Notable injuries, news from Sunday's Week 10 games

Injuries and news we're monitoring around the league on this Week 10 Sunday:

  • Los Angeles Rams offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, who was carted off the field with a knee injury against the Seahawks, suffered a torn MCL and is headed to injured reserve, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source following test. In addition to the torn MCL, Whitworth damaged his PCL. Whitworth's ACL is intact, however. Whitworth will still get a second opinion, Rapoport added, and there is optimism that he could return this season, especially if L.A. makes the playoffs and it's currently tied for first in the NFC West. Whitworth, 37, hadn't missed a start for the Rams since 2017 and is a four-time Pro Bowler.

Kicker Kai Forbath exited early with an ankle injury. Coach Sean McVay said after the game that there were no updates on Whitworth or Forbath.
