New, comments

Good news from the Rams’ final practice today on the injury report front.

The Los Angeles Rams finished their final practice today for the wild card round of the playoffs against the Atlanta Falcons.

And while we’ve had a couple names of concern that Head Coach Sean McVay suggested should be good to go on Saturday, it’s the final injury report out today that helps confirm those hopes:

Name POS Injury Tue. Status Wed. Status Thu. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Tue. Status Wed. Status Thu. Status Game Status
Mark Barron LB Achilles Limited Limited Full
Blake Countess DB Concussion DNP Limited Full
Pharoh Cooper WR Shoulder DNP DNP Full
Michael Thomas WR Ankle DNP DNP DNP Doubtful

So it’s just WR Mike Thomas that will likely be unavailable. Good news otherwise.

And for Atlanta, it’s a similar wave of good news:

Name POS Injury Tue. Status Wed. Status Thu. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Tue. Status Wed. Status Thu. Status Game Status
Adrian Clayborn DE Calf Limited Limited Full
Taylor Gabriel WR Hamstring Limited Limited Full
Alex Mack C Calf Limited Limited Limited
Levine Tiololo TE Knee Limited Limited Limited
Devonta Freeman RB Knee DNP Limited Limited
Julio Jones WR Ankle/Ribs DNP Limited Limited
Andre Roberts WR Knee/Ankle DNP DNP Limited

Not a single player received an injury game status designation.

Here’s what Dave Choate had to say about the report over at the Falcoholic, the SB Nation community for fans of the Falcons:

It’s all hands on deck, and you should expect the Falcons to make extensive use of Devonta Freeman and Julio Jones, who were both listed on the injury report earlier this week, as they try to get past a solid defense. Both will be particularly critical in reversing the team’s recent red zone woes—actually, that’s arguably a year-long issue—because they’re two of the most dynamic players the Falcons have.

The status of everyone on defense was never really in doubt, but they’re equally critical. This is the first time I can remember where the Falcons haven’t had a single soul listed as questionable on their injury report, and health genuinely matters this late in the year.

The seven-man inactive roster is a requirement in the playoffs just like regular season inactives. We’ll get that on Sunday prior to gametime.
