The Los Angeles Rams (3-0) are set to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2) in Week 4. The Rams received some positive news today regarding the injury status of two key starters - TE Tyler Higbee and RG Austin Blythe - both of whom missed last week. They returned as full participants and are set to return to action this weekend.

Here is the full report for Thursday, Sept. 26:

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 -

It looks as though veteran CB Aqib Talib got a bit of a breather on Wednesday, but was back as a full participant today. DT Michael Brockers obviously wasn’t feeling so hot today (Illness), so he took a day of rest. We’ll hope to see him back to 100% in the coming days. Lastly, veteran OT Andrew Whitworth, who requires no practice, did not. Nothing to see here, folks.

Here’s what Rams’ head coach Sean McVay had to say following today’s practice session:

Injury wise, we’re in good shape. Higbee’s on pace to be able to play, as is Austin. Those guys will be participants today. Michael Brockers is sick, so he won’t participate today, but hopefully it’s just a 24-hour bug and he’s feeling better. Other than that, we’re feeling pretty good.

As it usually is, the Rams opponent has a longer list of those ailing. Here’s a look at the Bucs’ injury report for Thursday:
