Los Angeles Rams vs. Minnesota Vikings: Final injury report has DL Dominique Easley, CB Marcus Peters as gameday decisions

Thursday, Thursday, Thursday...

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Oakland Raiders Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams head into Week 4 on Thursday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings with two major gametime decisions looming:

2018 LA Rams Week 4 injury report

Name POS Injury Mon. Status Tue. Status Wed. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Mon. Status Tue. Status Wed. Status Game Status
Dominique Easley DL Knee DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Marcus Peters CB Calf DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Mark Barron ILB Ankle DNP DNP Limited Doubtful
Greg Zuerlein K Groin DNP DNP DNP Out
JoJo Natson WR Hand DNP DNP DNP Out

So we’ll just have to see if the Rams will have the services of CB Marcus Peters and DL Dominique Easley tomorrow.

Interesting note on ILB Mark Barron: this is the first time he’s been a participant at all in practice albeit in limited fashion. Prior to today’s 12th official listed practice designation, he had been listed as “Did Not Practice.” Today was the first time he was able to get in limited work. So maybe Week 5 we see Barron manning the middle?

And CB Aqib Talib was pulled from the report after being placed on injured reserve.

As for the Vikes, their side was much lengthier:

2018 Minnesota Vikings Week 4 injury report

Name POS Injury Mon. Status Tue. Status Wed. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Mon. Status Tue. Status Wed. Status Game Status
Pat Elfein C Ankle Full Full Full -
Holton Hill CB Ankle Full Full Full -
Rashod Hill OT Foot Limited Full Full -
Trae Waynes CB Ankle Limited Full Full -
David Morgan TE Knee Limited Limited Full -
Anthony Harris S Hamstring Limited Limited Limited Questionable
Dalvin Cook RB Hamstring DNP Limited Limited Questionable
Tom Johnson DT Ankle - Limited Limited Questionable
Riley Reiff OT Foot DNP DNP DNP Questionable
Everson Griffen DE Knee/Not Injury Related DNP DNP DNP Out
Marcus Sherels CB Ribs DNP DNP DNP Out

Here’s what our good friends at Daily Norseman had to say:

Cornerback and punt returner Marcus Sherels will miss his second straight game with a rib injury, as the team has already declared him as “Out” for Thursday’s game. Mike Hughes will once again handle punt return duties in Sherels’ absence.

The two biggest names on the list for the Vikings are running back Dalvin Cook and left tackle Riley Reiff, both of whom the Vikings have listed as “questionable” for tomorrow night. Cook missed the game against Buffalo with his hamstring issue, and was limited in practice on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Reiff, on the other hand, has not practiced all week with a foot issue, and for much of the Mike Zimmer regime the rule has been that if you don’t get into the last practice before a game, you don’t play. If Reiff has to sit out, we’re going to have to see how the Vikings will configure an offensive line that’s already had its issues.

We’ll see what we get from the inactives tomorrow prior to the game.
