Sounds like we’ve got a trio of Rams to worry about.

The Los Angeles Rams are back home in Week 5 to take on the Seattle Seahawks in a repeat of last year’s home opener that debuted the second era of Rams football in LA.

And unlike last year coming early in the schedule in Week 2, we’re already into October now meaning there are injury concerns to be dealt with as detailed in today’s initial injury report:

2017 LA Rams Week 5 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Jamon Brown G Groin Limited
Connor Barwin OLB Not Injury Related DNP
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related DNP
John Sullivan C Not Injury Related DNP
Sammy Watkins WR Illness DNP
Lamarcus Joyner S Hamstring DNP

OLB Connor Barwin, OT Andrew Whitworth and C John Sullivan are on rest yet again. It sounds as if this could be part of the normal Wednesday routine for the only three players on the roster beyond their 20s.

It’s the other three to consider as we move through the week. G Jamon Brown must’ve picked up the groin injury in practice today. That likely will prevent him from practicing tomorrow, but perhaps he can get back to limited status on Friday to open a door for Sunday.

No clue what’s up with WR Sammy Watkins, but perhaps we’ll get some info from Head Coach Sean McVay in the transcripts when they’re released.

And as for CB Lamarcus Joyner...welp. We’ll see.

The Seahawks though are dealing with a much, much lengthier initial injury report:

2017 Seattle Seahawks Week 5 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status
Rees Odhiambo T Chest Full
Neiko Thorpe CB Ankle Limited
Quinton Jefferson DE Hand Limited
Doug Baldwin WR Groin DNP
Jimmy Graham TE Ankle DNP
Luke Joekel G Knee DNP
C.J. Prosise RB Ankle DNP
Cliff Avril DE Neck DNP
Jeremy Lane CB Groin DNP
Michael Wilhoite LB Hamstring DNP
Richard Sherman CB Groin DNP
Earl Thomas S Knee DNP

That’s nine different Seahawks who were unable to go today including WR Doug Baldwin, CB Richard Sherman and TE Jimmy Graham.

Hell of a way to set out the injury storylines for the week...
