As the Los Angeles Rams get set to take on the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11, we knew part of the circumstances of this game were going to revolve around the injury front given the extensiveness of the injury report we received yesterday.

After today’s second official practice of the week, we got a bit more information from the official injury report setting up the borderlines of this clash:

2017 LA Rams Week 11 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Robert Quinn OLB Illness Limited Full Full
Rodger Saffold G Ankle DNP Full Full
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related DNP Limited Full
Matt Longacre DE Back DNP Limited Full
Mark Barron LB Not Injury Related DNP DNP Full
John Sullivan C Not Injury Related DNP DNP Full

Lamarcus Joyner S Hip DNP DNP Full
Troy Hill CB Hamstring DNP Limited Full Questionable
Derek Carrier TE Hamstring DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Malcolm Brown RB Knee DNP DNP DNP Out

The news on both OLB Robert Quinn and LG Rodger Saffold is likely the most crucial info. That S Lamarcus Joyner remained a non-participant though is going to incur a severe focus on tomorrow’s report.

As for Minnesota, they didn’t have any changes:

From what I’ve heard from Vikings fans on their podcast as well as when I invited Daily Norseman’s Arif Hasan on Turf Show Radio, (Obi Wan hand wave) these are not the injury concerns you’re looking for.

Suffice to say, it’s the Vikings not listed on the injury report that warrant more substantial concern on their side. For us, it’s about tomorrow’s report and what kind of gameday decisions that might belie.
