It’s almost a given that if the LA Rams play a game of football, there will be injuries. That’s just how this season seems to be scripted, and what was once newsworthy for its uncommon occurrence is becoming more like “water is wet,” to the LA Rams fans. And to be honest, the frequency of injuries is more than most fans can track easily.

While news of another Rams player falling to injury may not be so radically uncommon for the Rams organization this season, the names of the players are always intriguing. In the latest batch of names of injured players, the LA Rams have now lost two key and young contributors from the team.

More LA Rams roster changes

One is a young receiver who has struggled to stay healthy since arriving at the Rams in the 2021 NFL Draft, while the other is a young defensive lineman who has become very important to the Rams’ defensive line. The receiver is special teams specialist Jacob Harris. The defender is undrafted defensive lineman Marquise Copeland.

Two more players were injured. But the Rams are running out of slots to reinstate players from IR now, so only players who are lost for the season will be placed on the IR list. But, Harris’ injury is a torn pectoral much that needs surgery. Surgery means that Harris will be out for the duration of the season, and that resulted in:

So the Rams opened another 53-man roster spot. Harris has been targetted just once on offense, a six-yard reception. A more significant loss is that of Copeland, who has one quarterback sack and 23 tackles in a limited rotational role so far this season.

The Rams have four games remaining, so it will be crucial for the Rams to find help, particularly for the defense.
