The LA Rams roster may be beaten up but they’re not beaten, yet.

The LA Rams have been getting injured at a ridiculously nightmarish rate. While it helps to explain why the team is struggling in many ways, it can only be viewed as an excuse. Players get injured, backups step up, and coaches compensate by altering the game plan, and adapting their strategy to the new roster limitations.

Well, players are getting injured. That’s a fact. But it’s up to you to decide if you believe whether the backups are stepping up and whether the coaching staff is compensating by altering their game plans.

The Rams got another dose of dismally depressing developments today. The latest news on OC/RG Coleman Shelton is a high ankle sprain and DB Jordan Fuller is a re-aggravated hamstring muscle.

The bad news? The Rams are now down two more players and here comes the defensive juggernauts, the Dallas Cowboys.

Hope lingers

Holding it together until this team is back on the mend may not thrill fans right now, but it’s likely the best option out there. It looks like the month of October 2022 will be the most challenging month for the LA Rams, but it will pass. Meanwhile, the Rams are already 0-1, must face the Dallas Cowboys, take on the Carolina Panthers, and then have the chance to heal and rest up during their BYE week. The Rams close out the month by facing the San Francisco 49ers. I would not be the least bit surprised if the LA Rams only win one game this month.

But just as October appears to be dismally bleak, November may bring a chance for the LA Rams to rebound. As players return to health, the LA Rams take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that always seems to bring out the best of the Rams. Then the Rams face the Arizona Cardinals, another opponent that the Rams have had success against in the past.

This team may be getting healthy and hot at the right time once more. The schedule continues to have tough opponents, but the Rams will be getting almost all of the injured players back with the exception of Logan Bruss and Tremayne Anchrum.

It will be a tough patch through the month of October. But if the Rams roster gets healthy, their schedule still has a route to the playoffs. In the meantime, hunker down and hope that the team suffers no more injuries. The LA Rams are not done yet. They are just fighting through a very tough patch in the road.
