The Los Angeles Rams (5-4) are coming off a disappointing loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10. They’ll head back west to host the Chicago Bears (4-5) in Week 11. But they’ll be far from healthy.
Last Sunday, the Rams lost starting center Brian Allen (MCL) for the remainder of the year. Starting right tackle Rob Havenstein (meniscus) will also miss this weekend — and possibly more. And that’s on top of injuries to other starters lost weeks ago.
Next man up, right? The Rams will certainly have some decisions to make this week regarding shuffling the offensive line as they set to right the ship against the underperforming Bears in prime time on Sunday night.
Here’s a look at the Rams’ injury report for Wednesday:
We were informed this past Monday that Havenstein, DB Darious Williams (ankle), and WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) would all be out this week. No surprise there. So the real question marks are tight ends Tyler Higbee (knee) and Gerald Everett (wrist). It may be too early in the week to grow concerned, especially for Everett who did practice, but it’s something to monitor as the week progresses.
As for Chicago:
