubtful

It looks like DB Lamarcus Joyner could return after missing the last two games which leaves the two major issues with LB Mark Barron and CB Troy Hill. Between the three of them collectively along with the recent release of S Maurice Alexander, the Rams’ defense is undergoing a bit of an on-the-fly makeover. Given how it played in the first month of the season, that’s probably not a horrible thing.

Jacksonville has their own concerns:
