New, comments

Week 10 could require some shuffling of the depth chart due to injury.

The Los Angeles Rams are back home in Week 10 set to take on a Houston Texans team looking for a reason to buy into the 2017 season following the injury to QB Deshaun Watson.

The Rams had some injury news of their own this week losing RB Malcolm Brown to an MCL sprain, though we learned from Head Coach Sean McVay that it won’t require surgery.

Today though, we added two new names who will likely miss the game via the final injury report:

2017 LA Rams Week 10 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Connor Barwin OLB Not Injury Related DNP Full Full -
Mark Barron LB Not Injury Related DNP Limited Full -
John Sullivan C Not Injury Related DNP Limited Full -
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related DNP Limited Full -
Derek Carrier TE Hamstring DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
Robert Quinn OLB Illness DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
Malcolm Brown RB Knee DNP DNP DNP Out

So while McVay and his staff have to make a decision about a backup running back in either Lance Dunbar or Justin Davis, they’ll also have to looks at replacements at OLB for Robert Quinn and the TE3 spot for Derek Carrier. Matt Longacre is listed behind Quinn on the team’s official depth chart, but I’d expect to see some more action from rookie Samson Ebukam as well. As for Carrier, there’s no automatic selection to be had. I’d guess the Rams just roll two-deep at tight end with Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett, but perhaps there’s an outside shot at promoting Johnny Mundt from the practice squad this weekend.

Here’s the Texans’ report:

The length is surprising, but the Texans are really just missing two after placing TE Ryan Griffin on injured reserve: ILB Dylan Cole and DE Joel Heath.
