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
|Connor Barwin||OLB||Not Injury Related||DNP|
|Andrew Whitworth||T||Not Injury Related||DNP|
|John Sullivan||C||Not Injury Related||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
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...
