Rams vs. Packers injury report: Starting LT Wayne Hunter did not practice

The Rams practiced without starting left tackle Wayne Hunter, who was out with a back injury.

Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE

The St. Louis Rams were without starting left tackle Wayne Hunter for the second straight day due to a back injury. First, it was thought that Hunter sat out Wednesday's practice for precautionary reasons, but by not practicing on Thursday, there is now some concern that he may not be able to play against the Green Bay Packers.

If Hunter is unable to go on Sunday, then look for Joseph Barksdale to step into the starting left tackle spot. Barksdale just recently joined the Rams after being claimed off of waivers from the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 27.

Another option could be to slide Quinn Ojinnaka over one spot from left guard to left tackle and putting in Shelley Smith at left guard. All of that potential movement will become more clear after Friday's practice.

The Rams received some good news on Thursday as starting cornerback Janoris Jenkins returned to practice fully after getting Wednesday off to rest his back.
