The Los Angeles Rams host the Baltimore Ravens in Week 12 in a crucial interconference matchup that the Rams might need to win to keep up with the would-be entrants from the NFC West and North in the playoff picture for the 2020 NFL playoffs.
Here’s the intermediate injury report:
One thing to note is that the team was off today, so this is an estimation of what might have happened had they practiced.
It sounds like WR Brandin Cooks will make his return after missing the last two games due to concussion, the second he suffered in October and the fourth since Super Bowl LII.
Both P Johnny Hekker and WR Josh Reynolds were upgraded to limited participation with whatever they’re dealing with. Again, it’s an estimation, so maybe they would have loaded up on Pepto and made a full go of it.
RB Malcolm Brown is about to become a dad, so he’s got his priorities right to be with his family. He’s supposed to re-join the team on Saturday, but it’s not exactly in his control.
The two injuries to track are RT Rob Havenstein and DB Darious Williams. The Rams have a delicate decision to make with Havenstein (whenever they have to make it) given how he has played this year and how well rookie OT Bobby Evans did against Chicago Bears EDGE Khalil Mack last week. And Williams has logged some work since the remaking of the cornerback depth chart. If he’s out, it likely points to more work from rookie CB David Long, Jr.
Here’s the Ravens’ side:
The Ravens actually practiced so this is perhaps more “accurate”, though with all the upgraded players we’re really just waiting for tomorrow’s designations. They might only be without DT Michael Pierce.
Final report out tomorrow.
