|Player||Position||Team||Injury||Thursday Practice Participation||Final Designation|
|Joe Noteboom||OL||LAR||Chest||Did not participate||Out|
|Tyler Higbee||TE||LAR||Knee||Did not participate||Out|
The three most prominent players on the injury report are Rams running back Cam Akers, Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth and Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, but none of the three are in any danger of missing the same on Sunday.
However, Higbee is a big blow for the Rams who will now turn to Kendall Blanton as their top tight end.
For the Bengals, head coach Zac Taylor said Friday afternoon that the only player on his injury report for Friday is tight end CJ Uzomah who is also on track to play.
Uzomah is a big part of the Bengals offense and was quoted this week as saying there was no chance he was going to miss the biggest game of his life. He is listed as questionable in case something changes before kickoff.
No other Bengals are in danger of missing the game.
