Injury Report 10/15: Rams carry no injury designations for Week 6 at Giants

Injury Report 10/15: Rams carry no injury designations for Week 6 at Giants

None of the Rams players listed on the final injury report carry injury designations for Sunday's game against the Giants at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. (10 a.m. pacific time, FOX).

For the Giants, quarterback Daniel Jones and wide receiver Sterling Shephard do not carry injury designations for Sunday's game. The Giants announced via their Twitter account Sunday that Jones (concussion) had been cleared to play against the Rams.

However, running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and wide receiver Kenny Golloday (knee) has been ruled out for the contest. Linebacker Justin Hilliard (ankle) was placed on Injured Reserve Friday and is also out, while cornerback Rodarius Williams was placed on Injured Reserve Thursday in wake of suffering a season-ending torn ACL against the Cowboys last week.

Offensive lineman Ben Bredeson (hand), wide receiver Darius Slayton (hamstring), offensive lineman Andrew Thomas (foot), and wide receiver Kadarius Toney (ankle) are considered questionable for New York.

Below are the final injury reports for both teams.

Week 6 Preview: Rams ready and focused for meadowlands matchup with Giants

There's a 2020 game I've thought about a lot this week, and I wonder if it's crossed your mind, too.

No, not the narrow win over the New York Giants at SoFi Stadium. But rather, the crushing defeat at the hands of the New York Jets in Week 15.

I don't mean to imply the Los Angeles Rams lost that day because they overlooked a winless opponent. Whatever the reason for falling to an inferior squad, it was just the latest NFL installment of "any given Sunday."

As the Rams enter a stretch of three straight contests against teams with losing records, hopefully, last year's gut-punch will serve them well. Because for the rest of the month, there are no undefeated showdowns. No prime time showcases. No division games. Just their desire to uphold the Rams standard, play to their potential and pursue greatness.


Emotional Rollercoaster

Five games in the rearview mirror, and looking back, the start to the season was more draining than perhaps we appreciated in real-time.


SoFi Stadium debut in front of fans; first road trip; defending Super Bowl Champions in town; NFC West opener against undefeated Arizona; Thursday Night Football in Seattle.

That mini-bye at 4-1 couldn't have been better placed.

Now, five more tests before the open date in Week 11, and only one of those challengers currently has a winning mark (the Tennessee Titans).

Take nothing for granted, yes. But bank wins if you're able.

Do The Math

Our guest on this week’s Rams Revealed was former Ivy League calculus tutor Michael Hoecht, who articulated the team's hunger in a way that left me convinced.

"Everybody in the film room goes into it saying, 'We left a ton of plays on the field'," the first-year defensive lineman told us while reviewing the Seattle win.

"There are so many things (in all three phases) we're only going to continue to get better and better at. And we're only going to get smarter and smarter at. We're only going to hit harder and harder throughout the season."

Head coach Sean McVay summarized the attitude going to New York this way: "We've got the wrong guys if I have to convince them that they need to be ready to show up in this three-hour window of time."

Who Can Fill for DWill?

As you've likely heard, the Rams will be without starting corner Darious Williams for the next three games.

As McVay said this week, you don't replace Williams with just one person. A few options come to mind as the Rams look to fill the void of a defensive player so valuable, they placed a first-round tender on him this offseason.

Over the next three Sundays, we may see Terrell Burgess effectively make his season debut in the slot. Or someone with veteran experience like Dont'e Deayon could be promoted...

    Concerned about Rams coach affiliation with...
    by badmoforamfan
    Gruden. Have read a couple articles (Yahoo/NY Times) that name drop senior McVays name. I absolutely do not condone and find his (Grudens) comments deplorable. I sure hope that our coach wasn't involved in any of these e-mails. Kinda throws some dirt of McVays path to the Rams. I am hopeful that Sean took the high-road and did not engage. Probably not the correct forum for this, but being that I am concerned how affects the LA Rams....

    Also. Do you really think that Fisher truly received pressure from Goodell to draft Michael Sam?

    "It's hard to stop either one of us when we're fresh":
    by RamDez
    "It's hard to stop either one of us when we're fresh": Darrell Henderson Jr. and Sony Michel tandem impactful for Rams offense

    Week 5 provided the Rams their first extensive look at and running back Sony Michel could potentially complement one another in Week 5 against the Seahawks.

    The result: A combined 28 carries for 119 yards (good for 4.3 yards per carry) and two touchdowns in a 26-17 Los Angeles win at Seattle.

    "I think so," Rams head coach Sean McVay said postgame last week, when asked if that was the carry share he was seeking between both players from a complementary standpoint. "I think when you end up saying 14 and 11, that's a good balance, but they did a nice job tonight. Each game is kind of it's own entity, but I thought tonight they spelled each other, did a great job. (Assistant head coach/running backs coach) Thomas Brown does an excellent job with that group."

    As the Rams navigate the remainder of the season, finding that proper balance will be important to the overall balance of the offense.

    McVay in training camp said it's never been about ability, just availability with Henderson, who has dealt with season-ending ankle injuries toward the end of the 2019 and 2020 seasons and also missed one game this season due to a rib cartilage injury. Meanwhile, Michel was acquired in late August and didn't see meaningful snaps until Week 3 against the Bucs in wake of Henderson's rib injury.

    It's helpful that both players are also adept at pass protection, which helps both stay on the field. They also are capable of breaking off explosive runs, as seen by Michel's 15-yard run and Henderson's 29-yard run against the Seahawks. Both can also excel inside the 5-yard line, as evidenced by Henderson's 5-yard touchdown run and Michel's 2-yard touchdown run.

    "It's hard to stop either of one us when we're fresh," Henderson said after Wednesday's practice. "So the main plan is to keep one, keep everybody fresh and when we fresh, we going to show everybody what we capable of doing. Now we just gotta be consistent and be able to bring it every week."


    "I can raise my level of play," Michel said after Thursday's practice. "It makes me a better player, makes him a better player individually, and it helps the team ultimately."

    Being able to have multiple running backs to count on his a commonality among the majority of the league's top rushing teams – the Browns, Cowboys, Titans, Ravens and Bills all deploy at least two with regularity.

    Rams quarterback Stafford said he "definitely" thinks the Rams have a difference-making 1-2 punch in Henderson and Michel.

    "Both those guys do a little bit of everything really well, in my opinion," Stafford said after Wednesday's practice. "It's not like we have one guy that...
