The Los Angeles Rams are on the road in Week 3 to take on the Cleveland Browns on Sunday Night Football, and we’ve got serious concerns on both sides of the injury report.

Today’s intermediate injury report lays out the issues for the Rams:

2019 Los Angeles Rams Week 3 injury report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Malcolm Brown RB Ankle Limited Full Full
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related - DNP Full
Todd Gurley II RB Not Injury Related - - DNP
Aaron Donald DT Back Limited Limited Limited Questionable
Austin Blythe G Ankle DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Tyler Higbee TE Chest DNP DNP DNP Out

Good news to see RB Malcolm Brown a full participant, though that means there’s lingering concern for DL Aaron Donald.

The bigger worries though are toward TE Tyler Higbee and RG Austin Blythe. Neither were able to go today so they’re all but certain to get a game designation tomorrow.

A reminder that a “questionable” designation simply means the team is “uncertain if player will play” while a “doubtful” designation means they are “unlikely to play.” If a player is ruled “out” in the injury report, he won’t play that week. Injuries are required to be reported “with a reasonable degree of specificity in terms that are meaningful to coaches, other club officials, the media, and the public.”

Meanwhile, the Browns’ side is looooooooong:
