LA Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals Thursday injury report

Some of the players have parts that hurt

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams (1-0) will host the Arizona Cardinals (0-1) this Sunday in LA Memorial Coliseum. And just a few days prior to kickoff, there appear to be some key injuries for both teams.

For the Rams, it appears they’ll be without starting inside linebacker Mark Barron (ankle) for the second straight week. The Rams played well in his absence, but they’d love to have him back out on the field. With their long-term goal(s) in mind, it appears they’ll be erring on the side of caution and resting Barron once more.

Michael Thomas, a solid special team’s performer, got injured (hip) in last week’s game, and he also looks like a long shot to play this Sunday.

Todd Gurley, who had a miraculous injury on a day where the team didn’t even practice (he didn’t), is back to 100%. Phew!

For the Cardinals, it looks like they could be without starting offensive tackle Andre Smith (elbow). Starters David Johnson (back), Budda Baker (ankle), and Markus Golden (knee) also appear to be dinged up.
