The Los Angeles Rams were once again without two starters at practice on Thursday as both Darrell Henderson Jr. and Leonard Floyd were non-participants. Henderson is dealing with a rib injury suffered in Sunday’s win over the Colts, while Floyd has an ankle injury that popped up this week.
Before practice Thursday, Sean McVay called it “kind of a nagging thing” and that the Rams hope treatment can prevent it from being an issue all season. That’s not the most encouraging comment from the coach, but hopefully the injury isn’t too severe that it keeps him out of game action.
Below is the full injury report, which also lists Jacob Harris as being limited Thursday, while Andrew Whitworth and Aaron Donald returned to practice after getting rest days Wednesday.
Sean McVay pre-practice on Leonard Floyd’s ankle injury: it’s “kind of a nagging thing,” but they’re trying to get a grasp on it to prevent it from lingering. McVay said Floyd is responding well to this point to the new treatment processes & procedures the Rams have implemented. https://t.co/BmiXu1kWLd
