The final injury report for the game should look familiar to Rams fans:
Just like last week, the injury report consists of TE Gerald Everett being designated “out” and RT Rob Havenstein designated “doubtful.”
While there might be a little surprise over Hav being “doubtful” despite a full week of practice, there shouldn’t be for Everett missing this one. Rams Head Coach Sean McVay dropped the “day-to-day” label on him on Wednesday that seemingly indicates a player won’t be available.
Here’s hoping nobody is “day-to-day” next week.
As for the Cowboys:
So despite a long injury report, just three designations.
LB Leighton Vander Esch is out with LB Sean Lee “questionable.” That’s a tough duo of injuries.
For the Cowboys, linebacker is an issue. They will once again be without Leighton Vander Esch who is still trying to recover from a neck injury. Compounding matters is his replacement, Sean Lee, could also miss the game. He is listed officially as questionable with thigh and pectoral injuries. Lee was looks to be a game-time decision.
Joining Lee as questionable is reserve wide receiver and special teams player Ventell Bryant. He was held out of practice today with a knee injury.
Michael Bennett was held out of practice today but he is expected to play. Also expected to play are the players who have made up a long list of limited participants at practice this week including La’el Collins, Zack Martin, Byron Jones and Chris Jones.
