The Los Angeles Rams open the 2019 regular season by traveling to face the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

On the injury report front, there’s nothing to concern yourself with from the Rams’ side:

Good. Great. Grand. Wonderful. NO YELLING ON THE BUS.

Let’s keep it this way all year.

For the Panthers though, there are legitimate aftereffects:

Starting EDGE Bruce Irvin has been ruled out as has rookie OT Greg Little.

Here’s how they reacted over at Cat Scratch Reader, the SB Nation community for Panthers fans:

The Carolina Panthers have released their final injury report for the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams, and two players have been ruled out for Sunday’s game: edge rusher Bruce Irvin and left tackle Greg Little. Both players missed practice all week.

The Panthers will be thin on the offensive line with Little still in the concussion protocol. Daryl Williams will start at left tackle, but there’s a huge lack of depth behind him should anything go awry. (Please stay healthy, Daryl!)

With Irvin being ruled out, one would expect either Marquis Haynes or rookie Brian Burns to get the start in his place. Regardless of who starts, we should see plenty of Burns on Sunday depending on the personnel group the Rams use on offense.

The good news for Sunday is that Trai Turner is good to go despite missing practice earlier in the week with a groin injury. The Rams have one of the best defensive fronts in the league, so having as many healthy offensive linemen as possible available on Sunday will benefit the Panthers’ offense.
