Injury Report: St. Louis Rams Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The biggest injury question mark from the Rams perspective is cornerback Cortland Finnegan. Finnegan sat out of practice all week nursing a thigh injury and has been deemed questionable for Sunday’s game in Tampa Bay. If Finnegan weren’t able to go, it would likely mean the Rams would start two rookies at cornerback in Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson.
Running back Steven Jackson was limited on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday with an illness. Jackson is also listed as questionable.
Illness seemed to be going around the Rams training facility, as cornerback Bradley Fletcher and defensive end Robert Quinn also missed a day of practice with an illness. Both returned to the practice field Thursday, and both are probable for the game.
Center Scott Wells, who, after missing two months with a broken foot, is now dealing with a knee injury, was a full participant at Friday’s practice as well. He is listed as probable. Linebacker James Laurinaitis missed Wednesday with a back injury but is also listed as probable.
There is little in the way of notable injuries on the Buccaneers side. It is likely both teams will be at relatively full strength when they square off at noon tomorrow.
