Friday Injury Report: Little Weekend Worry

Neither the Bucs nor the Rams have too many health concerns heading into their Week 16 confrontation on Sunday, though St. Louis does have one key started listed as questionable on its final official injury report.

Starting left cornerback Cortland Finnegan, one of the Rams’ key offseason acquisitions, is apparently a question mark due to a thigh injury.  Finnegan, who is tied for his team’s lead with three interceptions, has not missed a game this season.  The other five players on the Rams list are considered probable to play, although starting RB Steven Jackson didn’t get in much practice time this week due to an illness.

The Buccaneers will likely be without reserve DE Aaron Morgan, who is listed as doubtful due to a shoulder injury first sustained in Carolina in Week 11.  In addition, CB LeQuan Lewis is questionable as he continues to try to return from a knee injury sustained in Denver three weeks ago.

Here are the full Friday injury reports for both teams:
