For the second week in a row, the Los Angeles Rams won’t have Aaron Donald on defense. He’s been ruled out for Thursday night’s game against the Raiders due to an ankle injury, which he suffered in Week 12 against the Chiefs. This is just the second game ever that Donald has missed due to injury.
Terrell Lewis and David Long Jr. have also been ruled out this week; Lewis has a back injury and Long injured his groin on Sunday. Travin Howard’s hip injury will keep him out of the game, too.
Additionally, John Wolford and Troy Hill will be listed as questionable. Wolford has a neck injury that’s been bothering him for a few weeks and Hill is battling a groin issue. If Wolford is unable to play, Bryce Perkins and Baker Mayfield would be the only other healthy quarterbacks on the 53-man roster.
Brandon Powell and Lance McCutcheon are questionable, as well. Powell was not listed on the injury report Monday or Tuesday, so him being questionable is surprising.
For the Raiders, the most notable injury concern is Josh Jacobs. He’s questionable with quad and calf issues, though he was listed as limited each day.
He battled through a calf injury in Week 13 when he was also questionable, so he could once again suit up on Thursday night.
