Injury Report 10/23: Hill, Brown, Hager non-participants as Rams get ready for Bengals

ATLANTA – Rams CB Troy Hill (hamstring), RB Malcolm Brown (ankle) and LB Bryce Hager (shoulder) were all non-participants in the first practice leading into Sunday's game against the Bengals in London.

Hill was elevated to a starting role after Los Angeles placed Aqib Talib on IR last week. Brown, meanwhile, has been bothered by an ankle injury since last week.

Hager's injury is one he suffered earlier prior the Rams' game against the 49ers in Week 6, but he was able to play against the Niners after a logging a full participation in the third and final practice. He was inactive against the Falcons.

Additionally, LB Clay Matthews (jaw) remains a non-participant. Earlier this month, Rams head coach Sean McVay said that he expects Matthews' broken jaw to sideline him for "at least the next four to six weeks," with a return after the bye week as the most likely scenario.

For the Bengals, starting CB Darqueze Dennard (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, while WR A.J. Green was limited.

On Monday, Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson said Cincinnati head coach Zac Taylor has not yet ruled Green out for Sunday's contest; however, Hobson also said Taylor isn't comfortable playing Green "until he practices full go."

Below are the full injury reports for both teams.
