Los Angeles Rams head into Week 4 with a blank injury report

It continues to be the case that the Rams are incredibly fortunate on the injury front.

Last night, NFL fans were treated to a gruesomely violent game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers that saw half a dozen injuries that included two frightening incidents in which players were stretchered off the field.

I offer that as prelude for this week’s injury report for the Los Angeles Rams who are hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4, because the injury report is really pretty unbelievable:

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 -

I hope Rams fans recognize (and appreciate) how much of an impact this has and how incredible it is. And I mean that in the literal sense. It’s in-credible.

Just look at the Bucs’ side:

Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Name POS Injury Wed. Status Thu. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Devante Bond OLB Hamstring Limited Limited Full -
Breshad Perriman WR Quadriceps Limited Limited Full -
Vita Vea NT Groin DNP Limited Full -
Chris Godwin WR Hip DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Ryan Jensen C Back DNP DNP Limited Questionable
Demar Dotson T Calf - - Limited Questionable
Devin White ILB Knee DNP DNP DNP Out
Jamel Dean CB Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out

That’s three listed as questionable including rising star WR Chris Godwin and starting RT Demar Dotson . And rookie ILB Devin White remains out with his knee injury.

Since relocating to LA, the Rams have been exceptionally fortunate on the health front. That continues to be the case headed into Week 4.

Here’s hoping it extends throughout the regular season into the postseason...
