Los Angeles Rams at Chicago Bears: Initial injury report remains stellar

New, comments

The Rams head into December football with a very thin injury report.

The Los Angeles Rams are set to finish their two-game road swing against the Chicago Bears in Week 14.

The initial injury report, as per usual, reinforces just how fortunate the Rams are in the health department given that we’re now into December football:

2018 LA Rams Week 14 injury report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
John Sullivan C Not Injury Related - DNP Full -
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related - DNP Full -
Marcus Peters CB Ankle Full Full Full -
Malcolm Brown RB Shoulder DNP DNP DNP Out

And that’s it.

The Rams have lost RB Malcolm Brown for the rest of the 2018 season with a shoulder injury. How Rams Head Coach Sean McVay juggles the backup duties between his two options of RB Justin Davis and rookie RB John Kelly is TBD, but it’s the only injury influence coming out of Week 13’s 30-16 win over the Detroit Lions as CB Marcus Peters looks to be healthy to start the week.

Meanwhile, the Bears’ injury report centers around one important name:

2018 Chicago Bears Week 14 injury report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Benny Cunningham RB Ankle Limited Full Full -
Sherrick McManis DB Hamstring Limited Full Full -
Mitchell Trubisky QB Right Shoulder Full Full Full -
Bilal Nichols DT Knee - - Limited Questionable
Eddie Jackson DB Shin - - DNP Questionable
Deon Bush DB Hamstring DNP DNP DNP Doubtful

QB Mitchell Trubisky was a full go in practice today; Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy didn’t go as far as to say he will play on Sunday, but I think it’d be surprising not to see him do so at this point.

And we’ll have to see if former Rams RB Benny Cunningham is able to go after missing out last week.
