Missing starters

While the news is improving each and every day right now, the LA Rams are by no means out of the woods just yet. Since the Rams COVID list had swelled to 29 players, even getting players off the list five at a time would take a full week to get everyone off the list. The players are not coming off the list that rapidly.

Here are the names of starters who remain on reserve as of the publication of this article:

Offense (2)

OT Rob Havenstein
TE Tyler Higbee

Defense (2)

OLB Von Miller
S Jordon Fuller

Of the starters, the absence of OT Rob Havenstein will be one of the more difficult absences to overcome. Without his presence, the Rams will need to place a new and unfamiliar player in the position.

Another starter whose absence will hurt the team is that of Jordan Fuller, who has been gradually growing into the role of defensive back and defensive signal-caller for the team. His absence will likely mean that ILB Ernest Jones will take on the play-calling responsibilities for the defense.

light. Must Read. Can someone please tell me who are these 9 new players added to the LA Rams roster?

Key role players (4)

OT Joseph Noteboom
OLB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo
DB Terrell Burgess
DB JuJu Hughes

Other players (3 IR, 3 rostered, 4 PS)

DL Sebastian Joseph Day (IR)
LB Antoine Brooks
OL Jamil Demby (IR)
DB Jake Gervase
TE Johnny Mundt (IR)
TE Jared Pinkney
DB Tyler Hall (PS)
DL Jonah Williams (PS)
ILB Christian Rozeboom (PS)
OLB Justin Lawler (PS)

One silver lining from the delay is that the LA Rams have no players appearing on the Injury Report for Week 15.  From that same injury report, the Seattle Seahawks appear to have five players with less than full participation at practice.  The Rams are just one day from Week 15, so let’s peek to tomorrow.
