As the Los Angeles Rams get ready to take on the Washington Football Group of Men in Week 2, the Rams are looking at a shoulder injury of concern:

Against the Indianapolis Colts sans QB Andrew Luck in Week 1, the Rams were in a good position of strength in the secondary. Now there, questions are beginning to surface. CB Kayvon Webster, a first-year Ram, didn’t play a snap in the preseason. CB E.J. Gaines was traded to the Buffalo Bills along with a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft for WR Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round pick next spring. So the Rams could be looking at a lack of depth we were perhaps unprepared for as recently as a little more than a month ago.

As for Washington, they’ve seemingly got a singular issue of their own:

WR Josh Doctson’s two-year NFL career has been marked by injury, so to see him here is no surprise. Fans are understandably frustrated by his unavailability.
