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

The Los Angeles Rams are set to host the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round of the 2019 NFL playoffs. As the initial injury reports show, the Cowboys have much more to worry about though there’s one standout for the Rams:

Lamarcus Joyner S Ankle Full Full Full -
Todd Gurley RB Knee Limited Limited Full -
Blake Countess DB Concussion Limited Limited Full -
Ethan Westbrooks DL Thigh - Limited DNP Questionable

RB Todd Gurley is still limited in practice despite missing the last two weeks of the regular season and enjoying a first-round bye. Not great, Bob. I asked if we should be worried about Gurley’s knee back in mid-December, so at this point we should have hit our functional worry load. The limited practice designation shouldn’t change anything.

For what it’s worth, S Lamarcus Joyner similarly sat out Week 17, and he was a full go today. So that’s good.

As for the Cowboys, they’ve got a ton more to work with:

Yeesh.

Here’s what they had to say about their injury report over at Blogging the Boys, the SB Nation community for fans of the Cowboys:

As expected, Cole Beasley and Blake Jarwin didn’t practice. Jason Garrett mentioned both would sit out today with ankle injuries. Garrett also thought that Xavier Su’a-Filo wouldn’t practice, but he was able to get in a limited practice.

Noah Brown and Maliek Collins were unable to go, Brown because of an illness and Collins because of a combination of illness and his ankle. David Irving continues not to practice.

In a little bit of a shocker, Dak Prescott showed up on the injury report with a knee injury but he was a full participant and appears to be fine.

Tavon Austin, Tyrone Crawford, Zack Martin, Tyron Smith and Darian Thompson were all limited but it doesn’t appear any regressed from their previous injuries.

Intermediate report out tomorrow with a final injury report and game designation coming on Thursday.
