The Los Angeles Rams are heading to London to take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7.

If their Week 6 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars was a bit of a preview of an NFL to come, this is a bit of a future versus the past matchup. While the Rams have three players at least 30-years old, the Cardinals have 15 such veterans on their roster.

It’s worth pointing that out to begin with as we head into the initial injury reports as all three of the Rams veterans are on their weekly rest:

2017 LA Rams Week 7 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Sat. Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Sat. Status
Troy Hill CB Shoulder Full Full Full
Lamarcus Joyner S Hamstring Full Full Full
Connor Barwin OLB Not Injury Related DNP Full Full
John Sullivan C Not Injury Related DNP Limited Full
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related DNP Full Limited
Mark Barron LB Thumb DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Cody Davis S Thigh DNP DNP DNP Doubtful

So that’s the three older Rams on weekly rest while CB Troy Hill and DB Lamarcus Joyner return to full status after both missing on Sunday inactive. That leaves the two for concern as LB Mark Barron and S Cody Davis. Barron was listed as Questionable on the final injury report but was able to play with a knee injury. That he has picked up a thumb issue would seem to be unrelated. Davis on the other hand has a thigh injury that he’ll have to treat as the team gets ready to head overseas. We’ll see how their injuries progress through the week.

Here’s the Cards’ side:

2017 Arizona Cardinals Week 7 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Corey Peters DL Knee Limited Limited Full
Patrick Peterson CB Quad Limited Limited Full
Jared Veldheer T Knee Limited Limited Full
Karlos Dansby LB Hamstring Limited Limited Limited Questionable
Robert Nkemdiche DL Calf Limited Limited Limited Questionable
Olsen Pierre DL Ankle DNP Limited Limited Questionable
Xavier Williams DL Knee DNP Limited Limited Questionable
Andre Ellington RB Quad Limited DNP DNP Questionable

Could be a depth issue on their defensive line if both DL Olsen Pierre and DL Xavier Williams are a no go.

Intermediate reports comin tomorrow.
