Tomorrow the Rams play a division rival in the San Francisco 49ers and it will be more important than ever to be healthy for the big game. The Rams suffered a few injuries last week, and the 49ers seem to be getting healthier at the right time. Here was the Friday injury report for both teams, and their statuses for Sunday’s game.
St. Louis Rams
G Harvey Dahl (knee): Questionable
S T.J. McDonald (Shin): Questionable
CB Brandon McGee (Foot): Questionable
LG Chris Williams (Head): Probable
CB Trumaine Johnson (Head): Probable
RB Zac Stacy (Head): Probable
LB Will Witherspoon (Non-Injury related): Probable
The status of Stacy, Williams, and Johnson were in question all week after suffering concussions against the Bears, but after going through the proper testing and precautions it looks like they will be good to go.
San Francisco 49ers

CB Tarell Brown (ribs): Out
LB Ahmad Brooks (stinger): Questionable
TE Garrett Celek (hamstring): Questionable
DT RayMcDonald (ankle): Questionable

On a side note for the 49ers, this will be wide receiver Michael Crabtree’s first start this season after tearing his Achilles in the offseason. He will more than likely be limited, but he will play.
Of the 49ers injury report tight end Garrett Celek, defensive tackle Ray McDonald, cornerback Tarell Brown, guard Mike Iupati and wide receiver Quinton Patton are concerns for playing on Sunday, the rest should be good to go.
When it gets this late into the season almost every player is hurting in some way, shape, or form, it’s the players and teams that overcome those injuries that do well in the postseason.
