EARTH CITY, Mo. -- The St. Louis Rams made no changes to their injury report Friday afternoon save for the ones required by the league.

In what came as no surprise, the Rams ruled the four players who have not practiced all week and didn't go again Friday out for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Those four players are safety Darian Stewart (thigh), cornerback Quinton Pointer (thigh), linebacker Jonathan Stewart (hip) and tight end Cory Harkey (leg). Of the group, only Darian Stewart had projected as a starter entering camp.

Rodney McLeod replaced Stewart after he suffered the injury against Green Bay in the second preseason game and hasn't looked back. He's expected to start in Stewart's place alongside rookie T.J. McDonald.

Pointer's injury leaves Trumaine Johnson and Brandon McGee as healthy backups at corner while Stewart's leaves the Rams with just undrafted rookies Daren Bates and Ray Ray Armstrong behind the starting trio. Without Harkey, the Rams have Jared Cook, Lance Kendricks and Mike McNeill available for game day at tight end.
