As luck would have it...we’re pretty lucky!

The Los Angeles Rams are in NYC to take on the New York Giants in Week 9. And following a 2016 season in which the Rams were arguably the healthiest team in the entire NFL, they’re headed for an unbelievably similar output in 2017.

Coming off of a week in which the Rams sent S Cody Davis to IR, it perhaps reinforces just how fortunate the Rams have been on the injury front looking at this week’s injury report:

2017 LA Rams Week 9 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Josh Reynolds WR Concussion Limited Full Full
Mark Barron LB Not Injury Related DNP Full Full
Connor Barwin OLB Not Injury Related DNP Full Full
John Sullivan C Not Injury Related DNP Full Full
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related DNP Full Full
Rodger Saffold G Not Injury Related - DNP Full

It’s hard to overstate how ridiculous this is.

Perhaps the best way is to just juxtapose the Rams’ collective health against that of their opponents who already have 15 players on injured reserve and are looking at a much less fortunate set of circumstances heading into Sunday:

It’s just very hard to believe how fortunate the Rams have been on the injury front.

Here’s hoping it lasts for another two months.
