NFL Week Nine injury report roundup: Jalen Ramsey, Von Miller, A.J. Brown questionable for Sunday night
Week Nine of the 2021 NFL season kicked off on Thursday with a win by the Colts and it continues with 12 more games on Sunday, which means that the 24 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday.
The teams playing on Monday night won’t release their final injury reports until Saturday and are not listed here.
Titans at Rams
Friday additions to the injury report are never good news, so Titans WR A.J. Brown (knee) popping up as questionable after not practicing could be troublesome.

It remains to be seen if EDGE Von Miller (ankle) will make his Rams debut as he’s been listed as questionable. CB Jalen Ramsey (not injury related - resting player, knee) is also listed as questionable, but head coach Sean McVay suggested he’ll play.
