In Week 13, the Los Angeles Rams are on the road to Phoenix to play the Arizona Cardinals.

With today’s final injury report, the concerns heading into Sunday revolve almost exclusively around the running back position:

2017 LA Rams Week 13 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Nickell Robey-Coleman CB Thigh Limited Full Full
Josh Reynolds WR Ankle DNP Full Full
John Sullivan C Not Injury Related DNP Limited Full
Kayvon Webster CB Ankle DNP Limited Full
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related DNP DNP Full
Mark Barron LB Not Injury Related DNP DNP Full
Tyler Higbee TE Illness DNP DNP Full
Lance Dunbar RB Knee Limited Full Full Questionable
Malcolm Brown RB Knee Limited Limited Full Questionable
Connor Barwin OLB Arm DNP DNP DNP Out
Robert Woods WR Shoulder DNP DNP DNP Out

We learned yesterday that OLB Connor Barwin would be replaced in the starting lineup by rookie OLB Samson Ebukam and that WR Robert Woods will potentially be available in Week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles though “a more realistic target would beWeek 15 against the Seattle Seahawks.

So the real news today is that both RB Malcolm Brown and RB Lance Dunbar will be Sunday decisions as being listed Questionable. Brown is recuperating from an injured MCL while Dunbar himself is coming back from a minor knee injury that held him out last weekend. Should neither be available, the Rams will turn again to UDFA rookie RB Justin Davis. That might be the wise choice if for nothing else to let Brown and Dunbar heal up another week.

Here’s Arizona’s side:

Our friends over at Revenge of the Birds, the SBN community for fans of the Cardinals, seemed not overly concerned about the Thursday report but we’ll see if they post about their side today.

Inactives should drop about an hour prior to kickoff.
