NFL injury updates, latest league news from Friday, Feb. 4

Cornerback Jalen Ramsey is dealing with a shoulder injury and was designated as questionable on the Los Angeles Rams' Friday injury report.

As Super Bowl LVI is still nine days away, it's too early to be overly concerned as the Rams' and Cincinnati Bengals' injury reports are based on if the game was to be played this Sunday.

Running back Cam Akers (shoulder), cornerback Grant Haley (quadricep), wide receiver Van Jefferson (knee), linebacker Christian Rozeboom (elbow) and left tackle Andrew Whitworth (quadricep) were listed as questionable, along with Ramsey.

Tight end Tyler Higbee (knee) and offensive tackle Joe Noteboom (chest) were listed as doubtful for the Rams.

Akers, Haley, Higbee, Jefferson, Noteboom, Whitworth and Ramsey did not participate in Friday's practice, but safety Taylor Rapp (concussion) was a full participant, as was Rozeboom.

Uzomah and Carman did not practice on Friday, Morgan, Sample and Tupou were limited, and defensive end Trey Hendrickson (illness) was a full participant.
