Joe Burrow and Puka Nacua were the only two players listed as questionable to play in Monday night’s game between the Rams and Bengals, and both players are officially active. The Rams and Bengals released their list of inactives for Week 3 and neither player was ruled out.
Burrow has been dealing with a calf injury and was uncertain to play against the Rams, but he’s going to give it a go and start the game. Nacua has been battling an oblique injury since Week 1 but just like last week, he’s once again active after being questionable.
Sean McVay always believed he would play against the Bengals so his availability isn’t surprising.
As for the Rams’ other inactives, they once again include Zach Evans and Warren McClendon Jr., as well as Kevin Dotson. Earnest Brown IV is a surprising healthy scratch, so the Rams will be a little bit thinner on the defensive line without him.
Below is the full list of inactives for both teams.
Rams inactives: RB Zach Evans, OL Kevin Dotson, OL Warren McClendon, DL Earnest Brown IV.
Rams elevated to roster: RB Royce Freeman and WR Austin Trammell
