The Los Angeles Rams are back in LA to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4, and things look pretty solid on the initial injury report:

2019 Los Angeles Rams Week 4 injury report

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Austin Blythe G Ankle Limited Full Full -
Tyler Higbee TE Chest Limited Full Full -
Aqib Talib CB Not Injury Related DNP Full Full -
Michael Brockers DL Illness - DNP Full -
Andrew Whitworth T Not Injury Related - DNP Full -
Todd Gurley RB Not Injury Related - - DNP -

So both RG Austin Blythe and TE Tyler Higbee missed the Week 3 action on Sunday night against the Cleveland Browns, but both were at least participants in practice today albeit in limited fashion. Maybe most welcome is the absence of DL Aaron Donald from the report. He picked up an oblique issue in Week 2. For that to seemingly be behind him is quite nice indeed.

And Rams fans should feel quite good about things on the health front when looking at the Bucs’ side:

Yeesh.

Here’s what they had to say about it over at Bucs Nation, the SB Nation community for Buccaneers fans:

These were certainly some notable names.

Linebacker Devin White was held out yet again with his MCL sprain, while receiver Chris Godwin sat out due to a hip issue.

Vita Vea is dealing with a groin injury and center Ryan Jensen has a back injury. The Bucs need to get healthy in a hurry before they travel to Los Angeles to take on the Rams.

We’ll have to see how things shape over over the next two days.
