Heading into Week 2 of the 2017 Regular Season, the Los Angeles Rams are looking at a pretty notable personnel change: the return of DE Aaron Donald.

While HC Sean McVay is working him back into the fold, he may have some other personnel issues to deal with as he prepared the Rams to face his previous employer, the Washington Football Team:

2017 LA Rams Week 2 Injury Report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Maurice Alexander S Shoulder DNP Full Full -
Connor Barwin OLB Rest DNP Full Full -
Kayvon Webster CB Shoulder DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Andrew Whitworth T Rest DNP Full Full -

So that’s two with a shoulder issue and two on rest. Clearly the rest is part of that preventive maintenance program that McVay has referenced before instituted by Head Athletic Trainer Reggie Scott and Assistant Athletic Trainer Tyler Williams as detailed by ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez recently.

Washington on the other hand had a much longer list:

2017 Washington Week 2 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 Doctson WR Hamstring Limited Limited Limited Questionable
D.J. Swearinger S Back Limited Full Full -
Bashaud Breeland CB Elbow Full Full Full -
Jamison Crowder WR Hip Full Full Full -
Junior Galette LB Hamstring Full Full Full -
Spencer Long C Knee Full Full Full -
Morgan Moses T Ankle Full Full Full -
Chris Thompson RB Back Full Full Full -

Interesting to see so many players listed who were full participants. Perhaps we’ll get some clarity from today’s report.

The Rams are coming off of a 46-9 trouncing of the Indianapolis Colts while Washington was unable to execute the comeback over the Philadelphia Eagles.
