The Los Angeles Rams are on the road in Week 3 to take on the Cleveland Browns on Sunday Night Football, and they’re going to be doing so without TE Tyler Higbee:

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

So Higbee’s a no go. Not surprising given that he was literally coughing up blood following the injury on Sunday. DL Aaron Donald and RG Austin Blythe are both listed as questionable, though Rams Head Coach Sean McVay dismissed the idea of AD missing out. Blythe, however, will be a gametime decision.

Cleveland’s side is much, much longer:

Three starters are out in S Christian Kirksey, TE David Njoku and S Damarious Randall. Njoku was actually placed on IR not long ago. And wow, that’s a lot of players listed as questionable including key players like CB Greedy Williams, CB Denzel Ward, S Morgan Burnett, WR Rashard Higgins, RT Chris Hubbard, LB Adarius Taylor, S Sheldrick Redwine and DE Chris Smith.

They haven’t posted their reaction over at Dawgs By Nature, but if/when they do I’ll get it in here.

We’ll know who among the players listed questionable will be ruled out when we get the inactives roughly an hour prior to kickoff.
