The Los Angeles Rams are heading to London to take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 7, and the concern for two defensive starters laid out in yesterday’s initial injury report have only solidified today:

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

The three older Rams match their regular participation; C John Sullivan is normally a partial participant on Thursdays, so don’t let that throw you off.

The focus remains on LB Mark Barron and S Cody Davis. With S Maurice Alexander released 10 days ago and S John Johnson aka Johnny John Jon Johnson Johnstone already in the starting lineup, it would make for an interesting decision if DB Lamarcus Joyner can’t go 100% for the entire game coming off of a three-game absence between the two likely candidates of S Marqui Christian or DB Blake Countess. As for Barron, it’d either be LB Bryce Hager or LB Cory Littleton. Given Littleton’s value on special teams, it might be easiest to let Hager supplant Barron on defense to maximize Littleton’s teams’ value; otherwise, you get Littleton at ILB and need to give his special teams snaps away. Decisions, decisions.

Here’s Arizona’s side:

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

If RB Andre Ellington can’t go, it’s likely just more from RB Adrian Peterson with a sprinkling of RB Kerwynn Williams.

Final practice and game status out tomorrow.
