The Los Angeles Rams released their final injury report Friday and every player who was in question to play Sunday against Indianapolis was a full participant. The player to monitor most this week was defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph-Day, but the report indicated that he was a full participant in Fridays practice.

Rookie wide receiver Ben Skowronek practiced fully this week as well, will he be making his Rams debut this weekend?

Regardless, it’s great news for the Rams to have no injuries as they travel to Lucas Oil Stadium to take on an underrated Colts team looking to bounce back. On the other end of the spectrum, the Colts are dealing with an abundance of injuries and have already ruled out starting cornerback Xavier Rhodes and starting right tackle Braden Smith.

All-Pro guard Quenton Nelson who is arguably the best offensive lineman in football is questionable for the game but it is trending in the direction that he will play. Aaron Donald’s matchup against Nelson is one of the most anticipated matchups of the 2021 season as they have never faced off before. Nelson spoke with the media today about the matchup stating:

“This is what you prepare for in the off-season, matchups like these. It’s a matchup you look forward to. Lot of respect (for Donald).”

But will Quenton be completely healthy out there? He admitted early Friday that his back issue is somewhat chronic that will not go away. That does not bode well going into a game against the best defensive player in football.

The Colts have a ton of players who are questionable and will be a game-time decision come Sunday. Meanwhile, the LA Rams are coming to town in full force and looking to become 2-0 in their first road game of the season.
